Beezin: The new trend for teens to get high?

By Amanda Stewart,

It seems teens are always looking for a new way to get high, but who would have thought that the next high for teenagers might be slathering a little Burt’s Bees lip balm on their eyelids?

Social media was full of evidence of what kids are calling “beezin’” on Friday, according to New York Daily News. It is allegedly part of a long list of activities teens are trying out while still foolishly young, such as huffing glue or cinnamon.

"It's the peppermint oil that's causing the burning sensation and I suppose some people think that is kind of funny," Dr. Brett Cauthen told KOKH.

So how would Burt’s Bees get you high? Some users have said that they experienced a high or drunk feeling, according to Science World Report. Others have reported that they are “beezin” to stay awake.

Some people think that this could simply be a trend-rumor, however, many are wondering if this is true, how safe is it?

A representative for Burt’s Bees would not confirm whether the trend was true or not, but urged consumers to use as the manufacturer intended (on their lips).
