The Secret life of bees

What do the bees know that we don't? The Queen Bee has spoken and demanded all of her worshippers to hunt and harvest the very essence of one of nature's most beautiful gifts; the flower. Bring it back to my Queen-dom and feed me the essence of Life itself.And so they go... to travel miles upon miles to dance in whispers and hums on delicate flowers all the while and unwittingly introducing each one to another and creating magic and love all around them.There is something so sensual in the way that honey drips and oozes with it's amber mystique and naturally sweet nectar.
Sometimes nature can produce the best ingredients for health and well being. Honey is incredible when taken internally for a myriad of ailments. It also is extremely beneficial in skin care. One of the keys to skin care in keeping it soft , supple, and glowing is moisture!Simple Hydration! Honey is a Humectant- a substance that absorbs or helps another substance retain moisture. It is also oozing with antioxidants which help guard against uv rays and aids in the cell regeneration and skin renewal. It is also beaming with it's very own anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties due to the extremely high content of natural sugars and super low content of water.

For centuries women have been using honey in skin, hair, and over all beauty recipes. Even more than beneficial when taken internally. I use the raw and unfiltered honey in a variety of my products and bases to bring the extreme benefits to your gorgeous skin. You could also treat yourself to a honey mask at least 2 times a week. All you need is honey and time and you will have very very soft skin with all the suppleness you could desire. Don't be surprised if it starts to glow a bit and people start telling you that you are radiating a light and golden aura that they have never seen before!

Next time you have a visiting bee in your house, think about how hard he has probably worked today to help keep The Queen herself, and your skin for that matter, happy, and just gently shoo him out of a window or door and send him on his busy little way!
