Our sweet Honey Lip Balm is a soothing, moisturizing combination of almond oil and beeswax. Unlike many cosmetic lip balms, ours uses real beeswax taken from a honeycomb, providing a moisture barrier for the skin. The almond oil acts to soften and recondition your lips. This true beeswax lip balm has a sweet, natural scent equally suited to men and women. Ah, the serenity of colonial days! 0.35 oz.  
The recipe for our lip balm is similar to those used by colonists to protect their skin from the elements. Antique books in Colonial Williamsburg's collections describe endless uses for beeswax, which among others was a major element in colonial cosmetics. It is said that the phrase "mind your own beeswax" was coined as an admonition to ladies who ventured too close to the fire while wearing beeswax on their faces, as it would begin to melt.

BEST lip balm ever

by

Hands down the best lip balm ever! I'm a huge lip balm snob and have tried pretty much all (L'Occitaine, Jack Black, Nivea, Aquaphor, Burts Bees just to name a few) and this is by far my absolute favorite. My lips get very dry and crack in the winter and this balm saves them. Ever since I started using it my lips are wonderfully moisturized. I also have very sensitive skin and this doesn't irritate it at all. I sincerely hope they never stop making it!

The best lip balm, 10 years running!

When I was in 5th grade we took a field trip from Denver, CO to Williamsburg and I purchased this lip balm. I am now a 3rd year nursing student in Memphis and am ordering this in bulk again because it is hands down the best lip balm I've ever tried. A huge bonus is that is so affordable for such pure quality!!

It really is the best lip balm ever

This is the best lip balm I have ever owned. I bought it in Colonial Williamsburg on a whim on vacation, and I can't believe how much I love it. I have countless lip balms and moisturizers and this replaces them all. This very small tin has lasted well over a year for me - you only need a little - and I plan to order more so I have it ready to go once it runs out. Seriously, if you are thinking, "Should I really order this lip balm online from Colonial Williamsburg?" the answer is YES. You won't regret it.

Awesome product

This is the best lip balm I have ever used. I bought it once on a trip to Williamsburg and have been ordering it ever since. I react to a lot of lip balms and this on seems to have solved my problems!
