Treatment of Chapped Lips with Essential Oils

Chapped Lips:

Chapped lips often follow exposure to sun, wind, or salt water. Because lips don’t have oil glands, it is important to treat chapping right away to prevent it from becoming worse. Treat yourself to frequent lip-moisturizing treatments to keep chapping at bay.
