Several years ago Mike planted some blueberry bushes on his property. After several weeks of the bushes not growing he did some research and discovered that the answer to his problem might be bee hives. The bees would pollenate the blueberries and help them grow.
While the blueberries never took off Mike found that he loved hanging around the hives, watching the bees work and sharing the benefits with his family and friends. He began selling honey then developed an amazing lip balm that was sold locally in a few shops.
What Mike then discovered is that most skin care products were made with harsh chemicals that not only damaged the skin but also were not responsibly created. He then decided to marry his passion for beekeeping with his desire to create the best skin care products on the market.
Bee&You was launched in March of 2017 featuring a full line of luxury soaking salts. Mike has since enhanced his amazing lip balms to come in six different flavors. They are truly the best lip balm you will ever use! Now with the addition of our body scrub, facial moisturizer, body butter, grooming oils, hair & body oils, facial oil and more the vision that began with a blueberry bush has now become full line of premium skin care products
All of the wax, honey and pollen used in our products is still harvested by Mike himself from the hives on his property. Most of our products are created right here in Frankfort, Illinois using American made ingredients.
