Beeswax Lip Balm: NJBA Honey Show Winner 2016 and 2017
Regular price$ 6.50
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 it is 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.
Here's the part where we brag about our products. Our 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!
Winning entries were on display at the New Jersey State House in Trenton, New Jersey.
