While recently walking through one of the many local fairs in Chicago's Daley Plaza, I came upon beelove. A friend with me mentioned he'd tried the brand and loved it. The product junkie in me got excited. This is a local brand, and as we walked closer, I could smell how sweet the products were. Excitement.
I looked through the products and found an entire collection of skin and body care items, plus locally produced honey. My teas would never be the same. I tried the body balm, and was hooked. Later, I got the shower gel, body cream, and scrub. Purchased the lip balm, too. Even better, I learned more about the brand itself. Let me tell you about it...
Beelove is a brand with a twist. In their own words, it is a social enterprise employing formerly incarcerated individuals, teaching them skills through green-collar jobs, working with urban beehives to produce an all-natural line of honey-infused products that improve our skin's hydration. Beelove takes social consciousness to the next level, not only using local bees and other commodities to produce their goods, but have the local workforce to support their mission. In today's society, where the people behind brands, their views and missions really matter, beelove hits the target.
So much thought has been put into this brand. So much thought comes out. It goes beyond a personal care line. The combination of honey bees and formerly incarcerated employees may bring initial pause at first thought. But, once fear is removed and minds are opened, something amazing is produced. This is what our society needs. This is beelove!
Take a look at some of these amazing products, and get your orders in. The holidays are coming!
