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.

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.
