Beeswax from world's largest honeybees, Apis laboriosa, which nests high on the cliffs in midhills of Nepal is infused with Apricot kernel oil from the high Himalayas of Mustang to make these incredible, "The Last Honey Hunter" SPECIAL LIMITED EDITION, lip balms. 

Handmade in Nepal, using 100% Nepali ingredients, these balms are extra conditioning and moisturising. Used daily or when your skin needs a little extra love, these balms will help to soften and heal dry or chapped skin.

The Last Honey Hunter
The tradition of hunting wild cliff honey in Nepal goes back for countless generations. For the Kulung tribe, there is a belief that to become the honey hunter you have to have a certain special dream. Only those who have had this dream are granted safe passage onto the steep and dangerous cliffs where the largest honeybees on earth (Apis laboriosa) build their hives. 
This limited edition lip balm uses beeswax harvested by the last man in the Kulung village of Saadi who has had the dream - featured in the short film The Last Honey Hunter. Check out #thelasthoneyhunter on social media for more info on this incredible story and to see where this wax comes from.

Khali Khutta balms come in beautifully handmade wooden boxes made in Nepal from Indian Rosewood (a native hardwood) giving each box its own unique and attractive grain pattern.

We use Indian Rosewood not only because it has beautiful grain but also because it is a hard-wearing hardwood. Once the balm has been used, the empty box can be cleaned with warm water, allowed to dry and then used for storage of your small treasures – rings and jewellery for example. Other balms come in plastic twisty tubes or boxes, which after the balm has been finished have little if any use. Khali Khutta’s balm boxes, however, are not like that – we go that extra mile because we believe it is worth it.

We add no artificial preservatives to our balms, so recommend storing them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. For the longest shelf life, store in the refrigerator.

We work with groups and individuals in Nepal to create our range of natural, ethical and unique products. By buying this item, you are helping provide an additional income to Nepali farmers, women and communities in the Himalayan country of Nepal. This income helps to support rural livelihoods and provides extra support to increase the independence of rural women, who are often not in charge of their household's income.
