Scent Note:

Some people do not care for the scent of tallow. If you do not like the scent of the suet used for birdseed treats you may not care for the scent of tallow.

Clothing Note:

Tallow, as with all oils, can get into clothing. Allow to absorb into skin before touching your clothing. If it gets into your clothes check out this useful all-natural stain treatment blog post by Katie of Wellness Mama:

Handcrafter’s Note:

Since this is a handcrafted product made in small batches variances in color and scent concentration may occur.

How to Use:

By nature tallow is as hard as wax at room temperature so we recommend using the back of your thumbnail to scrape a small amount of Tallowed Touch out of the jar with the back of your clean thumb, rub between your palms to warm and then work into your skin.

How Our Products are Made

Locally sourced 100% grass-fed beef tallow from Hickory Nut Gap Farm® is first rendered and then organic extra virgin olive oil is added for spreadability. Finally high quality certified organic essential oils are used to add scent and beneficial properties to the Tallow Balm.

Enjoy a soothing Tallow Balm that you can put all over your body!

Infused Tallowed Touch is a special tallow balm that has fragrant organic plant matter like vanilla beans or rose petals infused directly into locally sourced 100% grass-fed beef tallow. This achieves a deeper complexity of scent than with essential oils alone.

Enjoy a truly unique tallow balm with Infused Tallowed Touch!

Tallowed Kiss Tallow Lip Balms (once named Tallowed Touch Tallow Lip Balms) are also made with 100% grass-fed beef tallow from Hickory Nut Gap Farm®, but instead of using olive oil I use organic castor oil and beeswax to give the lip balms a lip-hugging, long-lasting feel. As with my tallow balms I use high quality, certified organic essential oils to add scent and beneficial properties to my tallow lip balms. Infused Tallowed Kiss Tallow Lip Balms have organic vanilla beans, rose petals or cinnamon infused directly into the tallow for a richer, more intoxicating flavor.

Enjoy our long-lasting, lip-hugging Tallowed Kiss Tallow Lip Balms!

Tallow Lip Balm Tips + Extra Info

For Cold Weather:

If the weather outside is cold then warm your tallow lip balm between your palms before attempting to put in one your lips in order to help soften your lip-hugging product! You can also hold the balm to your lips a moment to make it easier to spread.

If you do neither of these things you may find that your lip balm crumbles. If that happens just return the clean pieces to the tube and use a bit to melt on your lips. No problem!

For Warm/Hot Weather:

If the weather is hot do not leave me in your car or pocket!

Though I am not likely to completely liquefy what parts of me do soften will hasten the demise of my lovely biodegradable tube - for that reason keeping me in a small reused baggie or the cellophane wrapper that I came in came in while i am in your pocket or purse will be sure that I do not stain anything with y moisturizing fats.

Size & Longevity

Our 6ml tubes contain approximately 5% more lip balm than regular plastic tubes and our amazing tallow balm lasts far longer because you do not need to use as much.

Feel even better about purchasing our Tallowed Touch Tallow Lip Balms because they are carefully packaged in biodegradable and compostable paper tubes so that you don’t have to feel ANY guilt about buying another plastic lip balm tube that will sit around polluting our Mother Earth for the next 18 generations or more!

This gift set is so cute! I purchased it for my sister after falling in love with Maggie's Tallow balm products. I have to confess that I kept one of the lip balms for myself, and I am BLOWN away at how much I love it. I originally thought 100% Grassfed Beef Tallow might be a little gross in lip balm, but I am so wrong! It feels luxurious and reminds me a bit of Burt's Bees, but is WAY more effective for dry, chapped lips. I highly recommend!! The gift bag is perfect, and Maggie's products are top notch quality. I'm excited to share with my sister. I'm a lifelong customer and so glad to have found Tallow from Maggie @ MotherMakings!

I purchased the Honey Rose Lip Balm, determined to find a natural alternative to the expensive commercial lip balm. Apon arrival the little girl in me was thrilled pink to find my own personal gift, wrapped up like candy! I could have eaten it up but I just put it on my lips instead. The rich rose was perfect with the honey that just hugs my lips. Love it! I'm going to try everything she makes.

Gorgeous smell, great texture! It does take a bit to warm to properly spread, but it works great! Not too heavy, not too light, and actually stays on throughout eating and drinking. Also, I got a lovely note from the seller that was such a nice touch.
