This salve is the first one I bought from Savannah Bee and has been my go to hand salve for dry, chapped hands and dry cuticles. It absorbs well and doesn't feel greasy or oily after application. I use it on my knees, too, for moisturizing. It's my favorite scent offered by Savannah Bee.

Another amazing product by this company; I use this when my feet are horribly dry in winter. Even though it's salve and "oily", I just finished rubbing the remainder on my knees or legs and never feel a need to wash it off my hands...it helps ultra dry cuticles too. And the SCENT....so fantastic and lingers all day even after 8 hours plus of wearing shoes and socks!

My sister purchased a can of this a couple years back and started using it because my skin started changing once I became a dialysis patient. I had to change the kinds of lotions that I used and everything so she said that she thought I should try it. AMAZING!!!!! The way my skin responds is divine. The beeswax acts more like a healing agent and is just what I need to maintain my ever changing skin. The product is a gift from #TheDivine and my soul cries out a humble “thank you” for giving me a little piece of heaven on earth.

I love how well this product has worked for my hands, cuticles, feet, and elbows. I literally put it on every day.
Apr 12th 2019
A little goes a long way. I use this as a hair finishing product. It adds some definition and light hold. Perfect!
Apr 8th 2019
I ordered this product for a different purpose than intended. I received a homemade beeswax product for Christmas that I use in my hair as a pomade. I am finding this to be a perfect replacement. A small amount is all that you need and it keeps my short hair looking great.

I love the salve. It really helps with my dry skin. I wish that I could fully deacribehow silky the salve feels as you put it on.

I purchased several skin care products from Savannah Bee, the salve being one of them. I loved all the products so much that I took them to my radiology office for my co workers to try. The salve was a huge hit with all of us. We are constantly washing and sanitizing our hands and this salve helped keep our hands and cuticles amazingly soft without staying oily and sticky. Within a few minutes of rubbing it in , it’s totally absorbed, leaving a nice, minty scent. I absolutely love it!
Feb 20th 2019
I am in LOVE with the Beewax Salve...like I have a tin for the office, my purse and beside my bed. I may be addicted. My new favorite thing!
Jan 14th 2019
Love, love it!. Keep a large tin at home and a small one in my bag! Instantly soothes without a greasy feel. It is healing and like the Heel Salve...a little goes a long way! Will definitely continue to use this product.

Mom really loves this product! Helped her hands become soft and smooth, no more cracks.
Mar 23rd 2018
I was in Savannah in November and I bought this while there and I love it so much I ordered it for my neighbor she has dry hands and this worked so good for her. I just ordered two more , this is how much I love this, it’s great for elbows and arms and hands!

I was on a work trip to Charleston, and happened upon the store downtown. I purchased the beeswax salve in hopes of helping relieve some of the flare up I was having at the time. After just a day or so, the redness and itch had subsided quite a bit. I now use this whenever I have flare ups and every night before bed; it is a HUGE relief and the only thing that I have found to alleviate some of the unfortunate irritation that comes with having psoriasis. I very much appreciate that there are only a few ingredients and they are plant based and straightforward. Thank you for such a great product with wholesome ingredients that is incredibly soothing!
Jan 24th 2018
I love this product. I climb a lot so my hand get dry because of the chalk. This helps my hands when they’re really dry and I have cracks and skin peeling of my fingers. The only I have with this product is the packaging. The lid constantly gets stuck and it got to the point where i had to tear it off with pliers. So if you do buy this then just be careful with how you put the lid on. Other than that it’s a great product and it will last you a long time.
Jan 19th 2018
Results amazing and quick. As a bonus the scent is pleasant. From the first application product worked. It requires very little product/applies well/ and absorbs well. It seems a little greasy when applied but absorbs quickly and lasts even after several hand washings. I have tried many products (too numerous to list) and this wins hands down! I will repurchase! I am so excited that we have a store in our vicinity. - from a customer for life!!!

