A Gift From the Bees

A very busy bee!

Most of the time when I am outdoors and I see a bee, I run! Many people are allergic to the sting of bees (I think I am, so therefore I run!) but have you ever thought about just how useful bees are to us? Not only do we get honey from bees, but we can also use the other magical substances bees produce to have healthier bodies and skin.

A Miracle for Skin

Have you ever heard of Sweet Blessed Bee Magic? Probably not….I hadn’t either. The name alone makes you think of a beautiful flowered meadow full of fuzzy black and yellow bees pollinating flowers. It’s a fantastic organic skin cream with immense therapeutic properties. It’s a golden colored, creamy substance that is just heaven to rub into skin. Not only does it moisturize even the dryest skin, it heals as well. It can be used for burns, cuts, rashes and skin irritations. The ingredients are like nature’s medicine for your skin. From their website: “Bee Magic is packed with naturally occurring bactericides, germicides and anti-inflammatory properties that actively begin cleaning, healing, protecting and soothing the affected area.” I couldn’t have said it any better myself. Sometimes I find I get a little redness or bumps on my skin…not sure from what, be it a heat rash or irritation from the elements. I rubbed some of the Bee Magic cream directly on my leg where I had the bumps. Within a few days, they were gone! I even used a few times when I had overindulged in the sun and had a bit of a sunburn. It soothed my skin so well! I can attest to the healing powers of this amazing product.

Bees give us many gifts.

Use it on everything!

Not only is it a healing balm, but it’s also a wonderful daily moisturizer for all skin types, even babies! I used it on my face as well as my body and the feel is just so luxurious. Your skin is reaping the benefits of so many beneficial compounds! What’s in Bee Magic? Not that much but what it does contain packs a healing punch: organic extra virgin olive oil, organic beeswax, organic honey, propolis, organic bee pollen and royal jelly. These are live, active, ingredients. They are not processed but are their purest form so you can get all the health benefits. Just what does each ingredient provide? Here’s just a sampling of what each ingredient can do:

Simple, pure ingredients make Bee Magic so effective.

Organic extra virgin olive oil- contains the antioxidant Vitamin E, promotes soft and supple skin
Organic beeswax- full of nutrients, locks in moisture, fosters cells and protects skin from damaging environmental factors
Organic honey- I’ve posted about the many rich benefits of honey. See the post here.
Propolis – cures burns, skin infections, and lesions effectively because of it’s anti-bacterial properties (scientific studies backs this up)
Organic bee pollen- reduces inflammation, soothes itching and moisturize dry skin
Royal jelly- contains B-complex vitamins, minerals, vitamins A, D, E, enzymes, 18 amino acids, and antibacterial and antibiotic compounds. Promotes youthful skin.

Are you convinced?

If you weren’t thinking Bee Magic was a miracle product before, are you now? The ingredients are so extremely therapeutic and in the making of this product, bees are not harmed at all. I believe they were put on the earth to do what they are doing and why shouldn’t we benefit from their gifts? However, if you’re vegan and only use vegan products, I wouldn’t recommend this one for you. But just to reassure you, the great folks behind Bee Magic lovingly handcraft their product giving thanks to the blessed bees for their “heavenly golden healing nectar.” Check out the The Medicine Mama for great insight into how Bee Magic is made.

So bottom line, how much is it?? Well, a 2 ounce jar is $16.99 (sold in stores) and a 4 ounce jar is offered online for $29.95 with free shipping.   I took to keeping a small container near my bed and whenever I felt a little dry skin or irritation, I’d spread some on. I literally loved this cream and I really think you would too. Give it a try. By the way, I am not even an affiliate of Bee Magic and will not receive any commission by promoting it. This is just a product I truly believe in, adore and feel as though anyone who used it will benefit in tremendous ways. See my video below!

