We support the honey bees and donate a percentage of sales to aid the preservation and protection the feral honey bee by rescuing and relocating endangered hives, and by educating the public about the bees’ value, and our partnership with nature. Many of the country’s crops would not exist without the honey bee at bloom time. Crop yield and quality would significantly abate without honey bee pollination. Each year American farmers and growers continue to feed more people using less land. They produce an abundance of food that is nutritious and safe. Honey bees are very much a part of this modern agricultural success story. It’s estimated that there are about 2.4 million colonies in the U.S. today, two-thirds of which travel the country each year pollinating crops and producing honey and beeswax. The production of beeswax is essential to the bee colony. It is used to construct the combs in which the bees raise their brood and into which they keep pollen and surplus honey for the winter. Worker bees, which live only around 35 days in the summer, develop special wax-producing glands on their abdomens (inner sides of the sternites of abdominal segments 4 to 7) and are most efficient at wax production during the 10th through the 16th days of their lives. From about day 18 until the end of its life, a bee's wax glands steadily decline. Bees consume honey (6-8 pounds of honey are consumed to produce a pound of wax) causing the special wax-producing glands to covert the sugar into wax which is extruded through small pores. The wax appears as small flakes on the bees' abdomen. At this point the flakes are essentially transparent and only become white after being chewed. It is in the mastication process that salivary secretions are added to the wax to help soften it. This also accounts for its change in color. The exact process of how a bee transfers the wax scales from its abdomen to its mandibles was a mystery for years. It's now understood to be processed in either of two ways. Most of the activities in the hive are cooperative so it should be no surprise that other worker bees are willing to remove the wax scales from their neighbors and then chew them. The other method is for the same bee extruding the wax to process her own wax scales. This is done using one hind leg to move a wax scale to the first pair of legs (forelegs). A foreleg then makes the final transfer to the mandibles where it is masticated, and then applied to the comb being constructed or repaired. Beeswax becomes soft and very pliable if the temperature is too high (beeswax melts around 149 degrees Fahrenheit). Likewise, it becomes brittle and difficult to manage if the temperature is too low. However, honeybees maintain their hive at a temperature of around 95 degrees Fahrenheit, which is perfect for the manipulation of beeswax. A honeycomb constructed from beeswax is a triumph of engineering. It consists of hexagon shaped cylinders (six-sided) that fit naturally side-by-side. It has been proven that making the cells into hexagons is the most efficient shape for using the smallest possible amount of wax to contain the highest volume of honey. It has also been shown to be one of the strongest possible shapes while using the least amount of material.
Describe your product in 3 words.
Pure. Natural. Aroma
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
I came up with the idea to make natural wax melts with no chemicals and that lasts longer than soy wax which helps deodorize the air.
What makes your product special?
Gentle Bees fir needle beeswax melts are unique because beeswax is a natural air purifier and produced by Texas honeybees.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
The best part of my startup has been the successful cooperation with Amazon. I know how to make unique, fresh, and natural products but I'm not savy with marketing and brand awareness. Because of Amazon, we've sold many products worldwide and sales continue to increase.
There are six melts in the package. They're technically individual, once they're popped out, but, while in the packaging, from the front, it's just one big cube. That sticks in the packaging.
When I eventually pried one lose, it melted quickly, and immediately filled my whole apartment with a sweet fir scent. It's actually nearing the holiday season and I have a cold, so this is quite a treat. I can actually smell it, even though my nose is maybe a bit plugged at the moment.
I like that the melts consist only of beeswax and essential oil. No additives or chemicals to create the scent, and even the color looks natural. The beeswax is supposed to improve air quality, a claim I really have no way to test. However, these melts create a welcoming atmosphere and I really enjoy the scent. Some melts I can only use for a short time before the scent becomes too strong and invasive. That's not the case with Gentle Bees. The scent is there, but not too powerful.
