The state poison control center based in Sioux City has a new warning for parents.

Poison Center spokeswoman Tammy Noble says a new fad among teenagers is called “beezin”.

It involves using the brand-name Burt’s Bees mint lip balm in a place the product wasn’t designed to go.


OC….stay awake :19

Noble says beezin is a risky thing to do:


OC…..peppermint oil. :14

There may also be a risk of causing a bacterial infection if the balm was also used on the lips.

Noble says she wants parents to know about this oddball fad.


OC…….TYPES OF THINGS. ;15

The hotline for the Poison Control Center is 800-222-1222.
