bee house hives hand balm is made in small batches in a copper kettle in my kitchen in northwest montana. i paired the finest local beeswax from Glacier County Honey Co. with housemade calendula infused sweet almond oil to create a solid lotion bar that heals rough hands as well as soothes tender skin.
bee house hives balm has been used by many different people... packers, potters, children, foresters, wool dyers, seamstresses, beekeepers, fisherman, butchers, teachers, hairdressers, ranch hands and the list goes on. it is truly an all around versatile balm.
INGREDIENTS: glacier county honey co. beeswax, calendula infused sweet almond oil, olive oil, grapeseed oil, rose hip seed oil, and a healthy spoonful of our very own bee house hives honey.
i started making hand balm when i needed a simple and natural product to use on my childs tender skin. as a beekeeper, i looked to my bees for help. two simple ingredients got me thinking: beeswax and honey.
beeswax helps by locking in moisture, fostering the skin cells and protecting the skin from environmental damages. beeswax contains powerful anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties that are all beneficial to the skin.
honey is antibacterial, full of antioxidants and extremely moisturizing.
handbalm began, with pure beeswax and honey from my bees. leaning on my 8 years of experience working as a lotion and soap maker, i selected a few fine carrier oils and added them to my beeswax base. i am so happy to offer a product that not only honors our local montana honeybees, but signifies how nature truly works.
thank you and i hope you enjoy Bee House Hives, it's the BALM!
