According to KOKH-TV, teens are putting Burtís Bees lip balm on their eye lids. Doing so produces the effect of ďbeezin,Ē a feeling similar to being high or drunk.
Dr. Brett Cauthen said the natural ingredients produce the effect.
ďItís the peppermint oil thatís causing the burning sensation, and I suppose some people think that is kind of funny,Ē he said.
Beezin has even popped up on YouTube showing teens reacting to placing the lip balm on their eye lids. By the looks of things it canít be that enjoyable.
Cuthen stressed that even though Burtís Bees lip balm contains natural ingredients there is some risk to using the product outside of its intended use
