DIY Natural Lip Balm *Moisturizing and Soothing*

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. You all know the fright that occurs when you can’t find your lip balm!  :0   Store-bought natural lip balms cost about $4+ each, and that adds up!   I decided to take matters into my own hands and make my own so I would always have a stash of my DIY Natural Lip Balm on hand, while not breaking the bank!  I am SO glad that I did.  I LOVE this recipe.  I don’t see myself having to buy store-bought lip balm again! 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…)

If you had asked me 2 years ago if I would make most of my own skin and bodycare products, I would have said “HECK NO!” I had this preconception that making my own products would be expensive, time consuming, and require science-like precision and expertise. WRONG!  In my recent quest to rid my life of as many products that contain synthetic and harmful chemicals as possible, I have created some really amazing products that work for me, better than most store-bought products out there.  My newest creation is this DIY Natural Moisturizing Shampoo Scented with Rosemary, Lavender, and Tea Tree Oil.

This shampoo works WONDERS for keeping things soft, smooth, and frizz-free.  The best part it is- IT TAKES MINUTES TO MAKE…. (more…)
