I don’t know about where you are, but here in Maryland, winter has just decided to show up, and with it dry air which means dry, chapped lips. I live on lip balm in the winter months and always have one tucked away anywhere I spend more than 10 minutes of my day. I really like a few brands, but it can get expensive and some have all kinds of chemicals in them. I decided I needed to find an alternative so, I did some research and came up with a few recipes that I kinda merged together to make my own DIY lip balm.
I will say, the upfront cost is more than buying a tube of lip balm at your local store, but this recipe filled 7 of my little tins (10 ml) and then I have a ton of left over supplies to try out new scents and such! You can try this with any oil you love, but I am in love with this lavender and peppermint combo that my favorite yoga teacher turned me onto. This stuff is great and really moisturizes my lips, it’s smooth and smells like heaven!
