Killer Bees Honey works with a local husband and wife team to create our beauty care products. Using several ingredients directly from our hives, Wayne and Julia handcraft natural soaps, lip balms, and hand salves for our customers.
The Beauty of Propolis
All of our body care products include propolis - an ingredient with known health benefits dating back to biblical times. Ancient Jews wrote of tzori (propolis) as a medicine. The Egyptians used propolis in cosmetics and for medicinal and embalming purposes. Persians and Romans administered it as both an antiseptic and as an antibiotic. From supporting the immune system to fighting cancer, infections, or treating minor burns, propolis is a powerful resin created by bees to protect their hives that has numerous health benefits for us humans.
