Summer Time and the Living's BEE-zy

Summer is here Bae- bee!! Time for fresh summer fruits, warm evenings, and getting outside to enjoy some fresh air! What's not to love?!?! Summer brings days at the beach, lazing in the sun, and soaking up some rays! While we are all being sun safe, it's easy to still get a little bit "over cooked" out there. Manuka Honey is a fantastic remedy for an after sun solution. Not only does manuka honey have anti-inflammatory properties, which can help ease the sting, it naturally draws moisture to the skin which aids in healing sunburn and restoring the skin. It's pretty fantastic stuff! And while we are on the subject of AMAZING Manuka Honey remedies for Summer, it is the perfect remedy for those pesky insect bites. Not only for it's anti-inflammatory properties, but also its antibacterial properties, starving off infections and yukky germs.

And how about those Summer cocktails?? Never fear, taken internally, Manuka Honey has antioxidants that help neutralize the effects of over indulgence, and the natural fructose gives you the wee "sugar hit" that gives you a bit of pep in your step as you tackle the morning after!!! A great way to get the Manuka Honey down, is a delicious Sunny-Honey Smoothie. It is filled with all the antioxidant goodness to keep you trucking on this Summer!

Milk got your Goat?

Milk got your Goat?

Goats milk is one of our lesser highlighted ingredients, but boy does it have some amazing benefits for skin!

Goats milk is high in fatty acids, which help to maintain skins moisture and prevent irritation. It is also high in Vitamin A, a fat-soluble vitamin, known to have anti-aging properties.

Goats Milk also contains Alpha-Hydroxy-Acids (AHAs), which are commonly used to treat skin conditions such as scars, hyerpigmentation, and age spots, due to the natural exfoliating properties. Lactic Acid is one of these (AHAs) which has been shown to gently remove the dead skin cells, creating a more youthful complexion. Lactic Acid also helps to remove excess oils and grime that clog pores, causing acne.

Our soaps contain Goats Milk, with these amazing skin benefits in mind. A gentle cleanser, and a fantastic support for a healthy skin barrier, to keep skin looking bee - autiful!

What's the buzz with the bees?

What's the buzz with the bees?

It's been a decade since U.S beekeepers raised the alarm on the decline of 1000's of hives of honey bees, but it quickly became clear that this was not only a U.S problem, but a worldwide situation. Even more alarming, was that it was soon realized that not only honey bees were affected, but populations of wild bees were declining too!

Losing bees is not only tragic for them, but it has tragic consequences for us too. Bees pollinate up to a third of our edible crops, an industry valued at around $168 billion worldwide each year.

Since the alarm was first raised, many countries have created new methods to keep track of their bee stock, resulting in increased research and data around the health and well being of bees.

The upside of this is that there is now more understanding around the collapse of bee colonies, however, it is now clear that this is a complex problem with many contributing factors. Although it is not unsolvable.

For all bees, foraging and pollinating is a hard life. It takes huge amounts of energy to travel, often long distances, carrying nectar and pollen to the hive. It takes memory, spatial awareness, and finely tuned senses to be able to do this. However, environmental factors such as diesel fumes and pesticides, can inhibit the bees ability to safely make it back to the hive, and when they are unable to do so, they are as good as dead.

Climate change also factors into the cause, as it interferes with the relationship between bee and plant and can disturb the bees nutrition.

So What Can we do?

Planting plenty of bee friendly plants in close proximity to each other can provide more opportunity for pollination. Keeping these plants free of chemicals and pesticides creates a healthy and safe haven for bees.

Providing a bee bath is another easy step to help the bees to keep going. A shallow bath or dish with some stones to rest on will do just perfectly. A safe place for bees to hydrate and rest while making their long trips can be hugely beneficial to their survival.

There are also loads of non-profit organizations that work to help the survival of bee colonies, that you can donate to. Our pick is, of course, beeinformed.org
