A refined and feminine blend of bergamot, chamomile and lavender.

The story: Comforting like a cup of Earl Grey or a tattered old novel. Bergamot pairs perfectly with soft chamomile and lavender, transporting you back in time to Regency England - an era of gallantry and tender feelings in which writers like Jane Austen, Mary Shelley and William Blake flourished.

The product: A moisturising lip balm made with organic shea butter and pure essential oils. The eco-friendly tin contains over twice as much as a standard plastic tube.

Customer Reviews

Based on 7 reviews

The quality is premium as always, to me it smells very fresh and almost like peppermint but it's not overwhelming, I like it even if I was trying to get something similar to the sleep balm and to me this isn't it.

Thank you so much for the reviews, Sofia! We're delighted that you're happy with the quality of the products :) While we don't have a lip balm that is exactly the same scent as the sleep balm, I think Maleficent's Curse might be the closest one we have:

Feel free to reach out any time if you need more recommendations. Happy holidays and best wishes for 2022!


This is a wonderfully calming and relaxing scent! It's definitely not as strong as some of the others I've had from this shop such as Tea with Tumnus, Lime and Punishment or Journey to Moria that are more spicey, so I would highly recommend it if you like something more subtle for your lips! It smells a lot like the sleep balm as well if you're looking for a comparison.

Lovely but small

This balm is lovely - just fragrenced enough without being overpowering and keeps lips so soft. It's small though and expensive for the size. I've been using it a couple of times a day for approximately 5 days now and there's a good debt in it.


The scent is so soft and fresh without being too strong. The feel is also very soft without being sticky so I highly recommend.

Worth all the Tea in China

I love the fresh smell of bergamot like smelling my first cup of Earl Grey in the morning. Then the lovely, country cottage smell of lavender hits you, mmmmm. This was part of my first order and I love these lip balms so much! They’re not greasy, they make your lips feel luscious and you don’t have to reapply on a frequent basis (a bonus when you’re wearing a mask most of the day). Thank you :-)
