Simply Bee is a family orientated business! Our dad, Derick Hugo started with beekeeping in 1954 and kept it as a hobby that grew into a business in 1994 when he and our mom, Marie returned to Hopefield to retire. Pierre took over from Dad in 2008 with the honey and bees. After much research and many studies we started Simply Bee Natural Beeswax Products. Simply Bee Natural Beeswax Products was founded on the 23rd of March 2011. At Simply Bee, we maintain the highest standards of natural beeswax products. Primitive people recognised and used beeswax and honey as an antiseptic
aid for healing wounds. The honeybee secretes beeswax to build the walls of the honeycomb. When wax is secreted by the bee it is a transparent colourless liquid, which later turns into a semi-solid substance on
contact with the atmosphere. Propolis is the resinous material gathered by honeybees from flowers and leaf buds of various plants. It is used mainly to disinfect and waterproof the hive. Propolis contains a variety of pharmacological and biological properties. The most important properties of Simply Bee products are the anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral properties. The Simply Bee line consists of all natural products such as beeswax, honey, propolis and essential oils.
