Most chap sticks are made with a petroleum base, which is not natural and if you wouldn't eat it why would you put it on your lips? Our lip balms are made with the highest quality oils & butters. The base oils of organic Hemp Seed & Coconut infused with many skin healing herbs from our gardens. We use only Essential Oil in our lip balm and never use synthetic flavors or fragrances. After just a few uses I bet you will notice the difference in using our lip balms compare to the less-natural brands! Don’t worry this lip balm goes on clear and is only green from the essential oil blend. This blend is also what we use in our “Special” Green Salve which includes blue tansy essential oil!
