THE BEES KNEES: for sale

it starts here...
the star ingredient, the beeswax, was absent for the shot

and ends here:
an all-natural lip balm, a blend of beeswax,vitamin E, lanolin,joboba oil, coconut and essential oils.

"the bees knees" is a term indicating excellence of quality.
Bees carry pollen back to the hive in sacs on their legs. The allusion in this term is to the concentrated goodness to be found around the bee's knees.

Today was my first (of many to come) attempt at crafting my own lip balm. By blending beeswax from our own McCarty Apiaries, with vitamin E, lanolin, coconut oil, jojoba oil and essential oils, I created 50 tubes of lip balm with MINIMAL ingredients.

After experimenting with my first batch, I was able to perfect the recipe, providing the best consistency with a comfortable level of flavor. The Bees Knees is currently available in Orange Spice, Vanilla Mint, Peppermint, and Tangerine flavors. More flavors, including Cappuccino, Lemon, Lemon Mint and Cinnamon, to come within the next week or so!

If you are interested in purchasing YOUR OWN Bees Knees, please contact me, via this post, email, or by phone. The cost is $2 per tube.
