Last night, as my mister and I were getting ready to go out for a date (a rare occurrence with a 6-year-old and my partner’s work schedule) I was prettying up in the bathroom and when I put on my favorite shade of lipstick I could suddenly see that my lips were MUCH dryer than I’d thought. Hmm… I suppose I haven’t been keeping up with my lip balm routine as well as I try to and it’s been a rather dry winter. Whoops. Time to fix them up — no more flaky dry skin on my lips, please!

Today I thought I might share some cool DIY lip balm ideas that incorporate all of the essential oils that I love with the hopes that one of these recipes will soothe my poor dry lips — and yours too! Check them out and let me know if you find a favorite. Peace!

This Lavender Rose Lip Balm from Rustic Wedding Chic would smell incredible! I’m not usually huge into florals, but Rose Essential Oils smells heavenly.

I love how Barb at Mom Off Track decorated the tubes of her Lavender Orange Lip Balm with washi tape! Definitely, a cute idea — and they’d make a great gift.

Mmm, I really want to try this Peppermint Cocoa Lip Balm from Essentially Eclectic. It would smell just like Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream… which just happens to be my mister’s favorite. I think he’d use it too!

This DIY Beeswax Lip Balm from Mom Prepares incorporates Peppermint and Rosemary essential oils. I love the scent of rosemary. It’s a very wintry smell to me since I use it a lot in my diffuser during the cold season.
