Oh how I LOVE a good do-it-yourself project.

Now, please don’t get me wrong…I am by NO means the “Pinterest Mom” whose house is full of cute and well-executed DIY projects. I may be quite the opposite, actually. On evenings when the kids are in bed, and I actually have some quiet time without little hands pulling me every which way, I love scouring Pinterest for great recipe ideas, and inspirational images that I can only dream would one day become reality for decorating or remodeling my home.

But this DIY project in particular is one of my favorites because, who doesn’t love a good lip balm? And also…it’s EASY and hard to screw up. Back before I started using essential oils, I’d go through all sorts of lip balms and never found one that I really loved. Sure, there were brands I tolerated, but none that actually felt like they were doing my lips any good.

So, I began searching for an easy recipe, and I came across a few different ones. I decided to take the best parts of the few I found, and make my own. Now I make these in bulk and give them away at classes I teach, or to friends and family, and they are always a hit. Plus, you can totally customize these to whatever “flavor” you prefer. I happen to like the refreshment of Peppermint, personally.

I love this recipe, because it makes several little containers worth of lip balm, so you can make these as party favors, or even gifts for family and friends!
