The Bahia Honey story began in 2005 following the birth of my daughter, Naime (ny-ee-may). Soon after her birth, I noticed dry patches all over her body, which her pediatrician determined was eczema. In my personal quest to find an effective moisturizer for my newborn's skin issue, I searched high and low for products that would effectively and safely soften the rough areas of her skin. Every product I bought would initially appear to moisturize her skin, but by the end of the day, her dry, ashy patches would return. It was really frustrating! I wanted to find the perfect moisturize that not only was effective but was free of harsh chemicals and preservatives. Running out of options, I sought advice from my friend Kim, a naturopathic physician.
After recommending some homeopathic remedies that didn't work well for my baby, Kim suggested that I do some research and take a stab at making my own. At first I thought it was a crazy idea. I mean, who makes their own lotion?
But after a year of experimentation with oils, butters, waxes and serums (and countless failed attempts), I finally achieved success! My magic mixture worked wonders on my daughter's skin and seemed to keep the dry patches at bay! It also worked great on my husband's dry skin and made my normal skin glow! It was a great moisturizer for the entire family. Soon after, extended family and friends began requesting jars of my magic concoction.
After using my product on her son's eczema, my best friend said to me, "Bahia, honey, you have to share this with the world!" Now, over a decade later and with no signs of those dry patches on my beautiful daughter, we are continuing to share Bahia Honey with anyone seeking an intensive moisturizer for their skin. We hope you will love this product as much as we do!
