DIY Sore Spot Lip Treatment


DIY Sore Spot Lip Treatment

Unfortunately, I’ve been getting sores on my lips periodically since I was a very little girl. I went a year without a single sore, however these last few months I’ve been getting them pretty regularly.

I’ve used Zovirax, l-lysine, Abreva, and various essential oil combinations with little improvement until using this fabulous combination. After only two applications the deep throbbing feeling subsides. I use it 2-3 times daily, depending on how soon I start applying, for 1-4 days. This DIY recipe is about a 3% dilution, which is safe for acute spot treatment.

What you’ll need:
What you’ll do:
  1. Melt Beeswax in a double boiler.
  2. Add coconut oil to melted beeswax over the double boiler. (melt on low and remove as soon as melted otherwise you run the risk of getting gritty coconut oil)
  3. After melted remove from heat.
  4. Add essential oils.
  5. Let cool slightly and whip for about 1 minute.
  6. Put a small dap on a q-tip and apply to affected area.
