Through our blog and social medias pages, we will also aim to bring you the very best recipes and advice to help you and inspire you every step of the way.
A little about our name, the Spoiled Bee comes from the desire of protecting our beautiful bees and of course spoiling them! Did you know scientists agree that if all bees were to disappear from the face of the earth, humanity only has about 4 years left to live due to the lack of pollination? That is why we have decided to offer among many other products and ingredients, a range of bee products which also happen to have amazing properties for your body, skin and hair.
Now we know you are probably wondering how encouraging the commerce of bee products will help the bee population? Well, over the last few decades, bee products have unfortunately and often rightly been associated with harsh harvesting and mass production to keep up with the growing demand. We will never be doing that in a million (or trillion) years! We make sure that all our bee products are harvested in a sustainable and respectful manner by carefully selecting trusted bee keepers.
All the hives are located in flowery fields and forests, away from all modern pollution and chemicals and the beekeepers always make sure our bees have more than enough honey left for winter. The more hives, the more the bee population of the world will thrive once again so please help us help them!
Lots of Love
The Spoiled Bee Team Xx
