My daughter, and lovely assistant, Gabrielle and I made a new summer Lip Balm! Our Lip Balm is made with Coconut oil, Local Bees wax and Raw honey, blended with pucker-up lime (not photo-sensitive) and a hint of mint to protect those lips of yours this summer!
As you can see, making lip balm is not too difficult at all and is a fun summer activity! But if you would like to save yourself all the expense, we would love for you to try ours…we think you will love it!!
Here is an all-natural alternative to chemical, cover-up-the-smell candles that we discussed yesterday! Made from mountainroseherbs.com
“Enjoy this classic beeswax pillar candle made with 100% pure Oregon Beeswax and lacking all the harmful impurities typically found in commercial paraffin based candles. Short and stout, these are the longest burning beeswax candles we offer. They are heavy, well balanced and they emit a magnificently rich beeswax fragrance into the air as they heat up during prolonged burning. Measures 3″ high and 3 1/2″ wide and has a 60 hour burn time.”
Now aside from beeswax candles, I have to admit I have not ventured farther! But I am excited to explore this new territory and share it with you as I do!! I have had the beeswax tapers and besides the warm-honey fragrance, which is amazing; I just love the look of the all natural candle!!
So hope this sets you looking for more natural, less toxic varieties of candles to fill your home with. They are more expensive, but if they are adding to your health, not hindering it, you will save money and migraines in the process!!

Don’t forget that we’ll be at the Oil City Farmer’s Market from 9am-4pm today!
Today we want to feature an oil that’s unique, sweet and surprisingly helpful: lime (Citrus aurantifolia)!
According to Pompeii Organics—our favorite essential oil company–Lime is excellent for the skin because it’s a natural astringent. It helps balance oily skin without being as harsh as some of its other citrus cousins like lemon and orange. Unlike other citrus oils, lime is not phototoxic, which means it won’t irritate skin when exposed to sunlight.
Besides the skin benefits, lime is also a great anti-depressant, a hallmark of the citrus family. It lifts the mood and deodorizes the air, and some sources have found that lime helps fight infections and viruses.
Lime has a more delicate, sweet aroma compared to that of the other citrus oils. It’s light and summery, perfect for your warm-weather oil blends. Because it’s on the gentler side, it’s more versatile than other citruses. We’ve mixed it into epsom salts for a nice bath and put some in a diffuser to freshen up a room. The possibilities are endless.
Are you interested in using lime? Send us an email or give us a call! We carry a select amount of Pompeii’s lime oil for our customers, and we’d love to share this wonderful oil with you! Be sure to visit us at the Farmer’s Market from 9-4 to get it today!
