Life Elements

Healing Honey Stick

Bee Benefits

Sure, honey is good for you. But a beehive makes a lot more than honey, and all those other hive elements are as healthy for you as for the bees. Life Elements knows that, so they packed their healing honey skin care full of all-natural, bee-derived goodness.

Their balm combines raw, unfiltered honey, moisture-rich beeswax, bee
pollen, and even propolis—the resin that the bees gather as they brush against leaf buds or tree bark—which is rich in antibacterial agents. They add royal jelly, too—the nutrient-rich food bees feed to their offspring—for its amino acids, minerals, B-vitamins, and collagen.

Beekeepers Martha and Curt Van Inwegen harvest their buzzworthy ingredients from American-born and -bred bees. Olive oil, Vitamin E, shea butter, and essential oils round out their all-natural formula.

Roll some on chapped lips, dry hands, or rough heels. Or use it to calm minor cuts or burns. You can even apply it to pets’ paws, or use it on diaper rash.

Get the healthy benefits of the entire hive with a just a few swipes.

    @Wanda Hi Wanda, thank you for joining us - no, it is not sticky. It's a smooth salve that you use just like lotion. Great for your entire body.

    Hi! I have rosacea and my friend has eczema on her hands. Will this product help us?

    Thanks very much, Kathleen

    @Kathleen Hi Kathleen! We have received many testimonials on from many folks afflicted with both and they love it. The combination of the bee derived ingredients and the healing essential oils of goldenseal, lavender, calendula, bergamot and more is super effective on many rashes. Then you have the rich moisturizing benefits of shea butter, almond and olive oils. Give it a try, I promise you will love it.

    @Steve Hi Steve! We cannot make claims like that due to FDA regulations. It's a fine line between we have to walk. Once we make a claim, then we become a drug and have to go through all the FDA regulations. Sorry.

    @Martha I can say it does help soothe the symptoms, but definitely does not 'cure' the problem.

    Does it have a fragrance other than bees wax?

  • Martha
    Martha – Special Guest
    1/15/2016 9:59 AM

    @Barbara Hi Barbara! The scent is not bees wax, its more of a tea tree/eucalyptus scent. Because we use only natural essential oils, the scent dissipates quickly, so it won't clash with your personal scents.

    Can you use it on 'sensitive' areas ;-) I've seen similar things to help with rashes after sporting activities.

    1/15/2016 10:22 AM

    @Jo Hi Jo! Yes, we have many cyclists that use as a chamois cream before and after their ride. The benefits are that it's safe, it has natural antibacterial properties to help prevent saddle sores and because of it's consistency it lasts longer. You can also use it on a baby's rash, that's how gentle but effective it is. Thank you for asking!

    @robert Hi Robert! Yes, we get many testimonials on how amazing it is on rashes, including eczema. Simply apply it a couple of times a day in the affected area, massage in and let it do it's work. And don't worry - it won't clog your pores.

    @Monica Hi Monica! Because its a natural product, it does have an expiration date of 2 years. We recommend storing it along with your other body care items.

    Hi Martha! I would just like to add a testament about this product. Having received one in Sun Valley at RPI this fall, Tim used it up! It definitely sped up his healing of his saddle sore. We are hooked! Congrats on the Grommet. I'll be ordering more!!! THANK YOU!

    @KB Hi Kristin! We are offer both a 2 oz stick and half oz stick. We'll work on getting the smallest, lip balm size in the future. In the meantime, just click on the pull down menu to order the size you'd like.

    @KB Kristin @Martha The half oz size is 3-3/4" tall and 3/8" diameter. It is a nice purse or jacket pocket size. We have a lot of runners that keep it in their running jersey or jackets for blisters or cracked skin.

    @Sara Hi Sarah! Don't you just hate that nasty stuff? We have poison oak in California and can tell you that we have had our share of rashes! What we found is that the combination of the bee derived ingredients (honey, propolis) along with the tea tree, lavender and myrrh help numb the itch, and cool down the inflammation. The tea tree also acts as an antiseptic.

    We are huge fans of your Honey Healing Stick here at Mustard Creek Ranch! it soothes chapped working hands & elbows (lips too!), magically heals up not only human but horse & dog scrapes too and I keep one in the kitchen for that occasional burn.

    Love it ~ happy to know where to get more!

    thank you!

  • Martha

    @Rebecca Hi Rebecca! No, we do not have any menthol or eucalyptus in the formula. I'm assuming you have an allergic reaction to those. How are you with Tea Tree oil? Here is a complete list of our ingredients:

    Olive Oil; Beeswax; Almond Oil; Shea Butter; Goldenseal Leaf; EO blend of Tea Tree, Bergamot, Lavender, Frankincense and Myrrh; blend of Honey, Bee Pollen, Propolis and Royal Jelly; Caprylic/Capric/Stearic Glycerides (Vegetable Origin); Calendula Extract; Vitamin E

    @Martha Thanks for the quick reply! Yes I do have allergies to those ingredients. I don't know if I'm allergic to tea tree oil, however I'm going to order and hope for the best.

    Thanks!

    Martha, I just ordered the 2 oz stick. I cannot tell how excited I am to try this on my kids for every little nick, cut, scratch and rash!

    Best of luck with your launch, no doubt "Healing Honey Sticks" will be a giant hit! :-)

    @Martha They know to love the bees! No swatting, no running....a simple little shoo will do.

    Thrilled that there is no lemon oil or eucalyptus (allergies/sensitivities), will be put to great use in our house.

    Is the product safe to use on your face? Everday as moisturizer, under makeup? What about anti-aging?

  • Curt
    Curt
    1/15/2016 3:35 PM

    @Christine Hi Christine. The answer is yes! Because of the anti-bacterial nature of the bee-derived ingredients, the Healing Stick has non-comedogenic properties--which means that it helps prevent clogging of the pores (i.e. blackheads). Personally, we have been using the Healing Stick as a daily facial moisturizer for almost 2 years and it definitely has some wonderful properties. You'll want to rub it in good before applying makeup. Depending on the makeup you use, there shouldn't be any issues.

  • Martha

    @Curt Obviously loves our Healing Honey Stick ;) We have both been using as our daily morning and night moisturizer - nothing else. As for anti-aging? We can't make any claims, but as a 59 year old women, I am constantly getting compliments on my skin and asked what I use to keep it so young looking. Need I say more? :)

    In the video it mentions it's good for dog paws. Will this help their paws from being dry? My dog tends to lick her paws once in while, is this safe for dogs to ingest?

    @Cindy Hi Cindy! Poor puppy :( The Healing Honey Stick is good for all types of dry patches - on humans and our best friends. As I am not a vet, I can't properly answer your question about digestion, only to say that we use all natural ingredients, my daughter has 2 dogs and uses the stick on their paws daily. If they have a wound, they will lick it, but we have not had any issues to date. The puppy in the video is our neighbors and they use the stick on the paws without any issues as well.

    Hi everyone, At our women's cycling team CANYON//SRAM Racing we use the Healing Honey stick all the time. After the riders crash, have small injuries, minor cuts or road rash. They also often use the stick on their chamois area to prevent or treat saddle sores. Just a few other uses of the Healing Honey stick (and it's great for our planet's health). It's great!! Beth

    I have been having trouble with irritated skin under my eyes. I put a little bit on my fingertip and patted it on the under eye area. Not only did it sooth the irritation but it also smoothed the skin in that area! Surprise!

    @Jean Hi Jean! Whaaaat! That's so awesome, thank you so much for sharing. I personally love it as a facial, eye and neck cream and even use it to remove my eye makeup.
