About This Precious…

One of us here (not the bearded one) grew up with a bit of an obsession with a lip smacking 90s lip product. One day while making beard balms, she realized she already had most of the things she needed to make her own, grown up, seasonal version.

Each season has three flavors, a fruit flavor, a bakery flavor, and a spirits (booze) flavor, just like this one, to add to your hoard. This one is Bourbon, Bananas Foster & Toasted Marshmallow. Collect them all, nerds.

Drunken Embers are...banana and marshmallow licked by flame and swimming in spirits
About The Formula

This lip butter may be the perfect thing for your lips. Most lip balms and butters are too shiny, too waxy, too sticky or just don't stick around.

This one is built for those who want to keep their lips from cracking off, but don't want to feel like they have a bunch of thick, sticky stuff on their lips.

This blend of beeswax and butters is smooth-spreading, and wears like a second skin on your lips, with no sweetener added - only flavor.

Is This Even The Right Product For You?

Have thee lips? Then yes.

About the Inspiration

January is the month when the holidays are over, but we aren’t ready to let them go just yet. And so we throw together the remnants of the season to extend the joy.

The moment we found Bourbon flavor from our flavor supplier, it was a foregone conclusion we would need to use it in SOMETHING. But what? Our minds turned to dessert.

While rum may be a traditional choice for bananas foster, we thought it would be delicious with bourbon instead. And topped with marshmallows? In all honesty, we were less than sober when we came up with this spectacular, delicious mess.

Tips & Directions

Rub it on your kissin' parts.


Although these little tubes are made for lips, we and plenty of others have been known to use a bit of lip butter (especially the unflavored Ore variety) on cuts, scrapes, burns, ripped off lip skin in a waxing incident to protect broken skin to speed healing. Works like gangbusters
