Giving Essence Lip Balm Giveaway


I'm a lip balm junkie. Okay I've said it out loud. I can't go anywhere without a tin, stick, or tube of lip balm. I have several in the house at all times in every room, in my purse, and in the glove compartment of the car.
I've had my favorites over the years, but now I've been introduced to
The Giving Essence Lip Balm and I'm sold! It's extra creamy without being greasy, and when I put it on at night before I fall asleep, it lasts well into the morning. With this cold winter we're experiencing and with the dry heat from the furnace, my lips are usually in trouble. But not this year -- they've never been happier!

Diane has done a fabulous job with all of her essential oil products. Here's a direct quote from her web site:

Our all-natural lip balms are specially formulated for dry chapped wintertime lips. With the extra penetrating and gentle power of sweet almond oil in every tin, you’ll find our balms bring maximum softness helping those essential oils go right where they’re needed to deliver healthy, smooth lips.

Once again, Diane is offering a free lip balm to you. You can choose one of five flavors in a 1 oz. tin. She offers Lavender Mint, Lemongrass, Spearmint, Rose Geranium, and Chocolate Mint.

1. Just visit The Giving Essence and come back here to leave a comment about anything on her site.
2. For a second chance to win, sign up as an e-mail subscriber with Feedburner or become a Google Follower (see sidebar.) Then leave a second comment telling me you have subscribed or are already a subscriber.
3. If you're not a blogger, be sure to leave your contact e-mail address like this to avoid spammers: pianananna@gmail(dot)com. If I can't reach you, your name will be disqualified, and I will draw again.
This contest ends on Friday, Jan. 23rd at noon EST. Good Luck!

Don't forget to visit An Herbal Bedfellow for healthy recipes made with herbs, and also my newest blog:
Happenstance House -- A journal about my Victorian home and all of it's contents.

Hi Jane Marie! Thanks for visiting my blog. It made me so happy :-)
I totally agree about the dry lips in the winter. I use Burt's Bees because I love all the natural ingredients. Almond oil is a great moisturizer.
See you again soon!! xoxo

Home for the Holidays: The Giving Essence’s seasonal best. It features essential oils of Spruce, Sweet Orange, and Vanilla Bean to transport us to Christmases past.
I'd like cedar oil in that too.
