Oh Honey Honey

Neal's Yard Remedy Bee Lovely Body ButterWhat It Is: Cue the fanfare – cult favourite British brand Neal’s Yard Remedy has finally landed in Canada, with a retail store in Calgary and an online shop so you can nab amazing organic, all-natural bath and body care products. For those not in the know just yet, Neal’s Yard Remedy is one of the pioneering major natural beauty brands on the planet, having opened their first shop way back in the early 80s in London. Today, their products are revered around the globe for their chemical-free makeup, luxurious scents and textures, and lovely results.

One of their latest products is the divine Bee Lovely Body Butter. Having tried some for myself, I can tell you that it smells absolutely heavenly – citrusy and creamy and rich all at once. The body butter is infused with a luxe blend of organic shea and cocoa butter, as well as organic citrus and mandarin oils. Because the brand practices what it calls the ‘precautionary principle’, when in doubt about an ingredient’s safety they simply leave it out – meaning you can feel good about lathering up with a natural product that’s gentle enough for everyone in your family. Bonus points for creating containers that are made from recycled materials and can be recycled! The Bee Lovely Body Butter is part of a Bee Lovely collection, with proceeds from all products going to save the bees and ensure this essential part of our ecosystem continues to thrive.

Who It’s For: Your friend that loves natural care products but hasn’t tried Neal’s Yard Remedies yet. Your daughter, who’s suffering from too much sun and needs to nourish that skin. Your sister, to introduce her to this insider brand and help spread the word.

What It Costs: The Body Butter is $49 – other products in the Bee Lovely collection start at $13. There’s also a great gift set for $45.

Where It’s At: Neal’s Yard Remedies can be purchased online across Canada. If you’re lucky enough to live in Calgary, be sure to pop by their shop in Mission to get a feel for the stuff yourself.
