I once heard on the radio a talk show about bees that changed my life. On that day I decided to give bees a safe home in our backyard. We live in the World Heritage listed Blue Mountains, Australia. From that day my apiary grew. I have rescued wild swarms and given them new, safe homes in the Blue Mountains.
I have always been a keen gardener and used herbs in my everyday life. My grandmother (babushka) grew up in an orthodox family of Old Believers, living in the wilderness of the taiga in Far East Russia. All of her family had to rely on natural medicine in their every day life. All through her life babushka Sasha would collect and use herbs, make tinctures and salves to treat literally every ailment. I learnt my basics from her.
I infuse organic oils with herbs for extra potency, then blend them with beeswax and other carefully chosen oils, add honey and essential oils and package them in reusable containers. Whatever I do, I try to reduce my footprint and only use sustainable and reusable materials for packaging and mailing my products.
I hope you will enjoy my products, handmade with love, filled with the natural power of healing herbs and oils.
