Welcome to Humblebee & Me!

I’m Marie—the “me” in Humblebee &  Me. I love to make things—cosmetics, soaps, lotions, lip balms, and most of all… messes. I’m on a journey to ditch shop bought body products and cosmetics and swap them for homemade, high quality, natural alternatives. I post new recipes twice a week (every Monday and Thursday), and I’ve already got over 750 recipes up here for you to look at. I’d love it if you DIYed with me!

Lilac Rose Face Mask

My garden has sprung to life with beautiful pale purple lilacs, fluffy pink roses, and a lawn that needs to be mowed far more often than seems necessary (it’s still better than shovelling the walk, though!). Whenever I work outside on my back porch I’m... read more

DIY Equipment I Use All The Time

I’m often asked about what equipment type things are needed for DIYing. Most of it is fairly readily available kitchen gear that you’ll already have, thankfully, but over the years I’ve definitely found there are some things I use more than others.... read more

Silken Rose and Green Tea Lotion

I’ve had this Silken Rose and Green Tea lotion on my to-make list for ages, and thought it was high time I moved it from the “to-do” list to the “done” list! Everything about it seemed like a good idea; healing aloe, moisturizing silk and... read more

Chocolate Lip Butter

Out of all the things I’ve made that I have to frequently remind myself not to eat, this Chocolate Lip Butter is pretty high up that list. It smells downright delicious, and leaves my lips oh-so wonderfully soft and hydrated. And did I mention that it smells... read more

Calming Rose and Chamomile Facial Steam

After basking in the humidity of beautiful places like Southern France and New York for most of last month, my skin really misses having some moisture in the air. I know I’m a bit of an oddity, but I love humidity and heat—especially when they’re combined.... read more

Coconut Aloe Shampoo Bars

These pretty, citrussy Coconut Aloe Shampoo Bars are utterly lovely—between the fresh, summery colours and the bright, citrussy scent I’m quite smitten. It occurred to me a few weeks ago that it’d been ages since I’d made a straight-up shampoo bar. I... read more

Essential Oil Cold and Flu Roller

I’ve got a disgusting cold right now, and this Essential Oil Cold and Flu Roller is my new favourite thing. It helps clear the sinuses, soothes my assorted aches, and helps cut through the pea-soup fog that has temporarily replaced my brain. Loaded with... read more

Creamy Lavender Cardamom Cleansing Lotion

I am loving this gentle (yet super effective) creamy lavender cardamom cleansing lotion these days. It got its first hardcore test late one night (ok, early one morning) when I returned from a sparkle themed party with a good half of my face completely coated in neon... read more

Pomegranate Primrose Summer Facial Serum

My new Pomegranate Primrose Summer Facial Serum is a fantastic way to lighten up your skin care routine for warmer days (I’m calling it my PrimPom Serum for short, ha!). It is silky and light, absorbing into your skin quickly and leaving it beautifully hydrated,... read more

Powdered Acidic Hair Rinse

When I went to Costa Rica for a week in 2014 I thought I could get away with skipping my apple cider vinegar rinses for a week. Oooooh boy, was I wrong. An acidic rinse works to smooth the shaft of the hair back down after basic shampoo opens everything up. My hair... read more

London Fog Lip Balm

I am quite smitten with this glossy, fragrant London Fog Lip Balm. Inspired by the lovely latte made with Earl Grey tea, steamed milk, and vanilla syrup, it conjures up memories of misty days wandering cobblestone lined streets with a woolen jacket and a chunky scarf.... read more

Pink Rose Clay Bar

After falling madly in love with my Everyday French Green Clay Bar I decided I needed more of them. Clay bars are downright fantastic for daily light clay use and they’re far more travel friendly than a baggie of mysterious looking powder (especially if... read more

Rose & Neroli Vegan Deodorant

This smooth, brightly floral scented deodorant is just lovely. It melts into the skin quickly and beautifully, leaving you ready to tackle your days stink-free. Because it doesn’t contain any wax it melts to a thin liquid when massaged into the skin, meaning it... read more

Candy Cane Body Lotion

This thick and luxurious candy cane body lotion makes a lovely Christmas gift. It leaves the skin soft and slightly peppermint scented, and if you’re looking for a bit of an extra festive hint, you can add a touch of mica for some holiday shimmer. All lotions are an... read more

Cranberry Sauce Soap

I bought a bag of bright red cranberry seeds last year, and found them in the back of my cupboard just in time to make a Cranberry Sauce soap as my second Christmas soap for 2014. These pretty reddish bars are bright and spicy, and feature a sprinkling of pretty... read more

White Chocolate Body Frosting

This delicious smelling white chocolate body frosting is rather divine. Light and easily absorbed into the skin, it smells of vanilla and cocoa, and may leave you wondering if you can lick yourself (I don’t recommend it). The base of this decadent whipped white... read more

Rocky Mountain Foot Butter

Kristin wrote me with the most lovely sounding recipe request—she was looking for a “rich, tingly foot butter that smells like a pine tree”. Mmmm. As a lover of all things forest scented, I absolutely had to make this awesome (and as of yet hypothetical) foot butter.... read more

Pumpkin Spice Lip Balm

I thought I’d continue my pumpkin spice spree with this delightful Pumpkin Spice Lip Balm. Not only does it smell of pie and leave your lips smooth and glossy, but it also contains real pumpkin oil, which gives it a wonderful mandarin hue. Pumpkin seed oil is... read more
