I had no idea you could make your own lip balm! This looks like such a cool DIY beauty idea, especially as those premade lip balms can get expensive.

When I think of peppermint, I think of York peppermint patties and how refreshing they are. I am wondering though, is there a substitute for the petroluem jelly? I would rather not use that in a homemade lip balm.

My significat other is an avid lip balm wearer. The problem is, he will forget and leave the lip balm stick in a pocket and either it mysteriously disappears in a pocket for ages or washed and dryed rendering it useless. When I make lip balm and use containers like these that problem vanished. Thanks for the free recipe.

Fantastic! Is that stored in an old altoid tin? What an exciting idea.

The winter season with its chilly winds is so hard on my skin and lips! This is such a quick, cost-effective solution. Peppermint and vanilla are two of my favorites it's like this homemade lip balm was meant for me!
