It’s spring, and though there may still be snow on the ground where you live, it’s time to get some seeds started and gardening tasks begun.
The base for this salve may have you going “Huh?” because it’s our Soy Lip Solutions! This blend of Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Castor Oil, Beeswax, Shea Butter, and Cocoa Butter makes a perfect base to pamper your hands and cuticles.
We could leave it at that, but we won’t, because there are so many wonderful things we can add to boost the efficacy. This time around, our focus will be on extracts: Matcha Green Tea, Dandelion Flower, Calendula, and Marshmallow Root. We’ll also add some Helichrysum Essential Oil for its skin loving properties.
Because we’re using the Soy Lip Solutions base, this will go really fast. Let’s get busy!
