    Vitamin E Balm

    Sunflower oil is high in vitamin E. Use this moisturizing balm on the lips, the tips of the hair or underneath the eyes. It can also be used in place of nail polish to add shine to the fingernails.

    1 tablespoon beeswax
    4 tablespoons oil, preferably sunflower oil

    Heat beeswax and oil in a double boiler until melted. Pour into a small tin. Let cool.
