We are passionate about health! Protecting the bees is a MUST, which we believe can be acheived by avoiding pesticides, planting organic flowers and spreading awareness.
Bees are the most valuable pollinators, their fuzzy velcro-like bodies help them efficiently transfer pollen between the male part of the plant to the female part, allowing plants to flourish.

Trigona prisca, a stingless honeybee (Apidae; Meliponinae), is reported from Cretaceous New Jersey amber (96-74 million years before present). Occasionally, insects become trapped in tree resin which fossilised to amber, beautifully preserving them for eternity.
Humans have been using bee ingredient as sources of nutrition for at least 9000 years. A common fondness for honeybees goes all the way back to the Stone Age, according to a vast survey of ancient artefacts.
The Stone Age
Human use of honey is traced to some 8000 years ago as depicted by Stone Age paintings.
Ancient Egyptians bestowed their pharaohs the title "Bee King" (among others), thanks to the extensive beekeeping in Lower Egypt that kept the land flowing with honey.
Among the treasures discovered during the famous 1922 archaeological excavation of King Tutankhamun's tomb was a jar of honey.
Traces of the beeswax on more than 6,400 pottery pieces used by Neolithic farmers. The pottery could have been used to extract honey from plundered honeycombs or the wax itself would have proved useful as fuel for lamps.
Gathering honey from wild bee colonies dates even further back—with some of the earliest evidence recorded in a rock painting from around 6,000 B.C. in Valencia, Spain that depicts a honey hunter raiding a hive.
Brahmi, the Bee Goddess
India's oldest sacred book, the Rig-Veda, contains many mentions to bees and honey. This book was probably compiled between 2000 and 3000 BCE, and was written in Sanskrit. The Sanskrit word for honey is madhu, which is etymologically identical to the Greek methu and the Anglo-Saxon medu, or mead.
Propolis: a wonder bees product and its pharmacological potentials
Propolis was listed as an official drug in the London pharmacopoeias of the 17th century. Due to its antibacterial activity, in Europe propolis became very popular between the 17th and 20th centuries.
The bees need our help!
The decline in bees' diversity and abundance would have a serious impact on how the natural world functions, including our crops. Bees pollinate much of the food that makes our diets healthy and tasty – from the apple in our lunchbox, to the tomatoes on our pizza.
