Lip, Body and Other Salve Set
Small: 1.5" x .5" Large: 2.5" x .75"
Originally developed to prevent blisters on poor soldiers’ feet, this wonder-salve is mostly used as a lip balm today. “Mostly” refers to “most of the Swedish population.” It is "the" lip balm - there really is nothing else competing with its popularity over the years and understandably so: it tastes good! It works as advertised, and it has a long range of uses: in Swedish military service, soldiers are instructed to use this to fry with in case there is nothing else, and eat it should harsh days pass without food...well, maybe it’s not as tasty as a burger, but given its lard content it would keep you going... Also useable as bike chain oil, a candle (if melted between fingers and molded around a wick) and in severe cases, some sort of hair-goo to get that terrible ‘do in shape. It contains, amongst other types of oils and fat, peanut oil, so nut-allergics should avoid this.
