Let miraculous, nature-perfect honey inspire you with its ancient health-boosting qualities and sweet pleasurable scent.

This Italian company blends natural honey with science to create a luxe anti-chapping and delicately aromatic cream. Think well-being in a tube.
Farmaesthetics Almond Blossom Organic Body Wash is made of honey absolute, the very last ingredient extracted from the honeycomb. This rich essential oil gives Almond Blossom a heavenly scent that is so addicting, your bath will no longer feel complete without it. You’ll crave it like catnip but also give Farmaesthics Midnight Honey Bath and Beauty Oil a try too. The oil holds in skin moisture while treating those persistent winter dry patches.
John Masters Organics Hibiscus and Honey Hair Restructuring Shampoo creates soft manageable locks with a light golden fragrance.

Honeymania Eau de Toilette is for the true honey aficionado. This dazzling fragrance is as sophisticated as any new designer scent. The honey is made from the nectar of wildflowers which makes it sun-sparkling with a floral scent that’s darling and 70’s bohemian retro.
Honey sitings are everywhere in the cosmetic world this fall because it is the perfect accompaniment to day-to-day beauty aids. It’s been around forever, it’s natural, smells amazing, and gives a contented feeling of well-being. Honey is refined and chic but it’s also grandmother- approved and not so bad in tea, either!
