Ditch & Switch Lip Balm

Ditch and Switch Lip Balm

As the gatekeepers of our home we have such a great opportunity to bring in healthy products for ourselves and families! Join us as we detox our homes and switch out conventional products for cleaner, greener and better options! Let’s make a simple switch by ditching conventional Chapstick and lip balms for Young Living lip balm!

Sadly conventional products are chock full of synthetic ingredients that wreak havoc on the body, especially over time, disrupting hormones, causing allergies (often low-level so we barely notice!), and filling our systems with chemicals that cause damage over time. And none of us want that for ourselves or our families!!

The skin of your lips is one of the most sensitive and absorbent areas of your body, so we want to make sure what we apply to that skin is safe and healthy! The skin on your body has multiple layers, but the outermost layer on your lips is far thinner than it is anywhere else on your body. Your lips also don't have any sebaceous glands to keep the skin moisturised, so their only source of moisture is saliva. This is why the lips can easily become dry and chapped, especially during the very cold and very hot months!

The Young Living lip balms are one of our favourite products. In fact, I had never actually used an entire tube of lip balm before I tried the YL ones, and now I scrape out every bit of it! Whether you choose Lavender, Grapefruit, Cinnamon and holiday-exclusive Vanillamint, you really can’t go wrong.

Because they are formulated with coconut oil, jojoba oil, beeswax, wolfberry seed oil and Vitamin E, all of the Young Living lip balms are incredibly moisturizing and help prevent skin dehydration, giving you soft, smooth lips! Lavender is soothing and helps smooth dry skin. Grapefruit is infused with wolfberry seed oil and antioxidants, and Cinnamint is refreshing with cinnamon and peppermint! NO synthetic ingredients. NO artificial colorings. NO unnecessary fillers. AND you can bet that every ingredient used is of the highest quality.

Since it is the season of gifting, these lip balms also make a fun stocking stuffer or something cute to add to a gift or to tie on top!

How to:

  • Use your Young Living lip balm daily in place of conventional Chapsticks or lip balms. I keep one in my purse and one beside the bed!
  • Apply Lavender lip balm to chapped noses and wind-burnt cheeks! This is a great way to keep noses happy if you get the sniffles.
  • Keep a Lavender lip balm in your first aid kit to use as a quick carrier stick or to soothe small cuts and scrapes!

Gift Ideas:

  • Lavender or Grapefruit lip balm, a bath bomb & DIY roller in a mason jar with festive paper or ribbon.
  • Cinnamint lip balm, a Savvy Minerals lipstick and Savvy Minerals Poppy Seed Lip Scrub.
  • Lavender lip balm, Lavender bath gel, Lavender Hand & Body Lotion.
  • Grapefruit lip balm & CBD Beauty Boost
  • Grapefruit lip balm, a fun diffuser & pre-made diffuser blend (this is always a hit with my high school and college age nieces!)
  • Add a lip balm or two to a stocking! Tie them together with festive ribbon.
  • Tie a lip balm on top of a gift with a pretty ribbon and a fun gift tag.

Join us this month as we make this simple swap that can have a huge impact on our overall health. Plus we will give the gift of wellness and ditch the fragranced, coloured products from conventional stores!
