It’s cranberry season!
You don’t have to spend your afternoons sippin’ Oceanspray
or wading through bogs to get close to the season’s favorite berry. With this
homemade recipe—perf for gifts or personal use—you’ll be rockin’ an au
naturale runway-style pout.
What You’ll Need:
1 tablespoon almond oil
10 fresh cranberries
1 teaspoon honey
Tubes or pots for lip balm (find ‘em at any drugstore)
What You’ll Do:
Pour the almond oil, cranberries and honey into a bowl and
microwave for short stints until it begins to boil. Remove the bowl, grab your
spoon and gently crush the cranberries. Stir the mixture well, then strain the
liquid through a fine sieve to remove the bits of cranberry that remain. Pour
the lip balm into the containers you’ve chosen and get ready to go red.
Tip: Want a little extra shine? Add a teaspoon of
petroleum jelly to your mixture before microwaving.
Gift it! Wrap your pot of lip balm in some clear cellophane, tie with a festive ribbon and toss it in a stocking, on your bestie's desk or in gift basket. Sweet!
