17 Easy DIY Lip Balms That Are Better Than Store-Bought Versions

I don’t know about you, but when I normally think about getting new lip balm, I think about booking it to the nearest drugstore to pick up three before my lips become chapped. All that changed when I was browsing on Pinterest for easy beauty DIYs and I came across some DIY lip balm tutorials. I thought that making your own lip balm would be a long, difficult process, but it’s actually really simple and kind of awesome.

I wondered why I never thought to make my own lip balm before. I guess it was because there are so many varieties in the stores that I never considered any alternatives. You may be able to get everything from bubblegum to white chocolate lip balm in the stores, but there is no limit to what delicious flavors you can make on your own. Whatever your little mind thinks would be delicious you can make into a balm… provided that you find the right ingredients.

And did I mention the best part about making lip balm? It’s that it’s so easy. You don’t need to be a chemistry major to do it. You just need a couple of ingredients and some place to store your beauty concoction. If you can make a body scrub, you can make a lip balm. Promise. If you’re feeling inspired, here are 17 easy flavored lip balm DIYs to get you started.
