I’ve been using this since I was a little kid. My mom used to slather it on any skin irritation my brother and I had growing up. Anything from chapped lips in the winter (or in the case of my brother- his entire mouth area would get completely red and dry and gross because he would lick it all day in the dry cold air when he was outside playing... but that's another story), dry feet in the summer from too much time running around with no shoes, or even minor chaffing- bag balm was the answer. Now I keep a small tin in my purse where ever I go, I use it as a lip balm. It keeps my lips oh-so-soft. And maybe it’s just because I’ve been using my whole life, but I love the old school scent. It also still works unbelievably well to combat dry feet.
