There's no wonder there's a huge buzz currently surrounding bees – they are heroes. By executing a task that is vital to the survival of agriculture, pollination – and when one third of our global food supply is pollinated by bees, without them we’d BEE pretty hungry. But as their numbers dwindle due to man-made factors including the use of poisoning pesticides, destroying their habitats and climate change, we have a responsibility to be more environmentally conscious and help stop our planet’s bees decreasing any further.
It’s no secret that honey is one of the best health and beauty components out there, but of course we wouldn’t have access to this wonder ingredient were it not for bees. It’s packed full of antioxidants which help reduce the risk of heart disease and prevents nasty colds and flu by strengthening the immune system. But not only is it good for the health, honey is also great for the skin too, thanks to its antibacterial and antiseptic properties which keep pimples at bay.
With this in mind, The At Home Box Company's ‘Bee Happy’ box is celebrating the work of these hard-working creatures, because ultimately, if all the bees in the world die out, we will not survive. We’ve collaborated with a host of luxury home and beauty brands that are making a difference towards the future of bees, and making do-good, high-quality products in the process.
It wouldn’t be a 'Bee Happy' box without the golden good stuff, so we've included a unique box of London Honeycomb from the London Honey Company. Packed full of antioxidants, minerals and nutrients, it is derived straight from beehives on London rooftops and in wild urban corners. It can even work as an effective hayfever treatment.
We’ve also thrown in the perfect component for mixing and drizzling this on to your favourite breakfast dish, a kitsch honey stirrer that will look gorgeous in any kitchen, plus a little mini pot of honey to dip into. And where would we be without a stunning tea towel from Sophie Allport. Use this beautiful bee design tea towel to dry your hands after you indulge on your honey and honeycomb.
Subscribers to our Bee Happy box can also enjoy Reusable Waxed Food Wrap by The Beeswax Company, a beautifully printed wrap that's made from biodegradable wraps, and perfect for keeping food bowls and sandwiches fresher for longer. Sustainability is something we can all contribute to every day – whether that’s picking up rubbish you see on the street or switching to companies that offer recyclable or biodegradable products. Why do we have Plastic Free July - every month should be plastic free month!
Furthermore, beauty fans will love the Bee Happy hand cream from Beefayre, a hydrating lotion made with shea butter and vitamin E, and gently fragranced with essential oils to keep your hands baby soft all day.
