Honey and essential oils

Is Honey vegan?

Honey is somewhat controversial food among vegans. Unlike overt animal foods like meat, eggs, and dairy, foods from insects aren’t always grouped into the vegan category.


In fact, some vegans who eat an otherwise entirely plant-based diet may opt to include honey in their diet. That said, most vegans view honey as non-vegan and avoid eating it for several reasons. For more information, see here with some vegan alternatives to honey.

What’s the difference between essential oils and synthetic fragrances?

Essential Oils are natural products extracted from different plants’ parts through processes such as steam distillation, solvent extraction and expressed oils. On the other hand, Fragrance oils are manufactured synthetic scents with added chemicals to enhance the aroma. They are artificially created fragrances and they contain artificial substances.

Can your products differ in scent and texture?

Since we use natural ingredients, especially honey, and all products are handmade, the texture and scent may slightly vary from one batch to another.


Where are Honey Body Care products manufactured?

Our collections Edèa and Mèl are made in London by our founder using honey and essential oils sourced from UK suppliers.

How should I store Honey Body Care products?

Store in normal temperature (18°C) and keep away from direct sunlight in order for the products to stay fresh.

Does Honey Body Care products have an expiry date?
