Aunt Bea's Apiary

About Aunt Bea's Apiary:

We started working with bees in the fall of 2013. Although we had no beekeeping experience, we wanted to do something good for the environment. We plunged full steam ahead and purchased a small hobby farm, beekeeping supplies, and expanded our gardening endeavors. Working closely with nature has had a profound impact on us. We are seeing the Earth with a new set of eyes. Our planet is facing a pretty long list of challenges including pollution, global warming, water contamination, drought and of course, the staggering loss of our world’s pollinators. It is with great love and intent to make the world a better place that we have formed the 501c3 non-profit organization “Aunt Bea’s Apiary” to serve southeast Nebraska. On our farm, we have created an educational center for hosting field trips, community groups, and families who wish to learn more about how they can help the environment. Through these endeavors, we hope people will come to love and appreciate these fascinating insects as much as we do. Bees truly are an integral part of our food system and the survival of the human population.

General Practices:

We are a treatment free apiary. We do not use any chemicals in our beehives. We strive to use organic ingredients in our skin care products, but occasionally have to use conventional when organic is not available or is cost prohibitive.

Ingredients:

Honey: Our honey is completely raw and never heated. We do not pasturize. Your honey will contain particles of pollen and wax. The bees are our first priority and we extract only what is surplus ensuring they have plenty of honey to survive winter. Soap Ingredients: dandelion, olive oil, coconut oil, sunflower oil, jojoba oil, raw honey, beeswax, and shea butter. Skin Salve Ingredients: dandelion, olive oil, beeswax Lip Balm Ingredients: dandelion, olive oil, shea butter, beeswax

7482 3 Dandelion Beeswax Salve 2oz
$10.40 / tin 80% Organic non-refrigerated
This salve comes in a 2 ounce tin and is handmade in small batches using fresh picked and chemical free dandelions from our farm and wax from our bees. Our apiary is treatment free.

I purposefully leave essential oils out of this recipe as many people use it on their face. It has a natural smell, but you could easily add a few drops of your favorite essential oil for fragrance.

This salve is great for eczema or dry, chapped skin. It contains tamanu nut oil which is wonderful for anti-aging and acne or acne scarring. I use it on my face every night and have replaced all other moisturizers. It is also an excellent carrier for essential oils.

7480 1 Dandelion Beeswax Soap
$6.50 / bar 80% Organic non-refrigerated
Our soap is made in small batches using fresh picked and chemical free dandelions from our farm and beeswax/honey from our bees. Our pledge with all of our skin care products is to use natural ingredients (organic when available) and we never use synthetic or artificial fragrances or dyes. I add a small amount of pure lavender essential oil to my dandelion beeswax soap, but mostly the scent is just fresh and clean.

This soap is gentle and can be used for face and body. As with all natural bar soaps, it is best to use a well draining soap dish to prolong the life of your soap. Soap weighs approximately 4.5 ounces.

Ingredients:

dandelion
olive oil
coconut oil
