Our purpose is simple: to inspire honest, healthy living and nurture a greater awareness for saving our bees! That is why our all natural propolis spray is made with high quality propolis (95% extract!) that is sustainably hand-harvested by experienced beekeepers in Canada.
One of our core values is to practice, share and promote sustainable beekeeping. What exactly does that mean? We put the bees first in the process of making our products and want our bees and customers alike to thrive so we ensure that our bees are healthy, in safe locations and we never over harvest leaving our bees with plenty of honey, pollen and propolis of their own.
Through our partnership with the Canadian Honey Council and creating a platform for education and awareness regarding the plight of the bees, we feel that with your help, we can really make a difference. Act today!

For Carly it all started with a semester abroad in Europe. Four months of sightseeing and wine drinking finally caught up with her in Florence, where her tonsils ballooned to the size of a meatball. Facing the prospect of cutting her trip short for surgery, she desperately searched for a less extreme solution.
With her chipmunk cheeks filled with gelato (her stop-gap remedy of choice) she stumbled across an Italian pharmacy full of wonderful bee products. She somehow managed—between her swollen mouth and broken Italian—to communicate her symptoms to the pharmacist, and he suggested propolis. Skeptical, but willing to try anything, Carly forked over €7 and squeezed a few drops. Within days, her tonsillitis was in retreat and she was taking in the art at the Uffizi Gallery.
Daniel has always been active. From the age of four, he was skiing, swimming, playing hockey, baseball, soccer, and basketball. As a kid, Daniel was able to get away with a sub-par diet, but as he got older the effects of poor eating and an unhealthy lifestyle caught up with him. It seemed like he was always sick. To get through the demands of law school, he started popping cold medicine on the regular like it was his job. The over-the-counter meds masked his symptoms in the short term, but when they wore off, his symptoms came back worse than before.
WORD FROM OUR FOUNDER
I like natural things. I like hiking and getting lost in nature and I like my foods and health remedies without chemicals. But I had a dilemma: where do I find natural health products that actually work?
My inspiration for creating Beekeeper’s Naturals came about organically. I wasn’t planning to start a company, I was simply looking for a natural health product that actually delivered. In that quest, I encountered all of the newest magical health elixirs but ended up spending a lot of money on ineffective health-store powders, or over-the-counter synthetic immune boosters that temporarily dampened my symptoms but never got rid of them.
Science is amazing. It can cure horrible diseases, cancers and disabilities. But what about your sore throat or stubborn cold? At Beekeeper’s we love science – we use science to formulate and test our products obsessively. But we also think Mother Nature is pretty incredible. Bees are nature’s consummate workers and the ultimate team players. Thinking back now, it should have been obvious that bees were the answer. Bees naturally produce propolis to protect themselves and their hives from bacteria. You can think of propolis as the immune system of the hive and a key factor in overall hive health. Bee propolis is nature’s ultimate protector, showing powerful healing properties for bees and luckily us humans too! It’s a must for anyone leading an active lifestyle and who hates getting sick. It’s simple. It’s natural. And it works. At Beekeeper’s Naturals, we are dedicated to sustainably sharing the world of “beegan” superfoods with you to keep you functioning at your best.
