Totally Natural Lip Balms

I am something of a lip balm addict, but while I could sing its praises for days on end, there's one thing I don't like about lip balm. Almost all of the standard offerings on the market contain petroleum, which is not only eco-unfriendly but also not something you really want in your mouth. Fortunately, there are plenty of great petroleum-free lip balms on the market nowadays that work just as well using other more natural oils. Here are some of my favorites.

Miessence Jaffa Lip Balm, $8.95, available here. This yummy orange- and vanilla-flavored balm uses cocoa butter, safflower, and avocado oils in an easy-to-squeeze tube.

Hamadi Lip Balm, $10, available here. This classy balm soothes with shea butter, avocado oil, and jojoba oil, while tea tree oil acts as a toner.

Nature's Gate Organics Neroli Orange & Chocolate Mint Lip Balm , $3.50, available here. This cute little tin contains a formula that uses castor seed oil, beeswax, apricot kernel oil, and several other certified organic ingredients.

To see the rest,

Burt's Bees Honey Lip Balm, $2.49, available here. A classic, reliable lip balm, Burt's version contains beeswax (of course) plus almond and coconut oils.

Mountain Ocean Lip Trip SPF 15, $3.95, available here. Hands down the best option for outdoors activities, this sunscreen-enforced lip balm has a 100 percent beeswax base and is long-lasting to protect you from wind, sun, and other elements.

The Merry Hempsters Peppermint Vegan Hemp Lip Balm, $1.99, available here. This 100 percent natural balm is incredibly eco-friendly, relying on rosemary extract and cannabis sativa seed oil to moisturize. (And no, it won't get you high.)
