Our Story

Home / Our Story
  • beekeeping

The inspiration for our products has been influenced by many sources. We both started our careers as analytical chemists in the pharmaceutical industry in Kent before branching out into Sports and Remedial Massage Therapies (Mary-Ann) and forestry (Stuart) back home in Scotland.

A love of nature and sport, and a concern for the environment feature heavily in our lifestyle and this is reflected in our products. In 2014 we started keeping bees, partly due to our interest in the manufacture of our prime ingredient (Scottish Beeswax), but primarily due to concern about the plight of the honeybee.

The development of our products has allowed us to indulge our analytical chemistry experience, whilst looking after our bees has given us the opportunity to work with and look after nature as a family – our 3 little ones are usually pretty keen to lend a hand (long may it continue!).

Our products are all made from the finest natural ingredients. We carefully research all our ingredients and packaging; selecting recyclable & sustainable materials, and where viable reducing air-miles, without compromising the quality or presentation of our products.

Whilst not producing and marketing beeswax products, or looking after the bees………

……Mary-Ann juggles nursery and school runs with her busy Sports Therapy practice. In what other spare time there is she enjoys road biking, running and is currently learning Gaelic to keep up with the wee ones at school.

…… Stuart spends his day working in forests and woodlands as a surveyor. With a passion for the outdoors, sports and nature, Stuart also takes part in triathlon, hill races and mountain biking.
