When I was homesteading, one of the things I wanted to learn to make was skincare products. But, it was one of the skills I did not have time to learn, as I was so busy with homeschooling and preserving food. I wanted all natural and organic skin care products that I felt good about using on me and around my family without all the chemicals and toxins. I refused to buy products from the store because of all the toxic ingredients and my sensitivity to them.
Recently, I found a company, Honey Love Essentials, started by 2 sisters, Jane Carrasco and Kate Moreen, who produce a line of luxury skincare products with exceptional purity. Jane was generous in giving me several samples to review. It takes a lot to convince me to try anything new on my sensitive and dry skin, but after checking with her about the purity of ingredients she used, I decided to try her products.
I have to say, my favorite is the Lavender Lotion Bar. I’ve had horribly dry skin on my hands for years and lotions just don’t help. Many of them just stayed greasy and would smear on my laptop or notebooks while I was working. The lotion bar goes on smooth and there’s no irritation or greasiness affecting my writing, either while typing or handwriting.
Jane and Kate focus on the healing properties of plants for their formulas, many of which reduce inflammation. It is now known that inflammation is behind a lot of health issues. The herbs they have chosen to use reduce the aging effects of inflammation and penetrate below the skin surface to reach the molecular level.
All Natural Skin Care Products from Honey Love Essentials
Lavender Lotion Bar
The Lavender Lotion Bar is made of African Shea Butter, coconut butter, coconut oil, beeswax, vitamin E and lavender essential oil. It has anti-inflammatory properties and protects and regenerates the skin. Smells great too!
Vitamin C & E Rejuvenating Youth Serum
The key ingredients of the Vitamin C&E Rejuvenating Youth Serum protect against pollutants and toxins that lead to premature aging of the skin. Vitamin C is well known for keeping skin healthy and resilient and vitamin E prevents formation of wrinkles by boosting collagen production.
Lavender Shea Butter Olive Oil Bastille Soap
Along with shea butter and olive oil, this soap also has Bentonite clay and Moroccan clay, both of which have numerous benefits for the skin by detoxing the skin and re-balancing dry and flaky conditions. Lavender essential oil repairs relaxes achy muscles, soothes eczema, is great for skin infections and eases bug bites and sunburns.
Apidae Rhassoul Young Mud
Bee pollen and Moroccan Red Clay are the key ingredients of Apidae Rhassoul Young Mud. Bee pollen soaks deep into the skin to moisturize it. The clay pulls blackheads and toxins to the surface and improves firmness and elasticity. It’s been used for over 1400 years back to ancient Rome and Egypt.
Toning Rosewater nourishes the skin by reducing wrinkles, acne and uneven skin tones. It restores moisture and maintains regular pH balance. Use it for a quick pick-me-up during the day to rejuvenate and stimulate the skin. Infused with organic rose petals and rose essential oil, Toning Rosewater improves complexion and hydrates skin.
Little Piggies Foot and Toenail Healing Balm
Little Piggies Foot and Toenail Healing Balm relieves discomfort and itching from the fungus that inflames the tissues around the feet and toes. Key ingredients are Black Walnut Hull, Comfrey and Tea Tree Oil, which are anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and antiseptic. This salve helps get rid of toenail fungus and prevents infection from returning.

The only negative I’ve experienced was the rosewater, which was irritating and made me sneeze. But I have never cared for rosewater of any brand. Now, my daughter thoroughly enjoyed using it. Rose water has been one of her favorite skin care products for years, but she’s never found one with as strong a scent as this one. She loves the ‘infused old rose’ scent and the clean feeling it leaves on her face. She doesn’t have to use as much as she did the other brands either, so this bottle will last a while.
Organic all natural skin care heals and repairs damaged skin and Honey Love Essentials uses pure ingredients in all of their products. I’ve enjoyed using my samples and especially finding a product that finally helps with my dry, sensitive skin.
