This combination can relieve and cure your chapped lips.  First wet lips with warm water, this will open up the pores to allow the honey to soak into your lips. Apply a thin layer of honey on the lips and allow it to dry for a few seconds to seal the moisture in. Now put a layer of petroleum jelly over the honey. Let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Remove the combo with a cotton swab dipped in warm water. Repeat the process once a day for a few days until your lips have softened and are no longer cracked.
