Homemade Lavender Lemon Lip Balm

Homemade lavender lemon lip balm - Dr. Axe

This homemade lavender lemon lip balm recipe is amazing. Rather than putting toxic chemicals onto your skin and mouth, try this recipe! It provides nourishment and hydration for dry, cracked lips without the negative side effects. Try it today.

Note: Citrus essentials oils are highly concentrated and are full of healthy acidic properties. Because of this, we recommend you use glass or tin containers when storing them so they do not eat away any of the plastic. Also, because citrus oils trigger photo sensitivity issues when used in the sun, I recommend hydrating lips with this balm in the evening.
