I love to stand by my open beehives on sunny summer days and just breathe in the fragrance – the combs smell like every beautiful flower and rain and sunshine and wind all rolled into one! The light natural fragrance of my honey soap reminds me of that.
As someone with super-sensitive and often reactive skin, I appreciate all the benefits of honey for my skin. Science tell us that honey has natural humectant properties, which means it attracts moisture from the air to your skin. Honey is full of natural antioxidants. Honey also has bacteria-killing properties. It also has been used for centuries (and still today!) for skin healing and as an anti-inflammatory. My soaps have not been tested by the FDA and I make no claims as to their medicinal value. (I have to say that now, Etsy has revised the rules.)
Honey is… good.
Remember, this is a handmade soap. Some bars are lighter, some are darker. Occasionally you will find specs of bee propolis embedded in the soap - consider that a free super-healthy bonus! I promise that every bar will be of the same, high quality you expect from Lee's Bees products.
