Katie at KitchenStewardship:

My husband sometimes calls himself “malady man.” He’s had weird, unexplained maladies that no doctor can figure out rather too often. Who knows if they’ll all turn out to be different manifestations of a gluten sensitivity or something else we discover as we go grain-free for a spell! One of them was finally pegged as eczema, and I’ve been making him use my Hard Lotion from MadeOnon his cracked hands, when he remembers (men!). It makes headway, for sure!

Tsh at SimpleMom:

My favorite product she sent me, though, is the Hair Butter (sweetly named Second Life). Oh, the hair butter. You know how I only wash my hair with baking soda. Well, I think I’ve just replaced my apple cider vinegar rinse with a few dabs of the Hair Butter (with ingredients shea butter, coconut oil, beeswax, and orange essential oil). My hair looks amazing with this stuff, if I say so myself. And I love the scent.

Stephanie from Keeper of the Home:

I've struggled with dry, itchy and painful eczema on my hands for a long time. Some things have made a big difference (like cod liver oil, eating less sugar, keeping my stress down and my sleep up, wearing gloves, etc.).

Other things have never really made much of a difference, including the zilllion types of lotion that I have tried over the years. We tried almost everything and though some lotions helped a little, none of them really gave the relief that I needed. Until I tried MadeOn Hard Lotion bars.

Jessica from Life As Mom:

I love it that this lotion comes in bar  form because I can rub the bar on just the backs of my hands, not the palms, and avoid that sticky feeling I get from lotion. And that they are free of chemicals makes them all the more wonderful and convenient to use.

Jennifer in CA:

"My hair is thick, wavy, and tends to frizz, and seems to absorb all hair products and render them practically useless. The hair butter is all I need to keep it looking shiny with natural waves. I also use it as hand moisturizer in a pinch."

Marissa in Western Australia:

I have eczema on middle fingers of both hands. Your hard lotion relieved all symptoms - voila!

Julie in CA:

"I use your products on my African American twins. I use the Beesilk Jr on baby cheeks that are chapped from drool. It works beautifully. I think if I used it more regularly, it would be perfect. I love the Second Life hair butter for African American hair. Baby girl has course hair and baby boy has softer curls. It works on both."

Cari in IA:

"I have severe, chronic dyshidrosis on both foot bottoms. I use the hard lotion and it helps keep the large pieces of dead skin from falling off, almost like a glue. Not a cure for my severe diseased skin, but at this point, I'm learning how to cope."

I used the DIY kit to make sunscreen after my last order from you. We LOVE it! My husband uses it every day he works outside. Neither of us has gotten burned this year! And it worked wonders on a rash I had on my hand. Thanks for offering us wonderful products.

Beesilk Helps Diabetic Feet

 

Honey (my husband) is a dumptruck driver who wears hot, heavy workboots for 10 to 12 hours each day, 5 days a week. He is also diabetic and, as we know, must take extra care not to injure his feet.   You sent a sample of Bee Silk for him and he agreed to try it.  He used the Bee Silk on his feet after showering, then put on clean white socks and left them on all night. I encouraged him to reapply it in the morning before going to work, but I don't know if he did that every day.  After only a week, the bottoms of his feet, which had been dry and cracked (not good for a diabetic), were soft and healthy-looking. No more cracks or ways for bacteria to get in and cause infection!   He has not tried the Au Chocolat, but I think I will try that on my legs!  I'm going to order more Bee Silk, though, for sure!! Thank you again for your generosity!!

I just made a batch of sunscreen, one lip balm, and some bug-off bars... it was crazy easy! Thanks for such a good kit and great recipes. I think I'm going to be writing about it on my blog and I'll definitely be using this as an activity at a diy wedding shower I'm throwing in a few months. Going to order the gift giving e-book right now!

I told my whole connect group about you this morning. Well also about my husband's nasty heel that was cleaned up by the lotion bar and my daughter's eczema on her hands.

My friend gave me a small pouch of your product for my birthday and I

LOVE it!! Thank you for your inspiration and wonderful commitment to

wholesome goodness for our families and yours and for sharing the wealth

of your wisdom! Just ordered the DIY kit and can't wait to try it with

the kiddos and am thinking of a christmas gift making party with your

guidance too.  So excited!  Can't wait to stay tuned for all your success

and great ideas and hoping the coffee soap comes in soon as I am a big

garlic fan and my hubby and kiddos aren't thrilled with the leftovers on

my hands! :)

 

Thank you again,

Your loyal customer,

Laura

Jessica from Delicious Obsessions:

My feet are getting better! I think the key for me is that I need to pumice my feet every day and use the bar right after. I am doing it at night and putting the bar on and then putting socks over that. I think because I wear sandals and go barefoot so much, my feet get so dry and cracked. I wish I lived on a beach! When I was in AL last month visiting my sister, we spent a few days at the beach and my feet never looked so good! As soon as I got back home, they reverted back to their dry, callously, cracked selves!! To get truly healthy feet, I need to actually take the time to take care of them. :)

I use the Beesilk Jr for my 7 month old baby - it works wonders. It goes on very smoothly for a baby and I don't have to worry about any chemicals!
