Perfume Locket. Today I have an exciting new feature we are rolling out on Glamour and Grace!

Perfume Locket

I have asked my good friend Sarah Montes, illustrator and crafter extraordinaire, to come and share a fabulous new DIY idea each month! This month she is sharing something really unique that I know you all will love! I will let Sarah take it away! All Natural Lip Balm. The week leading up to the new year wasn't exactly how I had pictured it.

All Natural Lip Balm

It was the last week of the boys winter break. I had envisioned walks around downtown looking at the lights, taking down the Christmas tree together, continuing our holiday baking marathon and maybe even a little post Christmas mall browsing. But alas, none of those things happened. The flu happened. Or rather, what I guess must have been the flu. Thankfully, I had made a big batch of lip balm the week before Christmas to give as little handmade gifts to my girlfriends. This recipe is super simple. The recipe came from this blog last year and I tweaked it a bit and she grabbed it from this book where she had tweaked it a bit. Sweet Orange Lip Balm 8 Tablespoons Coconut Oil 3 Tablespoons Beeswax 1.5 Tablespoons Raw Honey 30 drops Sweet Orange essential oil (if you want color) 1/2 stick of natural lipstick (I like Jane Iredale and Josie Moran) Remove mixture from heat, and add peppermint oil and lipstick.
