Simple Natural Living: How To Make Your Own Natural Lip Balm

Happy friday, friends! It's finally starting to feel like spring! And chances are your lips are fairly chapped after that long, harsh winter. So, here's a super simple DIY all natural lip balm to save the day. And you can probably find all the ingredients in your kitchen pantry!

What you'll need :
  • coconut oil
  • raw honey
  • essential lavender oil
  • small, air-tight container
  • spoon
  • mixing straw or toothpick
First, scoop half a teaspoon of coconut oil into a small cup (a shot glass or something similar works well.) Then, add in a quarter teaspoon of raw honey. Now add just a single drop of essential lavender oil. Mix the ingredients until the honey and coconut oil are thoroughly blended and transfer everything to a small air-tight container. I recycled an old lip balm container for mine. The coconut oil and honey work together to soften, moisturize and protect your dry lips. And the lavender/honey scent is wonderfully calming. Use it as often as you'd like and store it in a dark, cool place when you're not. 

Have a wonderful, chapped-free weekend!
