It all started very innocently. I’ve been a lip balm addict for as long as I can remember, but at some point along the way I questioned the wisdom of slathering my lips with the cheap petroleum-based ingredients found in most commercial brands.
So when I saw that my community ed program offered a lip balm making class, I signed-up for it. Like any good hobbyist, I ordered some supplies online and started experimenting. Since there is no practical way of making just one tube of lip balm at a time, I had more than I could use by myself. I gave the extras away to friends and family, with taped-on black & white labels. Soon I was getting requests for more and people starting saying I should sell it. Hmmmm......the seed was planted.
That was 2007….and it grew from there.
