Hemp Lip Balm
If you’re like a lot of people, you may suffer from severely chapped or dry lips. Often this affliction gets much worse in the dry winter months and can actually be painful at times. There are several different lip balms available on the market today, but most only temporarily cover up the problem, they do not prevent it from happening again or heal the lips. However, hemp seed oil used in lip balm has been shown to not only soothe dry chapped lips, it has also been shown to prevent the problem from reoccurring. Hemp oil is very rich in omega fatty acids, which are essential to the human body. When concentrated in lip balm form, it goes straight into the skin of the lips and is absorbed very easily. This offers immediate relief from dry and flaky lips, and also gives the lips a nice shine. If you find a hemp lip balm with added sunscreen, you will get even more protection.
Hemp lip balm comes in various flavors and colors as well as the plain traditional kind. Anything from kiwi, strawberries and cream to peppermint and much more is available. The lip balm is made from cold pressed hemp seed oil and then combined with different ingredients such as beeswax and calendula. The lip balm is not too oily or greasy feeling and glides on smoothly to coat and soothe chapped lips. It also helps with peeling. Added ingredients like tea tree oil and lemongrass give it a nice, uplifting tingle and can also help to heal cold sores much faster than other treatments. Most hemp lip balms cost about the same as ordinary Chap Stick or other lip balms that can be purchased at the drug store, but those made of hemp are longer lasting and work much better. If you suffer from dry lips, look into getting a tube or two of hemp lip balm and you’ll be on your way to much smoother, healthier lips!
