Homemade DIY Lip Balm is a my favourite holiday gift idea. I’ve been working on perfecting my basic recipe for years and I finally feel like I’ve created a true winner. These lip balms are firm to the touch but soften beautifully upon contact with your lips.
I’ve been creating my own homemade lip balms every since I discovered that store-bought lip products actually contain ingredients that dry out the lips, causing you to need to reapply constantly in order to keep your lips soft and smooth. They also typically contain ingredients than can cause irritation and even some that are suspected carcinogens. Here’s my list of the worst ingredients to look out for when purchasing a lip product:
This homemade lip balm is seriously cheap and easy to make (I promise) and contains real ingredients that actually moisturize dried-out winter lips. This recipe also happens to be incredibly delicious thanks to a touch of honey and peppermint essential oil.
This natural homemade lip balm recipe is easy to make, tastes great and uses completely natural ingredients. Try my DIY recipe as an alternative to commercial lip products that can actually be drying to the skin.
