Alfred Woelbing will be remembered as the original kitchen mixologist. He created Carmex lip balm as a solution for his own cold sores, and even then it was packaged in bright yellow jars. Even a lanolin ration during World War II couldn't stop production. Now what started as a DIY recipe has expanded to have worldwide fans including NBA star LeBron James.
