After the birth of my 3rd child, I was faced with issues that I had not experienced with my other 2 babies. Henry had a lot of issues with nutrition as well as with his respiratory tract. At the age of 6 months, our pediatrician suggested we put Henry on a nebulizer to help with his breathing. Although it helped him breathe much better, I was not crazy about him having all the medication in his little body at such a young age. I was talking about this in our mommy group and one of the moms introduced me to the world of natural products. I found that a lot of products we used in our home could be effecting Henry’s health, and that scared me. That is when I began using homemade cleaning products. We did not however switch to natural personal care products because at that time they were quite expensive. Fast forward more than 10 years ahead and we now have companies like Beecology who make those products affordable. Made with natural ingredients, including beeswax from their beekeeping business, the products from Beecology are perfect for my family.
All Natural Beauty Products With Beeswax
Amy and her husband David have 3 kids and they are a beekeeping family. Because Amy and David knew they did not want to make a million candles with their beeswax, they decided to put their efforts into beauty products. The Beecology product line includes skin and hair care products that after safe for the whole family to use. From their large variety of all natural beauty products with beeswax, Amy sent me:
- Foaming Hand Soap: in Peppermint , Lavender and Grapefruit and Lemongrass. What I love about these soaps is that your hands do not dry out, which can get painful if you wash as often as we do.
- Hand and Body Lotion: For those dry hands, my favorite is the Beecology lotion. It is paraben free and made with natural olive oil, honey, and Shea butter. I use it on hands as well as my heels because they get so dry in the summer .
- Lip Balm: The lip balms are simply amazing and I LOVE them. I get the worst dry and cracked lips because I lick my lips a lot. It is a habit I have had since I was a child and it can get quite painful. With the soothing beeswax and other natural ingredients like lemon and lavender in the Beecology lip balm, my lips are soft, supple and healthy.
Can you tell I love the products from Beecology?! Another big reason I love this company is how they give back with charitable works. The charity website for Beecology is SweetYear.org which was put in place to help with environmental and social causes.
Beecology gives back 10% of their net profits to SweetYear.org. In hopes of getting their customers involved in giving, you can visit the SweetYear.org webstie and choose the charity they want their purchase percentage to go to. I think that is really amazing because many companies would not give their customers that option. You can purchase the Beecology products from their website as well as specialty stores nationwide.
