DIY Natural Lip Balm for Chapped Lips
I was pretty much known for my lip balm obsession back in the day. I think I had every chapstick on the market. And at the end of the day, I always had chapped lips!
A friend told me that you can get addicted to chapstick and lip balm and I believed it. My lips were constantly chapped. What was going on here?
Turns out I wasn’t addicted to lip balm, the lip balms were just completely drying my poor lips out.
Check out this article to understand why lip balm could actually make your chapped lips worse.
So basically, it’s all about the ingredients in your lip balm.
After inspecting some ingredients on natural lip balms, I decided to whip up my own and I have to say, it is super moisturizing on my lips! I only have to apply it once or maybe twice a day.
Goodbye Chapped Lips!
I used occlusive agents, which if you read the article above, create a physical barrier on your lips to prevent water loss. That’s the ticket! Keep the moisture in, not out!
The result is a super moisturizing lip balm with benefits. The benefits are you can use it for more than just chapped lips. I apply it under and around my eyes, on dry patches and also on my cuticles. I love a good multipurpose product!
I consider this my personal beauty balm because I like to use Rose Essential Oil when I make it. Rose is amazing for your skin! It promotes a healthy and even complexion, reduces scarring and imperfections and helps with redness.
If you don’t have or can’t afford Rose essential oil (it’s not cheap!), just use your favorite essential oil or combination of essential oils that you wouldn’t mind tasting (since it goes on your lips ya know?!)
Good essential oil combinations for DIY Lip Balm:
Peppermint + Wild Orange
Peppermint + Lemon
Lemon + Rosemary
Rosemary + Lavender
