Handcrafted Natural Beeswax and Honey Lip Balm in Tin

Details

We make our Honey Kissed natural lip balm with the pure beeswax and honey we gather when we extract honey from our own beehives. Although we leave most of the honey in the hive for the bees to use as food, and we put most of the beeswax back after we extract the honey, we make sure to use every scrap of what's left over to make beeswax candles, lip balm, and skin lotion.

This perfect lip balm recipe begins with the natural, pure honey and beeswax from our beehives. Honey and beeswax soothe and protect your skin. We add highest quality Vanilla extract for a kiss of sweetness, and coconut oil. Honey Kissed lip balm has the combined subtle scent of vanilla and beeswax.

We test only on humans who are happy to give feedback on our products, never on animals. We make our lip balm in small batches to ensure the highest quality. If your lip balm melts after being exposed to high temperatures, place it on a flat surface in a cooler location and it will harden again. The lid is snug but it does not screw on, so if you live in a very hot climate and find that it melts, please place the tin in a plastic bag when you carry it around with you. The tin is 1.5" in diameter, 1/2" high, and contains 14 grams (.50 ounces) of lip balm.

We also have the same wonderful lip balm in plastic tubes, which contain 5 grams of balm. The listing is: https://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/product_view/12334376

If you want to mix and match Honey Kissed lip balm and lotion, or any other of my listings, please send me a message before you order and I will figure shipping cost.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

My husband George and I are small-city farmers working to make our little plot of land into a thriving, buzzing refuge. We call our little urban farm La Ferme Melliferalle. Mellifera is the Latin word for honey-bearing; and the western honeybee's name in Latin is Apis mellifera.

George is the chief beekeeper, but I love to suit up and help him. We've had bees for five years, and now have two beehives in our large garden, one a top bar hive and the other the traditional Langstroth beehive. We also tend hives in friends' gardens, and George has gathered over 20 wild swarms of honeybees, giving all but a couple to other local beekeepers, and teaching many newbies how to tend beehives.

George is also a master gardener, and along with being an expert orchid-grower, he fills our beautiful garden with many different plants for honeybees and other pollinators, as well as for butterflies. Our garden is certified by the National Wildlife Federation.

I've written several blog posts with many photographs and information about our beekeeping.
Here's a list:

Welcome to Garden Delights Arts & Crafts! From my original nature photographs, I create realistic and abstract images and designs and use them to make a wide variety of crafts and artwork. I love to experiment with alternative methods of printing and transfer. If you have any questions about my work, please contact me.

Prints:
I print my photographs on my Epson Stylus Photo R2400 with Epson Ultrachrome K3 pigment inks. Loose print prices (by paper size, with white border) are as follows:

4 x 6 inches: $6
5 x 7 inches: $15
8.5 x 11 inches: $25
11 x 14 inches: $35
13 x 19 inches: $45

My mandala prints are square. I can print up to 13 x 13 inches.

4 x 4 inches: $6
up to 5 x 5 inches: $15
up to 8 x 8 inches: $25
up to 11 x 11 inches: $35
up to 13 x 13 inches: $45

For larger sizes I use a professional printer. Please email me for prices and a time estimate for delivery, and I will prepare a special listing for you.

I list loose prints so people can frame and/or mat them as they wish, but I will gladly mat or frame them to order. Please send me an email with your ideas and I will let you know how long it will take and the price for the product and shipping, and prepare a special listing for you.

Sales tax:
California purchases are charged sales tax.

Shipping:
I generally ship via USPS. Most items ship priority, with insurance and tracking. Small items, such as lip gloss, ship first-class mail.

I ship within 3 business days of the date of payment. If you have any shipping questions, please contact me. I will ship internationally. Contact me before ordering and I will find the shipping cost and add it to the listing. Gift wrapping is available on request. Please provide information as to type of person and occasion.

If you want an item shipped to an address other than your paypal address, please specify on your order or email me immediately at HeidiRand@gmail.com with the correct shipping address, or I will ship it to your paypal address.

Refunds and Exchanges
I strive to represent all items as accurately as possible with descriptions and pictures. If you are not satisfied with an item, I will work with you to correct the situation and will provide refunds within two weeks of the purchase, minus the shipping costs. If an item does not meet your expectations, please contact me prior to leaving feedback.
