As the weather gets warmer, it becomes increasingly important to be mindful of what goes on your skin. We all know that sunscreen is crucial for protecting against the destructive effects of ultraviolet light. So put on some SPF and you’re set, right?

If you like the smell and flavour of cola without the extra calories (or sugar), our DIY cola lip balm is for you! Even if you’re a fist time beauty-DIYer, this recipe is very simple to make. As an added bonus, it doesn’t contain the synthetic fragrances, polyunsaturated oils, or petroleum byproducts found in many store bought lip balms.
You might be asking — how do you make a cola-scented lip balm without the use of artificial fragrances? Well, we discovered that a simple blend of two essential oils smells exactly like cola when combined. Yes, only two! You can also try this combination in your diffuser if you want your house to smell delicious! See more about that here.
