How To Make Lip Balm Using Beeswax

I am writing this post a few months after we had made the lip balm, because life has a way of making time zoom past you. It is a fortunate thing because now I can give you an honest review of the lip balm Rachael and I made from our bee's wax. We had gotten this...

How to Clean Beeswax

There are plenty of different ways to clean the beeswax that you harvest from your bees, and after Rachael did a lot of research and YouTube watching, we decided the easiest method for us was to filter is through very fine cheesecloth in hot water. It's a bit time...

The Honey Of Our Labor

I am not a patient person, so beekeeping can be a bit trying for me. You can't rush a bee to do anything. Have you ever tried? Trust me, it does not end well for you or the bee. So I have accepted that there are some things I will have to wait for. For example, wax...

No Quite Thirty Pounds

Ohhh The Relief…

As Katrina has already shared with you in the previous post, I was stung multiple times the other day when we ventured into the hive. I take full responsibility. I was a little over confident thinking I could just mosey on in there with a short sleeve t-shirt on. Well...

A Beeutiful New Water Bottle

I received this cute little S'ip by S’well water bottle as a Mother’s Day gift from my son. I love that it has little honey bees on it. I try to use reusable water bottles whenever possible so this was a perfect gift for me. We are not paid to do reviews of products,...

Time For A Favorite… Burt’s Bees

As if Burt's Bees isn't awesome enough, (I'm addicted to their Beeswax Lip Balm with peppermint), they are currently doing a Bring Back The Bees campaign. For every purchase of one of their limited edition lip balms or for every "b"-less tweet with #BringBackTheBees...

Pollination Poster by Claire Jones

Rachael found this poster by Claire Jones, and I am in love. I have been using it as a reference while at the nursery picking out seeds that attract bees. It is available on Claire's Etsy shop The Garden Diaries.  Click here to view this...
