It contains a mild antiseptic, which inhibits
bacteria growth, so when it is applied to cuts, scrapes, or abrasions, it helps heal
the skin quickly. This is partly why it's so great for healing the fissures of severely
chapped hands. Applied to fingernails - it heals brittle and splitting nails.
More fun facts about Bag Balm: It was taken to the North Pole by Admiral Byrd
in 1937 and it's been featured in modern day media ranging from Glamour Magazine,
the New York Times, and Oprah Winfrey. Unless you're lanolin allergic (wool allergic),
you should keep a tin of this around; you'll find tons of uses for it.
Directions for use: Soak skin or nails for at least five minutes in warm
water. Towel dry then apply Bag Balm Ointment. Cover with cotton gloves or clothing.
Please note: Bag balm is an ointment and so it will leave an oil stain on fabric.
