Satiny Smooth – Wood Conditioner
Preserving beauty is the name of this game. Our Little Bee Wood Conditioner is great for all your kitchen wooden ware. It helps seal and protect your wood utensils and boards to keep them looking like new.
Whether you have a beautiful walnut serving board, or an everyday wooden cutting board, they both need moisture and protection. To keep them from drying out, rub periodically with our Wood Conditioner to seal and protect them. The amazing glow of the natural wood will be enhanced by the beeswax in the conditioner. What an inexpensive and natural way to keep your wooden utensils and boards looking their best!
To use… simply rub a small amount of Little Bee Wood Conditioner onto your clean, dry wooden boards/utensils with your fingers or a clean rag and let soak in for a few minutes. Buff off any remaining conditioner with a clean cloth until the board has a smooth sheen. Reapply after every few washings or signs of dryness.
Made with only food grade mineral oil and 100% pure beeswax. Net Weight: 2oz.
Luscious Hand-poured – Lip Balm
Perfect size, perfect price. Little Bee Lip Balm is 100% natural, as well as paraben and petrolatum free. Made from only natural oils and pure beeswax. The beeswax base provides an effective barrier to the elements while retaining moisture.
Available Flavors: Lemon, Orange Vanilla, Peppermint Rosemary and “Pure” – which has no added flavor or fragrance! Net Weight: 0.25 oz.
Supple as Silk – Sea Salt Body Scrubs and Body Salve
First, let’s talk about our all-natural Sea Salt Body Scrubs, which are sweet and salty, and give your skin a delicious blend of exfoliation and moisture.
Almost yummy enough to eat. Almost. (But please don’t.) They were created with a blend of natural ingredients that will gently smooth away dryness and leave your skin with a beautiful healthy glow.
In your shower or bath, simply moisten your skin with warm water. Apply liberal amounts of Body Scrub to your driest skin areas and gently massage in a circular motion. (Better yet, recruit someone to do that for you?). Rinse completely and immediately discover how soft and silky smooth your skin has become!
Choose from Eucalyptus, Honey & Lemon, or our favorite…Lavender Honey. The gentle fragrances will melt your stresses away.
And next, we’ll tell you all about our natural beeswax Body Salves, which are a no-brainer for anyone with dry, chafed or otherwise damaged skin.
Our Little Bee Body Salve was developed to provide natural moisture to any and all of your dry skin areas including hands, elbows, knees, and feet. (Reminds us of the cute little song “head, shoulders, knees and toes…) And hey, our body salve is perfectly good for those areas too! Our formula contains a blend of natural oils and pure beeswax that will completely soothe and condition your skin. No need to add water.
We’ve created three blends to please all senses:
Chill Body Salve. Our “coolest” blend has subtle notes of peppermint, orange, lavender, and patchouli. Just breathe it in and chill out as you moisturize.
Soothe Body Salve. A local favorite, this blend contains Atlas Cedar, Juniper, Ylang Ylang, and Vanilla. Not too masculine and not too feminine. It’s just right.
Naked Body Salve. The name says it all. There is no added fragrance in this blend, and it will nourish your skin without leaving a lingering scent, so your own natural scent will come through.
Delightful and Subtle Solid Perfumes
We at Little Bee are in love with light, natural fragrances, so we knew that we wanted to develop our solid perfume scents to be subtle, not overpowering, memorable yet not commonplace and overdone.
Our solid perfumes are handmade, by us, and each jar is carefully attended to from start to finish. What you receive is a hand-crafted, all-natural product containing high quality ingredients.
We’ve crafted 4 subtle and unique solid perfume scents that have major appeal and will get heads turning in your direction. Our scents contain a diverse blend of floral, citrus, and earthy notes. A scent for everyone!
- Sweet Summer Rain – Our sweetest scent. Like walking through a field of dewey mountain clover.
- Dandelion Sun – Crisp floral scent reminiscent of an early spring day with notes of Lilac and Fresh Cut Grass.
- Bella Vista – A blend of Wildflowers with hints of Ylang-Ylang and Cedarwood
- Devil’s Side – Feminine yet edgy. Bergamot and Vanilla balanced with Patchouli and Sandalwood
Our solid perfumes are built on a moisturizing base of jojoba oil, pure beeswax, and our proprietary blend of essential fragrance oils. Nothing synthetic about these little half-ounce beauties. You will feel confident that only the cleanest natural ingredients are coming in contact with your skin. For best results, simply apply to your pulse points as often as you wish! We recommend reapplying a few times throughout the day, especially in warmer temperatures.
Heavenly, Local & All-Natural Honey
Little Bee Honey comes to you straight from the comb to the jar. Our honey is extracted by hand, never heated, and only gently strained to remove any beeswax from the uncapping process. It retains all the bee pollen normally lost during commercial scale extraction.
We have two sizes to choose from and all come in our wide-mouth glass jars for easy spooning and spreading.
12-oz jar – If you’re sweet enough, this might be the size you’re looking for.
24-oz jar – perfect for those who need mega all-natural sweetness!
Bonus Size: Read below to learn about our mini honey jars nestled in our newest honey gift tower! 3 amazing products in one sweet little package.
Caution: Do not feed honey to infants under one year of age.
Note: All pure honey may crystallize or granulate. It has not gone bad. To liquefy, loosen the cap and place jar in hand-hot water up to the level of the honey. Let stand until liquefied, replacing hot water as needed.
Elegant Ambiance – Hand-Rolled Beeswax Candles
So many choices, we had to create our Specialty Candle Shop! (Once we started rolling, it was hard to stop at just one size!)
No other material burns like 100% pure beeswax – it’s clean, it’s luxurious, and the light is soft and romantic. Our Hand Rolled Beeswax Candles feature a distinctive honeycomb embossed texture. As they burn, the layers of beeswax become translucent creating a soft, romantic glow and give off a light, sweet honey scent without the addition of any artificial fragrance.
- Approximate burn times vary by candle
- Wick Material: 100% Cotton Fiber (No Lead, Zinc, or Additives)
Because beeswax is an all natural material, slight color variations are possible and the candle color could range from cream to golden yellow.
We have sizes ranging from our tiny 2” votive, which does not need a holder, all the way to our “Big Boy” triple wick 6” x 5” pillar candle with an approximate burn time of over 45 hours! That’s a lot of ambiance.
