Peppermint Lip Balm Recipe - 100% Natural

I am completely addicted to lip balm.  I have tubes of it stashed everywhere -- in my purse, in the kitchen, on the shelf by my back door.

Store bought lip balm, and I'm talking about the "good stuff," can get expensive. But handcrafted balm is a fairly easy product to make, and will save you money in the long run. Plus you can customize it any way you like. My favorite is always peppermint, though.

This Peppermint Lip Balm recipe uses ingredients that you can find at your local health food store or craft store. It's completely natural and so good for your lips.

Buy cute tins and tubes at your local craft store, or you can get some at online suppliers.  Bramble Berry is a good place to start.
