Announcement    ******MiniBee is taking a short break*******
****All orders will be sent the week of June 10th. I am so sorry for the inconvenience****

Welcome to MiniBee Beauty!! :)
It is a hobby gone WILD! I started making soaps and lotions for myself about 8 years ago. I have very sensitive skin and everything I bought over the counter irritated me. I was having so much fun creating new recipes and scents, that I decided to start selling my creations! I opened my online store (MiniBeeBeauty.com) in 2011, and started attending Art & Wine festivals. I have had tons of wonderful feedback. I am getting new customers everyday. I wanted to be able venture out of my hometown in California and see if I could share my wonderful creations with other people from around the world, and because of that I opened this Etsy shop. I hope you find something that you like!

For those of you that know me personally and/or live locally in San Carlos, Redwood City or Belmont, I can save you on shipping and deliver. We can also schedule a pick up location. Please use code "MINIBEELOCAL" at checkout.

Thank you for visiting and have a fabulous day!!!

I have some GREAT NEWS!!! MiniBee can now be found at Lavender Home and Garden in Half Moon Bay, California. Also during Half Moon Bay's pumpkin time (October) you can find MiniBee at the Ritz Carlton!

About

A hobby gone WILD!

I started making my own beauty products to help with my Eczema on my hands. I went on the internet and found numerous recipes. That is when my hobby took off in my own kitchen. So many things I could make so many ingredients and scents I could choose from. I had to try them all. Of course one person could not use that much lotion and soap in a lifetime, so I thought I would share my creations with all of you.

My 14 year old daughter, Samantha, decided that my name should be "MiniBee" and drew a fabulous logo. Mini for the Mini Cooper that I drive and Bee for the beeswax that was in my very first product. She is now away to college and everytime I look at my logo it makes me smile. :)

My hobby grew and when my son decided to move out I took over his room. (Sorry Christopher) It is now the MiniBee Beehive (aka laboratory).

I am also happy to report that my Eczema is gone and that is a big BONUS in my eyes.

    Summer Festival

  • Pescadero Art & Fun
    IDES Hall
    PESCADERO, CA

    Aug 17–18

    Welcome to the Pescadero Arts and Fun Festival, a quaint gathering of artists and artisans, locals and out-of-towners alike, showcasing their creativity and enjoying a down home, country good time. Founded in 1991 by a group of local artists seeking an outlet for the local community of talent, the Pescadero Arts and Fun Festival was born, and has grown to become the event of the year for locals and longtime visitors. Don’t be fooled however by the abundance of artists in our midst (though we do seem to have more than our fair share). PAFF has become far more than just a festival showcasing local talent; thanks in large part to the dedication and generosity of the people behind PAFF, it is also a major player in promoting its local youth and programs. Whether its granting funds to programs within the schools, or scholarships to local seniors, you will find the influence of PAFF in many nooks and corners of the community.

  • MOUNTAIN VIEW ART & WINE FESTIVAL
    Castro Street

    The vibrant, magnificent city of Mountain View has evolved in a big way over the last 48 years. A population boom. The arrival of Shoreline Amphitheater as a major concert venue. The amazing growth of Silicon Valley and Mountain View’s emergence as its epicenter. The transformation of a vibrant downtown district with restaurants, shops, cafes, bookstores and performing arts center. And, last but not least, the Art & Wine Festival’s rise to become one of America’s premier art festivals. And it’s that time of year: it’s Mountain View’s time to get festive and this year we celebrate #48!
