Double Duty Balm

Ah, I’ve finally perfected a balm that works wonderfully on both your lips and your skin–hence the name, “Double Duty Balm”.

My family is prone to getting dry lips, even my children. I think it’s a combination of living in an apartment where it’s very breezy most of the time, and me prompting the kids to always drink loads of water, very often (it keeps them well hydrated on the inside, but it does wash away the precious little oil that protects their lips).

(Note: I’ve recently tweaked the formulation and packaging for the balm, so it doesn’t look like this photo anymore. It’s in a fat roll-up tube which  allows you to apply the balm directly on your skin.)

Suggested uses

  • to protect and moisturize your lips
  • to smooth over patches of dry skin for instant relief from dryness
  • as a balm for diaper rash
  • to administer on minor cuts and grazes, especially for kids (since most of the time all they really need is a distraction to feel better, and I can’t think of a happier one than the scent of melting chocolate being gently rubbed into their wounds!)

I’m not quite sure if it’ll work on soothing eczema or getting rid of the irritation and itchiness stemming from insect bites, but if you do try it out and have favourable results, you MUST let me know! 🙂

How to use:

Uncap the tube and smooth the balm onto your lips, or wherever it is on your body that needs some moisture or care. You can also scrape some using a clean spoon if you like, particularly if you’re using it to treat your baby’s diaper rash. I’ve tossed this balm into my all-day handbag and it hasn’t melted on me yet. :p
