The harsh winter winds and deep cold can dry out your pet’s nose and paws just like they do our lips and hands. The combination of these natural oils and fats will soothe and moisturize dry, chapped skin, including calloused elbows. All ingredients are non-toxic and safe – just in case your pet licks some off, as you know they will! This recipe makes about 5.5 ounces. Store in a small jar or tin – or six, one-ounce lip balm tubes.
