Tips and tricks for natural body care
Everyone needs a product in their handbag that serves as an all-around cure-all. And I think I just found a new favorite.
Keep this balm handy for all sorts of skin woes.
Medicine Mama’s Sweet Bee Magic Wand is a travel-sized balm made with natural ingredients produced by honey bees, including purifying propolis, antimicrobial honey and protective beeswax.
The uses for this product seem almost endless. Need to treat your chapped lips? No problem. Do you have bothersome cuts and scrapes? Use this tube to keep them moisturized. It will also soothe insect bites, sunburns, cold sores, rashes, dry skin and almost anything else you can throw its way. I have been using it as a lip balm, to treat my cuticles, and to moisturize a scar that I now have from a mole-removal surgery.
Knowing that I’m not applying harmful chemicals to my skin only adds to my excitement over this product. In fact, the remaining organic ingredients (extra virgin olive oil and avocado oil) reassure me that this company is being responsible with my health by using natural, vitamin-packed ingredients. My only complaint with this product is that it goes on a little oilier than I would prefer. But its versatility more than makes up for a little excess oil.
Medicine Mama’s Apothecary created the all-in-one cream used in this balm, otherwise known as Sweet Blessed Bee Magic, after many late nights experimenting with the formula. The company is proud to offer products made using traditional artisanal methods.
