    My wife and I have used thethe skin care, lip balm and honey for over 10 years. The difference over commercial products cant be overstated. We work in healthcare . We have no issues with our lips and hands/arms after wearing masks and using alcohol on for 8-12 hours a day . Highly recommended

      Thanks Joe! It’s always good to see you!

    I visited your stall at Findlay Market 8 years ago and fell in love with your hand salves and chapsticks then. I’ve been a loyal customer since! Order up a new set every year and top up my stock every time I visit Cincinnati. It’s the only salve that has worked for my very dry skin. I’ve also gifted it for family members and they’ve loved the salves as well!

    I’ve used this salve (several scent options) since 2019 when we visited your stand at Findlay Market. It is the only product that for me keeps away painful cracks on fingertips during winter months. I used before a galore of hand creams and dipped my fingertips in vaseline. The latter helped with healing, but your salve is the only hand care product that seems to prevent those cracks before they happen. I also do a lot of gardening. Even with gloves, it is not possible to keep your hands damage-free if you really get into garden work. Again, your salve is the best product to heal that type of damage. Not the least, I also appreciate the fact that it is made from natural ingredients, without potentially harmful chemicals. Thank you for a great product!

    • Sam Gordon

      Thank you! I’m so glad you like it.

    I absolutely love this hand salve! I am a flight attendant and the soap we use literally makes all of my fingertips crack. A friend sent this to me as a gift and I had it in my overnight bag. I can’t believe the difference in just a day. I applied it at night before I went to bed and literally dipped my fingers in it. By morning I was sold. I applied it again before work very generously and after a day of hand washing…a LOT…my fingers no longer hurt and are healing. Thank you for a wonderful product. I will be placing an order soon. 😊

    • Sam Gordon

      Thanks for your feedback. I love hearing how it works for people, I’m so glad it helped you!

    Hand salves are legit!! I used to have very bad hands, nails, and cuticles but, using the hand salves has really helped. Complete 180 – I have proper nails now! I recommend lavender and sandalwood. Thank you 🙂

  6. Megan

    We visited Cincinnati recently and wandering through Findlay market I stopped to smell the hand salves. I bought some for myself and my co-workers. I have dry skin in the winter and my finger tips crack and it’s very painful. I was shocked to find that the had salve alleviates pain when I put it on areas that are cracked! I will be ordering more! What a wonderful product. I especially love Butter Me Up, HandyMan, and Love and Light!

    • Sam Gordon

      Hi Megan. It takes me awhile to realize someone has left a comment. Thanks so much for your kind words! I’m really glad you like the hand salves.

    I absolutely love the hand salves! I also use this product on my face and love how it makes my skin look and feel!

    • Sam Gordon

      Hi Carly. Thanks for the kind words. I’m glad you like the hand salve!


  8. Carly Reis

    I have been using the lip balms (which are AMAZING!) for a while now and just bought a hand salve. Absolutely loving it! I really enjoy seeing you guys at Findlay as well….keep doing what your doing!

  9. Amanda

    I came across the Bee Haven stand while at Findlay Market with my little girl this past Saturday. Just wanted to say we enjoy your Hand Salves and the Peppy Feet Salve.

    • Sam Gordon

      Thanks for the kind words. So glad you like the Hand Salves!


  10. Ben Pingilley

    I use hand slave for my fingers as an after care product from rock climbing. I had run out, was in Cincy and stumbled upon this product. I’m sure it’s great for dry skin issues but it should not be used by climbers. Rather than healing my skin, it softened my finger tips and I quickly shredded through two layers of callused skin. Exposing nice fresh pink skin. I can’t climb until these heal.

    • Sam Gordon

      Yikes! Sorry this caused you some climbing problems. Hope you can get back to it soon. Thanks for the feedback.


  11. Gladwin Gilman

    I happened to pass this store when I was visiting over Thanksgiving. I absolutely love the hand salves. I use them on my hands and for my face. I have very dry skin in the winter and the salve acts as a barrier to the cold PLUS its all natural so I don’t have any allergic reactions. My skin has never looked or felt so good! I would advise testing the product in person before using it on your face as it is so heavy and may have a different effect. Thank you for creating such a product. I will order from now on.

    • Sam Gordon

      Thanks for the great feedback!


  12. Patty

    LOVE this salve. I have never seen anything like it! The Bee Balm scent smells like heaven-I am totally addicted. My fingernails love it, too. They look so much better after using this only a couple weeks. Thank you!!!! Thank you!!! Thank you!!!!

    • Sam Gordon

      I’m so glad you love the hand salve. Bee Balm is my favorite!

    I was visiting family in Cincinnati and they had Panacea hand salve on the bedside table. I used it on my cracked thumb and fell in love with the smell and smoothness. I placed an order right away and was amazed at the speedy service. I had it shipped to my home in MO and plan to order more.

  14. Ckim (verified owner)

    Amazing product! I usually don’t like lotions or creams, but this product smells good, is local, and natural. I love the option of small tubs, so I can try different scents. I should’ve bought more at the market place, while visiting Cincinnati. Just bought some more online! It would make a great gift for the holidays!

  15. Lauren

    I bought the smallest jar at the Findlay market while vistinig Cincinnati and was blown away. I suffer from really bad eczema on my hands and this worked wonders! My hands have not looked this good since I don’t know when! In love with the product and will definitely be ordering online for years to come. Thanks for making such a great product!

