Aloe and Lime Zero Waste Lip Balm
Aloe Vera is one of the most amazing plants in the world, and is an essential part of your healthy skin care routine!
The Ancient Egyptians valued the Aloe Vera plant as a treatment for infections, rashes, and burns, and referred to it as the "plant of immortality."
Aloe Vera has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, antioxidant, and astringent properties.
There are 20 amino acids in aloe oil, as well as 7 out of 8 essential amino acids.
Aloe helps the skin (and lips!) heal from sunburn quickly due to its antioxidant properties. It also helps with healing from minor cuts and skin abrasions.
Lime essential oil is an astringent, antiviral, antiseptic, antibacterial and a disinfectant.
Due to its antibacterial properties, lime essential oil can be applied to minor bites, scrapes, burns, and cuts to help speed up healing time and prevent bacterial infections. (The lime oil in this balm was steam distilled, which eliminates phototoxicity).
The uplifting scent of lime essential oil makes it ideal for reducing stress, anxiety, and indecision. It helps to promote mental clarity and increase energy and focus.
Aloe and Lime Zero Waste Lip Balm can be used for so much more than just a lip balm!
