If you are looking for a homemade lip balm recipe that is simple to make and only uses natural ingredients that are healthy for your lips then you will really like this recipe.
I like to make recipes that everyone in my family can use. The guys, the gals, the little grand kids, etc.
This is one of those recipes that comes in handy for everyone involved. Because I have such a large extended family I usually double the recipe to make enough for one and all. By the way, they make great little gifts for someone!
If you are like me you probably have lip balms of one kind or another hidden all over the place – in your purse, the luggage you may rarely use, the computer case, your desk drawer, the kitchen miscellaneous drawer, etc.
It’s easy to put one aside and forget where it is – or perhaps you like them to be convenient so have them stored everywhere?
No matter the reason this is one recipe I think you will want to keep handy. It is made with natural nourishing ingredients for your lips, and has just a hint of peppermint smell from the infused peppermint oil.
I like using infused peppermint oil instead of peppermint essential oil in body products because it gives that lovely minty smell without me having to worry that it may cause a skin reaction.
Now mind you – there are are some people that are allergic to the mint family plants – if you are, just use plain sweet almond oil. You will still like the unscented version!
