For over twenty years we have been intimately involved with the amazing little honeybee. Initially it was a hobby, producing honey and beeswax. But the part-time fascination blossomed into a full-time relationship. The discovery of Galen’s 1700 year-old recipe for a beeswax skin crème and its success in helping difficult skin problems introduced us to Apitherapy, the medicinal use of the honeybee products.
Our small family business, Beelief Botanics, run by Tina and Ben Drakes, is dedicated to producing handmade, all-natural therapy and cosmetic cremes, using honeybee products and floral waters, with organic and botanical essential oils. Over the past two decades, we have developed our extensive Apitherapy range, which now includes Salves, Tinctures, Balms, Capsules, natural cosmetics and daily care products, and Api-herbals, the powerful combination of botanical honeys and beehive products, Royal Jelly, Propolis, Wildflower Pollen and Bee Venom.
Through our work, we hope to keep the art and tradition of Apitherapy alive and moving forward with the demands of life in the twenty first century.
We would like to introduce you to the magical world of the honeybee and all that she has to offer us.
Through Beelief Botanics Apitherapy web-site we aim to give you an insight into this long-established, alternative therapy and the knowledge, wherever possible, to make an informed choice about how to promote and restore good health and to have a long and active life.
