Goodies in the Mail

I have had a busy day taking care of my chickens, ducks and wayward pigeon (at least we think it's a pigeon). During a break between the rain showers I went out to the mailbox. I was pleasantly surprised to find a package from Jess, over at The Beneficial Bee, containing the two lip balms I won in her giveaway last week. It's always nice to find a nice surprise like this in the mail!

I received a stick of organic Forty Bee Ylang Ylang (Spring) and a stick of Forty Bee Peppermint (Winter). I have very sensitive skin and mild excema on my face so I can't use anything with artificial or irritating ingredients. I was happy to read the ingredients and see that everything in them is organic and all-natural! They are very smooth and light, not heavy and greasy.

If you'd like to help support Jessica's bee habit stop by her Etsy shop and order some of her wonderful lip balm. Thank you Jess for such a wonderful gift today!


  1. I only use beeswax lip balm (or blam as my niece used to say it). I usually buy Burt's Bees, but I'll have a look-see at The Beneficial Bee. I like the packaging.

  2. Thanks for the news about the lip balm..I love beeswax products. Will have to check it out.
    We finally got a little rain here yesterday and the garden just popped up.

  3. Thanks for sharing about the lipbalm. I am constantly applying chapstick all day because my lips feel so dried out. This may work better. What a pleasant surprise to receive a gift in the mail..well a gift, mail or otherwise. I too love the packaging.

  4. Nothing like a freebie to start the day. Great find in the mailbox.