I have a disease called Dermatomyositis. Among the multitude of symptoms is the horrible damage this disease causes to the skin. For years I have had extremely dry, raised, cracked, peeling, flakey, itchy, red, and painful skin on my legs. It has spread to my hands, arms, and shoulders despite the use of prescription medications and lotions. I happened to find the Beeswax salve while shopping in Pigeon Forge and decided to give it a try. That was the smartest decision I have ever made. Within 2 days I noticed a softening and smoothing of my skin. Within 2 weeks, the raised areas, the redness, itching, flakey, peeling, and irritation was gone. This is now week 4 and my skin looks almost normal again. I'm not embarrassed to wear short sleeves or for anyone to touch my hands. I cannot thank you enough for this wonderful product. It has made such a difference in my skin and has helped restore some of the confidence I had before this horrible disease began destroying my body. With greatest appreciation, Bee Spit.

I bought this on a trip to Charleston. I used it this morning and loved it. Wanted to use it again this evening and the lid will not come off. Unfortunately looking at reviews, it seems others are experiencing this same problem. Please fix your packaging!
Dec 29th 2017
A hand and paw saver in these cold dry winter months! Since all natural (and mostly organic) ingredients I can confidently use on both me and my dog!! Great product!!!
Dec 22nd 2017
I received this as gift and it is awesome! Feels wonderful on my hands that are constantly chapped due to hand washing as a nurse!
Dec 16th 2017
I bought this on a whim, while on vacation on Tybee Island (Savannah) Ga. I absolutely love this product. I use it every night at bed time. I like it for my hands, elbows, feet. Heck, I have even used it in my lips.
Sep 16th 2017
I bought this a few months ago and I am in love! I have awful eczema on my hands and this product is so great! It's soft and moisturizing and I've seen such an improvement when i use it. My tin is almost done and I will for sure be repurchasing this!! The one small downside (that I won't doc stars on) is the packaging. I see other customers have already commented on how it can be hard to open. I didn't have a problem for the longest time, then one day it got stuck, nothing I would do worked... until I took a literal tool to the lid to prey it off. Small setback, the product outshines this one downside. If the packaging ever changes I'll love it even more haha. Overall - I would recommend this product for sure!!!!
Aug 31st 2017
Great product! I use it on my heels, and it's been the best product I've found so far in healing and keeping them soft! Not sure why anyone is having a problem opening it...it just screws off and on.

