Ojai, CA (June 5, 2012) – Donna Steinman, an Ojai based mother of three, was inspired by her personal knowledge of the healing properties of pure honey bee ingredients and natural oils to craft a new, all-in-one, multi-use, certified-organic skin cream.

Mirroring the process of what bees create to nourish their Queen and keep the hive healthy, Medicine Mama’s Bee Magic blends propolis, honey, royal jelly, bee pollen and beeswax with extra virgin olive oil to heal, soothe and moisturize skin. In addition to making skin radiant and supple, it is also known to treat rashes, burns and scars; protect cuts, scrapes and bites from infection, and soothe dry or irritated skin.

Bee Magic is hand crafted and designed to bring out the naturally powerful health benefits of its ingredients. Healing antimicrobial honey is a gentle anti-septic and anti-bacterial ingredient. Purifying propolis is the most biologically active tree resin with health benefits dating back centuries. Revitalizing bee pollen is nature’s multi-vitamin that stimulates cell renewal when used externally. Nourishing royal jelly contains gelatin, a catalyst for collagen production and a natural antibiotic. Protective beeswax contains anti-inflammatory, anti-allergenic and germicidal properties to keep skin healthy and strong.

“My goal is to deliver the healing properties of what the bees create to us, without interfering with nature’s intelligent design,” shared Donna, the Medicine Mama. “Every raw material has a relationship; how we combine them together is what makes the product work. We’re coaxing each ingredient back to its original form and providing a delivery system for the magic that is naturally there.”

What started as a product created simply for Donna, her family and friends naturally grew into Medicine Mama’s Apothecary, one of only a few organic processors and handlers on the market today making certified organic skin care products.

Similar ingredients, love and care go into the other certified organic, bee-inspired products that make up Medicine Mama’s line. Baby & Mama protects baby’s skin from irritating rashes caused by bacteria, heals chafed skin and sensitive rashes, and offers after-bath moisture. For mama, it protects against and reduces signs of stretch marks and helps maintain skin’s elasticity during pregnancy, birth and postpartum. The Bee Magic Wand works as a daily moisturizer and serves as a remedy and relief to chapped lips, after-sun care, burn and scar repair, cold sores, cuts, scrapes rashes or bites. V Magic, which soothes and heals intimate skin, contains ingredients with anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, as well as Sea Buckthorn to aid in the repair and care of tender tissue.
