DIY :: lip balm

DIY-Lip-Balm-7Lip balm is kind of a big deal at my home. I usually have one next to the bedside, one on the dresser, one in the “catch everything” kitchen drawer, one in the office drawer, and that’s not to mention the one in the bathroom and my purse. Lip balm is serious business and as much as I like the coloured tints and fancy root beer smells, my favourite is always a simple mix of natural products that soothes and moistures my dry lips. Once you gathered up your ingredients, it’s as easy as bi! bam! bap!

Once liquidfied, add the almond oil and pour the mixture into the containers (I used a ladle, but I have poured it in directly using the spout from the pot). Let cool and solidfy!
