    Green Mandarin, Calendula, & Vanilla Lip Balm Recipe

    Before I began making my own body products, I tried a lot of different kinds of lip balm. I found many that I liked . . . but none that I really fell in love with.

    When I can’t find what I want . . . I make it!

    Peppermint Mandarin Holiday Lip Balm Recipe

    December 08, 2014

    Lip Balm - A Love Story

    July 07, 2008

    I've never enjoyed the waxy feel of over-the-counter lip balm. When people talk about their lip balm addictions, or my girl friends reach into their purses for gloss several times in the course of a few hours, I'm the one scratching my head.
