Winter Blend Lip Balm

As the winter months come to a close, we are left with several of our Winter Blend lip balms in the shop. With the busy nature of the season, we never got around to explaining what is so magical about this balm!

Although we associate Rosemary and Thyme together for a comforting winter blend, the truth is that these oils are amazing for your skin all year round. (Perhaps we will include them into a summer blend as well!) Rosemary essential oil has antimicrobial as well as antiseptic qualities. It can help with dermatitis as well as balance oily skin. But in our balms specifically, we use it because studies have shown a major improvement in skin elasticity and overall hydration. This helps to keep those wicked lip wrinkles away! It is also an astringent, and reduces any sort of marks or scars that are already present. It protects the skin from free radicals with its strong antioxidant capacity.

And there you have it! Just a couple reasons why this oil is so stellar. On top of its amazing uses for skin quality, Rosemary has other benefits which you may find astounding. We suggest giving the link attached a read to see what this super plant is really capable of!
