Propolis is the most amazing ingredient.
Bees protect their hives with this sticky resinous material collected from the sap of trees as it is anti bacterial, anti fungal and anti viral. It has been used forever to aid in the healing of wounds which is why we just had to make this cream.
Our own propolis tincture incorporated into our fragrance free cream formulation will transfer these qualities to our skin.
We have trialled this cream for more than 24 months – only on our human friends – and the responses have been incredibly positive.
People with psoriasis, itchy skin and eczema have reported real and lasting benefits and are now repeat customers.
Young people with acne and psoriasis have found the cream immensely helpful too.
Last summer, whilst tending our bees I was stung by a bee as well as some nettles. I always react badly to both. So, practising what I preach, I applied this cream and had not one minute’s reaction from either sting – how exciting is that!

‘Highly Commended’ by Natural Health Magazine International Beauty Awards 2018 in the sensitive skincare range and awarded GOLD from the JaneyLoves2017 Awards in the Mother and Baby Category.
Every ingredient is gentle and petrochemical free so perfect for young skin, with the addition of Calendula it is extra soothing.
Calendula, the marigold flower, has been used for generations and is known to be beneficial for treating any skin inflammation including chronic conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, rosacea acne and any type of dermatitis.
We have soaked the almond oil with marigold petals to infuse the goodness into the oil and made our light fragrance free body cream formulation and the calming qualities will be transferred to our skin.
We have young children in mind and those who need to liberally apply the cream to the whole body so will be presenting this in a 150ml pump.
This cream was trialed for more than 18 months – only on our human friends of course – and the responses have been incredibly positive.
We offer 2 label designs –
with calendula coloured background and our non baby carrying bee for the more adult customers or
with a pale blue background and our bee ( a stork incognito) carrying a baby – if you would like this label will you please specify the blue label in notes/instructions on finalising your order?
Re-usable handmade beeswax food wraps. These wraps are all the buzz in New Zealand and Australia for wrapping food as they keep food fresh + moist with no need for clingfilm, plastic bags or boxes nor aluminium foil
Following the suggestion of a local crafter who’d just returned from the Antipodes we just had to introduce these to our ‘hive products’ range.
Designed to wrap sandwiches, cover any food or leftovers, with the exception of raw meat or fish. Either wrap the food or cover containers with these flexible cloths. Use the warmth of your hands to seal the wrap. Beeswax does not absorb smells nor bacteria which is why these are so perfect!
They are reuseable, just wash in cool or cold water with a little mild detergent and air dry
When your wrap looks worn out simply place on a piece of baking parchment in a cool oven (110 0c) for a few minutes to refresh. Use and re-use – save the planet 1 wrap at a time!
Using the beeswax from Keith’s bees in the Surbiton area, his sister Alison is making them for us as well as us at ‘head hive’! Whilst we were planning the making of these Alison and her family had come to the conclusion, as so many of us have, that we must reduce our consumption and thoughtless use of plastic. Robin’s mother used wax cloth in the kitchen, but I didn’t find it until clearing her kitchen after she passed away and couldn’t work out what it was, that was over 35 years ago and now we know!
Made from 100% cotton and pure local beeswax – nothing else
