Valentine's Day is on the horizon, and you might be trying to come up with something cute and giftable that’s also affordable enough to give to your whole crew. This easy-to-make lip balm will only take five minutes to whip up and comes with a benefit most sweet Valentine’s Day treats don’t—it’s calorie free.
