Exploring Skin Care Options

I am trying to teach my children some of the basics about natural skin care. Along with this goes teaching them techniques for making our own products whenever possible.

The kids and I had fun this afternoon creating a batch of lip balm created with all natural ingredients. They were fascinated by the concoction of natural ingredients that we melted. After it was all melted and everyone had poured at least one thing into the sauce pan, we flavored it with natural almond flavoring and poured it into the lip balm tubes. Absolutely neat!

We now have a sizable supply of all natural lip balm that should last us a long time. Not only is it all natural, it was an economical process also. Lip balm…at least the good stuff…isn’t cheap!
