I had to share an absolutely brilliant page from Jan “The Nerdy Farm Wife” on how to make your own natural herbal lip balms. It really goes into great detail, giving numerous recipes and even providing sources for the tubes and labels. In all honesty I think it provides everything you need to be a lip balm pro!
Whenever something is intended for skin application I always think that natural and organic is the way to go. I don’t want to be putting some chemical on my skin that in 20 years time will be banned owing to some unknown health risk that takes a number of years to surface!
One thing I want to add is that it’s not absolutely required to use plastic lip balm tubes. I’m only saying this because I am somewhat down on the whole notion of using disposable plastic and am attempting to avoid it. There’s nothing stopping you using a small jar or tin for your lip balm, and using a good ole’ fingertip to apply the balm to your lips.
Note (important) that there are only certain essential oils that are safe for use in lip balm – because the lips are sensitive. Fortunately, Jan has provided a list of these too. They are pretty much the flavors you see in existing ‘natural’ lip balms:
Lime (if distilled)
Clove (use sparingly as in one or two drops per recipe max)
Camphor (use sparingly in formulas intended for cold sores, 2 to 4 drops)
Tea Tree Oil (anti-bacterial, anti-viral, can overpower the scent of your lip balm so use sparingly)

😳 What Tinnitus Does To Your Brain Cells (And How To Stop It)
After 47 years of studies and countless brain scans done on more than 2,400 tinnitus patients, scientists at the MIT Institute found that in a shocking 96% of cases, tinnitus was actually shrinking their brain cells.
As it turns out, tinnitus and brain health are strongly linked.

Is because they are using something called "the wire method", a simple protocol inspired by a classified surgery on deaf people from the 1950s...

The #1 Muscle That Eliminates Joint And Back Pain, Anxiety And Looking Fat
By Mike Westerdal CPT
Can you guess which muscle in your body is the #1 muscle that eliminates joint and back pain, anxiety and looking fat?
This is especially important if you spend a significant amount of time sitting every day (I do, and this really affects me in a big way!)
Working this "hidden survival muscle" that most people are simply not training because no-one ever taught them how will boost your body shape, energy levels, immune system, sexual function, strength and athletic performance when unlocked.
If this "hidden" most powerful primal muscle is healthy, we are healthy.
