While enjoying some well-made Martinis, it occurred to foodie-turned-alchemist Kristin Donnelly that mixing cocktails is a lot like blending ingredients to create lip balm. After a year of tinkering, she developed these all-natural, cocktail-themed balms made with organic essential oils, luxurious butters, and golden beeswax. In a market flooded with bubblegummy scents, Kristin wanted something for grown-up tastes, and this trio of Old Fashioned, Tiki, and Negroni lip balms offers a sophisticated alternative. Presented in a tube styled after fine whiskey packaging, the set makes an indulgent treat for yourself or a nifty gift for a cocktail-loving friend. Handmade in Iowa.
Ingredients: Beeswax, jojoba, safflower oil, shea butter, castor oil, gentian root, essential oils of sweet orange, bitter orange, juniper, clove and peru balsam.
