Before I pour my mint balm into tubes, it looks like the photo above. It gets its lovely green hue from hemp seed oil, which is somewhat of a miracle substance. In fact, reading the description of the oil's health benefits makes me want to bathe in it. And drizzle it on my morning cereal.
I like hemp oil's non-greasy feeling in lip balms, plus its color matches the minty scent nicely, don't you think? -Claire
P.S. Mint played a big role in my lunch today Tanoreen, a fab and famous Middle Eastern restaurant in the Bay Ridge part of Brooklyn. Just thought I'd share.
