Homemade Lip Balm that REALLY Works



Affiliate links may have been used in this post. To read our full disclaimer, click here.

For the past month or longer my 6 year old’s lips have been so chapped that I was beginning to be concerned that she has some sort of infection.
 
I tried a Badger Lip Balm, Burts Bees Chapstick, and coconut oil and it was just getting worse. I decided to try making my own. I followed this recipe from www.homemademommy.net yesterday and put some on her lips last night before bed. Today I was SO delighted to see that her lips are almost completely healed. When I say bad, I mean they were REALLY bad. I wish I would have thought to take a before picture.

Here are the items I purchased from Amazon to make this recipe:

Organic Shea Butter 63% off
Lip Balm Tubes 50% off
Beeswax Organic Pastilles 28% off
Coconut Oil

I used a high quality olive oil instead of almond oil, just because I didn’t have any almond oil on hand. I have essential oil brands that I prefer, but I am not an EO “seller” so I will leave that choice up to you. I do recommend that you use some high quality, organic oils if possible though. Plant Therapy has affordable organic essential oils that I have found to be of high quality.