    I’ve actually been using Bee Magic for a few months now and it’s seriously like magic in a jar. I’m devoured by mosquitoes in the warmer months & this eases the swollen, itchy stings. It also helps w/acne b/c of the antibacterial properties but doesn’t totally dry you out. I love it!

    I’m a beekeeper. Her products may be wonderful, but… Organic beeswax? Organic honey? Organic pollen. Not from the USA. Can’t be done… If she is selling it as an organic product, implying it is sustainable, she is being disingenuous. But, maybe she is sourcing those ingredients from overseas (not sustainable to ship them, but… read on anyway…).

    Bee products are a good example of the abuse of the Organic Label. (a) There is no organic standard for bee products in the USA yet, though there is a proposed one that can’t be met by anyone living in the USA (example, can you find 8000+ acres of unspoiled bee forage? That is the minimum range. Answer is “no”.), (b) there is a standard for producers overseas, but few objective observers trust those standards nor the ability for those regional inspection agencies to apply the standard with any honesty, and this is especially true for honey bees.

    So… I wish this producer well, but I cringe when I see “organic beeswax and honey” And especially “pollen”. Yeah, right. Doesn’t exist. Simply not true. She may be ignorant of these facts. I hope she is.

    Our bees are sustainably kept, with no application of chemicals in the slightest, not even the miriad of proposed acceptable “soft” chemicals that the proposed standard will allow. But, I would not even attempt to call my beeswax or honey or pollen “organic”. Why? Because I would be lying.

    Sorry to the rain on the parade.

    I agree, pretty much alllll Royal Jelly comes from China – there are only a couple of companies that actually have the Royal Jelly tested to make sure it is at full strength (it costs the company thousands of dollars to have this done).

    This cream is stating the same ingredients as Egyptian Magic – that company has been around for many years. (no I am not connected in any way to the company) but I have used their product with little results.

    I was at Whole Foods today and saw this cream Sweet Bee Magic – tried a little on my hand and it was just as oily as the Egyptian Magic – everyone will have to try it for them selves to see if they like it.

    I only wish SOMEONE would make a REAL lotion (cream) that can be used on the skin without loading it up with olive oil and actually put enough Royal Jelly, Pollen, Honey, real beezwax etc etc – in it to do some good on the skin.

    In reference to the previous comments, this is nothing like Egyptian Magic although the ingredients may be similar… I have used both and this is what I do know… Sweet Bee Magic works…it heals every skin issue, cut, scrape, bug bite I have ever put it on – with fast results. I use it more now as a facial cream – yes CREAM… It does NOT leave an oily residue after about 5 minutes of application – it completely soaks into your skin and does magic on wrinkles and fine lines and …. well I could go on an on… I have never used one product more for so many purposes in my whole life…it has replaced my other lotions, creams, balms and salves… and I think most importantly – it is handcrafted. I know Egyptian Magic is not. If you learn more about the product, you learn more about the maker – she goes by Medicine Mama’s Apothecary….and I think most would appreicate what this modern apothecarian is doing in the traditional method that seems lost these days with high out put manufacturing. To me that is pretty organic. I suggest you do more than dip your finger in and judge it unfairly… truly use it…and if you are like me – you will be hooked for life. Sincerely, Sweet Bee Magic loyal user, mother, and friend of the Bee.

    Thanks for your feedback, Leigh. I have not tried Egyptian Magic but I do know I truly love Sweet Bee Magic. Every time I have an irritation or cut I always use it and it does what it’s supposed to do.

    I’m partial to this bee-oriented lotion:

    I have never heard of Bee Magic before but it sounds like an amazing product. Only in the last year or so have I come to learn the wonderful benefits of bees. I too run at the sight of a bee. I have been taking Bee Propolis which is great for a natural source of vitamins and antioxidants. I also have tried Bee Pollen in the past because I was told it works to strengthen the immune system but I did not take it long enough to see real results. So moral of the story, I will definitely be looking at Bee Magic and purchasing it because it sounds great and I will be checking back in to give you my results. Thanks for turning me onto it.
