These lip balms hold Whidbey-grown garden calendula and chamomile flowers, comfrey leaves and flowers, and spearmint. All grown in our garden here at Ritual Mischief, except for the comfrey, which is from our neighbor Randall’s garden. This lip softening and moisturizing balm is a celebration of local gardens and gardeners, people who like to kiss in the garden, and people who like to be kissed by the garden. Local beeswax too, from either Hive Harvest on the peninsula or Maya Farm on Whidbey. No essential oils--just the natural scent of the plants infused into organic olive oil, so the balm is gentle, moisturizing, comforting, and a bit nourishing. And nothing else.
As with all new products, you should still start slowly and make sure you/your family’s bodies like the plants in this balm. Discontinue use if your body isn’t happy. If you’re allergic to ragweed, you could be allergic to the chamomile in this balm, so proceed with caution. There is half a drop of castor oil per tin of lip balm to make it silky smooth and even more softening. In very high doses, castor oil can be used a laxative, so please don’t sit down and eat dozens of tins of lip balm. Come to think of it, don’t eat even one tin of lip balm. The balm is for your lips not your belly. Please share this tip with children if you share the lip balm with them.
Ingredients: Whidbey-grown calendula and chamomile flowers, comfrey leaves and flowers, and spearmint leaves and soft upper stems infused into organic extra virgin olive oil, plus local beeswax, Shea butter, a half drop of organic castor oil per tin, and a touch of organic beetroot powder to give the balm a bit of color in the tin (not enough to tint your lips).
Size and packaging: Lip balm is in a one-ounce reusable, food grade, round gold metal tin with a twist-off top. See our Packaging page for more details. The twist-off tops were chosen (instead of pull-straight-off tops) because if you accidentally forget them in your purse in a hot car, and the balm melts, the twist off tops help keep the balm in the container better.
