We post every month about research trips that relate to our products! We hope you learn something here!


Did you know that beeswax is used to make honeycombs and has numerous benefits for humans? It can be used for a variety of purposes such as making candles, polishes, and cosmetics. Beeswax is great for the skin and can even promote wound healing. A lotion made from beeswax can help moisturize and regenerate the skin. The natural yellow color and scent of beeswax also make it a popular ingredient in many beauty products. By incorporating beeswax into your daily routine, you can enjoy the benefits of using natural products for your skin.

Lip Balm

Lip Balm starts in Eypgt, around Cleopatra's time, and they use most of the same ingredients as us. They used beeswax and olive oil to keep their lips smooth and hydrated. Eygpt had a better idea than we did because, in the 1800s, we used ear wax! Modernly, we put chemicals and acids on our lips without glancing at the ingredients. Honey Calico wants you to stop using acids on your lips and begin using beeswax. Beeswax is the way to go!

Cat Training

Training cats can be challenging at first due to the common belief that cats are untrainable. However, cats can be trained with patience and dedication. Building a strong bond with your cat based on trust is essential. You will also need high-reward treats for initial training and low-reward treats for later stages. When teaching new skills, starting with sitting is a good idea because it requires minimal effort and can be easily learned by cats.


If they don’t sit right away that's OK! They’ll get bored and sit by the 5th time you come up to them. 


Did you know that anklets have been around since the 7th century in Persia? Back then, they were a symbol of power and social status. Nowadays, people wear anklets for various reasons, including health benefits. For example, they can help reduce swelling in the heel area and boost immune support. Anklets are also popular as a symbol of friendship and a fashion accessory that highlights the ankles and complements outfits. At Honey Calico, we care about your well-being and safety, which is why we offer handmade anklets. To be honest, We were surprised to learn about all the different uses of anklets!

Honey Soap

Soap stands essential to daily life and acts as a natural moisturizer. Soap plays a large part in our lives, determining how many germs we have on our hands. Soap has much more benefits than you would think; soap has a calming effect on the skin and can moisturize the skin. Our ancestors started crafting soap in Babylon; This probably is because their hands were dry and grimy. Honey Calico soap cleans and moisturizes all hands using our honey to enhance the feeling and smell. 

The Dangers of Chemicals.

 Taking care of your skin can be complex and confusing because many skincare products contain toxic chemicals that can harm our skin. Some high-end products may cause a burning sensation when applied, and they do not necessarily help to improve pores or moisturize the face, despite what the brand may claim. Many products contain acids, which can be harmful to the skin, especially when used together. Instead, it is recommended to use natural products that do not contain harmful preservatives. Using a moisturizer like a face cream can help to keep your face healthy. When a brand was tested, it did not perform well, as the pores were still visible and the face became dry, despite using the correct moisturizer. The key takeaway is to use gentle natural products on your skin.
