I tend to skip the lipbalm. Instead of putting on lipbalm when my lips are dry I just drink more water and eat more hydrating fruits. Most lipbalm is made of petroleum, which is a burden on the immune system and obviously wouldn’t be helping me in the long run.
Until I tried my daughter’s super awesome lipbalm.
My daughter made this fantastic lipbalm out of healthy kitchen ingredients:
2 teaspoons organic virgin coconut oil
1 teaspoon raw honey
a few drops vanilla or peppermint extract (optional)
If the weather is warm, keep your lipbalm refrigerated when you’re not using it to prevent the coconut oil from liquifying.
I love my daughter’s lipbalm. I use it all the time. My lips stay soft and moist from the healing powers of coconut oil and raw honey.
