FAT AND THE MOON || RUBY RED BALM
Oh yes y’all- ruby, flaming, opium poppy red tint for your lips! Made from veggies and herbs no less! This ruby red leans on the side of a deep orange, covering different territory than Fat and the Moon’s Lip & Cheek Stain. It has been used as a cheek stain too- but the color is less concentrated than the aforementioned Stain. This balm will moisturize and protect the lips while giving them that ‘just ate a cherry popsicle’ pout. Essential oils of clove and orange mirror the vibe of the color.

And if you were wondering why 'Fat and the Moon'....
Fat as the first word in the name of my business has gotten me in some interesting discussions. People ask me about the name all the time because they can hardly believe I would use a word that has such negative connotations, especially when it is used within ‘beauty care’.
In part, I use the word ‘fat’ to be provocative; I don’t believe fat is a dirty word. But most of the fat in Fat and the Moon comes from my love of the material- oil is the medium of external herbal medicine. Fat in the form of oil, is the gift of the seed. Fat, both in plants and animals, is where energy is stored. The richness we taste in food, and the suppleness we feel on our skin after a good slather of bath oil, is our bodies recognition of and pleasure in that vital energy. Oil from plants, in and of itself, is medicinal. I feel honored as a medicine maker to indulge in the play of fat and herbs, especially under the influence of the moon.
