I'm only missing the aloe vera gel. Will remedy that tomorrow morning and try this asap.

Just wanted to say this is a great recipe. I've made it three times and will continue. Although it is a skin moisturizing cream, I have found it to be a superb way to keep my lips soft. I use this first and let it soak in. Then I use Annie's Winter Lip Balm afterwards. My lips have never been in such good shape!
