Hi, I am pleased that you found my step by step method of explaining the cure to be more helpful in understanding how I cured myself of this rotten condition.
I think in my original post I said a pinch of Epsom Salts into a small egg cup shot glass or something similar. I am aware of the limitations of writing a post on such a forum as this in order to help people to try this cure, as a few have complained of dry lips etc....which tells me that they are absolutely doing it wrong.
I couldnt think of a better way of explaining the quantity of epsom salt, so I measured what I would call a pinch onto a ruler and it is, half a centimetre in length and width put into the bottom of an egg cup or glass of a similar size .When the salts are topped up with water it should be soothing and never salty to effect drying lips. I hate to think what amount some people have used, hence the tutorial.
Yes my coconut oil is also solid its cold in the UK now, so I got small plastic containers from Prime mark for a pound which is for putting lip gloss in or anything else, so I put a teaspoon of coconut oil into one of these which i carry around in my bag.
Dont worry about the coconut oil being solid once you put it on your lips after the soak or whenever you use it, it melts straight away.
I used a stainless steel eggcup holder
and I used warm water, you can feel the bubbles of the Epsom Salts penetrate the skin better, I am only saying that because I didnt use a plastic eggcup holder. But results should be the same.
Lemons use after 30 days. Its better to allow the Epsom Salts to do its work for the alloted time with the coconut oil as a moisturiser as given in the post.
