Beeswax Balm – New Product

I am pleased to announce the introduction of a long-awaited new product to my range – Beeswax Balm.

Eight years of enjoying making, using and selling my reusable beeswax food wraps has demonstrated the magic of beeswax beyond my expectations. In a somewhat natural progression, and at the continued request of swimming friends, I created and began using a Beeswax Balm comprised of Sunflower Oil, Coconut Oil and Beeswax harvested locally by Beck’s Honey Drysdale.

Samples were provided to family and friends and we all fell in love with this multi-purpose balm. The swimmers loved the chlorine and wetsuit protection; the parents loved the healing and barrier protection for nappy areas and dribbly chins; my daughters and I experienced welcome relief from the itch of summer insect bites and long-lasting face and body moisturisation; my husband enjoyed the restorative cuticle massages after his long shifts at work.

Beeswax Balm is not a new creation – it is a tried and true remedy that has been used throughout the centuries. However, in our current lifestyle it can be difficult to source such simple, pure products. I am particularly honoured to be creating this beeswax balm using the beeswax obtained from local apiarists Lawrie and Callum Beck of Beck’s Honey Drysdale. Lawrie and Callum are a grandfather/grandson team who take care of our local bees and in turn, our local environment. I have had the pleasure of using their responsibly harvested and purely filtered local beeswax for my wraps over the years. In making this Balm I finally feel as though I am showcasing the true magic of this incredible natural product.

Beck’s Honey is also available at local markets, some selected retailers and straight from the farm. You can contact them at: –
