More COS Spotlights...From a dream to sweet reality, Beatrice Dixon, founder of The Honey Pot Company, has turned her literal dream into an empire."It all happened when I woke up from the dream with my ancestor and wrote down the list of ingredients she told me to put together. I made the formula and within a few days, my symptoms went away. That’s when I knew I was onto something special. I really knew that I had a real business when I made 600 bottles of wash and sold them all at The Bronner Bros hair show in Atlanta in 2014. That was the beginning of The Honey Pot Company." Honey Pot Company introduces accessible, sustainable, biodegradable, and 100% cruelty-free feminine care products. "We first launched in 2014. We had sold out of 600 bottles of wash at the Bronner Bros hair show and we knew we had a company. We launched in a few small local stores here in Atlanta and two or three local Whole Foods. I was driving and saw a light post with a band flyer on it and the name of the band was The Honey Pot Band. I just loved the name."

Beatrice expressed that she suffered from vaginosis which inspired the company. "One of my favorite sayings is “Necessity is the mother of invention.” The Honey Pot Company came into existence solely because I could not find a remedy that worked. I had tried everything and nothing else did the trick so I had to take it upon myself to create something that eventually led to the launch of a company and changed my life.

BV (bacterial vaginosis) is a very common vaginal infection. It occurs when there is a pH imbalance internally. A healthy vagina lives between 3.5 and 4.5 on the pH scale. This range is acidic – it’s the same pH as a glass of red wine. The reason why an acidic vagina is healthy is that it keeps the overgrowth of bad bacteria down and keeps infection at bay. Unfortunately, things like stress, sex, diet, tight clothing, and even laundry detergent can cause a pH imbalance which leads to odor, itching, inflammation, and irritation. I was diagnosed with it when I first started having classic symptoms."

Beatrice is inspiring people all around the world to follow their dreams, believe in their vision- and most importantly, love and take care of themselves." I spend time meditating and reading a lot of good books on self-care and stress relief and maintaining a good sense of self. I also take long hot showers daily and I light incense and I listen to good music and I go see live bands and artists that I love. I eat amazing food and travel. These are all self-care necessities for me." can learn more about Beatrice's journey at this year’s Circle of Sisters. an annual tradition for more than 20,000 Sisters where they build community, have celebrity encounters, create engaging workshops, watch empowering panels, and show all day in our curated marketplace.
