Back at the beginning of December we received an e-mail from Crystal. It was such a great thing to read that I just had to share it with you!
First, I’d like to say I have never been disappointed with any of your products or service. Due to a complicated pregnancy I’ve been out of the soap making loop for a few months but as soon as I start again I’ll definitely be back to ordering the bulk of my supplies from The Sage.
What I really wanted to tell you about was your miracle orange butter lip balm. I received a tube as a sample with an order I placed some time ago. To be honest I’m a lip balm junkie and have an obscene collection of them, so it wound up just getting tossed in my purse with the dozen or so others I always carry with me.
My daughter is four years old. From the time she was a baby she has had a problem with dry chapped lips in the winter. The last two years have been the worst. Her poor little lips stay cracked and bleed on a daily basis from October to March. I have had her try so many balms and butters and none of them have ever made any difference. Then last week she was digging through my purse and happened to pull out your orange lip butter! For some reason she decided she wanted to use your balm and (I swear on this) after just one day of use, applying it only twice, her lips are baby soft. It’s like she never had problems at all. Amazing. So thank you very much for the sample! I can’t wait to order some orange butter and play around with it in other products!
Thank you for the review Crystal! I hope your little one has been able to keep those soft lips!
I’ve included the text and photos from the original post for you to play with this recipe. It is one of our favorites and a great reminder to keep those lip moisturized during the winter months!
I’ll have some of these lip balms made again as samples for the shipping in the new year. If you would like to try this lip balm, I hope that anyone wanting a sample lip balm will request one with their order and if we have any samples we will send them to you.
|This lip balm is fantastic year round. It has a smooth glide and a long lasting moisturizing capability that allows anyone to have soft lips! Enjoy!
Collect needed items:
Weigh all ingredients except the Sugar Kisses Flavor Oil into your microwave safe container. Microwave in short bursts until all ingredients are melted. The beeswax will take the most time to melt, but if you stir the lip balm after the other oils have been heated, it will melt quickly. Once the mixture is melted, add the Sugar Kisses Flavor Oil . Stir until all of the flavor has been incorporated. Fill tubes or jars. Cool. Label.
Notes: You can add different flavors to this lip balm to complement the Orange Butter. Try Chocolate Cream for chocolate covered oranges, Mango Mango for Island Smoothie, Peach for Fuzzy Navel, or Vanilla Banilla for an orange creamsicle.