It doesn't pop off, it unscrews. This might help someone else to get the tin open. I have a serious case of ecema on my hands and this feels good. We will see how it does in the long run.
Apr 15th 2017
I would love to be able to review this product but unfortunately im unable to open the tin. Rethink packaging on this one.
Mar 16th 2017
I honestly don't understand 3 stars for this product! I am in my 50's, and suffer from dryness of my hands. I have used more products that I can list..and this is one of the best! Yes, it's not lightweight. Yes it doesn't go on like a lotion..more like a lightweight petroleum product. But once applied..watch out! It absorbs in the skin quickly, and leaves the hands feeling protected and nourished. Nice clean scent. And my nails have grown faster and stronger with frequent use! Just love!
Mar 12th 2017
I love the smell and the way it makes my skin feel great
Feb 27th 2017
i love this product , tried accidentally , when my friend gave this to me and my heels are as soft as cotton now
Feb 21st 2017
I received a 2oz. tin of the Beeswax Salve and absolutely LOVE this product. I use it on my hands, cuticles, heels, legs, and wherever I am feeling a little dry. The minty aroma, the texture is so luscious!!! Just love it...I actually need a much bigger jar of this...what should I order???
Feb 19th 2017
I absolutely love this product! Working in an environment where hand washing is constant, this salve is a life saver. The size is perfect for pockets and easy access.
Jan 18th 2017
So i bought this a few months back. Used it daily on my chapped armpits, worked like a charm! But after showering one night I couldnt pop it open!! I havent used it in a month because i cant get the lid open!!!! CHANGE THE DESIGN OF THE CASE. GREAT PRODUCT, POOR PACKAGING
Dec 20th 2016
I bought this product at Marshall's many years ago in a larger size. I looked high and low for a replacement, because it is my only salvation during the harsh winter months. This product is excellent for the winter months, great for your heels during the summer and is overall a great product to use on those hard to moisturizer body parts.
Dec 14th 2016
This is the BEST hand product I've used. The product goes on a bit oily, but quickly penetrates through your skin. My skin feels super hydrated after using it. This is a must have especially during winter time. I use it on everything -- my nose, lips, sometimes even face!!
Nov 7th 2016
On a recent trip to Charleston I forgot to bring facewash, and an employee at SBC told me to try the salve. I put a little on a dry face before the shower (w/ makeup or w/o), scrub off with a wet washcloth and your face is literally glowing and moisturized for the rest of the day. I wear it as a night cream too! Such an underrated product.
Sep 3rd 2016
I work on an airplane, washing my hands often, so dryness is a real problem for me. This salve not only works great and soaks in quickly, it also has a very nice spearmint scent. I also work it into my fingernails, and after 20 years of dealing with a split nail, it finally grew back together! I don't know if it was this product, but I think it might be, as it's the only thing I've done differently lately. I will definitely keep a stack of these little cans handy!
Aug 14th 2016
This is the BEST for sunburns, cracked cuticles, heels, elbows. LOVE IT!
May 4th 2016
I highly recommend this product. All other hand salves don't moisturize and protect as much as Savannah Bee's. I use it every day and is a life saver during winter. Also, this works on injuries. I badly scratched my foot on coral while snorkeling. My foot never healed properly and every product I used wasn't working. The scars were painful and cracking. I tried the hand salve on my foot and, to my surprise, my scars healed!! I swear by this product and the rest of the Savannah Bee line. I don't use anything else!
May 1st 2016
Repaired my cracked and torn cuticles better than any other product that I tried. I recommend it!
Apr 6th 2016
I just had to tell you how much I love your products. I found you online while searching for products made with pure honey and beeswax for my husband's severely cracked fingers. Not something an avid guitar player suffers through quietly ... I ordered both the hand balm and the heel cream, and both are working wonders. I also ordered your lip balm which is healing lips that are Always chapped here in the dry Southwest, Albququerque. And as a treat, I ordered myself your travel sampler of lotions, which I just received, and had to test each one, hoping that the scents wouldn't be too much -- they're all absolutely wonderful! So thanks! And thanks for being Made in the U.S.A. also! I'll surely tell all my friends and family about your amazing products.
Feb 23rd 2016
This salve has the most lovely, clean scent, and it soothes dry hands instantly.
Feb 16th 2016
Amazing 5 star, washing hands with 2 in diapers left my hands rough and red. Tried others but this soothed and healed my hands. No more red knuckles for me.
Jan 23rd 2016
I love the minty smell of this and I love how it feels on my hands. It absorbs so nicely and leaves my skin moisturized. Will be ordering more!
Jan 6th 2016
This is by far one of my favorite Savannah Bee Company body care product. It is super moisturizing and a little really does go a long way. I use this on dry spots such as my elbows and heels. I love the small size because I can keep it my purse. I've even used it for chapped lips a time or too. I really enjoy the subtle lemongrass fragrance as well. I would recommend this product to anybody who experiences dryness on their hands, especially during the winter months.
Jan 5th 2016
I found this product at a Hospital gift shop and tried the tester on my nails and cuticles. By the time I got home, I noticed that my splitting nails were moisturized and the splits no longer visible and the cuticles were no longer ragged looking. I immediately went on line to see if I could get a bigger tin of the Beeswax Hand and Nail Salve. I found the 2 oz. tin and it lasts me for months. Highly recommended for using on dry hands, cuticles and nails.
Jan 5th 2016
I work on a farm. Great for chapped skin and dry nails.
Jan 4th 2016
Would highly recommend to anyone who gets dry skin on hands, especially in between fingers, throughout the winter months. If you're looking for a good moisturizer that absorbs quickly to wear year-round, THIS IS IT!
Dec 7th 2015
I bought the beeswax hand and nail salve in hopes that it would calm the eczema on my hands...luckily for me, it helped tremendously and in a very short period of time! I love that it goes on a little greasy but quickly absorbs into the skin so that I can go back to my normal routine quickly and with no worries that I'll get greasy fingerprints everywhere! I have tried many hand and nail salves and this one has definitely moved to the top of my list! Will definitely purchase again! Thank you Savannah Bee! :)

