I love energizing natural lip balms, but sometimes it's difficult to find a blend that isn't irritating to sensitive lips. When your lips are cracked and dry, it's counterintuitive to slather on invigorating natural lip balm that could end up stinging your kisser!

Refreshing yet understated, Prairie Essence Herbal Garden Lip Balm is the perfect blend of rosemary, shea butter, sweet almond oil and cocoa seed butter; the moisturizing oils and butter balance the woody, fragrant, stimulating rosemary while still allowing it to tingle your lips for a quick pick-me-up. Rosemary, which is part of the mint family, is an easy choice for natural lip balms; rosemary is a natural disinfectant and helps clear bad breath. This doesn't give you free reign to lick your lips all day (tempting!), but the slight scent of rosemary lips complements fresh breath.

Prairie Essence Herbal Garden Lip Balm's main moisturizing ingredient is beeswax. Beeswax is a natural moisturizer that adds body and thickness to lip balms without being overly oily or slick. In addition to beeswax, Prairie Essence Herbal Garden Lip Balm combines shea butter for extra skin-penetrating moisture; sweet almond oil for added vitamins A, B1, B2 and E; and cocoa seed butter for free radical-fighting antioxidants.

Prairie Essence Herbal Garden Lip Balm is smooth and uber-moisturizing, but has a thicker consistency, similar to a salve, that feels good on super-chapped lips. Compared to most natural lip balms, Prairie Essence Herbal Garden Lip Balm has a less sticky feel and a longer staying power (even though I still reach for this natural lip balm every hour—I love the feel of this one!).

Prairie Essence has a firm commitment to sourcing only the best eco-friendly ingredients. Prairie Essence Herbal Garden Lip Balm (as well as other Prairie Essence natural beauty products) contains no petroleum, artificial dyes or colors, parabens, formaldehyde donors or urea-based preservatives. For a natural lip balm, Prairie Essence Herbal Garden Lip Balm has a reasonable price point—$3 for a 0.15-ounce tube—and is available online and in small retailers in Minnesota.
