Creamsicle Lip Balm with Wild Orange Essential Oil


Kiss dry lips goodbye with this sunny DIY Wild Orange essential oil lip balm recipe. Lip balm is a must-have, but unfortunately, store-bought versions can contain artificial fragrances and salicylic acid that can actually irritate lips and cause additional dryness. Since dryness isn’t the result you want after moisturizing, opting for a naturally sourced lip balm that contains ingredients you trust is the right way to go. 

​​​​​​​By being selective about the naturally sourced ingredients you use and combining them with the beautiful aromas of essential oils, you can step out into the sun armed with a lip balm that soothes and smooths.  With this easy-to-make home recipe and the fresh flavour of a favourite summer treat, you’ll have soft, summery lips in no time.
