Hemp Stick- Our Lip Gloss Equivalent

Oct. 4, 2019:  There are currently four flavors of our beeswax lip balm (available in a four count variety pack).  The new Hemp Stick is the only version to include cold-pressed organic hemp seed oil. Hemp seed oil easily penetrates skin to help soothe and restore dry or damaged lips.  Our Hemp Stick lip balm is the closest thing we sell to a lip gloss but with the convenience of still being offered in a standard lip balm tube. Our other three flavors still offer superb lip protection but do not come in a semi-transitional phase lip our hemp version does.  In...

Cooler Days Means More Beeswax And Better Lip Balm
Oct. 3, 2019- Pollen and Nectar sources become scarce as days become shorter and weather cools in autumn. The activities within beehives slow as the season slows down. Queens lay less eggs, drones begin to disappear from the hive, and the bee population plummets.  Remaining bees begin bringing in propolis which they use to fix up cracks in the hive that may compromise the hive in the coming winter.  But with the changing weather and dwindling bee population comes the best time of year to produce lip balm.  Fall signals the end of the beeswax harvesting period.  A wet, warm spring in...

Summer Solstice And Milankovitch Cycles
June 21, 1019 11:52AM Est- Milutan Milankovic was an extraordinary scientist who helped put both planetary movements and seasons into perspective.  He came up with the "Canon of the Earth's Insolation." This characterizes the climate of each planet in our solar system. This idea has been further backed by science in the century he came up with it.  For instance it is now confirmed that the Earth receives its' greatest radiation from the sun on January 3rd of each year as we are closest to the sun.  We also receive our lowest level of radiation from the sun each July...

Humidity And Pests

Ticks and mosquitoes thrive in humid conditions.  The drying effects of the sun are dangerous to both types of insects.  Ticks, which are arachnids, are especially susceptible to air humidity as they are unable to drink water and receive moisture entirely from the air. An in depth study found that the survival rates of ticks drops off significantly between 75% and 82% relative humidity.  Ticks exposed to drier (75% RH) air for over four hours were over nine times more likely to die than ticks exposed to more humid (82% RH) air for the same time period.    This explains...

Monsanto Set To Top Trillions In Cancer Liability
May 17, 2019.- No amount of money can make up for the pain and suffering one has to endure with cancer.  However, the spring courts across the country are beginning to punish Monsanto for the effects of their Roundup weedkiller.  Last month a terminally ill groundskeeper was awarded $289M by a jury that determined Roundup and its active ingredient, glyphosate, were responsible for causing Dewayne Johnson's illness.  This week a California Jury awarded over two billion dollars to a couple they determined were also given cancer by roundup.  Nearly all of the judgement was for punitive damages. This is the biggest court...

Can Ticks Jump?

We've all heard the term "When pigs fly"-  It is a hyperbole used to indicate the impossibility of something happening.  This term would be equally correct if one were to substitute the word tick for pig.  Ticks can not fly and they can not jump.  If you see a small insect jumping around quickly it is certainly not a tick.  Many tick species can however wait in a position known as "questing".  This is a maneuver where a tick holds onto grass, leaves or twigs by their third and forth pairs of legs.  They then hold their upper of first...

Roundup Proven To Cause Cancer In Court

Last year a United States court ruled Monsanto's Roundup Weed Killer caused or at least contributed to a former school groundskeepers terminal cancer (non-Hodgkin lymphoma).  The court awarded him $289M and 9,000+ other lawsuits are in the works throughout the country.  Multiple studies categorize the active ingredient in Roundup, glyphosate (an herbicide) as “probably carcinogenic to humans”.  This was the study used by the plaintiff and the jury voted unanimously in his favor.  This sets the precedent for the thousands of other lawsuits coming into courtrooms within the next couple years. Most studies show that short term exposure to glyphosate poses...
