A good lip balm can be pretty pricey in the store, and while you can read the ingredients on the package, you never know what quality those ingredients are. Making your own DIY essential oil lip balm not only saves you a lot of money, it ensures you know what's in your lip balm!

Homemade lip balm makes great gifts and stocking stuffers. We make a batch of 50 or more at a time and keep on hand to give to people. When I tuck a few extras into my purse I put my name on mine so I know which I've used, then I always have the extras to giveaway when someone needs one.

Have you ever made lip balm before? If you make mine, I'd love to hear how you liked it!

Safety & Drug Interactions

Are you sure you're using essential oils safely and effectively? Are you confused by dilutions and conversions? 

Let me help you by taking out the guesswork. Download my FREE dilution chart guide HERE!

When it comes to drug interactions and contraindications, there are literally textbooks devoted to the study of essential oil safety and, as a trained researcher and doctor, I think it’s important to note that there is virtually no research out there discussing how essential oils interact with drugs in long-term human clinical trials. This means that essential oil safety is still a wild frontier in the science community and no one really knows (for certain) how essential oils will interact with drugs or your body.

Nonetheless, properly diluting your essential oils is fundamental to safety and effectiveness because they are highly concentrated plant compounds. To help you along your journey, I have a created an easy-to-use dilution guide that you can download for FREE to make sure that all of your topical applications are safe and effective for the entire family.
