We took a challenge: to create balms based on basic Ayurvedic Dosha principles*
We infuse 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.
Hurraw lip balm is a must for your handbag to keep your lips feeling moist all day.
An herbal infusion of ashwangandha. Grounding.
The soothing almond scent is complimented with notes of spicy Guatemalan cardamom and finished off with a lovely lingering of Turkish rose.

It is advised to avoid eucalyptus oil when pregnant. We use a folded grapefruit oil in this balm. Using distilled/folded grapefruit oil lowers the terpene concentration and thus the phototoxicity. We follow the IFRA safety guidelines and use all essential oils at safe levels for 'leave-on' skin preparations.
