Bee Hive Bar Soap is our signature bar soap at Bee Lovely Botanicals™. This all natural soap is chock full of good things from our bee hives, like propolis, honey, and beeswax, not to mention egg yolks, oatmeal, lanolin, and tea tree and lemongrass essential oils!
Honey is full of B vitamins (and “Bee Vitamins” 😉 )and acts as a humectant on your skin.
Propolis is a substance bees gather from tree and plant resins and use to seal and protect hives. It is anti-microbial and anti-fungal. Oatmeal acts as a mild exfoliator, while buttermilk ensures a very gentle cleansing. (In soap formulations, buttermilk and goat milk soap are nearly identical.) Pure lemongrass and tea tree oils are anti-septic and anti-fungal. Beeswax makes a hard, long-lasting bar of soap. Egg yolks are a natural source of lecithin, and add a creaminess to the lather. All of Bee Lovely Botanicals’™ bar soap contains hydrolyzed tussah silk fibers and honey, which yield vitamins and proteins that are beneficial to skin.
At Bee Lovely Botanicals™ we raise our bees naturally, treating with essential oils, plant sterols, and integrated pest management techniques. We use the beeswax, honey, and propolis from our own hives in our natural skin care products. We even use eggs from our own chickens in this bar soap!
Each bar is hand cut and weighs in at 4-6 ounces, is wrapped in linen paper with our antique inspired label, and shrink wrapped to preserve all the good smells just for you! Expect slight variations in color due to the variation in honey from season to season and the small batch production of natural soap.
