About Us


Medicine Mama’s Apothecary believes that nature has the answer to restoring and maintaining healthy, beautiful skin.

Products for the skin should be pure and free of synthetic chemicals that frequently irritate the skin and exacerbate the very problems that they are intended to solve. We are passionate about making the highest quality natural skincare possible, which is why we manufacture all of our organic creams with the most medicinally active raw materials from around the world, in small batches at our own boutique apothecary, under the meticulous care of our artisan masters.


Donna Steinmann, a 20 year published expert in natural health and skincare, wanted an effective, organic skincare solution for herself and her family. She was unable to find a single product that met her high standards of purity and efficacy, so she set out to create her own.

Her instincts and background as a natural health practitioner led her to the curative powers of the oldest living organisms on earth, ancient trees and their relationship with the immortal bee.


After four years and several hundred experiments, Donna perfected the formula, temperatures and curing times to bind the ancient forest honey and propolis together in a 28 day Flavonoid Compound curing phase, creating Melexylem: a super concentrated substance that is far more than the sum of its parts with extremely heightened prebiotic, anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Donna blended her miracle Melexylem in organic oils and nutrient rich hive products and named it Sweet Bee Magic. This miracle cream became an instant favorite and quickly grew by word of mouth from friends and family into being carried by over a thousand of the finest health food stores in the US.


Manufacturing has long since moved out of Donna’s kitchen and into our state of the art, certified organic apothecary, but every batch mirrors the perfect process that Donna discovered for making Sweet Bee Magic. Meticulous care is taken in the labor intensive process that requires constant attention to temperatures, curing time, blending, warming and pouring procedures.

Our master artisans carefully measure each ingredient, then delicately blend the materials together, all the while making sure that the batch stays at the perfect golden temperature to ensure the enzymes and plant esters are preserved during preparation.


We source the highest bio-active hive products available: propolis from deep in an ancient forest, where the rich enzymatic, resinous heart blood of immortal trees is harvested by the honeybee as medicine for their hive. Raw honey from a village in Brazil that is farmed sustainably, processed gently to retain all of honey’s natural healing enzymatic action and purchased at fair trade prices to help support the village. Organic beeswax sourced from the US and abroad, depending on the floral field, harvest times and organic certifications.
