Bursting with natural ingredients that can be easily pronounced, our handcrafted natural lip balm is soothing, emollient and humectant. It is the perfect natural solution for dry lips. These features make our lip balm unique. First and foremost it is made using beeswax from our own backyard bees. Our bees enjoy a natural environment surrounded by centenary trees, in a pesticide free home, right next to our organic vegetable garden, in a suburban tree lined neighborhood, completely sheltered from agricultural toxic chemicals.

Beeswax acts as an emollient and a humectant, drawing moisture to the skin and sealing it in. The oils we use such as apricot kernel oil, sweet almond oil, avocado oil, and vitamin E oil are specially chosen for their soothing and restorative properties when applied on lips.

The next best feature of our handcrafted lip balm is everything it does not have. It is chemicals-free, soy-free, corn-free, preservatives-free and parabens-free. Our natural beeswax lip balm is not tested on animals, and it is 100% vegetarian.

The ingredients in this lip balm are so safe that you could even eat it, and in fact we do end up eating lip balm when we lick our lips.


Dry lips can be a real nuisance. If you like being outdoors playing in your garden or going for a walk in nature, you know what I'm talking about.

I may forget my keys (not that that ever happened...), but my lip balm is always with me. I enjoy holding the cute tin in my hand.

I coat my lips with the balm and its instant relief, not just from the physical discomfort of chapped lips, but from realizing how annoying having dry lips was. It's like turning off the kitchen fan. You realize how loud it was once you turn it off.

Now I can smile knowing that my lips won't crack.

I have to confess that I don't make the lip balm alone. I have a crowd of busy bees that make the fantastic beeswax that I melt into the balm. Beeswax is a luxury ingredient. Did you know that bees consume between 6 and 8 pounds of honey in order to produce one pound of beeswax? It is really precious.


Don't you feel awful about all those plastic lip balm tubes that end up in a landfill? They are completely useless without lip balm in them. Our lip balm is different. Being Eco-Friendly is one of our natural lip balm benefits. Once you finish your lip balm, you are left with a cute vintage metal tin that can be reused to carry those small objects that tend to end up at the bottom of the purse. You can put your multivitamins in it when you go on a trip, or that daily medication you need to take at lunchtime when you are not home. It can fit a few coins, paperclips, and the screw that fell from your glasses. It's perfect for mints! And everybody that sees it will ask you where you got it.


Here's the part where we brag about our 100% natural lip balm. Our all natural beeswax lip balm ranked not only first in the Lip Balm Category, but best in the Cosmetics Division, which included creams, lotions, soaps and lip balm at the 2016 New Jersey Beekeepers Association Honey Show. Furthermore, it ranked first for a second consecutive year at the 2017 NJBA Honey Show. You know why it didn't win best in Cosmetics Division in 2017? That's because our soaps run with the prize! Most recently, our lip balm ranked first in the lip balm division at the 2021 Honey Show.

Winning entries were on display at the New Jersey State House in Trenton, New Jersey.
