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!

DIY Natural Lip Balm *Moisturizing and Soothing*

Making my own DIY Natural Lip Balm was easier than I thought.  Using a few ingredients, many of which I already had in my house, I had many tubes of lip-smacking goodness! Now, I always have an extra stash on hand and spend a fraction of the cost for them!

Here’s why it works:

  • Shea butter is a nutrient rich humectant acting to soften and seal in moisture.
  • Coconut oil contains fatty acids and antioxidants that help to heal and soothe skin
  • Beeswax seals in moisture and coats the lips.
  • Vitamin E soothes and moisturizes lips.
  • Young Living Essential Oils not only create an amazing flavor for the lip balm, the oils have properties that soothe, moisturize, and promote healthy lips.

Here’s what you need:

Here’s what you do:

  1. In a double boiler, melt the shea butter, coconut oil, and beeswax until it is liquefied. Remove from the heat once liquefied.
  2. Add the vitamin E oil.  Add 8 drops of Young Living Essential Oils of your choice. Stir to incorporate.
  3. Pour into the containers using an eyedropper and allow to cool.

I like to store my new lip balms in the refrigerator.  It is certainly not necessary but it does keep them hardened and I know they will last until I am ready to use them. Enjoy your smooth, moisturized smackers!
