Why We're Different

Why Handcrafted HoneyBee Is Different
 We believe that handmade matters.

In a day and age when so much is dependent upon machines and technology, we still place value in the hands that mix each batch of raw material, that pour each lip balm or deodorant, that tuck each kit component into a box.

We make every single product in micro-batches, and we're proud that Handcrafted HoneyBee products are truly handcrafted.


We believe that USA-made matters. 

Nothing is outsourced overseas—in fact, nothing is outsourced at all. Every single product you receive from us is handmade and hand-assembled in our studio in Tehachapi, California.

Especially when considering gifts for your children, handmade USA-based toys are harder and harder to come by. By choosing a small business that handcrafts everything in California, you are choosing a business that knows the source and quality of every single ingredient that goes into a kit or product.


We believe that family matters.

We dream that Handcrafted HoneyBee will someday grow to be a business large enough to support our family. But even more importantly, we want to support other families–not someday, but today.

We believe in providing quality activities that can be done by parents & children, siblings, cousins, and friends that are like family.

We believe there is value in the fact that your child (or grandchild, or niece, or other loved one…) is using a kit that was carefully planned by another mother. That mother also curated the ingredients, helped package the materials (or worked side-by-side with someone who did) & thoughtfully designed the creation experience. 

We believe in producing quality skin care so that you can rest assured knowing that your loved ones are not using products with parabens, phthalates, aluminum, propylene glycol, or petroleum-based products.

Every product we make is authentically offered from our family to yours. We are grateful for the opportunity to be welcomed into your home.


Thank you for valuing the difference.
