What can I say? I love bees. If someone told me a year ago that I would be keeping bees, I would have thought they were crazy. Well here I am, raising bees, making beeswax candles and promoting education and welfare for our fuzzy friends.
You might have heard that bees are not doing so well these days. That they are disappearing and dying off. It’s true. There is a very serious thing happening all over the planet. It’s the wake up call for the world. It’s time we all took a really close look at how we are treating the one thing that nurtures us and allows us to live with her and on her – Mother Earth.
The honeybees are telling us loud and clear, that it’s high time we changed our ways and get back to living in sync with Nature, not against her.
Our survival is dependent on the honeybee’s survival. This is no joke or an exaggeration. They die – we die. It’s as simple as that.
Honeybees are responsible for ONE THIRD of all our food on the planet. Not only are they super pollinators, but honeybees also provide a very needed elixir for us – honey. The amazing, medicinal properties of honey are just beginning to be talked about again. In the past, many people knew about the magical, healing properties of honey. Honeybees naturally create products that are crucial to their health as well as ours, except royal jelly. DO NOT BUY OR USE ROYAL JELLY PLEASE!!! The value of royal jelly to humans does not constitute the way it’s harvested. There is no humane way of harvesting royal jelly and the queens are being raised and killed by the millions to appease our vanity. There are many other natural products that are grown sustainably that do the same or better job as royal jelly.
I believe these hard-working little animals deserve our utmost respect and care. So next time you come across a little honeybee buzzing around doing her important work, don’t be afraid, send her your love. She deserves it.
To help the honeybee, you can plant some flowers, fruits and vegetables in your yard. NO PESTICIDES PLEASE!

I’m holding a frame of live honeybees. They are really very gentle when they don’t feel threatened.
