Lip balm is applied with ease and the spice is ever so nice! The balms were shipped out promptly and I was able to enjoy in a few days.

Both lip balms are great and love the labels. The lip balms go on slick, give a nice shine and smell so good!

This was all quite random...

I'm an over-educated graphic & web designer who, years ago during grad school, decided to make a fun geeky 'zine with friends. Somehow the idea came up of making party favors to sell to raise money, and I decided to make some lip balms. They were yummy enough that I wanted to make more, and I decided hey, I should try to sell these, since I've got way more supplies than I, or my friends, can use up. And my first Etsy shop, Geek Bliss, was born.

Well, the zine didn’t pan out, but I loved making the balms so much—er, I loved designing the labels so much—that I kept the shop going. As someone who loves scifi movies & shows it was great fun to think up new balm ideas (examples: "I Kissed a Cullen," "Acid Burn" (from the movie _Hackers_), "Red Pill" (from _The Matrix_)).

But although I'm a scifi geek, I’m even more of a costume drama geek, and I was quickly inspired to design vintage-y labels. I started brainstorming name ideas, and up popped the idea for Moonsteam Alchemy.

Moonsteam Alchemy was first created in 2010, and by 2012 I was busy enough with my freelance design business that I just didn't have the time for balm-ing, so I let my stock run out. However, I eventually felt nostalgic for my balms & really wanted some for myself & friends for the holidays. So I decided to restock some supplies in 2016...and reopen the shop to sell balms again until the supplies run out. :)

I hope you enjoy the balms as much as I enjoy making them! :)

I only accept Paypal payments. Paypal is easy, fast, and secure for both you and me.
I ship everything via First Class mail (unless you request otherwise). I've not yet had any problems with melting, even in summer. Also, delivery time is pretty decent with First Class. Unless you need your items SUPER fast, First Class should do the trick with no problems (why pay more if you don't have to?).

If you do need faster shipping, Priority is available for a flat rate of $4.95 (I can fit a lot into those small boxes, lol!). Just convo me if you want this option, and I'll set up a listing for you.
