Naturally anti-bacterial and anti-viral, this travel-sized balm is a combination of local animal fats, certified organic oils, herbs, vitamins, and amino acids.**
L-Lysine & Vitamin C
Did you know that your body needs extra amounts of Vitamin C in order to properly absorb and utilize the l-Lysine amino acid? That’s why we added a fat-soluble Vitamin C into our L-Lysine Lip Balm!
L-Lysine is an essential amino acid that must be obtained through the diet or through supplementation.** Lysine is necessary for the production of all proteins in the body, and is required for the maintenance of the structural proteins collagen and elastin, which form all connective tissue such as skin cells.** L-Lysine may help to support a healthy immune system function.**
Each lip balm contains approximately 400 mg of Vitamin C and 250 mg of L-Lysine.
The Vitamin C we use is called Ascorbyl Palmitate, which is a fat-soluble Vitamin C Ester that exerts the antioxidant activity characteristic of vitamin C on lipids throughout the body. In-vitro studies have shown that ascorbyl palmitate may be more effective as an antioxidant in protecting lipids from peroxidation than water-soluble vitamin C.**
LEMON BALM & ECHINACEA
Our Fresh Homegrown Lemon Balm and Certified Organic Echinacea Purpurea powder is deeply infused in our lip balm oils using the traditional herbal infusion method, lending a green tint to the balm.
Our Lip Balm Oil Base:
– Certified Organic Jojoba Oil for skin-softening
– Certified Organic Cold-Pressed Castor Oil for an extra healing boost
– Local Pasture-Raised Lard for Natural Collagen and Vitamin D
– Certified Organic Virgin Unrefined Coconut Oil for more anti-microbial effects
– Vitamin E – natural tocopherols for preservation and skin-softening
Anti-Microbial Essential Oils
This balm contains the 500+ year old famous anti-viral “robber’s” essential oil combination (Organic Mint, Clove, Organic Cinnamon, Lemon, and Organic Rosemary) as well as other highly anti-bacterial essential oils such as Thyme, Organic Tea Tree, and Oregano.**
We use our own filtered beeswax from our 5+ beehives of European Honey Bees. These hives are untreated and produced without any chemicals such as pesticides. We do not use any chemicals when rendering our wax, just heat and fine natural filters. If we run out of honey, we have another local producer that provides us with fresh honey, or we purchase certified organic beeswax from a larger company.
Push up from the bottom to use. Apply directly on your lips, on your skin, on the bottom of your feet (for quicker bloodstream absorption, as your feet have the biggest pores), or under your nose (to inhale into the bloodstream). For external use only. If you are planning to use on your face and feet, we recommend purchasing two (one with label, one without label) to use separately.
