Easy Lip Balm Recipes

Lip balm is one of my favorite things to make myself.  Making it yourself ensures there is no alcohol, preservatives or chemicals touching your delicate lips.  Alcohol and other chemicals can irritate your lips, which makes you use more balm.

For most of these recipes, you will need a double boiler.  Don't have one?  Make one with a glass bowl that can withstand high heat, so look for one that is oven safe.  The bottom of the glass bowl should not touch the bottom of the pan, so lift it with something.  I use a canning jar ring.

For containers, you can use small jars with lids or a traditional tube.  Most recipes are hard enough to work well in either one.  I prefer to use the jars just because they are easier for me to fill.
