Winter is coming and so are chapped lips. This simple lip balm is perfect for those cold, dry months ahead and uses all natural ingredients. It’s easy to adjust the recipe for smaller or larger batches as the ratio of ingredients is 1:1:1. Make a little for yourself or a lot to give to friends and family. Enjoy!
