Between bike commutes to work, tending the Winter garden, and caring for our urban farm critters, we are embarking on the season when lip balm is an absolute necessity. When we learned that many of the popular “store bought” brands have synthetic chemicals or ingredients that aren’t as nourishing as we wanted, we decided to create our own and we are excited to share it with you, too!
Here’s what goes into our lip balm: certified organic virgin coconut oil, cocoa butter, and sweet almond oil for starters; we add honey from our own hives, as well as beeswax; some healing Vitamin E oil; and both spearmint and peppermint organic essential oils for their therapeutic properties. That’s it! No extra fragrances, colors or synthetic ingredients. You can find our Honey, Mint & Cocoa lip balm in the Raggedy Hen Farm store.
