I’ve been spending a lot of time with bees lately. sitting with them, nurturing them, learning from them... I watch them fly in from my windows and doorway, always open, welcoming them in to rest. They always come. They know they’re safe here. I feed them their own sweet honey, brush off the dust from their wings, and if it’s their time, I hold space for them while they peacefully transition. I wonder how far they’ve flown before finding refuge on my skin. I wonder how many flowers they’ve kissed before dancing among mine or how many fruits have been born from their lovely visits. I wonder if they’ve lost their hives and now find themselves alone. Perhaps they got abandoned in the swarm or left because it was their time. They are the most altruistic of us all, leaving their hives when death nears so as not to burden their brothers and sisters. They live in a state of total devotion, sacrificing themselves to protect their families and spending their waking moments feeding the world. To all the pollinators in the world, thank you. Thank you for feeding me, for allowing me to learn from you in such profound and intimate ways. For teaching me the beauty of selfless devotion, for healing me with your honey, pollen, and your presence. Dear bees, I’m sorry that we have destroyed your fields, poisoned your flowers, and taken your honey with no regard. I’m sorry we have learned to fear you, swatting as you search for new places to spread love to. Please forgive me. I will never again run from you. I will never again hide. Dear bees, I love you. You are safe with me. You may come here to rest and to drink, always.
Raw honey is honey that hasn’t been heated or pasteurized, and it contains natural vitamins, enzymes, powerful antioxidants, and other important nutrients. Raw honey has anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal properties, and promotes digestive health. 🍯

Now this is a nectar flow 😍 What is a nectar flow you ask?.... It is the time when bees have ready access to abundant resources, allowing them to dramatically accelerate the creation of honey within the hive. 🍯☀️ So, the honey flow is less about honey actually flowing and more about bees having the opportunity to collect nectar to support them creating their honey 🐝🌻

The beginning of a beehive! This is called a ‘festoon’ of bees and it’s actually how bees work together to build the amazing honeycomb structure of a beehive. They link their legs together to form a little living chain of bees and the exact reason why they do this remains a mystery. Some people think they’re doing this as a way of measuring the distance they need to build comb, or to act as scaffolding to pass wax from one bee to another, or to raise the temperature inside the comb construction zone to make the beeswax malleable, or even to create blueprints for future honeycomb. What do you think the bees are doing?

A swarm landed in a tree and built this beautiful honeycomb 😍 . . Coming from the honeycomb of the honeybee, beeswax is a completely all natural substance straight from Mother Nature. Honeybees consume honey and pollen to produce the wax. It takes about eight pounds of honey to produce just one pound of beeswax.
