There are two things everyone knows about honey bees: 1. They make honey and 2. They sting.
But there is so much more to honey bees than that!
Back when I was a system administrator, the mantra was, “RTFM,” which did not stand for Rolling on The Floor Muttering (though believe me, when email goes down at 2 am, and you’re the one responsible for fixing it, it’s pretty tempting…).
It stood for Read The … Manual (I think I left out a word there, but you get the idea).
Well, now I’m asking you to “RTFL,” Read The … Label.
From the very start of my business, I’ve put bee facts on nearly every label.
For instance, did you know that all the workers in a honey bee hive are female? Or that honey bees have 5 eyes? Or that worker bees live only about a month in summer (but as long as 6 over the winter!). And you can help honey bees by being lazy. That’s right. Mow your lawn less often, let those dandelions grow, let the clover blossom. Those aren’t weeds, they’re forage!
What a win-win! Yummy skincare, with a side of knowledge.
