Fresh lipbalm supplies for Honey shop in Brighton’s Open Market (Greenman Beebalm and PureBee)

01 Dec 2020 Greenman has delivered fresh supplies of lipbalm to Green Valleys Honey shop in Brighton’s Open Market. There is a new retail price of £5.90, but Green Valleys has limited supplies for £4.50. Our last price increase was in 2012, and the cost of making by hand, and organic ingredients, has been going up. We think its worthwhile, as we, the makers, use the product daily, and it really works to keep skin and lips moisturised and healthy. We have come to rely on Beebalm to keep lips free of cold sores and minor infections, and also use it to protect minor cuts and burns. It is more expensive to buy ingredients and make in this way.

It is important to only use organic beeswax on your skin – as others may contain pesticides and antibiotics. Ours is not only organic, but community farmed in Ethiopia – see here for info. Tea Tree Oil is well known as an antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal agent. Wheatgerm and Camellia Oil nourish and protect. Our lipbalm is made from fresh ingredients and preservative free and is sold fresh.

Visit the Honey shop in central Brighton’s Open Market – the best selection of honey, plus magnificent bee products including the legendary Propolis tincture, also hand made. The Old Market is home to many artist shops and the Gallery 45 street art gallery, not to mention Reverb Radio studio, herbalists and other natural foods and vintage shops – well worth a visit:

Beebalm used to heal a cold sore in hospital – testimonial from Poland

Bee Balm TT prod shotI just received a brilliant testimonial from Poland:

“I had a bad cold sore at the time I had to go to the hospital to give birth to my baby and I took a few of the (medicated) cold sore patches with me (not to pass the infection to my baby), but they only made my cold sore worse.

After couple of days my husband brought me my lip balm (Greenman tea tree BeeBalm) and after couple of days not only it helped to soothe it but my cold sore was gone completely.

Cold sore remedies

Green man vine9 - webThere’s is a great, well researched and referenced account of how cold sores work on Disabled World. We can’t get rid of cold sores permanently, because the virus (Herpes Simplex) lives in our body and comes to the surface to reproduce when conditions are right. It likes warm, wet, acid environments – like around your lips. When your natural skin defences are down – say during sunburn, or winter wind and cold dehydration the virus surfaces and multiplies by invading vulnerable skin cells so causing the sore blister.

Remedy and Prevention: We can make conditions hard for the virus when it surfaces, and we can help our skin to heal, for example with the natural remedies in Greenman’s BeeBalm. In my experience daily use of BeeBalm keeps my lips in healthy condition and any cold sores are infrequent (around once a year, usually when I don’t use the balm for a few days), minor and brief (three days from tingle to gone).

There are many other natural remedies detailed in the Disabled World story – for more, click here:

The original testimonial that Greenman’s Beebalm helps heal cold sores

My recent experience with Facebook/Shopify caused me to reflect on my claim that that Beebalm can help heal cold sores. The thing is, EVERY TIME time I get feedback when I supply a tube of BeeBalm to someone who has a cold sore, they say its a really good remedy:

  1. immediate comforting of sore
  2. over a day or so the sore/blister stops growing and dries out
  3. over the next few days the skin heals.

It’s logical really, Tea Tree Oil and Beeswax and Wheat Germ Oil have been known to provide anti viral, skin care and vitamin E properties for a long time.

In some cases, people have been using pharmacy medications to no avail, and even feel a bit desperate, and found BeeBalm to work. And they tell me, so I feel confident about recommending this as a remedy. I’m going get more testimonials organised. In the meantime, below is the original testimonial from my original blog that made me feel I should share my confidence with others.

A cure for hay-fever? a testimonial for BeeBalm beeswax lip balm

Bee Balm TT prod shot

BeeBalm lip balm contains organic beeswax from Ethiopian forests – community farmed using traditional African methods, far from civilisation and totally pure! other ingredients are wheat germ oil, Jojoba and tea tree oil. Lovely! Click the image for more info

One of my customers took the trouble to let me know she is using BeeBalm to cure hay-fever symptoms. She was suffering really badly, sneezing, runny nose, red streaming eyes. She was using shop -bought hayfever tablets, which were reasonably effective, but then she thought of rubbing BeeBalm on her nose and eyes – and the symptoms have almost completely disappeared. Beeswax contains traces of bee pollen, which is used to help with hayfever, and I guess the wax also traps pollen, as Marta suggests. Her testimonial is copied below:

In her own words: My hayfever started at the beginning of June this year (every year it’s different but it happens always in Spring/early Summer when the pollen is in the air) and as the air was very dry and windy, it’s been really bad – the antihistamin pills I was taking were helping only for a few hours and I’m not really in favour of taking pills. I’ve started putting lip balm on my eyelids and around my nostrils and it works great! (I guess it stops pollen from entering the body) – I do it every few hours, it depends on weather conditions – but don’t need the pills anymore! I still happen to sneeze or have itchy eyes, but with the lip balm it happens only couple of times a day (whilst before I was sneezing at least couple of hundred times). And it smells really nice 🙂 Highly recommended!
