Honey is the nectar of the gods and the elixir of life. It’s a thick rich delicious sweet product that bees make from collecting nectar from various flowers. I love the smell and taste of honey and have used it often in cooking. I’ve mixed it with lemon tea to soothe a sore throat many many times. Honey has amazing healing properties and it’s a great natural energy booster.
So, I was just tickled to learn about Beecology and its natural skincare and hair products using honey, beeswax, and other ingredients that are good for us and our world. This is the philosophy behind Beecology. Today they produce a full line of natural products – lip balm, soap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and lotion – that help their customers keep their skin and hair healthy the natural way.
I got to try several of their delightful products. The Natural Honey and Peppermint body wash is divine. The fragrance of honey and peppermint is exhilarating, rejuvenating and refreshing. It really perks you up first thing in the morning taking a shower with this revitalizing body wash. It’s a caramel-colored soap that lathers nicely and leaves your skin soft, clean, and tingly. They use coconut, olive, organic hemp oils, and essential oils to create this spirited product. This product was my favorite by far.
The Original Honey Hand & Body Cream is thick, creamy and unscented. It contains shea butter and olive oil so it really leaves your hands super soft and smooth. My husband loves this cream because it’s unscented and is really great on his dry itchy skin. It’s very moisturizing and calming on his skin. He uses it on his hands, arms, legs, and feet and likes how quickly it absorbs into his skin without any greasy feel. Although it’s unscented, to me it smells like beeswax which is a nice down-to-earth scent.
The Honey & Oat Morning Soap is another of my favorite Beecology products. It has a fabulous mixture of healing ingredients including essential oils of grapefruit and peppermint which I absolutely love. You will feel spoiled with this spa-like soap that gently caresses and cleans your skin. The swirled soap has tiny bits of oatmeal, shea butter, and beeswax that nurture, moisturize, and repair your skin. I love the scent, lush lather, and how nice my skin feels after using it. It’s a superb soap! What a lovely Valentine’s gift these products would make.
Beecology promises to create products that are eco-friendly, 95% renewable with naturally derived ingredients and to give 20% of their net profits to the environment and social causes through their charity site sweet year.org.
