Our honey is harvested straight from the hive, lightly filtered then bottled. It is produced by the bees and nothing is ever added to their finished product. Our local floral sources include but are not limited to; a large variety of mid-western native wild botanicals, perennial and annual flowers, as well as fruits, nut trees and flowering shrubs. A worker bee can only produce about 1/10 of a teaspoon of honey in her lifetime. In order to produce just one pound of honey honeybees need to visit 2 million flowers!
Raw honey is full of vitamins, minerals, and rich in antioxidants. Loaded with healthy plant compounds, it has been linked to many health benefits such as helping to combat seasonal allergies. It is also antibacterial and is effective at building immunity.
Did we mention that it taste great, too?
ALL NATURAL SKIN CARE HIVE PRODUCTS
Because honey is antibacterial & anti-fungal it can help speed healing of some skin conditions with its beneficial skin-loving properties. Honey can also act as a humectant to help retain moisture to our skin. Those are perfect reasons why we use it in a lot of our All-Natural Skin Care Hive Products.
We also use plant derived butters and oils, lots of herbs, beeswax, and sometimes propolis in our All-Natural Skin Care Hive Products, including in our Soaps.
Propolis is yet another beneficial substance produced by the honeybee. They produce this sticky matter from plant resins and substances found in nature. They will use it to seal and protect the colony. It fortifies their hive and staves off diseases and pests. Like honey and pollen, propolis also has an innumerable amount of beneficial properties.
Our handmade Soap varieties are made using the freshest ingredients available. We carefully and conservatively utilize everything available from our hard working honeybees in order to make our best products. Honey acts as a humectant and has antimicrobial properties perfect for our soaps. Beeswax is a highly sought ingredient for skin care.
Our Honey and Oatmeal Soap is a long-lasting soap with a great lather. It has a natural honey scent with aromatic hints of beeswax. Oatmeal is soothing and gently exfoliates.
