There are quite a few conversations going on right now about the perils of plastic, and the situation we have created for ourselves. SO, we thought it would be the perfect time to usher in our plans for doing our part to keep plastic out of the waterways and landfills.
By January 1,2019 Hipbees will no longer be offering products in plastic containers. That means:
*some products will be discontinued
*some products will come in a water-soluble container
*some products will come in paperboard containers.
*all products will still be made with love,for you. And be organic when possible.
We are going to have a lot of fun with this project, and truly hope you follow along:)
We LOVE using these products! And so does everyone I have ever gifted them to :)

It's getting late, it looks like I am going to make it JUST under the wire to celebrate International Women's Day here on the internet!
And what better way than to celebrate some of the amazing women I know?!?!
It was a major privilege in this life to have been raised by a strong independent woman. I think it was her courage and determination that has made me a resilient person :) It is not easy raising kids, nevermind two that are 7 years apart, while working full time. My momma was one tough cookie, with a great sense of humor.
I also happen to know some amazing women, from all sorts of backgrounds that inspire and keep me in awe every single day of my life. There are too many to count and list, and it keeps me so humble thinking of all the amazing work they do!
I work alone, but I am surrounded by a multitude of talented bad ass women that make AMAZING things and run some seriously bad ass businesses. I LOVE supporting them, and their stuff however I can.
It is my profound love of what I do, and what other women I know do, that lead me to creating the "Our Favorites" tab on our homepage. It is where you can go to shop for really awesome treasures made locally, by awesome HipChicks (is that lame?). I will feature them in blogs and instagram posts. Talk about their products, and mine, and them, and me, and nature, and food.
I really want to see if you are interested in this. Let me know how you feel about my experiment in the comments below, or by adding some new and interesting stuff to your cart when you are checking out with your Hipbees goodies.
Lots of love and squishy hugs,
Rosa Canina: Commonly known as "Rose Hip"
They are the fruit of the Wild Rose, which is the official flower of Alberta! We have three different types of Rose Hips here:
What is all the hype about these little beauties?
They are loaded with Vitamin A and C, as well as Beta Carotene. Sounds fancy, and it is. It means that they help boost immunity and clear out free-radicals from your bod.
Rose hip oil has the ability to help regenerate new skin cells and thus, can be used to treat scars, acne and burns. While it is an astringent, it does not dry out the skin; actually it helps to rehydrate it, keeping the moisture in. Vitamin A is commonly referred to as the "skin vitamin" and helps to keep the skin elastic and nourished. This will not only prevent wrinkles, but can actually help to minimize any that have already appeared. What more can I say? Rose Hip for the win!
The oil from Rose Hips is fantastic, but consuming them is also a great way to feel the benefits for sure! They are an amazing addition to teas and smoothies. You can also add them to jam and syrups. LOTS of herbalists and apothecarians swear by their healing powers and all around good juju. If they are dehydrated, you just need to soak them overnight before adding to a smoothie or jam :)
There are plenty of interesting facts out there all about Rose Hip, I encourage you to snoop around and see what sparks your curiosity. I always had this weird desire to string fresh ones and then let them dry into a necklace and wear it like beads. My oldest son thought that was super weird. BUT turns out Folk Lore about rose hips claims stringing them around, or wearing them can be good luck and even summon helpful spirits. I think I will probably get some dreads just so I can weave strung rose hips into them. Maybe not. We will see how rebellious my teen gets.
A note about harvesting:
Although this plant is abundant it should be treated like a rare gift. Best not to get greedy...on a bumper year there are literally thousands of rose hips around...But animals need them too. Rose hips provide nourishment for many creatures all through the fall and winter. Leave 2/3 of the bush for our furry or feathered friends :)
Check out the Wild Craft section of our website if you want to snag some ethically harvested Rose Hips or Rose Hip infused organic coconut oil! Our dried Rose Hips are easy to add to your favourite tea or smoothies. OR get busy making some concoctions of your own!
