Homemade lip balm is easy to make at home, and DIY tinted lip balm makes it even more fun. Not only is it easy, but it’s much more frugal and allows you to control the ingredients.
Seriously, have you ever looked at the ingredients in colored cosmetics? There’s some icky stuff floating around in there and then we put it on our lips. How often do you lick your lips? You just shuddered with me, right?
While one doesn’t necessarily need color in their lip balm, this homesteader certainly wants it. Because spending time out doors, chasing chickens, working in the garden, enjoying the blossoms just opening up on the fruit trees, and hunting up wild edibles can leave a girl’s lips in serious need of moisture and some TLC.
Plus, I just plain like to have a little bit of color in my life and on my lips, and that’s reason enough, am I right?
