Features and Benefits
We took a challenge: to create balms based on basic Ayurvedic Dosha principles*
We infuse rich, cold pressed organic sesame seed oil with plants, fruits and roots known to compliment each Dosha. We melt in our creamy raw organic coconut oil, rich raw organic cacao butter and emollient cold pressed organic castor oil. We mingle in a trio of flavors from pure essential oils and all natural flavor extracts to create a unique, long lasting, very nourishing lip balm.
An herbal infusion of tulsi. Invigorating and zesty grapefruit subtly melds with stimulating eucalyptus; fresh Malagasy ginger gives warmth. Energizing.
