It's hard to put into words how much I appreciate Emily and Handmade by Bumble, but I have to try!
I found Emily when my son was 1.5. We were using cloth diapers and he had a bad rash at the time. I had tried everything and nothing seemed to help. I figured out some issues on the diaper end, but Emily's Diaper Balm was the only thing that calmed his rash down in the meantime. After the first couple of applications, he would run to me when he saw it in my hands. So I know that he also knew it was helping. We continued to expand our Bumble stash and now I will not be without the First Aid Salve, Foaming Baby Wash and Whipped Body Butter. As well as the Diaper Balm, of course.I feel so good about the mainstream (low quality) products that we have been able to replace. Not only are the ingredients Emily uses clean, but they are GOOD for us. I have been amazed time and again by these powerful little herbs. In Emily's hands, they seem unstoppable. We've seen relief from eczema, rashes, my anxiety, sore throats, and so many more issues. When we started our cloth diaper journey, I also started trying to find deodorant, body wash and face wash that I felt good about. I spent a lot of money on a lot of products that just did not work. I was about to
give up when I happened upon Handmade by Bumble. Just in time! Can I say it again? These products WORK. So I have been spending less money and receiving far superior quality for it. It is a win/win all around.
I hope you will join the Bumble Family. You won't be sorry!

Bumble found me at one of the most stressful times of my life. My baby boy was battling eczema and we were getting nowhere with doctors and dermatologists. After lots of research, I realized it was diet. But, by the time we pinpointed it, his skin was in terrible shape. I’m talking oozing.
Bumble to the rescue with the chamomile milk & oat bath, diaper balm, baby oil, and hard working salve.
Since that time, I have become…passionate? Obsessed? HEALTHIER!!
Handmade by Bumble products are almost exclusively the only health & beauty products that come into our home.
First Aid Ointment, Sun Butter, Stress & Anxiety Relief, Bedtime Bliss Bath, Diaper Balm, Baby Oil, Baby Wash, Face Scrub, Gentle Calm, Beard Oil, Bee Ageless Facial Oil, Fire Cider, PAIN RELIEVING MASSAGE OIL, Teas, ALLERGY RELIEF, Toothpaste, Soap and LAVENDER BODY BUTTER.
I’ll never use anything else as long as these are available, and this list is not exhaustive.
What started out as a last ditch effort to heal my poor boy’s skin before resorting to steroids turned into a revolution of my life. I’ve always been keen on nature and limiting toxins, but I was always more keen on the convenience of Dollar General, etc. I promise you, these products are worth any extra money and the waits for stocking and shipping.

•Ethically made with love.
•You can read the labels.
•The stuff works magically.
•You’re supporting a mama who supports so many other small businesses.
•You can trust the ingredients.
•Small batch allowing products to evolve and improve.
•And, IT ALL SMELLS SO GOOD haha
•I could probably write a review this long for each individual product.
•I’ll spare you and say “try for yourself.”
•You will not be disappointed (but, you probably will become addicted).
How did I forget to mention the customer service? Bumble owner, Emily, makes herself as accessible as humanly possible to answer questions, offer advice, and support her customers. She pays great attention to detail. She is a wealth of knowledge and it continues growing. When formulating products, her customers’ needs and opinions are of highest importance. Shipping is ridiculously quick. She works to ensure that everything is efficient so that prices remain affordable. She is thoughtful, generous, and trustworthy.
Handmade by Bumble has literally changed my skincare and body routine! Emily makes some of the best products. Some of my favorites- the honey and oats face scrub, the body butter has literally been a lifesaver for my dry and itchy skin, and the Hibiscus Rose oil has helped my face so much! Her makeup remover makes taking off my makeup a breeze. I love the Bedtime Bliss bath soak for my kids, and the body wash for baby's sensitive skin. I always thought natural products were overly priced and got used up quickly but, with Emily’s products, I feel like I’m getting my money's worth. They’re reasonably priced and last such a long time! My daughter loves her “raindrops” aka the Gentle Calm glycerite for kids! I could go on and on. If you're a newbie to natural products and trying to find stuff to start slowly, I definitely recommend Bumble as your starting spot!
Bumble is a safe haven of safe, effective, and affordable multi-purpose products that have streamlined and simplified what we use as a family. We now have natural yet effective ways to handle colds, anxiety, hormonal imbalances, flaky scalp, dry skin, adult acne, diaper rash, muscle pain, brain fog and adrenal fatigue, PMS, prenatal and postpartum needs, and so much more!
I've researched and tried many all natural (and often greenwashed or overhyped) brands. Sadly, I found most brands were either not truly safe or effective and the few that were weren't affordable for us or offered a limited variety. Finding Bumble was like hitting the jackpot! The amount of love, hard work, research, and careful attention to detail that Emily Rubeo pours into all her handmade Bumble products is just mind blowing. If you haven't tried Bumble before, I hope you do because you're missing out on all kinds of goodness!
If you’re looking for quality, natural products that actually work, look no further. It brings me great peace of mind each time I try something new, that all products offered at Handmade by Bumble have been carefully crafted over time and tested by Emily’s own family. My family has swapped out many “mainstream” products, and we couldn’t be happier. We have stronger immune systems, clearer skin, and the proper “tools” we need when we are feeling under the weather. Emily pours her heart into both her business and sharing her knowledge of living a more natural lifestyle, and this makes what she offers so much more valuable. She has cultivated an amazing community of people who all have come together for their love of her products and I hope you’ll give them a try too.
