Honey, Let’s Have an Eco Conscious Valentine’s Day in Sunnyside Calgary

February 12, 2015 (posted by Jennifer Campbell, Home Staging Calgary)

This year, I’m making more green choices. That includes celebrating an eco-conscious Valentine’s Day. Shopping close to my Sunnyside condo is an important part of that. And I have the perfect place to recommend, “honey”.

This time last year, I wrote about treating your Valentine to cupcakes, flowers or a massage from shops in Kensington, Calgary. Still a fabulous idea if I do say so myself.

And I’ve got another idea for you. I first wrote about this local “sweet spot” just before Christmas when I was in a baking mood and wanted to try a new sugar-free muffin recipe. Did you make some?

Well, instead of sugar, I used honey that I purchased from The Beehive in Kensington.

Of course, you could also buy some Alberta honey and bake your own goodies for your Valentine this year. But, you might consider some of the other wonderful non-honey items they offer too.

Here are three ideas for your own customized eco conscious Valentine gift:


  • Make your own massage kit, including a beeswax candle, Ylang Ylang Vanilla Air Mist (or whatever scent will set the mood you’re going for), and an essential oil Massage Bar.

  • For the man in your life, what about a bottle of Bay Rum foaming bath, either Beard Oil or Fine Shaving Soap, and a Lip Balm (made of beeswax, honey and essential oil) to keep his lips kissable.

  • And here’s an idea for the stressed and busy person on-the-go to let them know you’re thinking of them when you’re apart. Relax Remedy (easy to tuck in a purse or coat pocket and apply to temples when needed), Grapefruit Hand Sanitizer (alcohol free and gentle on your skin), and a Honey Face Mist (for a quick re-fresh).


With so many goodies at The Beehive – check it out and come up with your own creative combination. There’s plenty of eco conscious Valentine love to share in Kensington.
