Got a cough? Canadian bees come to the rescue with Beekeeper’s Naturals.
Growing up in Toronto, Beekeeper’s Naturals founder, Carly Stein Kremer, battled tonsillitis on and off for years, which was worsened by the fact that her autoimmune disorder prevented her from taking traditional medicines like antibiotics.
It wasn’t until college that she was able to find real relief. While travelling around Europe, she came down with a particularly severe case of tonsillitis, where she discovered the healing properties of bee propolis; a combination of tree and plant resin created by bees to protect the hive. Propolis delivers essential vitamins, minerals, and 300+ beneficial compounds for potent health support.
When she returned to the University of Victoria in Canada, Kremer’s new curiosity for propolis, honey, royal jelly, and pollen led her to begin an apprenticeship with a local beekeeper. She formulated her first propolis products in the chemistry lab and shared them with friends and family.
After graduating from school, she started her career on Wall Street, but her passion for bees and formulating products remained. On the weekends, Kremer posted up at local Farmers Markets with her products and they sold out every time. She saw an opportunity to help people, so she left her successful career at Goldman Sachs behind. She dedicated her life to full-time beekeeping and bringing propolis to the masses in sustainable and accessible ways. That’s when Beekeeper’s Naturals was born.
The bees are just as important to Beekeeper’s Naturals as humans. They source their hive-powered products from small, sustainable apiaries that prioritize pesticide-free health and partner with leading bee research institutions to raise awareness and support pollinator protection.
Beekeeper’s Naturals is on a mission to reinvent the medicine cabinet with clean, effective products powered by bees. Whether it’s spring throat irritation, summer colds, or the coming fall flu season, they have you covered all year long.
That’s a Canadian brand success story worth sharing with the hive.
