YES. I'm going to get some bulk dried herbs soon, I'd love to try it with chamomile. Any suggestions for doing that?

I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions, herbal or otherwise. Including particular chapstick brands... I have tried many such as ChapStick, ChapAid or something, and many others. (basically whatever is cheapest at the moment, or what i can find...)

Young Living makes a wonderful all-natural lip balm (Cinnamint, I think it's called). It's got a bunch of essential oils and other yummy stuff in it. Cheesy I really like it because it has a more oily than waxy texture, so it really sinks into your lips. Of course, the downside then is that you have to reapply it every once in awhile. That and I have really oily skin, so if it smears off my lips my face starts feeling gross. I'm always wiping around the edges of my mouth when I wear it. Tongue But it works so well that I normally only wear it at night; I only use it during the day when it's really cold and dry out.

Another company (Arbonne, maybe?) makes an herbal supplement that's supposed to help keep your lips healthy. My mom swears by it; she says if her lips are cracked, she takes one a day and after two or three days they're all better. I can't vouch for it like I can for the lip balm, though.

Thank you for that. I am using carmex, and although it was working while I was using it, I havent been able to find it for two days and my lips are all cracked again. So i don't know if maybe that is because I am too dehydrated (i know I am... but I don't know if that is why they are bad again or what...) or if maybe they only are not cracked when I have the carmex and get cracked again after stopping use of it........ Oh well.

I tend to use fresh herbs when I make balms and salves (greater potency), but the nice thing about dry herbs is that you don't have to worry about them going rancid as readily.  Just add the dry herbs to a sealable jar, cover with the oil of your choice (assuming you're using a liquid oil and not a semi-solid like coconut), seal and let it sit for a week or two.  Then you can strain and either use or add more herbs and repeat the infusing for a stronger blend.

Ah, OK. That's how I would have done it but I wasn't sure.

I get a little bit of lip chapping in winter and I've never found Chapstick or similar brands very good.  The best thing I've tried was Lush's Lip Service lip balm - it's very solid so you need to rub your finger over it to warm it up before applying, but it was effective.  I also tried a couple of their other balms but Lip Service was better.