  16. Sharonne Williams

    I love love love the hand salves! My favorite is Butter Me Up. I don’t get home much to purchase in person, but when I am in Cincinnati, I definitely make a point to stop buy. I am ordering online today because I don’t have plans to go home any time soon and my jar of Butter Me Up is almost GONE!!! OH NO!!! I can’t let that happen. I will also be ordering bug repellant. We have monster mosquitoes in Texas, even earlier this year than normal and I want to make sure to be protected.

  17. Dawnita (verified owner)

    While shopping @ Findlay Market, I stumbled upon these amazing products. I’m a healthcare worker who constantly washes my hands and suffers from dry, cracked skin. The hand salve (Sandalwood Vanilla) has been such a blessing! After introducing this salve to my coworkers, they are now obsessed too! I cannot thank you all enough for providing a wonderful product!

  18. Stacia Fadden

    I found these products while visiting family in Cincy. I am kicking myself for not picking up more, and will be ordering more to be shipped to me in Montana. I am hooked, and now my coworkers are too. The scents are amazing, and my hands look and feel wonderful. My favorites are the Panacea and the Peppy Feet. These are great for people working in the service industry!

  19. Karen Davis (verified owner)

    I’m a nurse and wash my hands a zillion times a day. This lotion is the best by far. I took it to work and everyone loves it too !! Thank’s for saving our hands while we save life’s !!

  20. Karen Haggis

    Every winter my hands become so dry my skin will crack & bleed around my knuckles & finger tips becoming very painful. Through the years I’ve tried every product on the market claiming relief. Nothing has ever worked as fast as your Beehaven salve. I purchase supplies each time I’m at Findley Market in fear I will run out! I carry a small one in my purse, keep larger ones on my bathroom sink & in the kitchen. This product is truly the best to quickly healing dry skin and when used regularly will prevent the painful cracking of skin! Thank You for making Beehaven Salve!!

  21. Candace Moxley

    I received your hand salve as a present and after 3 days my hands look younger. I had a minor burn on my finger and a quick application took the sting out. I swear I can feel the love in the product. I am looking forward to buying more products for Christmas presents. I especially like how they are local, organic and made with love!

  22. Lynn

    I received the Lavender Hand Salve for Christmas. It is wonderful! I’ve used it on my hands and feet and they are soft, not my usual winter dry and rough. I love the lavender scent but will try the others. Since I’m almost out I’ll be getting more soon. Awesome stuff!!

  23. Claire (verified owner)

    I was thinking about how I needed to write a review about how much I love this product and the wonders it does for my skin… But I honestly cannot find any other words except for, I LOVE LOVE LOVE.
    I have sent people here to purchase your salve because I swear by it.
    Keep it up!

  24. Gretchen

    My little sister got me some of your Peppy Feet for my birthday and wow do I LOVE it!! I use it on my hands more than my feet – the scent is fantastic, the texture is perfect and the best part – it works so long – good bye dry, itchy, winter skin – I’ll DEF be getting more – keep up the great work!!

  25. Debbie (verified owner)

    I was in Ohio for a visit with family and they took me Finley Markey and the first thing I saw was your products. I bought a small jar of your hand save ( vanilla sandlewood). I live in a dry area and my hands are always dry. I have bee using your product for about 2 weeks daily and my hands are the smoothest they have every been. I will be ordering from you from now on. Thank you.

  26. Lynnette

    These hand salves are wonderful. I love Panacea and Love Light. The fragrance lasts for a long time. These salves actually heal your hands instead of just masking the problem. One application a day, and my hands feel so soft. A little goes a long way, so they are a great value! Love Bee Haven products!

  27. Lynn

    I have been using these for over a year. Love the scents and the wonderful results. Smooth skin, scented and nongreasy. I have friends now hooked on these too….Peppy Feet is wonderful for sandal worthy heels and toes. Love Sandalwood Vanilla too.

  28. Mary Willis

    I love this product! It stays with you better than regular hand lotion but does not feel greasy. It also smells amazing! I got the Sandalwood Vanilla.

  29. Rachael

    I worked in a restaurant until recently, and I had to constantly wash my hands. Working there for two years made my hands crack and feel dry. Even after a month at my new office job my hands get to feeling dry after a while. I realized when I put on the lavender salve at night, my hands felt wonderful for the whole day at the office!!!! I can see my hands healing up, and I can feel the difference compared to lotion. And I don’t have to keep reapplying the salve.

  30. Ruby

    I suffer from severe eczema on my face and arms, a reaction to certain foods and stress. While I have managed to keep it under control most of the time through dietary changes, I still get flare ups now and then which puts me in a great deal of discomfort, pain, and embarrassment (who wants icky red eczema on their FACE!). I have been to nationally acclaimed dermatologists and have tried countless prescription and non-prescription creams and natural remedies like coconut oil but nothing helped. While at Findlay Market during a particularly uncomfortable flare up I took some of the sample of Butter Me Up and covered my eczema with it. I kept walking through the market and within minutes my skin started to feel better. I immediately went back and bought it. That was yesterday and today my skin is almost completely normal again. I am so grateful to have found something that eases the pain and actually heals my skin without any unnatural chemicals (something very important to me). Thank you so much!!!
