Who doesn't have serious collection of lip balms, lip glosses, and other waxy products to protect their kisser.

Check out this simple recipe for making your own lip balm at home. The perfect way to reuse some of the many lip balm containers you might already have.

You need beeswax, jojoba oil and some peppermint or other essential oils. Grab three empty containers and you're all set.

If you have like minded friends who don't mind a little recycling, why not cover the old tube with some pretty paper or a bit of magazine page? You could customize the tubes for your friends and give a nice little gift. Or, simply peel off the already existing sticker and leave the tube plain.

    What should I do when my lips go dry and cracked? Because, like Isabelle, I put lip balm on and then they go cracked again. Please tell me how to fix this.
