Ives and Bees

Ives and Bees

100% handmade soy candles, soaps, and other body products using natural ingredients.

Our story:
We are two sisters, Vanessa and Ivy. It all started when Vanessa’s oldest daughter got the family into handmade natural soaps. They noticed the difference and loved the many benefits of the natural ingredients in their soap so they started using natural soaps on a regular basis. Then, Vanessa decided to do lots of research to try and make soaps herself at home. After much trial and error, she finally found the perfect balance and started giving some away to family and friends. Thankfully, they had positive feedback and enjoyed using her soaps. In fact, Ivy loved using them so much she encouraged Vanessa to share them with the world! Since then, Ivy has learned and developed a passion for candle making herself.

With plenty of doubts, hesitations, frustration, testing, paperwork, and everything else that comes along with starting a new business, Ives and Bees was born.

Our products are all handcrafted in small batches locally in Florida. We truly believe in the benefits of natural ingredients. That is why we decided to embark on our goal to make them more accessible to more people. We try our best to find ways to make them affordable, and at the same time, we also want to make them in a way that preserves our environment.

We hope to be able to continue to learn and grow and help spread natural products all over. We would love for you to join us on this journey!
