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.

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.
