Winter months mean you need more of our amazing Peppermint DIY Lip Balm. This is easy to make and with all organic ingredients, it is perfect for nourishing your dry lips.
If you make this Peppermint DIY Lip Balm for yourself, you may as well make a double or triple batch to share with your friends and family. It is a great gift idea for the holidays.
I recommend you buy some of these cute little 10ml containers and fill them to add into gift baskets. They are so inexpensive, and they are super easy to fill with a little funnel. If you can, invest in simple round labels and you can create a beautiful decorative label that makes them even more unique.
This recipe makes three 10ml containers. Feel free to double or triple this recipe as needed to make batches for gifting during the holiday season.
