Extract:

'It's so refreshing to be introduced to small brands that I might not otherwise have found, such as Bee Potion, from East Sussex, which is largely formulated with - you guessed it - beeswax and honey. This isn't the stuff you find in the supermarket aisles, though: the untreated medicinal honey can be used for everything from dryness and eczema to inflammation. My favourites are Bee Warm, an arnica-infused muscle balm (great post gym), and Bee Pure Face and Body Balm, which has a jelly-like texture that melts quickly into a balm (use it on lips, elbows, face and palms). The range is ethical and sustainable- perfect if your concerned about saving the bees.'

Jo Fairley & Sarah Stacey / Beauty Bible

Extract:

'This is a wonderful bee-based brand based close to Jo in Hastings, blurring the lines between beauty and wellbeing with a range of balms, oils and tinctures that are hand-made in East Sussex and based around bee products like propolis, beeswax, bee pollen and honey. Bee Potion was founded by teacher and beekeeper Katharine O’Brien, whose bees roam over the gorse-covered Hastings Firehills, an area of outstanding natural beauty, and whose bee products (importantly) aren’t heat-treated before she transforms them into quite lovely products.'

 Extract:

'From the vast, grassy cliffs of Hastings Country Park Nature Reserve, an Area of Outstanding Beauty known locally as The Firehills, the sea lies mirror-still, flecked by an early morning sun that seems to bathe everything in gold. Katharine O’Brien is one of several walkers enjoying the vistas. Today she’s led by her sprocker dog, Honey, who runs the winding paths ahead of her with all the gusto of a puppy, nose to the salty breeze.'

Extract

'Do you have a beauty regime? As I approach my 50th year, my beauty regime starts in the morning by looking in the bathroom mirror and thanking my life, that way I feel more beautiful with age! I have devised my own natural honey bee, two-step beauty ritual. First, I apply my honey, seaweed and aloe facial cleanser wash and, if my face is feeling particularly tired, I use it as a face pack too. I follow this with my face and body balm which is natural and nourishing both night and day. The two products together are all I need'

The Queen Bee / Beet, Pulse & Thyme 

Extract:

'I’ve never been this close to a bee hive or really understood just how incredible these insects truly are, and so this experience was almost a spiritual one for me. I also got to wear a beekeeper suit and had a go at hand spinning the honey from the honeycomb. What an utterly magical experience – thank you so much Katharine!'
