Honey Bee Holistics Review and Giveaway

About Honey Bee Holistics
[From her website HERE]
Honey Bee Holistics was started by Melissa Carr in a very small town called Concrete in the Cascade Mountian Range. Her company grew from the ground up starting in March 2007. Starting with soaps and herbs, she has now grown to produce many items including homeopathic tinctures, household cleaners, clay products and more!
Everything Melissa sells is handmade by her and is made with wild-harvested herbs or herbs that she grows on site. She never uses any chemicals or preservatives! Her goal is to provide you with fresh made Organic health, beauty and household products that are free of  harmful parabens, petroleum derivatives, and chemicals.

Hurley's Experience:
I was so excited when I received my samples for review from Melissa at Honey Bee Holistics. I was really interested how her all natural products would work out. I was sent Organic Calendula Lotion, Baby Bee Organic Diaper Oinment, and Organic Lavender Soap.

To be honest, I was most eager to try the Organic Lavender Soap first. That night, I so tense from a long day, and I was lucky enough to have the hubby watch the baby while I took a shower. The Lavender soap's label read "Helps to ease the pain of muscular aches...", just the sound of that was relaxing!
Following the shower using the Lavender Soap, I was noticeably more relaxed.
The Organic Lavender Soap is even safe for use on children and infants! I used it on my daughter, who just turned a year old, and she was so relaxed after each bath that she took a longer nap than usual.
I liked that the ingredients in this soap were all natural! Its always a relief to be able to use natural products with my family.

The next all natural product we used was the Organic Calendula Lotion. Normally the baby is the first to use it. Living in Alaska, the environment is very dry, leading to very dry skin. My daughter has this problem. We have to use lotion all the time and a lot of the store bought lotions don't absorb very well, or keep her skin moisturized. The Organic Calendula Lotion is a thick creamy lotion containing, again, all natural ingredients, such as: Organic Beeswax, Organic Calendula infused with Almond Oil, Organic Calendula Essential Oil, and Organic Rose Water.
When I use the lotion with "Turtle", as we call my daughter, it takes a little while to rub in but does absorb well. Her skin stays soft and moisturized all night and into the morning. We used the lotion with Turtle twice a day for about 2 weeks. Her dry skin never resurfaced in that time period!

The Baby Bee Diaper Ointment, another wonderful product from Honey Bee Holistics. Turtle is only 12 months old, so she's still in diapers and occasionally we come across some diaper rashes. They are either caused by an adverse reaction to something she ate, or a rash brought on by extended contact with a wet diaper [like overnights]. The Baby Bee Diaper Ointment treats both. The ointment is infused with healing Wild Harvested Comfrey leaf and Chickweed. Then Local Organic Honey is added for its anti-bacterial, skin regenerating properties and Organic Fair Trade Shea Butter & Local Beeswax with Propolis for its protecting action on the skin.
Not only does it treat her rashes but we use it with every diaper change to prevent rashes all together. It is cloth diaper safe, so I have no worrys about damaging her diapers!

All in all, wonderful products from a clearly motivated and hard working WAHM.
