If you’ve ever been to janegee you know that the shelves are filled with all sorts of products. But have you ever wondered what product started it all?
A regular customer and loyal friend named Jean, asked me to make her a balm for her ever-blistering lips. So, I did just that. The Sweet Stick successfully healed her skin so well that we decided to make it into a product that other people could enjoy. Jean is a very sweet person, hence the name: Sweet Stick.
I loved every minute of the research process. I worked to find the best raw materials to use, and learned how indigenous peoples used the materials in their everyday lives. Like all of our products, the Sweet Stick contains organic botanical oils and other healing ingredients to naturally protect and take care of your skin.
Once I had my list of ingredients, I began to narrow it down to find the best combination. After a little trial and error, the Sweet Stick was born. And we are glad it was! Not only did this small product heal Jean’s blistered lips, but we found that it is more of a multipurpose balm.
(We literally use it for everything!)
All of the active ingredients are known to soothe, calm, moisturize, and hydrate. They are antiviral, antiseptic, and antibacterial.
When it comes to dry lips, Sweet Stick is the best. Did you know that your lip balm could be making your lips dryer?
Many commercial lip balms are made with petroleum by-products and chemicals which are humectant in nature. Which means they draw out the moisture, they actually attract water, pulling it up from deep within the skin. At first they feel silky and smooth but before long you are having to reapply your balm. Over a period of a day or two you will notice that your lips are becoming more and more dry and in need of relief. Your lips never ever feel fully hydrated and healthy.
The great thing about Sweet Stick is that the synergistic blend of oils and butters will hydrate, soothe, and regenerate tissue leaving your lips, soft and silky smooth. It has been ten years since the first sweet stick was sold and it still remains our most popular product. We have learned that it truly is a multi purpose balm.
Due to the healing nature of the individual ingredients we have found it to be great for the following:
Stops the itch, soothes a sting, and helps reduce inflammation. Apply as often as you need until the bites are healed!
The antiviral properties of the synergistic blend of essential oils in the Sweet Stick, work to help cold sores from coming up. If you catch that first itch and keep applying, they often don’t appear! Rose geranium & lavender are known for their anti virals action.
Cracked and Bleeding Fingers in Winter
