Do you use lip balm like it's your job? This silky, smooth DIY Natural Lip Balm is moisturizing and soothing. Change that chapped pout right into a smile!

I use lip balm like it’s my job! There are always 4-5 tubes lying around between my coat pockets, nightstand, and various bags.  That is- unless I loose them.

It is moisturizing, smooth, healing, and tastes great! I love that I can make it in minutes and that I can make a variety of flavors to please my smackers!  (more…)
