This is from a traditional and much loved recipe providing a long lasting solution to retaining the good looks and longevity of your wood. Using this cream will remind you of past times !
Turpentine and beeswax are a classic combination for bringing out the best in natural materials and wood will be left with a soft sheen and we add a hint of lavender too.
Apply with a soft cloth and rub in circular motion across the surface. This cream cleans too so the cloth will become discoloured. Leave to soak in and then buff with a fresh cloth.
It’s only necessary to use this cream every few months or if your wood is looking lack lustre and between times dust with a dampened cloth.

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)

Re-usable handmade beeswax food wraps. These wraps are all the buzz 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!

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!
