It isn't just for NIPS! Oh no no no no. I even have proof. Welcome to the wonderful world of Nipple Butter Uses!
In the winter the weather is so dry that being SHOCKED turns in to daily torture (Sorry Pooker and Kit Kat!) Combine that with my self labeled SEMI-germaphobic ways (hello hand washing skills and germy juice...aka hand sanitizer) and my hands kinda remind me of elephant skin.
(Awwwww!! Look at that cute Nummie Lovin' elephant! He looks WAY cuter here than on my hands!)
Oh sure.... try lotion you say. DUDE when your skin is so cracked, so dry it is screaming for water like a lost man in the dessert, to the point of bleeding ... lotion BURNS. The only thing that helps is a HEAPING amount of Vaseline.. but ewwwww. Vaseline feels icky. That is my LAST resort.
(I will be honest and admit I do not stay on top of a daily lotion regiment. So yeah, it could be semi self inflicted.... But shush.)
Sometimes it gets so bad that even the tips of my fingers get dried out and EVERYTHING feels rough and scratchy. But there is something that makes me shake in my Mummie boots. When the weather begins to get cold and that first spark of electric shock can be seen... I can feel my heart begin to race and I want to hibernate like a Mummie Bear. The one thing above all else that brings the fear of pain.... crazy pain... shooting pain... "OH MY GOSH THAT HURTS" pain.
The worst ever.. thumb crack!
(Just the wording makes me wanna scream out.)
Here... let me show you what I mean:
(Looks harmless right? WRONG! Inside that wee little crack are a pack of sword wielding, mini ninja warriors attempting to ninja chop the side of my thumb off. Not kidding. They also have been MUCH deeper... Like the black hole deep.)
I have tried EVERYTHING to keep it healed and eliminate those darn ninjas. For the past 4 years I have used New Skin Liquid Bandage. EEEEEEKKKKKKKKKKKK. It is like pouring bleach in an open wound. I finally said "I AM DONE WITH THAT STUFF." Not only does it burn, but the smell.... knock you down stinky.
So ONE day (this winter) I decided to try something else. Instead of reaching for the liquid fire, I picked up my Earth Mama Angel Baby Nipple Butter. Why? I thought "well if it works for cracked nipples... why not for my cracked thumb?" Made perfect sense to me at the time.
So I decided to document it all.
(Thumb crack Ninjas... meet Nipple Butter.)
(I used an extra large amount.... ever read "picture enlarged to show detail?".... Yeah it is kinda like that. The rest I used on my chapped lips! Oh yeah you can SOOOOO do that too!)
(Happy Nummie Lover on the cover.... happy thumb!)
When I applied my EMAB Nipple Butter, my thumb did not burn. There was no chemical smell that tried to knock me out. There was a pleasant cocoa butter scent and no pain.... no nothing. I waited for something to happen and I was so happy when I realized it was not going to hurt.
I keep my EMAB Nipple Butter on the counter so when I walk by I can just open it up and slide my thumb inside. I have to do this many times a day... but it DOES WORK... it DOES help. I am happy to say that even though my crack still comes back every few weeks, the Crack Ninjas are gone! (Take that you nasty Ninjas! You got beat by Nipple Butter! HA!)
I can also tell you that Nipple Butter works on dried cracked, elephant skin. It will take some time to absorb into your skin... but there is no burning! Plus it does not require much at all. SCORE.
So when you find yourself no longer needing Nipple Butter for.... well... your nipples... FEAR NOT! There are many ways to use up the remaining butter! Nipple Butter is wonderful for:
Dry skin/dry patches
Great things come in small packages!!!!!
(Also try my other BFF Coconut Oil...not just for cooking! MMMMMM.)
(Earth Mama Angel Baby did not ask me to do this "review." I decided to do it on my own.. and they do not even know I was doing it. I just love me some EMAB and I wanted to share with you why! The words and photos above are mine... like it or not.)
