I have a bit of a thing for lip balm! It doesn’t matter what time of year it is I always need to use it.
Calendula and Orange Lip Balm is fantastically moisturising and nurturing for your lips. Made from gorgeous organic butters and oils it also contains orange wax which is a deeply concentrated wax made from orange peel so it’s food safe and smells just incredible! It’s what gives the lip balm it’s gorgeous naturally orange colour.
Apply whenever needed. A little goes a very long way. In winter you may need to dig a little out with your thumb nail and apply it that way but it’s fine in summer!
What’s in Calendula and Orange Lip Balm?
Calendula petals infused in sunflower oil: These calendula petals are from my garden and they have been infusing in sunflower oil for about two weeks so all the calendula-ry goodness has come out of them and gone into the oil. Sunflower oil is lovely and slippery and helps the lip balm slide on.
Carnauba wax: A vegan wax which works in a similar way to beeswax, it conditions and thickens the balm and makes it, well, a balm.
Organic cocoa butter: Gorgeously moisturising and great for softening skin.
Organic shea butter: Again, a great moisturiser and helps to fade scarring.
Coconut oil: Wonder product that’s good for everything so a great addition to any beauty product.
Olive oil: Gives the lips a bit of a sheen when the balm is applied.
Jojoba oil: An incredible waxy oil which mimics the minerals in skins sebum so it’s like putting your own moisture back on your skin.
Orange wax: A semi-solid wax which comes from orange peel. The wax in the peel protects the fruit against the environment and allows it to breathe and keep it’s water balance. Orange wax offers the same protection to your skin.
