But despite their aim to nourish our lips with natural ingredients, the majority of lip balms are packed full of petrol derivatives, alcohols, silicone, polymer, emulsifiers, toxic ingredients, and questionable origins. To avoid having to choose between the thousands of lip balms out there, you can make your own! This easy DIY recipe will guarantee you a healthy, natural, and palm oil-free lip balm. We’ll give you our recipe and a little extra tip: rather than choosing just one or two plant oils, use our blend of nourishing and soothing plant oils that are organic, pure, and cold-pressed.
