The Bee Square Story
When workmen asked my husband, “Did you know you have bees in your back yard?”, I never dreamed it would lead me to a new career in making body care products! We first tried to find someone who would remove the bees…we have all heard that bees are on the decline, and need to be protected…but we couldn’t find anyone willing to come do the job. So my husband started studying about bees, and eventually decided that we would try to capture them ourselves. Well, that was the beginning of a wonderful relationship between us and “the girls”! Soon, friends began calling us when they heard of bees that were “in the wrong place” and we began adopting them.
A happy byproduct of our new venture was the accumulation of beautiful golden beeswax! Desiring to be a good steward of that gift, I began wondering what I could do with it. I began to experiment with a recipe for a hand balm. You see, in my “other life” I work as a Speech Pathologist in a hospital among other places. Because I have to wash my hands so often, I had chronically and severely chapped skin, especially in the winter. As I perfected my recipe, I began using it at work. I soon noticed that not only were my hands no longer chapped and “furry”, but I was experiencing the best, softest skin of my life! I began sharing my cream with my co-workers, and their response was that I “should start to sell this stuff!” Well, I took that advice, and Bee Square Body Care was born! For those of you who wondered, I named my business Bee Square because that is what I named the plot of land where we keep our beehives! We enjoy going out to the Square on nice evenings to watch the bees flying in and out of the hives, bringing nature’s bounty. We still get much of the beeswax for Bee Square products from those very same hives!
Now the Bee Square line has expanded to include body scrubs, soaps, lip balms, and other products, all “using nature’s ingredients to refresh and beautify”. Each product is made by hand in small batches. I try to keep all of my products as natural as possible, because, well…I think God makes the best ingredients!
I hope you will enjoy using Bee Square Body Care products as much as I love making them!
