Hemp & Hive Lotion Stick
Regular price $14.00
We made our new Hemp & Hive Lotion stick for all of our worker bee friends out there. The ones out in the cold, wind, rain and sun, but we think everyone should stow a stick in their coat pocket or bag!
We've combined our beautiful beeswax with healing propolis from our own beehives, along with hemp seed oil to produce an easy-to-apply lotion stick that can go everywhere: eyes, lips, face & and body. Handmade in small batches by us and poured into compostable cardboard tubes, because we all want to reduce plastics.
Hemp oil is super hydrating and reduces inflammation, and the propolis is filled with antioxidants and has loads of antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties. All the goodness is sealed in by the beeswax. Honeybees make propolis from pine tree resin, pollen and wax. They shellac the inside of the hive with it to prevent disease, and since ancient times humans have used its medicinal properties in wound care.
So this stick is perfect for anyone with stressed skin, particularly good for eczema. We were thrilled recently to hear that a dear friend used it to heal his young son's eczema outbreak. Over-the-counter stuff wasn't cutting it and they worried about using prescription medicines.
