Bee Balm Botanicals is the health and beauty line by Katherine Krumwiede, licensed acupuncturist and herbalist. After completing the research for her classes “Everyday Toxins — They’re Everywhere” and “Promoting Breast Health on a Daily Basis”, it became apparent to Katherine that there were just too many toxins in skin care products available commercially due to the fact that the FDA granted the cosmetics industry self-regulation back in 1938.
The answer to the toxic tango of skin care products and our health: make one’s own skin care products with simple pure ingredients that make a girl feel good.
