I was given the opportunity to review Beecology products... and instead of only introducing you to their products, you must hear the story behind it all.
The following is taken from the about us link on their website.
Beecology Natural Skincare and Hair Products
About six years ago I agreed to let a co-worker put a beehive on my family farm. I didn't plan to be responsible for it, but when life events kept him from tending to it, I became a beekeeper.
I found bee science and culture fascinating, and I soon began researching bees and attending workshops at The Ohio State University agricultural campus. Beyond enjoying the science, I found that tending the bees gave me time to reflect. It became a cathartic activity.
I also came to realize how connected the bees' world is to ours - any changes in our environment affect their environment as well. I began to think about the foods we eat, the chemicals we use, and the impact these factors have on bees and on us. That's when the idea hit me: I wanted to make natural skincare and hair products using honey, beeswax, and other ingredients that are good for us and our world.
This is the philosophy behind Beecology. Today my family and I produce a full line of natural products - lip balm, soap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and lotion - that help our customers keep their skin and hair healthy the natural way.
But being a good corporate citizen isn't just about using the Earth's products wisely. So in addition to drawing from the world to make our natural skincare and hair products, we give back through our charitable arm, SweetYear.org. We invite you to join us in making a difference.

Out of the products I received, my favorite was definitely the Buzz Balm beeswax lip balm. I usually never wear lipstick, but won't be caught without lip balm... I loved the scent, knowing that it was all-natural and it worked great without making my lips feel weighted down.
My kids got involved in all the reviewing action as well. They usually fawn over any package that is delivered to the house and want to smell soaps, lotions, etc... that arrive. They enjoyed the scents and for me, they reminded me of my summers spent outside.
