The Happy Hive produces high quality, small batch natural beeswax products for your home using only the highest quality ingredients. Our products are blended and hand poured right here on our Vermont homestead. Whenever possible, we make them with our own beeswax. What we can’t supply ourselves, we source from other reputable producers.

Our home products offer a natural alternative to mainstream options produced with chemicals, petroleum products, and artificial scents. They are healthier for your family, and offer a natural, soothing aroma.

The Natural Difference

While many polishes and conditioners are made with petroleum-based mineral oil, we decided to change our recipe to use Organic Refractionated Coconut Oil.

Fractionated coconut oil is a vegetable-derived virgin oil that has been distilled for a longer shelf-life and to retain its liquid form. It is naturally processed without the use of chemicals.

When combined with our beeswax and other natural ingredients like organic shea butter and almond oil, the result a nice combination of moisture, shine, and protection that helps our polishes and conditioners effectively restore dried out wood or leather.

Fractionated coconut oil is also a preferred ingredient in many high-quality skin care products, so you can feel good about getting some on your skin!

Our motto is “Good for us, Good for the World” and we take that seriously. We hope you’ll love these new versions of our products!

All of our products can be purchased through our Etsy Shop.

Beeswax Furniture Polish

The amazing protective properties of beeswax make it an excellent ingredient for homemade polishes and conditioners. Our beeswax furniture and wood polish can be used as a first coat on new woodworking projects or as a regular treatment for wood furniture or cutting boards. It combines high quality beeswax with organic fractionated coconut oil, providing both a deep moisturizing shine and a layer of protection.

Available in two sizes

8oz Beeswax Furniture Polish is great for bigger woodworking projects or for having a long-term supply;

4oz Beeswax Furniture Polish is great for smaller projects or for regular furniture/table polishing at home.

Ingredients: Organic Fractionated Coconut Oil & All-Natural Beeswax.

Beeswax Cutting Board Conditioner

Our Cutting Board Conditioner is similar to our furniture polish but packaged in smaller quantities. The 2 oz tin container is perfect to keep on hand in your kitchen.

Apply regularly to cutting boards, wooden spoons, knife handles, or small wooden bowls. Regular conditioning helps these items to retain moisture and avoid cracking. You’ll be amazed at how knife lines disappear after applying polish to your cutting boards!

Ingredients: Organic Fractionated Coconut Oil & All-Natural Beeswax.

Beeswax Leather Conditioner & Polish

all natural leather conditioner and shoe polish

Our Leather Conditioner and Polish restores leather shoes and bags and protects them from the elements. We combine four natural ingredients that each serve an important function:

Sweet Almond Oil adds moisture back into dried out leather;

Shea Butter conditions the leather (natural leather produces oils to protect its outer layer; over time this natural oil is lost and needs to be replaced);

Fractionated Coconut Oil (adds shine to your leather products);

Beeswax add a protective outer layer to protect against the elements (rain, show, mud, etc.)
