Last year about this time, Letibalm sent me a care package that included a collection of their Nose and Lip Repair Balm that has seen me through the past months of sun, cold and air travel. I have really enjoyed and benefitted from the high-quality product, just finishing the last of it recently. As if they knew, I’ve just received the gift of new stock.
As you know, whether it’s caused by allergies, hay-fever, colds or flu, blowing the nose repeatedly can damage delicate skin leaving it red, chapped and sore. Nobody wants that and it certainly isn’t a look for romance.
Natural Cold & Flu Remedy
I’ve been let into this delicious and very effective cold and flu remedy, which I’ve just made to ward off the sniffles. Ingredients: 1 cup honey, 2 sliced lemons, a chunk of fresh sliced ginger.
Add the lemon slices, ginger and honey in layers – a layer of lemon slices, a few pieces of ginger, and a big spoon of honey. Repeat until the jar is full, then seal and place in the fridge for 12+ hours, so the flavours infuse. Stir before use (the honey and lemon may sperate), then add a couple of teaspoons to a mug of hot water and drink immediately. You can keep it sealed in the fridge for up to two months – and it tastes wonderful.
More About Letibalm
Letibalm has been especially created to protect and care for the lips, nose and the skin in-between. Originally from Spain, it’s the first balm of its kind and the only nose and lip repair balm available in South Africa.
Letibalm gently moisturises dry skin, helps to repair painful cracks and calms irritation. It also creates a protective layer on the skin to prevent further chapping. Thanks to natural decongestants menthol and camphor, Letibalm also helps to ease breathing.

Top Tips: Caring for your nose and lips this winter:
- Keep the skin well-moisturised.
- Use very soft tissues or toilet paper with aloe vera or calendula.
- Gently pat or blot the nose rather than wipe.
- Apply Letibalm nose and lip repair balm to protect, moisturize and help heal the skin.
- Wash with lukewarm water, avoiding harsh soaps or exfoliators.
- Use a saline spray to keep nasal passages moist.
- Use a humidifier to add moisture to the air.
