NB these are offered in a pack of 3, it is too complicated to let you choose the combination online. If you’d like different designs, choose a 3 pack in the size and one of the fabrics, then in the comments/instructions area on ordering please make it clear which designs you would like – is that clear as mud?
When we wear ours we will be inserting an additional filter layer sprayed with our Propolis Tincture https://beeinspiredcreams.buzz/product/propolis-tincture/

An effective face ream with propolis which soothes, heals and breaks the itch scratch cycle.
Propolis is the most amazing ingredient with anti viral, anti fungal and anti microbial and anti bacterial properties
We made this cream to meet the needs of people with many varied skin conditions including acne, eczema, psoriasis and hives.
Bees protect their hives with this sticky resinous material collected from the sap of trees. It has been used forever to aid in the healing of wounds which is why we were keen to make this cream.
Our own propolis tincture incorporated into our fragrance free Fab Face Cream formulation will transfer these qualities to our skin.
Prior to certification we trialed this for 24+ months – only on human friends – and their feedback was 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 it immensely helpful too.
Last summer, whilst tending our bees I was stung by both a bee+ 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? Also applied to treat a burn whilst making the BeeswaxWraps and the pain vanished SO quickly!

‘Editor’s Pick’ by the Green Parent Magazine Natural Beauty Bible 2018 and Highly Commended by Natural Health Magazine International Beauty Awards 2018 in the ‘sensitive skin range’
Our butchers love to use the Silky Hand Cream, fragrance free to protect their hands from the brine and cold wet conditions and it occurred to us that they need something richer which creates more of a barrier – so we developed this cream.
This cream is perfect for anyone who frequently washes their hands, uses harsh cleaners or wipes, or has particularly dry hands, as the rich combination of oils with the honey and beeswax not only moisturises deeply but the beeswax creates a lovely silky emollient cream. We have combined the oils with soothing and calming Calendula oil for those who have eczema and sensitive skin.
Like the Calendula Cream every ingredient is gentle and petrochemical free so perfect for young skin and we’re awaiting the certification for this to be also called our Happy Nappy Cream!
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.
This cream was trialed for more than 18 months – only on our human friends of course – and the responses have been incredibly positive.
Made to a traditional recipe combining our own beeswax with almond oil and a splash of vitamin E (wheat germ) – possibly the simplest and most effective lip balm there is. We have deliberately omitted fragrance or flavour as we believe that folk are tempted to lick their lips more, creating a vicious circle.
Our lip balm gently moisturises leaving a fine film of protective beeswax leaving lovely soft kissable lips, just as nature intended.
The balm in the stick is firmer than that in the tin making it very easy to use, even with gloves on.
Del Brown wrote a superb review about our lip balm – click on his name to read in full.
“….Not everyone wants a lip product with a fruity fragrance, so being fragrance free, both men and women feel comfortable using it. Unlike petroleum based lip balms that just form a barrier on the skin, the natural oils and bees wax in this product penetrate deep into the skin, hydrating dry lips and making them feel soft and comfortable.
This easy to use, fuss free lip balm is a winter essential and fully Del Brown Approved!”
2019 new packaging; a push up cardboard container (containing twice as much lip balm as previously).
9 ml stick – £ 6.50 (a softer lip balm is also available in a tin)
Award winning Happy Nappy Cream with soothing Calendula Oil has been developed for the most delicate of skin. This formulation is extra rich with beeswax to form a natural barrier combined with botanical oils and honey to gently moisturise – a perfect combination for bottoms!
Every ingredient is gentle and petrochemical free so perfect for young skin, with the addition of Calendula it is even more so.
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 Happy Nappy Cream formulation and the calming qualities will be transferred to your baby’s skin.
This cream has the same combination of ingredients as the award winning Soothing Calendula Cream, approved specifically for use on babies and infants,

This intensive and luxurious foot cream really hits the spot for weary feet with the combination of essential oils and the addition of 10% urea. It is absorbed easily, leaving your feet feeling supple and pampered. The honey and beeswax ensure that even the weariest feet are revitalised in seconds.
We were asked to make this by a podiatrist who had tried our Silky Hand Cream and realised its effect but she stressed that any good foot cream must have the urea content. It took a year to find a supplier and we were given the thumbs up – it really does work!
We chose the essential oil combination carefully and this cream has a gently floral aroma with a hint of the medicinal tea tree oil.
Jasmine tones the skin, increases elasticity and is often used to reduce scarring. Lavender has a soothing and calming effect and also relieves muscular and rheumatic aches and pains. Tea tree oil is a powerful stimulant is anti bacterial and anti fungal so perfect for our hard working feet. Urea not only softens all that hard skin but is also good for chilblains too.
