Bee Mindful Skin Care®, of Smithfield, North Carolina, is new to The Handmade Market. Linda Della Rosa, head-beekeeper on her Johnston County mini-farm, is proud to have created an extensive line of natural skin care products made exclusively from high-quality oils and butters combined with wax and/or honey from her bees. Each product is handmade in small batches. Soaps are cold processed and colorant-free using custom molds. Lotions come with a specially mixed wildflower seed packet called Bee Forage Banquet. Linda is always ‘mindful‘ of the importance of honey bees to our world.

Working with our bees in the yard and planting more flowers and shrubs for them!
