Mint Lip Balm 600 WM

How on earth did I end up making Peppermint Lip Balm?! I’ve been on a DIY kick lately, can you tell?  This one was spurred by the fact that my 4 year old was watching me put some lip balm on the other day.  Of course, she wanted some and only then was it that I double checked this particular used-to-be crunchy brand for ingredients.  Needless to say there were some unpronounceable ones so although a few doses of it won’t kill you, I don’t think using it every day would be a great idea either.

This recipe may look daunting but it’s actually pretty easy! And a stick will last you a good while so it’s not like you’ll be making it every week anyway.

I love peppermint lip balm but of course you could substitute whatever essential oil you’d like if you have a different preference.

Now this is a lip balm I’m happy to have my 4 year old apply every day.
