Chapped lips most frequently occur in persons with pale, bluish, moist 

lips and a languid circulation, who are much exposed to the wind or 

who are continually moving from heated apartments to the external air. 

East and north-east winds are those that generally produce them. The 

occasional application of a little cold cream, lip salve, spermaceti 

ointment, or any other mild unguent, will generally prevent them, and 

remove them when they have already formed. A still more elegant and 

effective preventive and remedy is glycerine diluted with about twice 

its weight of eau-de-rose, or glycerinated lip salve or balsam. 

 

The moist vesicular eruption of the lips, referred to above, may also 

generally be prevented by the use of glycerine, or any of the 

preparations just mentioned. After its accession, the best treatment 

is to freely dust the affected portion of the lips with violet powder, 

finely powdered starch, prepared chalk, or French chalk or talc 

reduced to an impalpable powder by scraping or grating it. 

 

The following formulas of preparations are all valuable for 

beautifying and preserving the beauty of the lips:-- 

 

=White Lip Salve--No. 1.=--Take half a pound spermaceti ointment, 

liquify it by the heat of warm water, and stir in one-half dram neroli 

or essence de petit-grain. In a few minutes pour off the clear portion 

from the dregs (if any) and add twenty drops of oil of rose. Lastly, 

before it cools, pour it into jars. 

 

=Lip Salve--No. 2.=--This indispensable adjunct to the toilet is made by 

melting in a jar, placed in a basin of boiling water, a quarter of an 

ounce each of white wax and spermaceti; flour of benzoin, fifteen 

grains; and half an ounce of oil of almonds. Stir till the mixture is 

cool. Color red with two-penny worth of alkanet root. Splendid for 

keeping the lips healthy and of a beautiful crimson color. 

 

=French Lip Salve.=--Lard, twenty-six ounces; white wax, two ounces; 

nitre and alum in fine powder, of each one-half ounce; alkanet to 

color. 

 

=German Lip Salve.=--Butter of cacao, one-half ounce; oil of almonds, 

one-quarter ounce; melt together with a gentle heat, and add six drops 

of essence of lemon.
