razil and I made the most luscious lip balm today! I'm wearing it right now and my lips are happy. Mmm. I'm sure it doesn't have anything to do with the steamers I just ate, or the lobster I'm anticipating. Nope. (Why don't I live in Maine?)

We (or, rather, she, since I have several conflicting plans) will be selling our soaps and lip balms at an arts & crafts fair here in Portland next weekend. For any Bostonians who want a bar of soap ($4/bar or 3 for $10 for plain ones, $5/bar for nice molds) or a tube of lip balm ($3 each or 2 for $5), I can bring some back with me and find a way to get them to you, but you should tell me by noon Sunday, or you'll have to wait 'til after the next time I come up here. In theory, we could ship things, but, hey, I know us, and don't count on it.

For my own reference,

Lip Balm! (approximate ratios in parens)
4 3/4 oz apricot kernel oil (40%)
3 oz coconut oil (25%)
2 3/8 oz beeswax (20%)
1 3/4 oz cocoa butter (15%)
