I do love a good lip balm.
And I care about honeybees. The global epidemic of declining honeybee populations has serious consequences for the entire food chain, not just the supply of honey and beeswax.
And one way to support the honeybee cause AND protect your lips from chapping at the same time is to try Portland Bee Balm.
The good folks at Portland Bee Balm sent me a couple of samples to try and also 2 sets to share.
The ingredient list is super simple: Certified organic coconut and olive oil, Oregon beeswax, and Oregon organic peppermint oil. The unscented variety leaves out the peppermint oil.
The label is made from unpulped wood. That’s right, it’s a very thin slice of wood instead of a paper label and the ink is sustainable soy ink. According to the website, their labels use fewer resources to create than conventional labels. And they are also beautiful — the texture of the label begs to be touched.
The balm itself is basic and does a great job! I use the Oregon Mint variety and it not only protects my lips, it’s a nice cuticle conditioner as well.
Hubby commandeered the unscented because it is the perfect balm for bearded gentlemen to use with snorkel masks — and we do hope to go snorkelling again, soon!
I have 2 sets of Portland Bee Balm (Oregon Mint and Unscented) to give away!
This is very quick giveaway since I leave for NY next Wednesday for a week of family wedding celebrations (sister-in-law is tying the knot!).
Have fun and good luck!
