Have you ever heard of power animals or animal totems? Shamans, also known as healers, have known through the ages that power animals are spirit guides in animal form. When a power animal shows up it is communicating a message and helping you find peace and bliss on your life’s path. Lately the bumble bee has been popping up constantly for me, so when Medicine Mama’s Apothecary sent us some products to try I was not surprised to see even more bees.  The bumble bee symbolizes abundance, personal power, love and community. What a great message from the fantastic organic skin care line, Medicine Mama’s Apothecary.

Medicine Mama’s Apothecary features organic skin care products made from the highest quality medicinally active raw materials. They use ingredients from around the globe and their products are made with loving care in small batches at their boutique apothecary. Two of my favorites are the Sweet Bee Magic All in One Healing Skin Cream ($19.99) and the Sweet Bee Magic Wand ($12.99).

Medicine Mama All in One Secret Skin Cream

The Sweet Bee Magic All-in-One Enhanced Healing Cream is not really a cream, it’s more like a balm that moisturizes, revitalizes, and protects the skin. You can use this everywhere – face, hands, feet, and body. It has a healing compound called Melexylem™ that is an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory. This is a household multi-tasker for sure – check out everything it does:

Maintain healthy, radiant, youthful-looking skin
Moisturize dry, cracked or irritated skin
Heal rashes, burns, scars & intense skin irritation
Soothe cold sores and chapped lips
Reduce inflammation
Relieve sunburns & insect bites

This is a terrific facial moisturizer that doesn’t clog pores or make me break out. I also love it for cracked and peeling hands, and it’s great for soothing rashes and burns.

Ingredients include healing Melexylem™, purifying propolis, antimicrobial honey, nourishing royal jelly, revitalizing bee pollen, moisturizing extra virgin olive oil, protective beeswax. It is also free of dyes, fragrances, artificial preservatives, parabens, soy, etc.

Medicine Mama All in One Lip and Face Balm

For some transportable bee magic, the Sweet Bee Magic Wand ($12.99) is perfection. This is a Propolis & Honey Lip & Face Balm for Healing On the Go. It comes in a tube that is about twice the size of a regular chapstick. It’s still small enough to be purse-friendly and my lips absolutely love the healing hydration that the Sweet Bee Magic Wand provides. Here is what else it can be used for:

Moisturize skin daily
Heal chapped lips
Nourish skin overnight
Repair rashes, burns & scars
Soothe cold sores
Relieve cuts, scrapes & insect bites
Gloss eyelashes

Ingredients include healing Melexylem™, purifying propolis & honey blend, protective beeswax, nourishing extra virgin avocado oil, moisturizing extra virgin olive oil. Sweet Bee Magic is certified organic by the CCOF and is free of synthetic dyes, fragrances, preservatives, parabens, sulfates, soy and petroleum.

After using my Sweet Bee Magic products for several weeks, I have to say I believe in the magic of bees. Just use the Store Locator on the website to find Medicine Mama’s Apothecary products near you.  – Lisa

Medicine Mama’s Apothecary – Bee Magic Wand review

I am totally in love with the name of the company that I’m reviewing today: Medicine Mama’s Apothecary. It’s the greatest name! But even greater are the products that Medicine Mama has created including the sweet Bee Magic Wand that I’m introducing you to today.

Medicine Mama is a real woman named Donna Steinman. She wanted to get away from an industry that is loaded with chemicals and toxins so she turned to nature. Her answer was honey bees. Now personally I’m petrified of bees but she realized that this little insect created an ingredient that has healing properties. Honey bees gather raw materials from nature and blend the nectars, resins and pollens with their hormonal secretions in their mouths and bellies. They deposit this magical substance into the comb which then cures and alchemizes it. When the perfect amount of time has passed this golden balm is uncapped and delivered to nourish the Queen and keep the hive healthy and active.

Donna Steinman worked with honey, propolis, bee pollen, royal jelly and beeswax until she discovered a cream that could heal, soothe and moisturize better than anything she had ever tried. She called it “Sweet Blessed Bee Magic” and has grown her line from there.

Bee Magic Wand

I have the Bee Magic Wand ($12.95) and it came to me at the perfect time. I had just come home from the nail salon and had a battered and bruised finger. I had broken a nail way way down and my tech attempted to put on a fake nail. In the process she filed my skin and made it bleed. Plus there was glue under the nail making it hurt even more. I opened this up, learned that it treats rashes, burns and scars plus protects cuts, and got to work. I babied that nail using the Bee Magic Wand for 24 hours. Within that time it stopped hurting and I could no longer feel the pain. I was sold! Bee Magic Wand can be used anywhere you want too. It can be a lip balm as well as a face or body balm.

Here are the reasons you want Medicine Mama products

  • They make skin radiant and supple
  • They treat rashes, burns and scars
  • They protect cuts, scrapes and bites from infection
  • They soothe dry or irritated skin.

There are 4 main products. Bee Magic which is the retail version of Sweet Blessed Bee Magic, an all in one skin cream. Baby & Mama for use on baby’s delicate skin as well as on Mama’s belly both during and after pregnancy. Bee Magic Wand which is the wand version of Bee Magic. V Magic which helps moisturize and soothe intimate skin.

These can be found at a variety of retailers in Alaska, Arizona, California, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Texas and Washington  or online. Personally I’m going to stop into my local Whole Foods and ask them to start carrying the line since I want more.

Baby & Mama image from sweetbeemagic.com

I definitely need Baby & Mama for when I change my grandson’s diaper (over and over and over!!). I hate the smell of the diaper cream I have and Bee Magic has no fragrance. Plus it’s certified organic which is what my daughter-in-law always looks for when picking out products to use on him. My baby boy can have a soft unchafed tush while I have soft unchapped fingers. A perfect combination! Thank you Medicine Mama for soothing us from tips to toes. — Marcia
