I've tried several of these lip balms and can say that I've truly enjoyed several of them, however I really love the Merry Hempsters peppermint organic lip
balm
. Their lip balm has a very nice texture and seems to nourish my lips thoroughly.
I love the natural peppermint flavor and its great that they use all USDA
certified organic organic ingredients. Merry Hempsters organic lip
balm feels so much nicer than petroleum based lip balms like Chapstick.

Thanks for this recommendation. Others have told me about Merry Hempsters, and I will check them out, their lip balms do sound great!
