The Ultimate List of Homemade Lip Balm Recipes

The Ultimate List of Homemade Lip Balm Recipes

Let’s face it, cold, dry winter weather wreaks havoc on lips. Come to think of it, summer isn’t much better with the heat and blazing sunshine. The general wear and tear our lips face often result in dry, flaky, chapped and cracked lips that are in desperate need of a little TLC.

Nothing feels quite as good as rubbing a little balm on your tender, raw lips. Unfortunately, commercial lip balm can be expensive and also full of chemicals like artificial sweeteners, fragrance, and parabens. A much cheaper and safer approach is to make your own lip balm so you can control all the ingredients in your balm. Lip balm also makes a quick and easy DIY gift idea, and once you see how quick and easy it is to make, you’ll be making it for everyone you know.

Here’s our list of the top lip balm recipes that will leave your lips feeling and smelling amazing.
