You Dropped a Balm On Me

The mechanism that made Pavlov’s dog drool at the ringing of a bell and all of us salivate at the smell of fresh-baked pumpkin pie is proof positive that the five senses are inextricably linked. Small wonder, then, that a moisturizing cream instilled with the essences of universally-loved flavors such as Birthday Cake and Black Cherry would create such a scintillating fusion of sensory experiences that the proprietor would have to put a warning label (Do Not Eat) on the container. To sample a Bunny Butt Apothecary product, like listening to opera by candlelight or sharing dinner on the beach, is to create a moment of escape from the realities of life that leave us wearied and worried. The whipped creams, distinguished by clever titles like Currant Obsession and Sucre Bleu, are among the most unique creations in the shop, but with offbeat hits like Apples and Twigs Shaving Bar Soap, Honeymoon Mineral Lip Tint, and Aromatastic Perfume Oils in the catalog, Michael Buble’s ballads would be censored for their edginess before Bunny Butt would ever be accused of producing anything remotely commercialized.

Compelling as all these offerings are, however, it’s probably Bunny Butt’s Lip Balms that steal the show. Beginning with relatively traditional flavors including Fresh Mint and Clover Honey, the pyramid rises toward more and more unconventional flavors such as Chocolate Truffle and Pomegranate, with fare as exotic as Mojito and Lychee (it’s apparently a fruity flavor of Asian origin) at the top. As many of you ladies know, these balms aren’t just for cooling the burn of a bad chap, but are also wonderfully useful for causing a good chap to remember the mysterious taste of your lips. But whatever your use for such an item might be, you’ll be glad to know that Bunny Butt is giving one Smoochy Bun Gift Set, which is a choice of any three lip balms in an imprinted muslin pouch, to the winner of today’s giveaway. To qualify, visit Bunny Butt Apothecary, then come back here to tell us about your favorite product.

**We have a winner! Congrats to Jenifer who said, "The Mojito and Lychee Lip Balm sounds delicious!!**
