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.
Since ditching the plastic tubes and now ditching the plastic pots as well I couldn’t really put the lip balm in a glass pot because a) it’s not practical and b) the smallest glass jars I can get are 15ml which is massive for a lip balm so I’ve sourced some cutesy little aluminium screw top pots which hold 10g of lip balm which will last for absolutely yonks!
Calendula and Orange Lip Balm is fantastically moisturising and nurturing for your lips. Made from gorgeous organic butters and oils it is fragranced with sweet orange essential oil which gives it its delicate orangey colour.
Apply whenever needed. A little goes a very long way.
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.
Jojoba wax: A vegan wax which works in a similar way to beeswax. Jojoba minics skins sebum, so it’s like putting your own moisture back on your skin. Thickens the product and turns it into 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, in the same way as the wax, mimics the minerals in skins sebum so it’s like putting your own moisture back on your skin.
