Bees are quite popular in my house, mostly on account of them making honey for a certain Bear of Very Little Brain. Bees, honey, and beehives are all very exciting and hardly ever escape notice. My ears naturally perked up when I first hear about Beessentials.
You see, the world of bees is integrally and vitally connected to ours. Mankind’s actions that affect the environment naturally affect the bees’ environment. Seemingly trivial matters like the foods we choose to eat and the chemicals we choose to use in our homes affect the well-being of bees, on whom we rely for the pollination of the foods we eat and the crops we grow to feed the animals we nurture for sustenance.
Realizing this, Beessentials set out to create products enriched by honey and beeswax as well as by ingredients that are good for us, good for the world, and good for the bees. From their bee-loved Lemon Lavender Lip Balm to soap to hair care to body wash and lotions, Beessentials crafts a full line of essential products that enrich and enhance the body while benefitting the natural world. All products are made in the USA on the same Ohio farm where it all began in 2010.
And did you know, that when used in creams, lotions or lip balms, vitamin-rich beeswax protectively coats the skin? Also, its antibacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory qualities promote healing and reduce infection risk. Beeswax-based lip balms prevent chapping and dryness more effectively than other ingredients. And nature’s “liquid gold,” honey provides myriad health benefits when added to beauty products such as lip balm. It has been known for centuries to be an antibacterial and anti-fungal agent. Honey can be used as a treatment for wounds and burns when applied topically, which makes it an excellent treatment for chapped lips.
One of their most loved products in their Peppermint and Tea Tree Oil Shampoo. I love that it is paraben and sulfate free which is a must to keep my smooth and frizz free. It smells great too with both peppermint and tea tree oil. What a great, refreshing combination.
It doesn’t take a lot of brains (as a certain Bear can tell you) to see that there is a lot to love about bees and the things they make. And no one does a better job of highlighting this than Beessentials.
