Portland Bee Balm

Brand & Anika, founders of Portland Bee Balm have kept bees for a few years now and are based in Portland, Oregon. Brad's love of beekeeping and the honeybees turned a backyard hobby into a business. Brad also makes the unique wooden display units for the balms.

The balms ($2.99 approx £1.85) are super cute. The labels are designed and made by small local businesses. They are made from non-pulped wood and the ink is soy based  The balms are made with high quality ingredients - beeswax from local hives, organic coconut and olive oils and Oregon Peppermint oil (or unscented).  

The lips feeling soft and nourished with a hint of gloss.  Wear alone or with lipstick.  See the online shop here.

Brand & Anika have some ideas you can follow to help bees thrive:

buy local honey
buy sustainably produced foods & products
plant a garden with lots of flowers
use organic gardening methods
keep your own bees