I am 60ish and my nails and hands are much younger looking using this daily

I always get these little cuts on the tips of my fingers. I have tried everything to get rid of them, nothing works. This stuff is amazing. I have only been using it for a couple of days and no more little cuts!
Sep 23rd 2015
I bought this salve when we visited Savannah and found the Savannah Bee Co Store, what a heavenly place!!! I absolutely love this salve. Actually I love everything I bought that day!! This is a wonderful feeling salve and smells so good too. It is a great moisturizer.
Sep 4th 2015
I don't know why Savannah Bee doesn't advertise for this...but this stuff is a miracle for mosquitoe bites! Rub some on the bite and the itch is gone almost instantly. I will never use hydrocortisone cream again!!

At age 66 and having tried without success dozens of products for dry splitting nails, I purchased Beeswax Hand and Nail Salve in a local RI food market. after only 2 weeks of nightly use my nails were split free. after 4 weeks they are noticeably stronger and longer and still split free. I love it and have purchased 2 more. Thanks!
May 21st 2015
I use this every night before bed! The company was fast to ship!
May 19th 2015
Best of all the many products I've used. I am a gardener and make pottery on the side. Very hard on the hands. this treatment takes care of splits, cracks, and roughness when used regularly. Wonderful stuff!
May 11th 2015
My hand are in acrylic, plaster, and gloves all day. This makes my hands soft and touchable again. The scent is stress releaving
Apr 7th 2015
I bought one at the store which everyone loved. I've had to order five more to give away because they keep taking mine!!!
Apr 7th 2015
Great for your cuticles! Massage it in every night and wake up with smooth cuticles and hands. Also use on my dry heels and it works wonders!
Mar 17th 2015
I make a device called a puck that is used to fill this product. I had this product laying around my shop as a manufacturing sample for 2 years when I decided to try same to see if it would help my very dry hands. WOW! I couldn't believe the difference this stuff made. Bees are our friends.
Mar 4th 2015
I have tried so many products for dry, brittle, ridged nails that snap off below the quick. I was stunned to find this product healed the nails, smoothed out the ridges and allowed me to have pretty nails again. No more splitting or cracking off at the quick. I use the salve at night and use the nail creme two or three times during the day. What a find!
Mar 3rd 2015
The salve is doing its work for dry hands and nails. It really nourishes the skin and leaves it smooth. a bit greasy at first but it soaks in well.

I used this on very chapped hands and saw a huge improvement in one day
Feb 15th 2015
I bought this product in Jan. the smaller version and I am in love with it. It smells wonderful and yes it is packed with moisture! I would recommend this product any day. And you only need a small amount to cover your hands. First time trying this and I am truly satisfied, ordering the bigger size now!
Jan 21st 2015
here in. N.H. We have long cold winter days, and our skin takes a beating from the weather.With animals outside and water to contend with, my hands get dry fast.i bought many of your products and decided to try one more to help with my hands. I am so glad I did.This salve really does go along way. I use it two times a day and I have had no issues with the cracking on my fingers.thank you.
Jan 9th 2015
I had a hard time opening the tin. My hand kept slipping off and I got very frustrated when the tin would not open. I thought it was just me, but I had many people try to open it. The grooves on the tin do not line up properly. I have to leave it almost open to be able to use the good stuff inside.
Jan 7th 2015
Stumbled across this product on vacation and so glad I did. My daughter has very dry cracked skin on her hands especially around her nails. I have tried countless products, this is the only one that produces a noticeable difference. I place socks on her hands after applying the salve and in the morning her hands are soft. Thank you for such a wonderful product.

