A Multi-Purpose Wax

Nurses give away the Lansinoh brand of Lanolin to new nursing Moms at Brigham & Women's.  They're well aware of the possible aches and pains ahead.  Lanolin, aka wool wax, is used to soothe sore nipples.  No delicate way around it.  Today I discovered another use: to heal messy, chapped lips.  Per my Mom Janet, I bought a cube at CVS this afternoon.  I forgot how goey it is!  If you ever decide to use this trick, it only takes a very very small amount.  Gross but it seems like it's working!
