Lip balm is extremely easy to make and here are some reasons why you should.

I can proudly say that I don’t have many addictions in my life: I’m not addicted to cigarettes, coffee, chocolate or any other of the main culprits. But I’ve had one addiction ever since I’ve started using it as a teenager: lip balm!

I always had to have it close, use it frequently and I couldn’t go to sleep without applying some. Now that I pay very close attention to what I put in and on my body I understand this addiction much better: these products are designed in a way that only give short term relief but then need to be reapplied.

Since I’ve changed to natural lip balm and even making my own (which is much cheaper and sooo easy) my lips are much better hydrated and I need to use it much less frequently.
