Dry, cracked lips and cold sores are often a part of living in cold climates. Whether from viral illness, like Herpes Simplex Virus, or from exposure, the sensitive skin of the lips can crack and become inflamed.
The HSV+ balm in the Lip Service line is especially formulated to soothe lips affected by cold sores and other blisters around the mouth. Coconut oil, mango butter and sea buckthorn oil are infused with lemon balm and St. John's wort. Honey is added for the soothing and anti-microbial properties, along with local beeswax, both from Gingrich Apiaries in Dover, PA. Lastly, a few drops of culinary peppermint extract to add cooling and a bit of flavor.
This lip balm can be used as a daily wear preventative, as well as during flares of active blistering.
Ingredients: Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Mango Butter, Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil (Hippophae rhamnoides), Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis), St. John's Wort (Hypericum perforatum), Organic Vegetable Glycerin, Beeswax, Raw Wildflower Honey, Peppermint Extract.