Great gift for our Maine cousins
Dec 30th 2014
My nails and hands are amazingly improved. I am 64 so I am really happy that my hand are looking so good. Ohio thanks you
Dec 22nd 2014
I bought this salve about six months ago and I just love it. It appears slightly greasy initially but that quickly absorbs into my dry hands. It smells great and has worked miracles on my cracked finger tips and dry hands... I bought 6 of them for girlfriends this year for Christmas. Great product!
Dec 19th 2014
I tried on large mosquito bites and brought the swelling down and stopped the itching.
Dec 14th 2014
This is great and the hand creme is the only thing that has helped my hand excema- including perscription creams. I am telling everyone and giving your products as holiday gifts.
Dec 5th 2014
Everything about this product is perfect. The small tin is perfect for a stocking stuffer or just a "little something" for an office mate. It is easy to keep in my desk drawer and apply as needed during the day. It is not greasy, absorbs quickly, light fragrance is not overwhelming. This line is so much nicer than Burt's. I would highly recommend one for yourself and several to keep for last minute gifts.
Nov 21st 2014
I love this product. I actually combine it with the Beeswax hand cream and this is the only thing that I have found has help my extra dry hands. This is a must have product that will be a staple in my life.
Nov 20th 2014
Because I enjoy your honey, after seeing the reviews, I ordered the Beeswax hand & nail salve. The smell is amazing and the results are VERY positive on my nails. I just discovered that our large local grocery chain now carries some of your products.... the hand & nail salve and the lip balm. I also bought the balm last night and love it as well.
Nov 17th 2014
After discovering this product on a visit to Savannah, I will never be without it again! The application of Beeswax Hand and Nail Salve has totally changed the look and feel of my badly damaged nails and cuticles. The spearmint aroma often peeks the interest of those nearby and I am always willing to share the salve and tell them how terrific it is. When I one day misplaced my salve, I immediately went online and ordered three more so I have the product handy wherever I need it during the day. Great find! ( On a recent visit to a health food stor , I offered it to the owner so that he would be interested in ordering it for availability on Long Island.)
Nov 5th 2014
This is the best stuff ever for dry cracked hands and cuticle! Got it for a gift last year, use it everyday (still on the original can!) and ordered plenty for stocking-stuffers. I am a fan for life!
Nov 4th 2014
This product goes a long way. You just need a small amount and the results are amazing. The scent to very soothing - sometimes I open the container just for aromatherapy. My nails never looked and felt better.
Sep 16th 2014
Have never used a better product for nails & cuticles. With daily use, the results keep getting better!
Aug 31st 2014
Bought this randomly in a store in Rhinebeck New York. I have tried a number of cuticle and hand creams and this one is by far the best, and the scent is wonderful. I liked this product so much that I went on the internet to find the company's home page. I will be ordering regularly, for myself and as gifts. This is a real review, I have no connection to this company.
Aug 6th 2014
I bought this on a whim in a gift/garden store in Franklin TN. I've been looking for a new hand salve, as I'm a hand / manicure fiend - and wow, I'm impressed. The smell is phenomenal - I'd describe it as a bright sweet citrus scent. If you put too much of this salve on, it may feel greasy at first, but I find that it absorbs quickly. My hands feel incredibly soft and supple after using this, it even lasts s a few hand-washings. Will repurchase!
Aug 5th 2014
This is the best nail cream I've used....the perfect consistency, absorbs quickly and gets results!
Aug 3rd 2014
We had a family reunion in the OBX. My one daughter from FL stopped in Savannah on her way to the OBX and purchased some of your products including the Hand& nail salve. We were all trying it and were very impressed with all the products. The hand & nail salve really do the job. We were even using it on our lips. When I got home I placed my own order.
