At Forever Bee we love getting creative and spending time with family, and so does our team! We'd love to take a moment to introduce you to our team members as they share their favourite crafting memory with you!

Annanie - Forever Bee Owner & Beekeeper
The kids and I making beeswax sheet candles at the kitchen table.

Matt - Forever Bee Owner & Beekeeper
I am our resident musician and love to play at markets and at home whenever I can.

Kathy - Marketing Team
When my children were young, we used to make wooden Christmas ornaments. The kids had a lot of fun painting and decorating them and were so proud to hang their own hand made Christmas ornament each year.

Kira - Business Manager
I would make a bunch of little gifts for my mom, then hide them around the house for her to find when she got home. She would have to go hunting for all the things I made.
I also got to make a whole bunch of crafts with my kids for this market! Memories we will all cherish forever.

Heather - Brand Ambassador
I remember when I was in elementary our teacher brought in wax sheets and we rolled candles. The candle we made was for our Mothers Day gift. My candle was very lop-sided but my mom told me it was beautiful. However, I don't recall her burning it which was probably a good idea.

Lanice - Warehouse Supervisor
The finished product of our paint night. Bob Ross would be so proud.

Ritzy - Warehouse Team
Throw back to when we were at the Lethbridge markets with the OG candle making kits! Look at the different kinds we used to have. So neat.

Sinead - Warehouse Team
My mum and I make cheesecakes together (she taste tests, I put in the elbow grease) 😂.

Cat - Marketing Team
My favourite crafting memory was when Forever Bee first started and we decided to make floating candles!! I was so fun doing all the trial and error ( including hot wax melting on my leg in the bath!!). We made everything, even the honey in the kitchen and it was always a family activity! 🙂

Erin - Brand Ambassador
I was apart of a Crafty Crew for 4H and so every week we would get together and make a new craft! My favorite would have had to be the knitted pillows we made! I met my best friend there and so crafting has always been a very special memory for me.

We'd love to know what your favourite crafting memory was, so comment in the blog below or send a message on chat!


Every business has a story and as the colder months approach, we’ve been reflecting a lot on ours. We’ve sure come a long way from where we started!

In the beginning, we heated honey on our kitchen stove. When we decided it was time to grow our business, we rented a commercial kitchen and drove all our supplies back and forth each day. We painted hive boxes on our driveway, rolled candles on our kitchen bench and built gift boxes in the back of our minivan!

It all started because we had a dream of creating a business that we could share with our children while providing nourishing goodness to customers. We are so blessed to have been able to make that dream a reality and we love sharing it with you every day.

As the Canadian winter approaches, it’s time for us to make sure our bees stay nice and cozy over the colder months.

Join us in this behind-the-scenes video at Suoto Farms to see how we winterize our hives so our bees stay safe all winter long. We’ll show you how we wrap the hives with special insulating material called Bee Cozy and treat them for mites, to make sure the hives remain a great environment for our bees to over-winter in.

You’ll see the way we make sure they can come and go, while reducing the cold wind on the hive. This also helps with ventilation. During the winter bees eat essential oils, honey and probiotics to keep them well.

Get your raw, unfiltered Clover Honey & Honeycomb here!


Honeycomb is the purest form of our raw, Clover Honey! It has all the natural sweetness, plus the added bonus of pure beeswax! This creamy, chewy consistency is all you could want from this magical treat that is the perfect star on any charcuterie board! Pair with your favourite crackers, cheese, and of course a Mandies Makes cheeseboard and enjoy a cozy night in!

Make a game for the whole family with some Honeycomb Ski Ball! Recycle used paper towel roll and construction paper, form a honeycomb shape and get the ball rolling on crafty fun!

For this giveaway you could be the lucky winner of a 1/2 lb Honeycomb!!

Today we’re so excited to invite you behind the scenes to learn more about our pure Beeswax!

Watch how we break up large blocks of Beeswax, ready for melting. We pour the melted wax into moulds and show you what it looks like to de-mould them and get them ready to arrive at your door.

We love sharing the amazing qualities of beeswax with our customers – it fragrances the air with a delightful wildflower honey scent, doesn’t drip, doesn’t smoke and purifies the air as it burns!

Plus, we’re super proud that there is no waste! If the wax has marks or imperfections we just re-melt it and start again! So you always get a perfect product in your shipment too!

How deliciously luxurious do handcrafted honey face masks sound? If you think they sound amazing, you’d be right! Ultra-nourishing for your face and hair, DIY honey face masks are the ultimate at-home show-yourself-some-love treat.

The antibacterial properties of raw honey are fantastic for treating acne, while the honey also purifies and moisturizes. Antioxidants fight signs of aging to leave your skin feeling smoother and more cared for.

You can combine your mask with a variety of ingredients and essential oils to make the perfect treatment for your skin. Make sure you choose essential oils that are skin-friendly and remember to use the right proportion. For example, you’ll need 5 x the Lemon essential oil to get a scent. Other oils that are great to use are Patchouli (great for dry skin) and Lavender (soothing for delicate or irritated skin).
