Recently our founder Katie visited the Bee Museum in Rhodes Greece whilst on holiday. Exploring the bee gardens of Rhodian herbs and flowers she saw the bees worlds in transparent observation hives.

“If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.”

– ALBERT EINSTEIN

Katie brought back a few jars of Greek honey and some natural beeswax soap to add to our collection of Bee produce!

Here at Anu we are proud to stock the Neal’s Yard Remedies Bee Lovely Range. 3% of all sales from the range goes straight to charities that protect this humble, vital insect. To find out exactly how the Bee Lovely balm supports the bees, see their Save the Bees campaign here.
