Lurie Garden Rooftop Honey Lip Balm
Every year, the plants of the Lurie Garden are visited by thousands of honeybees. They
come from the rooftop hives on several downtown buildings, including the Cultural
Center and City Hall. You can buy Chicago Honey Co-op’s Rooftop Honey at the
Downtown Farmstand – we use it to make this balm.
1 cup sweet almond oil
1/2 cup beeswax, grated or chopped
2 Tablespoons honey
Place almond oil and beeswax in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 1
minute or until mixture melts. (Alternatively you can heat the oil and beeswax in a
stainless steel pot on the stove set to low.) Whisk honey into beeswax mixture. Stir well
until completely mixed together. Carefully pour into small containers with lids. Set aside
to cool completely. Apply to lips as a moisturizer or on top of lipstick for extra shine.
Makes about 1-1/2 cups or 15 1-ounce tins..
*Sweet almond oil and beeswax can be found at natural food stores such as Whole Foods.
Local honey is preferred for this recipe. W
