    Hi Margo! :wave:

    Yonks ago you gave me a link to heaps of home made lotions and potions..one was for lip balm. I can’t find that thread now….but wondered if you may recall that link??

    Would appreciate it.

    I do a lipbalm from petroleum jelly, beeswax and herb infusion.

    Forgotten the complete herb list, know it included yarrow, rosepetals, carnation petals, calendula petals, myrrh, yarrow and catmint at one stage!

    The catmint is really nice, gives a good flavour and a warming effect. I just rewarm the stock every so often, sieve out the plant bits and decant some, add new plant bits and allow to reharden and sit while it infuses, until next season or whenever.
