Lip Salve

Soothe chapped lips with Dr. Thrall's Lip Salve

Exculsively made at The Farmers' Museum, the salve contains olive oil, beeswax, sugar and rose oil.

Packaged in a reusable tin with a handprinted label. 

1/4 oz.


This lip salve is prepared from a recipe dating back to 1820's England.   The base for the salve was used as a simple dressing for burns.  The salve, which is slightly sweetened, is available in either lavender or rose scent.

The Celtic knot label was recreated from a design found in the cargo of a ship that sunk in the 1850’s.  The labels are individually block printed in the museum’s printing office on an 1860’s treadle press.
