Why are my lips dry?

Our lips are very soft and delicate. Lips don’t have oil glands (like the rest of the skin), so they dry out easily. Chapped, peeling lips, or even worse a split and bleeding lip, can be pretty painful. There are many causes for dry lips, ranging from cold, dry winter air, radiator heat, air conditioning, to allergies, dehydration, or vitamin deficiency.

Hydrating the lips from the outside with a balm and from the inside by drinking plenty of water can help to speed the healing of dry, chapped lips. This homemade healing balm moisturises and soothes, while the essential oils have an antibacterial and antiviral effect that further protect your lips. In server cases, you may have to consult with a doctor.

Materials for a homemade healing lip balm recipe

What are the best lip balm ingredients? While each DIY lip balm recipe is a little bit different, these are the materials in my natural healing lip balm:

  • jojoba wax – Jojoba wax is softer and more hydrating than the other plant-based waxes. It’s a great beeswax substitute in DIY lip balm recipes. If the lip balm doesn’t have to be vegan, you can, of course, use beeswax.
  • castor oil – Moisturising castor oil keeps your kissers looking soft and supple. Fatty acids in the oil are beneficial to maintaining good skin health, and its anti-inflammatory properties may help easing the pain that results from chapped lips.
  • hemp seed oil – Hemp seed oil is highly nutritious. The nutrients and fatty acids in the oil can help to relieve dryness, strengthen the skin and protect from inflammation and oxidative damage.
  • coconut oil – Coconut oil is one of the best ingredients for dry lips and a way to make DIY lip balm without shea butter. The nourishing and hydrating qualities of the oil prevent your lips from drying out.
  • melissa (lemon balm) essential oil – Melissa’s natural antibacterial and anti-fungal properties make the essential oil a great choice for DIY lip care. The excellent antiviral qualities make the oil very effective against the herpes simplex virus (source).
  • sweet orange essential oil – Mild sweet orange essential oil reduces pain and inflammation while adding a pleasant and fresh scent to easy lip balm recipe.
  • blue mica – Using mica is optional. If you prefer an all-natural lip balm, just leave it out. The moisturizing lip balm will simply look off-white. The blue colour will not appear on your lips.

More essential oil options

Melissa and sweet orange EO give this DIY winter lip balm a refreshing and fruity scent. You can also substitute melissa with rosemary or juniper berry, or swap sweet orange for mandarin or vanilla oleoresin.
