Try my creamy smooth chamomile lip balm recipe and your lips will thank you!
Do you go through a lot of lip balm? I like to apply it all day long to keep my lips soft and moisturized.

I can assure you, once you see how quick and affordable it is to make your own, you won’t go back to store bought lip balm again!
