Most of us use lip balm to keep our lips smooth when the weather is dry.

But it seems some teens may be using one brand for something else: getting high.

They are taking Burt’s Bees, which is made with beeswax and peppermint oil, and rubbing it on their eyelids to add to the experience of getting drunk or high. Others said it helps keep them alert. The trend is called “beezin.”

Some doctors warn that it can be dangerous and cause inflammation or even pink eye.
