I just read in Variety magazine that women swallow 4 pounds of lipstick in their lifetime. Imagine a pound of butter, in lipstick, and eating four of them. And have you checked the ingredients in lipstick lately? Here’s an idea–make your own with all healthy ingredients, then at least you know what you’re eating. This recipe from the National Honey Board uses yummy ingredients to make your kisser sweet and shiny, and you can feel free to lick your lips all day long.
1 tablespoon sweet almond oil
10 fresh cranberries
1 teaspoon honey
1 drop vitamin E oil
Mix all the ingredients together in the bowl of a double boiler over medium heat and stir until the mixture just begins to boil. Stir well and gently crush the berries. Cool mixture for five minutes and then strain through a fine sieve to remove all the fruit pieces. Stir again and set aside to cool completely. When cool, transfer into a small jar.
