lip balm!

I love to try new lip products, but I always come back to this one. On the scorching days of our desert summers, or the windblown winter days of our holidays in the Northwest, I rely on Rosebud lip salve. This is not a new product; it's been around for more than a hundred years. It feels fabulous, it adds a little shine, and it heals chapped lips. My only complaint is that if I've just applied moisturizer to my face, my hands are too slippery to open the tin. I finally realized that I could scoop some Rosebud Salve into a more easily opened container.
I buy this at ebay, but I've also seen it at Victorian Trading Company. I'm currently using a minted version.
I misplaced my Rosebud Salve in my suitcase last time I was in Oregon. Two days without it in the cool March air left my lips dry and rough. Thankfully, I discovered the salve in an unexplored pocket, and my lips recovered overnight.

Never heard of it, but is sounds lovely. Does it have a "rosey" taste and smell?

I wouldn't say it has a rosey fragrance; in fact I don't notice a fragrance at all (except in the mint variety). I love it for the soft feeling and the healing benefits.
