About six years ago I agreed to let a co-worker put a beehive on my family farm. I didn't plan to be responsible for it, but when life events kept him from tending to it, I became a beekeeper.
I found bee science and culture fascinating, and I soon began researching bees and attending workshops at The Ohio State University agricultural campus. Beyond enjoying the science, I found that tending the bees gave me time to reflect. It became a cathartic activity.
I also came to realize how connected the bees' world is to ours - any changes in our environment affect their environment as well. I began to think about the foods we eat, the chemicals we use, and the impact these factors have on bees and on us. That's when the idea hit me: I wanted to make natural skincare and hair products using honey, beeswax, and other ingredients that are good for us and our world.
This is the philosophy behind Beecology. Today my family and I produce a full line of natural products - lip balm, soap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and lotion - that help our customers keep their skin and hair healthy the natural way.
ReviewI love trying out new body and hair products because sometimes you find something that is really amazing. Beecology is just that. I never knew that bees could be such a wonderful tool for making things other than their simple honey. And who knew honey could make such wonderful shampoo?! I got to try the shampoo, conditioner, and a bar of soap and let me say that they all worked great! The soap left me feeling very clean and the hair care products are amazing. I barely had any tangles in my hair afterwards. I loved it so much that I am giving away a shampoo, conditioner, and bar of soap to one winner! Here's how to win:
