Solid Perfume - APIS, a scent for all sexes
Our handmade solid scent raises funds for bee health, 10% of proceeds are donated to the Pollinator Partnership.
As you wear and smell this heavenly scent throughout the day, you mimic the actions of the bee whose instincts are driven by scent.
APIS is a scent for all sexes, it's Rigaud Cypress scent is clean, bright, and earthy. APIS is made of: 50% NOLA Beeswax (from Beehives in the 9th Ward) & 50% Refined Beeswax, Fractionated Coconut Oil, & Rigaud Cypress Scent.
Apply the solid scent on your skin as you wish, the beeswax base also acts as a moisturizer. The travel tins make it easy to bring along in your bag as well as to reuse throughout the day if you please.
Handmade in New Orleans by me.
1 of every 3 bites of food that we take requires pollination. Poor bee health is a rising epidemic, due to industrial farming & pollinating practices, disease, and pesticides.

**Invoices are not included with packages due to many orders being sent as gifts, however you will receive an email receipt in your order notification email.
**Orders sent First class USPS don't automatically include insurance. Insurance is required in order to replace orders that have gone missing during shipment (a thankfully unusual occurrence). Priority USPS, UPS, or FedEx orders do include insurance for the value of your order. USPS claims can be filed here, FedEx here, & UPS here. Heads up that FedEx & UPS claims are far easier to submit and to actually receive payment for damaged/lost goods.
**Returns/exchanges - Unfortunately these are not possible due to the hygienic nature of the soaps and body care products. Made to order items are also not possible to return or exchange. For the rest of our items, if items are not damaged, an exchange is possible within 14 days of purchase with proof of purchase. As a small business, we are not able to pay for return shipping.
**Shipping Internationally: We are happy to ship to you wherever you are in the world! Just select your country from the list and when shipped via USPS, estimate 7-15 days for arrival. If shipping via USPS, tracking and insurance are sometimes unavailable, so we are not able to guarantee your package against being lost or stolen. (We haven't had any issues to date, knock on wood.)
**We frequently use upcycled shipping boxes & protective shipping materials, including bubble wrap, compostable shipping peanuts, & recyclable air pockets.
**Sales or discounts do not include gift sets, books, first aid kits, or Little Sun Products.
**Glycerin Soap - High quality glycerin soap naturally attracts moisture from the air. If your soap has a little of the protective waxed shipping tissue stuck, give your Bird or Bar an initial wash, this is completely normal for a handmade soap. The BirdSoaps are carefully wrapped in 100% recycled tissue paper to protect their shape during shipping.
