More About Lemon Mint Cheeky Jo-jo's Noes to Toes
Cheeky Jo-jo's is a solid and effective combination of infused oils and local beeswax that has shown to aid many skin irritations. So why change the formula? It already makes a great chapstick, but now has a flavor!
Lemon Mint Cheeky Jo-jo's is a delightfully fresh chapstick that actually relieves chapped lips. No dyes, no artifical flavoring, only the highest quality of oils, beeswax, plants, and essential oils to rub onto your lips.
I wanted a chapstick that made your lips tingle a little but not to much. Then I wanted to partner the peppermint with another flavor. I chose lemon because of the mild flavor but also for it's healing properties. While lemon is calming it is also stimulating and has anti-infection, astringent, antiseptic, detoxifying, disinfectant, and anti-fungal properites. It seemed like the perfect choice to marry together.
How this healing salve is made:
Cheeky Jo-Jo’s is made of a combination of healing herbs and oils that work together for fast healing relief. I take organically grown lavender flowers from my very own garden to infuse it with Jojoba oil and a little bit of Organic Olive oil. I also take calendula leaves and do the same in the Sweet Almond Oil and Olive Oil. The process takes 4-6 weeks. Then I strain them, and start making the salve by adding Avocado Oil, Beeswax, and a touch of vitamin E oil.
What makes Cheeky Jo-jo's is the combination of these healing properties.
Lavender is an anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, anti-bacterial, and has anti-fungal properties. It is also known for its calming and soothing effect. This soaked/infused in the Jojoba oil which is known to promote wound healing, reduce inflammation, and helps with acne is a powerful component in this salve.
Calendula as well is known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties. It’s known to help heal small wounds, scrapes, thrush, as well as helping inflammation and soothing irritated skin. I infuse this in Sweet Almond Oil which reduces inflammation and possesses an antioxidant. It is also analgesic which is a mild pain reliever. The cicatriazant in sweet almond oil also helps wounds heal faster. This amazing oil also helps lock in the moisture aiding to dry and chapped skin.
Avocado oil has high nutritive value! It’s rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, B5, Lectihin, and Squalene and Fatty Acids which the skin loves! It also has Phytosterols, that can help take the burn out of an itch. It also promotes cellular regeneration which makes it great for fragile skin.
Olive Oil is full of antioxidants that are good for your skin. It is known to improve skin elasticity and has regenerative prosperities. (helping those wrinkles under the eyes). It helps heal burns and wounds and fights free radicals.
Beeswax also has healing properties! It provides a protective barrier keeping skin safe of contaminates while locking the moisture in and preventing dry skin. It is anti-bacterial helping your skin stay clean and is also anti-inflammatory helping soothe irritated skin.
