Review

I like the aluminium packaging, it feels like a hardworking product at home in the garden! I quite enjoy the earthy, vegetal scent too. I love that the founder works closely and in a hands-on way with schools and youth to nurture sustainability. I also appreciate the aluminium packaging.

Review

You only need a tiny amount of this balm for it to cover your hands. It smells really amazing, strong at first but then it fades to a lovely sandalwood smell. It brought my tired hands back to being soft after only a couple of uses. I absolutely love Nina’s Bees approach to ethical honey harvesting. I love that the bees are able to build their own wax and no pesticides are used at all. I also love that the bees are able to determine their colonies. Ethical farming at its best!

Review

I love the earthy and ruggedly sweet scent of this product and how it melts into my skin when applied. The packaging is a beautiful artwork and the size is perfect. I love all the research and care they have taken into their beekeeping and use of bee products. I also really love that the founder personally goes to schools to educate kids on bees and help with projects and work experience!
