Ives and Bees
Welcome back to my blog. In today's post we are going to be taking a closer look at a small business named Ives and Bees. I found this business while browsing instagram and was instantly amazed with their photos of their products and the variety that they offered in their shop. This sister owned business specializes in all things that smell great, in their variety of products from soaps and candles and so much more. I was lucky enough to be sent over four different products to share with you all today.
Up first we have a handmade bar of soap. These are made using natural ingredients and essential oils are used to add the scent to the bars. Each bar is 4.5 oz in size which is pretty good size. They offer quite a few different bars of soap on their website such as Face Soaps, Hand and Body soaps and so much more. These also come in a big variety of scents too, the one they scent for me to try is in the scent "Garden Floral" which smells just like it sounds! I'm not usually a big fan of floral scents but this one is really nice. It's very light and not overpowering which is what I really enjoy about it. These bars of soap retail for $7.00 on their website.
Up next we have a travel tin candle in the scent White Sage and Lavender. The scent description for this amazing scent is.....
"A blend of herbs, lavender, and aromatic woods. The earthiness of the herbs elevates the lavender scent. Its clean, herbal scent summons an apothecary atmosphere and will transform your surroundings into a beautiful and calming area. This fragrance oil is infused with natural essential oils including cedarwood, clove and lavender.
Top Notes: Lavender
Middle Notes: Chamomile, Sage, Rosemary, Camphor
Base Notes: Cedar, Sandalwood"
This is one of the scents I was most excited to small when I was browsing their site. I think this is the perfect clean scent. The size of this candle is perfect too, it's not too big and not too small. These travel tin's retail for $20.00 which is a steal!
The next product I have to share with you all are some natural soy wax melts in the scent Mango & Coconut Milk.
The scent description for this one is:
A modern tropical fusion of fresh mango and creamy coconut milk. Enjoy hints of pineapple and orange top notes meld with ripe mango and a light scent of peach in this candle. Coconut milk and sugar base notes round out this lush, luxurious fruit medley. It brings a burst of summer to any room any day of the year. Top Notes: Orange, Pineapple Middle Notes: Peach, Mango Base Notes: Sugar, Coconut Milk
This is hands down my favorite scent! I am obsessed! This smells amazing in person. The most perfect scent for summer. I have already used these in my warmer at home and I was amazed when I tried them for the first time. The scent instantly filled the room, and made my house smell amazing. These are also available on their website in a bunch of different scents. These retail for $8.00 on the website.
The last product I have to share with you all is their wooden dough bowl candle. This is the 1st products I really noticed when I was first browsing their site so I am super excited that they included one of these for me to try out. The scent they chose to send me is Sea Salt and Orchid. The scent description for this one is.....
"Wrap your senses in an elegant blend of soft floral aroma and marine highlights with our Sea Salt and Orchid candle. It has crisp ozonic notes of sea salt, lush green leaves, and freesia, reminiscent of windswept walks along the shoreline. This candle evokes a feeling of being in an upscale spa making it ideal for a day to indulge in self-care. This fragrance is infused with essential oils, including sweet orange peel, lemon, eucalyptus, and clove leaf. Top Notes: Orange, Ozone Middle Notes: Green Leaves, Freesia, Sea Salt Base Notes: Amber, Light Musk, Tonka Bean
Pictures really does not do this candle justice. It's a work of art! I am so obsessed with this candle, and the scent is just amazing too! This is a scent I can use year round. I love the look of this candle it goes perfectly with my home decor and looks great on my coffee table. These retail for $45.00 on their website which is a pretty great deal considering the size of candle you are getting and how long this will last you!
