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!!
Happy Fourth of July! Hope you all have a safe and happy holiday.
Last year at this time we featured a remarkable essential oil: Helichrysum (Helichrysum italicum). I got a bad burn over the Independence Day holiday, and I used helichrysum hydrosol with amazing results!
Visit Pompeii Organics for information on helichrysum essential oil and hydrosol.

Just a little edgy humor 🙂 In all honesty, helichrysum (Helichrysum italicum) is an amazing oil for all kinds of issues! (Our information today comes from the Aromatic Wisdom Institute’s information on helichrysum.)
The herb is analgesic, which means it helps relieve pain; it regenerates the cells; and it heals the skin, making it wonderful for any kind of wound. This past weekend, I got a bad burn on my ankle. The skin blistered up and it was awful! Right away I sprayed on some helichrysum hydrosol, as I’ve done every day since then. The burn has gotten dramatically better every day!
Helichrysum is also anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic, and anti-allergenic. It is an effective anti-depressant, being emotionally balancing and very helpful to heal deep emotional trauma.
One of the best things about helichrysum is that it is non-toxic and non-irritating, making it very versatile. It is great blended with other oils, especially arnica for pain relieving and bruise healing properties.
Is your interest in helichrysum piqued? We sell the oil itself and we feature it in blends like our joint and muscle lotion! We love using this amazing plant and we hope you learn to love it too!
