Lip Balm

pollinator lip balm still life

Poured by hand with no added fragrance or color

Pollinator Lip Balm has a natural fragrance and flavor from its wholesome ingredients — beeswax and domestic sunflower or almond oil. I take care to pour this by hand for my family’s sensitive skin and enjoy sharing the same care with others.

I filter and melt small batches of beeswax with the help of the sun. Once it’s melted, I grate it by hand, then mix my recipe and pour it into new, empty tubes. No added fragrance, no added color.

Because I heard that lip balm works well for ice fishing reels, I removed honey from the ingredient list. No negative impact to quality has been experienced or reported.

Speaking of color — the color of the wax varies according to the use of the wax, age, time of year, etc. That means that you may buy a tube of white-er lip balm one day, and a yellow-er one the next. The same recipe was used, but the wax was harvested under different conditions.
