The homemade lip balm is SO EASY to make. You can make it in 10 minutes or less. It has only four ingredients, all of which are completely natural. I love that I don’t have to worry about added chemicals like parabens, petroleum based chemicals and various forms of alcohol added into store bought lip balms that can actually end up making lips more damaged in the long run.
These would make awesome gifts for friends and family.
