Summertime Lip Balms

If you are like me, and you are hopelessly addicted to lip balm, then this PSA is for you!

Lip balms are wonderful! They help to soothe capped or sore lips, and they keep our lips soft and supple! Lip balms can come in a variety of fragrances and with different ingredients, but handmade lip balms are quite different from the store bought brand. My lip balms are made with a combination of beeswax, coconut oil, sweet almond oil, or cocoa butter to create wonderful, natural balms. The addition of edible fragrance oils or edible essential oils gives a little flavor to the balm.

My lip balms are pretty solid in their tubes or jars... However, in the heat of the summer, the balms can sometimes become mushy... And no one likes a mushy lip balm!

So, when you order lip balms from me during the hot summer months, before you open the seal on the tubes or tins, just pop your lip balm in the fridge for about an hour, and the balm will harden right back up! You can do the same thing for your store bought lip balms when they get left in hot cars... we've all been there!

Happy summer, everyone! Keep those lips moist!
