From the apiary to the extraction plant
then into beautiful bee products
At the Apiary
At present we have apiary site within close reach of our Brisbane extraction plant. Our sites have been chosen for their floral resources to give the bees a variety of flowering plants. We farm our bees from the beautiful D'Aguilar mountain ranges to the Morton Bay coastline.

Bees release pheromones which trigger an almost immediate response in other bees. The smoke mask's the 'danger' pheromones so they are easier to work.
Inspecting the brood for pest and disease is an important part of beekeeping.

There is a lot of love that goes into our herbal-infusions. Firstly we grow as many herbs as possible so we benefit from freshness and pesticide free herbs. Once picked they are dried then infused in oils for four to six weeks. After straining through muslin cloth the butters and our beautiful chemical free beeswax is added to create the wonderful nurturing balm just for you.
