Always do a patch test first. Use a small amount in a circular motion wiping off any excess. Allow to dry then get buffing, repeating 2 or 3 times until a lovely lustre is achieved. Dried, undernourished leather will darken slightly when applied. There is no colourant in the balm just natural beeswax and oils which create a protective barrier and bring out the original colour of the leather. Repeat as necessary to keep nourished and looking good.

The hives, consisting of about one million bees, were established by owner Elisabeth Barton-Grew in 2015 to fulfil a lifelong passion for nurturing and protecting nature's best-loved pollinators, and help to do something to abate the alarming decline in the species and the environmental ecosystem they support. The bees forage on the abundant natural larder on her doorstep but can fly up to three miles for particularly tasty treats. Typically, her natural forest larder includes foxgloves, borage, knapweed, clover, cornflowers, poppy’s, honeysuckle, brambles, horse chestnut tree pollen and acres of buttercups. They particularly enjoy her recently planted fruit orchard.
In the company’s early days, Elisabeth was busy making honey and a range of beeswax gifts, filling the house with the sweet smell of warm beeswax. More recently the growing operation moved to a dedicated site in her wild meadow fields, and in 2021 she launched the Beevitalise Range of organic polishes - a collection of nourishing and restorative balms to encourage the repair and revitalisation of old or existing items before buying new. Using 90% British ingredients, the balms are handmade in Windsor based on recipes from Elisabeth's late Uncle Tom who was also an avid beekeeper. Beeswax is the base ingredient that gives natural shine and is also antibacterial and acts as a natural barrier.
