    Evan’s DIY Face and Body Balms

     

    The two recipes that follow are as brilliant in their simplicity as they are in their efficacy. Both recipes are appropriate for use all over skin.

    While they both melt beautifully into the skin, the first recipe is creamy and smooth, while the second is firmer and great for lips or around the eyes.

     

    Enjoy!

     XO, Evan
