Beeswax in bath and body products is quickly taking the spotlight over similar skin protectants like petroleum jelly. Beeswax when introduced to bath and body products can thicken the consistency. For the skin, beeswax will actually lock moisture in, yet will still allow the skin to breathe. This barrier that beeswax leaves is long lasting too. Not only does this amazing wax keep us moisturized, it also will keep skin protected from the harsh environments. Beeswax also works as a skin softener, and nourishes our skin too.
Beeswax also has medicinal benefits to its use in body products as well. Beeswax has anti inflammatory, antiviral, and antibacterial properties. These three properties make beeswax very helpful for the healing of smaller wounds and injuries and can also be used for slight skin irritations too. Beeswax works as an antioxidant, and is a good source for vitamin A. This ingredient is great to use when making products specifically for dry and rough skin types because vitamin A promotes hydrating and softening, as well as stimulates cell repair.
Common products that can be made with the use of beeswax in their formulation are skin moisturizers, and body creams. In this type of body care, beeswax plays the role of an emollient (skin softening and/or soothing) and humectant (attracts water and helps to absorb it in the skin). These properties also remain true for soap making with beeswax.
Beeswax in Cosmetics:
Beeswax is a common ingredient for many of the cosmetics women use everyday like lip balms, lip sticks, lip gloss, eye shadow, eye liner, and even blush. In fact, using beeswax for lip care products will actually help with the healing of cracked, or dry lips, as well as the prevention of getting chapped lips especially during the colder months of the year.
Beeswax in Candles:
Candles that are made from beeswax provide a long, pure, and clean burn that does not produce a lot of smoke. In history and even today, beeswax candles are the traditional church candles of Roman Catholic masses and Orthodox churches.
Beeswax as a Polish/Conditioner/Wax:
The protective coating that beeswax naturally provides form the elements allows it to be used for polishing, conditioning, and wax purposes. Beeswax can be used in the making of several different kinds of protectants. Some of these items include- shoe polish, boot conditioner, furniture polish, surfboard wax, sealing wax, molding and modeling wax, and can even be used for marble stone repair.

FAQ'S AND IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
ITEM PACKAGING: This applies to bulk herbs and multiple purchases of the same item in a single order: **BULK HERB PURCHASES or single items- If you order more than "1" of the same bulk herb or item, the total amount will be combined into 1 bag whenever possible.** IF YOU WANT YOUR LIKE ITEMS IN SEPARATE BAGS, you will need to contact me when you place your order.
ORDER PROCESSING: Orders are processed during shop hours. Due to my multiple work schedules, I am not available to process last minute rush orders. Orders are processed in the order received. On many listings, I have added an option for expedited order handling for an additional $5.00. This option moves your order to the top of the list of orders to be processed and will allow for getting your order out the next business day if you order before 1:00 PM CST that day. If your order is large- greater than 15 items, expedited handling guarantees that your order will be shipped within 2 business days. Shipping is not available on Sundays. Please note that this is an expedited HANDLING service, not priority mail.
SHIPPING PRICES Are non-negotiable. I offer discounted shipping for multiple items purchased at the same time. I charge a nominal handling fee per item which covers labor, packaging materials, shipping envelopes or boxes, labels, and offsets business costs such as printer ink, listing fees, and sales fees. This will vary between $0.40- $2.00 PER ITEM depending on item size and cost.
RUsH ORDERS: Since this is a part-time business, we are typically unable to do same day rush orders, However, on many listings, I have added an option for expedited order handling for an additional $5.00.
SHIPPING INSURANCE: Although it is rare for orders not to make it to the intended recipient, I have had 2 orders this year fail to reach the customer. It is not a good feeling if it happens to you. I do NOT reimburse or replace items due to transit and delivery problems. PLEASE consider purchasing insurance. If it isn't coming up at checkout, I have created a listing for you to purchase it with your order. For a dollar or two, you can have protection for your order and peace of mind for you.
NO CANCELLATIONS ARE ACCEPTED. Returns or exchanges within 14 days of purchase upon return of merchandise. Custom orders are typically not eligible for returns unless an error was made by the shop. The customer is responsible for shipping costs.
SHIPPING ADDRESS: I use the shipping address that you have on file with Etsy. USPS confirms shipping addresses to US locations. I will only ship to the USPS verified address unless I have it in writing that you want me to ship to an alternative address. I am not responsible for delivery delays due to incorrect or incomplete addresses. If your order is returned to me as "undeliverable", you will have to pay for shipping again to get it resent.
HERB USAGE AND ADVICE: To comply with policy and for liability reasons, I do not offer advice on how to use herbs for medicinal or spiritual purposes, do not suggest herbs, and do not research herb uses. This information is readily available on the internet. I am happy to be a provider of quality supplies for your craft and use, but cannot advise.
DUE TO NEW FEES ON SHIPPING, INTERNATIONAL SALES WILL NO LONGER BE ACCEPTED AFTER JULY 10, 2018 UNLESS THE BUYER IS WILLING TO PAY A 5% SURCHARGE ON THE SHIPPING FEES. If you live outside the USA, please get your orders in before July 10 to allow for order processing before the July 15 cut off date. After July 10, all international orders will need to be completed through custom order requests. Declared Value: The declared value will be what you paid for the item. I do not mark items lower than the purchase price value. It is the responsibility of the recipient to be aware of the specific import restrictions for the country importing the products. If the products are refused or destroyed due to customs, Harmony Hills will not refund or replace the products.
INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: For orders over $50.00 that are mailed international first class service, I am now requiring a purchase of shipping insurance or for you to send me a written statement that you assume full financial liability for loss, damage, or non-delivery. The exception is if you have your package shipped international priority mail or express mail- both come with insurance. For first class mail, Shipsurance ranges from $1.50- $2.70.
BARGAIN SHOPPING: Our shop typically does not contain bargain items. My herbs and products are high quality and are priced accordingly. While many shops caution against ingesting their herbs, the vast majority of mine are food grade and most may be used in supplements or teas. Additionally, I take the time to sift herbs so that you don't receive a lot of sticks or powder if you order leaf and flowers. I do not know of any other vendor that takes the time to do this. My cost is higher to purchase quality herbs from quality bulk herb suppliers, so they are not “bargain priced”. Occasionally I get a shipment that does not meet my high standards and I sell these at cost as final sale items. I don't make a profit on these bargain items, but don't want to throw them away if there are others who are less picky than I am and can use them!
CLEARANCE ITEMS: See Sale section for sale and clearance items with rock-bottom pricing- These items are final sale.
WHOLESALE: I am a small retail shop and do not buy in quantities large enough to offer wholesale volumes and pricing.
HERB PRICING: I purchase my herbs in 1 pound packages. This is to make sure that you always get the freshest available and not old inventory. As such, my cost to purchase herbs is higher since I do not buy in large bulk quantities. My herb prices are based on what I pay for them and can vary with each order I place. Prices also vary according to season and availability. When a herb becomes scarce, it costs me much more to get it, and you will see a rise in prices (this was most noted with elderberries this past winter).
SPELL AND CONJURE WORK: I provide supplies- I don't provide spells or ritual advice. That is Your craft! :)
CUSTOM ORDERS: I am happy to do custom orders if I carry what is required. I will always provide a quote prior to starting your order. All custom orders must be prepaid before I commence work on them. There are no cancellations, returns, or refunds for custom orders.
PACKAGING: I pack items very securely and I do recycle clean packing materials and boxes when possible to be ecologically friendly and to save you shipping costs. I do not send packing slips unless you request one.
