We created Mira's Naturals Cocoa Kisses Raw Honey Lip Balm in 2014 as a seasonal flavor just for Valentine's Day as a refreshing way to keep your lips hydrated and protected with SPF 9. It is made with four simple ingredients: alkanet root infused almond oil, raw honey, beeswax, and cocoa butter. The perfect light pink color comes from the root of the alkanet plant and we use the root powder to infuse the almond oil prior to making it in our small batch creations.
About Mira's Naturals
The story of us….. Mira’s Naturals was a spark ….a wish for a bright future…a vision of combining all the things we are passionate about and driving it towards a useful purpose. Our daughter Mira is diagnosed on the Autism spectrum and we had always been brainstorming ideas on how to create a sustainable business to support her needs in the future. Since her diagnosis we were also constantly seeking healthier and more natural options to use in our household. Then along came beekeeping and all of the wonderful, useful, healthy offshoots of it. My husband, Mike, stepped into beekeeping under the encouragement of our dear friends who own the only working farm in our community of Woodstock, NY. They had once had bees and were wanting to have them back as a fixture on the farm. It was an awakening.
With proper education and the support of well trained and seasoned veterans of beekeeping, the process began. As we researched all of the amazing and practical uses for honey and beeswax we began to dabble in the creation of those things and Mira’s Natural Honey Lip Balm was born! This was an exciting moment because it was a healing product and people loved it. The constant encouragement, positive feedback and customer satisfaction is what continues our search for other products to make and share with our family and community.
