A good lip balm can be pretty pricey in the store, and while you can read the ingredients on the package, you never know what quality those ingredients are. Making your own DIY lip balm recipe with essential oils not only saves you a lot of money, it ensures you know what's in your lip balm!

A homemade lip balm recipe makes great gifts and stocking stuffers. We make a batch of 50 or more at a time from our DIY lip balm recipe and keep it on hand to give to people. When I tuck a few extras of my homemade lip balm recipe into my purse, I put my name on mine so I know which I've used, then I always have the extras to giveaway when someone needs one.
