Natural Product Review: Medicine Mama's Apothecary All-In-One Balm

| 10/31/2012 5:00:00 PM

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. Browse their website to discover additional healing body care products, including their Sweet Bee Magic healing skin cream and lip balm.

It might be wise to check out a website before you send readers to it. Medicine Mama's is practically empty. I can find no info re. the ingredieents or uses for the various products, the links are almost all empty, and it looks like a very unprofessional start-up. YOU sound like you know more abouut at least one of her products than SHE does. I know that's not true, but perception is reality, particularly in this instant gratification world. Having been where she is, and having developed a couple of outstanding products, in 1999, I chose to hire (barter) a really good webmaster to nag me into getting my stories done, do a little of the comparitive research for me, get my info to him so he could spiff it up and make it look it's best, and building me a website that tells my story and that of my products, including a number of great testimonials. I did all this BEFORE I went beyond selling @ shows and events. I'm happy to say that, although I have ramped back my production (I had an opportunity -- and need -- to make a great deal more money doing something else I'm very good at), I STILL have loyal customers I serve with small batches, and of course, I make sure to provide for my family, for whom I developed my products in the first place.
