Apparently, lip balm isn't just for lips anymore.

In Oklahoma City, kids are using it to get high, slathering Burt's Bees lip balm wax on their eyelids for the effect. According to Fox 25, the new trend is called "Beezin," because of the Burt's Bees lip balm, and those who have tried it say the sensation causes disorientation similar to being drunk or stoned. It's also been keeping them alert.

As for the tingling sensation in the Bees products, Dr. Brett Cauthen told the news station, "It's the peppermint oil that's causing the burning sensation and I suppose some people think that is kind of funny." The oil is also a "very strong irritant," he said, which can cause inflammation and the eye redness of eye swelling.

According to Elite Daily, Beezin' has been around since 2013, but just because the products in Burt's Bees are supposedly 100 percent natural doesn't mean putting it on the eyes is safe. "Natural doesn't equate with safety," the doctor said. Putting it on the eyes could actually cause pink eye-like symptoms...which would not be cute.
