DIY Lip Balm Recipe

I am a bit embarrassed to admit just how much lip balm I buy from the store.  I KNOW that there is stuff in it I don’t care for, but I love the stuff I use!  You know what I don’t love?  When I run out.  When I have about 5 tubes of it around the house but they are all empty or have gotten busted off and stuck in the cap and my lips are sitting here begging for some love.  That seems like a good reason to try a new lip balm, right?  I love using my essential oils for any reason I can.  Knowing there is less of the bad stuff that I’m using makes me feel good and makes me feel like I’m setting a great example for the kids.
