Honey Fix My Lips Balm
Honey Fix My Lips (in a wind up tube) is the lip balm we use on the farm in the windy depths of winter, and when summer scorchers leave us parched. This is the balm that even the toughest, air-conditioned, cracked-lip sufferers swear by! It's time to throw away your synthetic chapsticks people!
Light on the lips, tasting slightly herbally/musky (though with no chemical fragrance as it's all organic oils/butters), we're proud of this lip balm because it really works wonders. Combining a variety of organic carrier oils, organic shea and cocoa butters and essential oils, it's base is our very own sun-melted beeswax and hand-spun honey from our hives.
This lip balm is completely edible. It contains no synthetic flavours or colours...and that's so important because when you put lip balm on your lips, you end up ingesting it. If you’re looking for a lip balm for dry, chapped lips – and to prevent them – this is it.
About our balms in general
We don't buy our beeswax and honey in little pellets, we actually collect it ourselves from our hives, so we know how truly pure it is. As beekeepers, we use no chemicals, no antibiotics and we never feed our bees sugar syrups. Once we've collected the wax (and thank the bees by planting them more flowering plants to feed on!), the first step is for us to wash the wax with plain water. Once it's been washed, it becomes quite light and crumbly as it dries over the course of a day or two. Then we open up our solar oven, point it to the sky, and add a pot of water, a filter, and another pot on top in which we place the washed beeswax. The sun melts the wax, and it drips through the filter leaving any other debris behind. The wax then drips into the water below, collecting on the surface. Removing the pot from the sun oven, we let it cool and when it has - there is a beautiful disk of bright yellow beeswax floating on top of the water! Now it's time to grate it for use in our balms. It's a long, beautiful process, and it's soooo worth it! Honey and beeswax are natural humectants...that means they draw and trap moisture to the skin, they also have anti-bacterial properties and all round goodness! That's what we want on our family's lips and skin!!!! Something edible!!! So we add only organic ingredients and voila – beautiful balms that are good for you and good for the planet.
Our range of products includes lip balms, Farm Balm natural moisturiser, natural insect repellent in a beeswax stick (because we didn’t want to spray our kids with toxins!) and beautiful goat’s milk soaps made fresh right here on the farm thanks to our friendly herd of goat’s including Ruby, Ivy, Kay, Tracey and Princess.
