Have your tried our amazing lip balms?

What makes a good lip balm?  In my opinion, I prefer plant based, so our lip balms are all essential oil based - we often get asked for various flavours that don't exist in natural form, .All of our lip balms use pure essential oils ( that we source ourselves to make sure they are the highest quality we can find) and are 100% plant-based.

There are few things that really irritate me.  Buying a lip balm and smoothing it on your lips only to feel grittiness - do you know what I mean?  There is no reason for that silliness (unless of course you are wanting an exfoliating lip massage.)  Off topic here but I am amazed at the people who want to buy a salt scrub for their face?  No, they don't want the gentle sugar scrub we make and sell, they want the hard grittiness.  But I digress.

So my research has taken me to the study of bathing through the ages.  The Romans were known to have 3,000 people bathing simultaneously including huge food feasts, theatre and a little massage thrown in for good measure.  The feasts, theatre and massage sound good to me, until I think about the 2,999 other people in the tub with me. In the words of Jimmy Fallon, ‘ewwwww’.
