Honey Crate Reveal – July 2017

Honey Crate Reveal – July 2017

This month’s Honey Crate is focusing on Skin Care.

Though a tasty treat, honey has long been known for it’s medicinal qualities. Similarly, other products from the hive such as beeswax and propolis have been found to have similar characteristics. We wanted to explore some fabulous bee-derived products for your skin as we get into the hottest part of the year. We hope you enjoy this Honey Crate!

As with all skin products, if you have any doubt about allergic reactions, consult a doctor before use. If you do decide to use any products on your skin, try them on a small patch to evaluate your sensitivity before you cover an entire area. Always be safe!


This Month’s Featured Recipe

We are really enjoying these Minted Icebox Pickles from our Food Curator, Rachel. They are wonderful on their own, but would also taste great on burgers, sandwiches, and salads.
