DIY: Natural Lip Balm

Tropical, Herbal, Original Lip BalmNo one likes the feeling of chapped lips, but it’s an all-too-common especially when the weather is cold or we are exposed to the elements of the sun, wind, and rain. Our lips possess the most delicate skin on our faces, so they’re even more sensitive to summer exposure with the suns rays drying out our lips too.

doTERRA SPA Lip Balms are great for keeping your lips feeling hydrated. With Original, Tropical, and Herbal blends, the doTERRA SPA Lip Balm is a favorite in the doTERRA SPA product line.

If you want soft, hydrated, healthy lips, the doTERRA SPA Lip Balm will give you the benefits you desire—all while providing a lovely aromatic essential oil experience.

doTERRA has created three lip balms each containing a select blend of essential oils. Along with their Original blend of Wild Orange and Peppermint, experience the scents of paradise with Ylang Ylang, Clementine, and Lime essential oils found in their Tropical Lip Balm, or invigorate your senses with their Herbal Lip Balm containing Lemon Verbena, Marjoram, and Spearmint essential oils.

doTERRA’s extra-moisturizing lip balms contain coconut, moringa seed, and avocado oils along with beeswax to glide across your lips, leaving behind deep hydration that lasts throughout the day.
