Taking a cue from Tracy Anderson, we love to add manuka honey to our water for hydration, a quick energy boost and to keep our skin healthy! Shop our KFactor 16 in 325g here.

Though Vitamin D is necessary for health, overexposure can lead to sunburn and premature skin aging. Take care of your skin by using organic and mineral sunscreens or covering up. You only need about 10 minutes of midday sun to get your daily dose of the vitamin so use that umbrella for the rest of your time outdoors!

Time to break out the flip flops and shorts! Created with our favorite ingredients to exfoliate dry skin, this clean concoction will leave you with soft, glowing skin that smells divine!  Shop our Fir honey 325g here.

After exfoliating, we make sure to slather on our favorite body lotion to lock in hydration. Our picks are always made with organic ingredients without any of the unnecessary toxic stuff!

From Face to Feet – DIY Fir Body Scrub

Wedderspoon Salt Scrub 3

It’s that time of the year again —  the season when we break out our flip-flops and shorts from out of boxes and underneath beds, sweep off the dust bunnies and proudly bare our skin once more. I usually rejoice when I get to strip away winter’s layers and pare down my wardrobe to summer basics but unfortunately this year my skin is in need of some serious summer TLC. So, off to my DIY kitchen I went, armed with my favorite ingredients to exfoliate my dry skin. After slathering on this clean concoction, I was left with soft, glowing skin that smelled divine! I loved that instead of environmentally damaging microbeads, this mix is all natural and non-toxic. This scrub can be used anywhere you need some gentle buffing, from face to feet! #summerhoneylove

(There’s no better time to try your hand at this DIY homage to green beauty, Fir honey is 25% off now!)

Wedderspoon Salt Scrub 2

Mix all ingredients together in whatever quantities you see fit — I make mine with equal parts of each! Apply the mix on warm, slightly damp skin and exfoliate in a circular motion (don’t press too hard)! You can allow the mix to sit on your skin for five minutes so the ingredients can do their work, then rinse off well with warm water and pat dry. Voila!

Treat Your Mom – Courtesy of Wedderspoon

Wedderspoon April 16

As a new mom, Mother’s Day has taken on different meaning for me this year. In the past I’ve bought the obligatory flower/card combination for my own amazing mother and though I indeed wanted to honor her, I didn’t fully realize the importance of the day before embarking on my own journey in motherhood.

More than just one day, May 10 is a symbol —  a tribute to the overwhelming and profound love a mother has for her child. It signifies countless nights awake rocking my own girl to sleep, a thousand shared giggles and fierce hugs through tears because sometimes, only mama will do.

Wedderspoon wishes to honor, pamper and indulge all the mothers in our lives with this year’s Mother’s Day Spa Package. It includes our 100% Raw Organic Manuka Honey 12+, our Organic Peppermint Lip Balm with Manuka Honey and Peppermint and your choice of either Manuka Honey and Oatmeal Soap or Manuka Honey with Tea Tree Soap. As always, we promise to provide the highest quality honey and honey products, especially on your mom’s special day.

Get Going and Glowing with Our 100% Raw Manuka Blend

Manuka Marble with type

One of the most common concerns I hear about initiating and sticking with a healthy eating lifestyle (notice I didn’t say ‘diet’!) is affordability. While many alternative dietary options can be cost prohibitive, maintaining your health should never be an endeavor only the wealthy can enjoy. We here at Wedderspoon truly believe that the therapeutic benefits of manuka and specialty honeys should be available to everyone, which is why we created the newest member to our repertoire of delicious and nutritious honeys, our 100% raw Manuka Blend. Affordable enough to enjoy daily and full of the spectrum of benefits of pure Manuka honey, this Manuka blend might just earn a coveted spot in your pantry or medicine cabinet! Our smooth and rich-tasting Manuka blend carries remnants of raw New Zealand honeys, creating a truly unique and healthful tonic. Not sure how to enjoy it? We’ve got you covered with a DIY beauty recipe and smoothie recipe below! Shop the Manuka Blend here (get it while it’s on sale!)

DIY ‘Spring Is Here’ 100% Raw Manuka Blend Mask

Let’s get our glow on. Ongoing alternative research shows manuka honey to be both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, which makes it a perfect remedy for problem skin! But, this amazing honey’s benefits don’t stop there. Remnants of New Zealand honeys like Beechwood add softness, moisture and balance to the skin due to a high concentration of live enzymes and antioxidants. The fats in the avocado and whole milk yogurt are moisturizing to the skin, while lactic acid in the yogurt help to smooth your skin, even out skin tone and diminish the appearance of pores.

Mix these ingredients in a bowl until smooth. Spread the mixture over your face and let sit for 20-30 minutes before washing off.

‘Skin-loving Smoothie’ with 100% Raw Manuka Blend 

We all know that in order to feel beautiful on the outside, topical application of non-toxic products isn’t enough! Focusing on what we put into, not just onto our bodies is crucial. As our skin is a direct reflection of our internal health, treat yourself right with this skin-loving smoothie. Due to the high amount of prebiotics, antioxidants and electrolytes, the Manuka Blend included in this smoothie is a real nutrient powerhouse. It’s the perfect way to kick-start your day.

Blend together the following and drink fresh!

  • One cup of organic baby kale
  • Half an organic cucumber
  • Juice of one organic lemon
  • One organic green apple
  • 6-8 oz of coconut water or coconut milk (for a creamier consistency)
  • 1 tablespoon of 100% raw Manuka Blend
