I came up with this idea after spending 4 days in hospital with my daughter Bella in 2017. She broke her foot and a few places and needed surgery. I stayed by her side the whole time. Unfortunately I caught a cold. My nose was raw from using tissues. I only had a limited number of oils, and mentally wasn’t in the right headspace to ask someone to bring in my oils. I never left the hospital from the moment the ambulance took us there. But, I did have a plain dōTERRA lip balm, so I applied some to my nose to act as a barrier against the tissues, and I loved it.
Once we got settled back home, I thought I would test out whether the dōTERRA lip balm worked on my skin as a protector/barrier for when have my hair coloured. And, it works! I find the colour doesn’t penetrate as much into the skin on my forehead and ears. I use it every time I go to the hairdressers now. It’s an awesome hack if I must say so myself.
As an alternative, it also works with the correct-x ointment. But, my favourite is the herbal lip balm. Simply because I usually have this, as it’s my favourite lip balm.
