DIY Essential Oil Lip Balm Recipe
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.
