Hello there. Thanks for popping over. Do come in and take a look at our:-
HONEY, SOAPS, SHAMPOO BARS, LIP BALMS, BATH BOMBS AND BEESWAX WRAPS HANDMADE WITH STUFF OUR BEES DON'T NEED
Every sale helps us keep happy, healthy bees as well as improving our smallholding as a home for all pollinators.
CREATING A BUZZ
We are just two people who set off a few years ago to improve our smallholding for the benefit of all pollinators. Zena, who is the Zee in ZeezBeez, is the soap Queen and Colin does his very best to not get in the way. We found there were so few bees and butterflies around despite living in the middle of the countryside. We have limited the cutting of our hedges and planted to encourage the creatures back and things are steadily improving, which is wonderful to see.
We then decided to complete the circle by adding a beehive. Now we love bees so much that we have added further hives and want to create a sustainable little business bringing you things made from stuff the bees don't need.
Now we have loads of butterflies flapping about and all kinds of bees buzzing around Bouchland Farm - here's a picture of Mavis going about her buzziness.
ZeezBeez uses natural products from hives full of happy bees that eat their own honey, have not been treated with chemicals and are kept with the intention of letting them do what they want as far as possible – they know best! (Please click the Beekeeping tab to find out more about 'our partnership with the bees).
BEE NICE TO OUR WORLD - in progressing the health and happiness of our bees we have realised that we can contribute to the move towards being kinder to mother Earth. Our wish is to convert people from plastic packaged products to using natural, handmade soap and shampoo bars. We try to keep the prices as fair as we can to encourage such a change, whilst sustaining ourselves. Our bars have so much goodness in them that we usually find customers no longer need to rely so much on other expensive products (often in plastic). This can make them cost effective. We don't buy plastic packaging, but we quite often re-use it. We are also the first UK certified palm-oil free soap company in the UK, which you can read about via a separate tab. We now have a bee in our bonnet about this issue and will always be looking for, and receptive to, ways to do better.
