Care for Chapped Lips

In our house, winter time means more time to do simple things. We love to spend part of our days reading.

Recently we started to receive Prevention magazine. I was pleasantly surprised to read an article on lip balms for chapped lips.

Dry, chapped lips are certainly one of the more annoying aspects of winter here in Wisconsin. Our houses are dry and the weather can be harsh.

The article went on to mention staying away from lip balms that contain petroleum as this ingredient can trigger allergies. It also states that it is a non-renewable resource.

The promoted lip balm is one which contains moisturizing oils such as beeswax, sunflower and almond oil. No particular brand was mentioned.

Here at Patti’s Potions you can find lovely, environmentally friendly lip balm products.
Our lip balms contain locally harvested beeswax and moisturizing oils, which may include: olive oil (often infused with herbs), shea butter, sweet almond oil, coconut oil, hemp oil, emu oil, castor oil, jojoba, vitamin E.
