We thought you would like to know how our body scrub ingredients come together to bring you healthy glowing skin.

Essential oils and carrier oils are combined to maximize the effectiveness of beauty products so they can be healing and pleasing to skin.

Essential oils are distilled from plants, are potent, and evaporate quickly leaving behind a lovely scent. They are for external use and have many healing properties which are excellent for skin care products. Benefits may include evening skin tone, soothing irritated skin, regenerating skin cells, reducing inflammation, brightening skin, and moisturizing skin. All of these can refresh and enhance skin's appearance.

We include the following in our body scrubs:

  • coriander seed

  • ho wood

  • lavender

  • orange

  • palmarosa

  • sandalwood

Other high-quality essential oils:

  • geranium

  • frankincense

  • ylang ylang

  • lemongrass

  • juniper

  • clary sage

  • rose

  • neroli

Carrier oils are a fatty extract from plants. They dilute essential oils (but not their effect) and enable essential oils to be applied comfortably to the skin. They complement essential oils and pairing them creates a compelling natural product. They have a subtle scent and don't evaporate quickly like essential oils. They also have their own therapeutic properties due to the natural nutrients they contain. These may include nourishing and moisturizing which promote healthier skin.

We include the following in our body scrubs:

  • jojoba

  • pomegranate seed

  • sunflower seed

Other high-quality carrier oils: 

  • coconut

  • olive

  • sweet almond

  • argan

  • avocado

  • grape seed

  • moringa

  • apricot kernel

We hope you find this helpful. See our full list of natural ingredients here. Feel happy in your skin!

Upcycle Your Skincare Containers

May 04, 2021

What is Upcycling?
Upcycling creates less trash by reusing and transforming the containers and other things you already have. Brilliant! The examples below save you money and if your items are biodegradable at least they don’t end up floating in the ocean.
  • use old fabric and towels as drop cloths or rags
  • reuse paper in packages you receive for future packages you ship
  • get a refill on liquid products
  • repurpose skincare and cosmetic containers

Feel free to download our free eGuide, "How to Choose the Wellness Beauty Brand For You!"

Upcycling bottles, jars, paper tubes

First try to get refills of your products so the original container lives on. Afterward remove the label from glass using rubbing alcohol, sterilize and use for countless things. The possibilities are endless.
Glass Jar:
  • Terrarium
  • DIY skincare ingredients
  • snacks
  • organize craft materials
  • store tea or spices

Glass Bottle:

  • portable water spray
  • a vase
  • DIY bath oil blends

Glass Vile:

  • row of vases
  • travel size toiletries
  • store sand from fave beach

Paperboard tubes (sanitize first)

  • plant seeds
  • use it as a little gift box
  • battery candle holder

Have fun upcycling! You’ll love the feeling of helping the planet.

What are Buttersuckles?

March 25, 2021

Our founder loves honeysuckles and buttercups. That's how we got our name, "H. Honeycup". Wait, our name could have been buttersuckles!

We like that it sounds fresh and fun, like an outdoor adventure. Our name comes from nature and so do our ingredients. Plant-based just feels right.

It turns out that creating natural and organic skin care products is as much fun as using them. How many samples do we try before we select our final product? Too many to count!
