Our handmade solid scent raises funds for bee health, 10% of proceeds are donated to the Pollinator Partnership.
As you wear and smell this heavenly scent throughout the day, you mimic the actions of the bee whose instincts are driven by scent.
APIS is a scent for all sexes, it's clean and musky tones are a bolder version of the Rigaud Cypress scent. APIS is made of: 100% NOLA Beeswax (from Beehives in the 9th Ward), Fractionated Coconut Oil, & Rigaud Cypress Scent.
QUEEN is a feminine scent, a lighter version of the Rigaud Cypress with more subtle tones. QUEEN is made of: 50% NOLA Beeswax (from Beehives in the 9th Ward) & 50% Refined Beeswax, Fractionated Coconut Oil, & Rigaud Cypress Scent.
Apply the solid scent on your skin as you wish, the beeswax base also acts as a moisturizer. The travel tins make it easy to bring along in your bag as well as to re-use.
These amazing scents come in a hand-stamped cotton bag, made in Kentucky of native cotton, with a 100% recycled paper detail card.
1 of every 3 bites of food that we take require pollination. Poor bee health is a rising epidemic, due to industrial farming & pollinating practices, disease, and pesticides.

**Shipping Internationally: We are happy to ship to you wherever you are in the world! Just select your country from the list and shipped via USPS, estimated 7-10 days for arrival. If shipping via USPS, tracking and insurance are unavailable, so we are not able to guarantee your package. (We haven't had any issues to date, knock on wood.)
**Returns/exchanges - Unfortunately these are not possible due to the hygienic nature of the soaps and body care products. Made to order items are also not possible to return or exchange. For the rest of our items, if items are not damaged, a return or exchange is possible on a case by case basis.
**Glycerin Soap - High quality glycerin soap naturally attracts moisture from the air. If your soap has a little of the protective waxed shipping tissue, just give your Bird or Bar an initial wash, this is completely normal for a handmade soap. The BirdSoaps are carefully wrapped in 100% recycled tissue paper to protect their shape during shipping.
