I don't believe in lip balm but if I did I would use this stuff. I think lip balm makes your lips dependent on it, so that is why I just use straight bacon grease. I save all the cooking grease from my bacon in a jar and use it for many things like hair gel/grease, deodorant, suntan lotion, lip medication, etc. Since changing to this new form of oral hygiene my number of friends as grown exponentially! I have been getting great comments and remarks like "You smell so good I could eat you!" and "Is that the smell of you suntanning or is that bacon cooking!?" Thanks bacon!
