Chapped Lip Salve

1/4 cup paraffin
1/4 cup petroleum jelly
Few drops oil of lemon or other scent (optional)

In an enamel or glass double boiler, melt the paraffin slowly, stirring constantly until completely melted. Add the petroleum jelly, stirring until completely combined. Remove from heat and add the scent, if desired. While the salve is still liquid, pour into a container with a tight-fitting lid. For carrying convenience, you can pour a small amount of the salve into a tiny pillbox or fancy tin.

Makes 4 ounces.
