Are your products safe for my family?
Yes - we use ingredients just like those of lotions, balms, and skin creams. As such, you can feel comfortable using our products and getting them on your skin (it might even feel great!)
Why don't you use mineral oil?
Many products used on wood (like cutting board conditioner) contain mineral oil. However, mineral oil is actually derived from petroleum and we didn't feel great about that. We tested a number of options and decided to use fractionated coconut oil instead. This product is often used in cosmetics so it is safe for your skin. It does not go rancid on your wood over time, so you don't have to worry about using it on surfaces that you will use to prepare food.
Why is the conditioner/polish hard?
Because we use all-natural beeswax in our products, they take on a fairly hard consistency. This is by design. It helps you use less of the product and still get great results. You can warm up the conditioner/polish by rubbing on it or setting it in a warm place before use. When we make our conditioners and polishes softer, we ended up using so much that the tin doesn't last as long. This amount is not necessary for good results.
We ship all of our items for FREE! We just feel that this is easier for our customers and helps avoid complicated shipping questions and calculations.
All products are shipping using USPS first class mail. If you are in a rush, please contact us to ask about paying for priority shipping.

We do not accept returns or exchanges. The only exception is if we send you the wrong product! We'll replace it free of charge :)
We ship our items quickly, so cancellations have to be done immediately. Once your order is shipped, we can no longer cancel.
We respect your privacy. We do not use your contact information for any spam, junk mail, etc. Nor do we ever share your contact information. We occasionally share reviews that make us happy on our social media, but we always remove any identifying information.
The Happy Hive
Good for us, Good for the World
Our product line began when we started experimenting with beeswax from our own beehives on our homestead here in Vermont. We quickkly learned that beeswax was a powerful tool for conditioning wood, leather, and cast iron. We formulated our products with all-natural ingredients so our customers would feel good about using them.
As time went on, demand for our products exceeded the beeswax we could produce at home so we forged new partnerships with beekeepers across the US. Today, we source our beeswax from responsible beekeepers who do not use chemicals in their hives or in the process of rendering their wax.
We combine beeswax with other high-quality, natural ingredients to create effective products that are just as good for your skin as they are for the home items on which you apply them (no need to worry!).
