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.)

Sugars, I was actually applying the Burt's Bees Honey lip balm while I clicked on this tab! I just bought it last week. I like it -- it doesn't feel greasy or waxy - just the right touch of smooth moisture.

A lot of people are allergic to cocoa butter, which is used as an emollient in a lot of lip balms. I know this because I get my favorite all-natural lip balm at Lush, and they make sure to let people know that it contains cocoa butter in case of allergies. I bet Burt's Bees contains it, too.

Just a warning, before you switch lip glosses, make sure you arent allergic to anything in these products. My friend just got her first tube of Burts Bees and broke out all around her mouth. I felt so bad. And I was totally surprised because its a natural product, so I didnt know what in the gloss wouldve caused it.
