From our Customers:

  • I have Rheumatoid Arthritis that had gotten so bad in my hands that I could not hold a pen or the steering wheel without pain.  I had large, swollen nodules that created painful pressure points.  I even had to give up a loved pastime – knitting.  I started taking 30% Propolis Tincture, 1/2 dropperful twice a day, to see if it would help me.  After 3 days, I slept  through the night for the first time in months, since the pain had lessened.  After a month of taking the Propolis Tincture, I realized that the nodules in my hands had gotten smaller, and I was able to do things with my hands without pain.  By the second month, I was able to start knitting again!  I am amazed at the relief I am getting.  Once, I forgot to take it with me on a weekend trip, and after just 2 days without, I noticed a difference.  I won’t go without it again!  Debbie C. Oregon, June 2017


  • A year or so ago I bought your wound salve at the Ohio State Fair. This is a remarkable product. We’ve had many infected wounds that have healed beautifully with this product. Within hours you can see a difference. Thank you,   Cindy V. July 2016
  • My husband loves your shave soap and is just about out. We’d like to order a new one. Alexandra W., July 2016
  • I am currently taking the propolis elixir everyday and it cured a bladder infection within 24 hrs!!! Loving your products!  Peggy C., Summit County, OH, July 2016

  • I had to reach out and thank you so much for the Propolis Oil and Bee Bread. Not only that the note and information was so interesting to read. I’ve been reading up on some stuff on the blog as well this morning and its just amazing what nature can do. Megan, CO, May 2016


  • Thank you so much for all the wonderful information you provided me.  I really appreciate that you took the time to give me a hand with our situation.  I will look into some of the suggestions you had and hopefully we can find someone to fix our problem! Justin G., OH, May 2016


  • I bought the lemongrass mint lip balm on a whim, and I am hooked! Honestly, my lips have never been so smooth and healthy after just one use. It also smells absolutely amazing. I applied it earlier this afternoon, and it stayed on my lips for hours! It’s been twelve hours now since I first applied it, and they look and feel so much better. I loved it so much I decided to look up more information about the company, and now I’m officially hooked. Great products AND all this awesome effort for bee awareness, and local business? I love it. While I haven’t used any other products, I sure will now! Thanks for making my day with a simple lip balm!  Cassie G., Mar. 1026


  • I could not say enough good things about this incredible company! Not only are their products AMAZING; the families working behind the scenes to bring you these products are INCREDIBLE as well! We have been using their entire line for a couple of years now.. for everything. I can’t remember the last time any of my family needed “medicine”! Love how knowledgeable they are as a company and how helpful they are! Very responsive to questions! Sara W., OH, March 2016


  •  I love the taste of the raspberry thyme lip balm and the bee rescue cream is very soothing. Allyson E., OH, Feb. 2016


  • Great product & fast shipping. Enjoyed the wonderful customer service! Elizabeth O., Feb. 2016IMG_4486


  • I was at your booth today at the Art Sale (Columbus Expo Center) and purchased Propolis Oil (1 oz. size) which worked very quickly to relieve arthritic pain in my hands.  Anyway, I will most likely buy more of the propolis oil as it does show good reduction in pain.  Steve P., Wooster, OH, Jan. 2016


  • I received a very nice package and a note from the folks at  “BEEpothecary” a few days ago.  Thank you so much for having the items sent.  I’m an instant fan of the products an my hands appreciate it.  Brian B., OH, Jan. 2016


  • I want to thank you so much for the prompt shipment! But more importantly for the hand written note! That made me smile, this is a service that is greatly lacking in today’s world! A simple sign of appreciation goes a long way. May your holiday season be just as blessed! I hope to periodically place orders with your company in the future. Emmet P., Dec. 2015


  • One of my coworkers recently gave me a dose of your company’s propolis drops to help a sore throat and it worked instantly! I’m very impressed by the product and after doing some research I am wondering if it can help me with some acne scars I’ve been living with — it seems like it can but I would like some confirmation before I bought anything. Bethany C., Dec. 2015  (We replied yes to propolis for scars, from our personal experience!)


  • First off I want to say how glad I am that I stumbled upon your booth at the ohio state fair! I was starting to get a summer cold late last week and tripled up on my propolis tincture and felt better by Monday night. I’m 1411047167287hooked! Heather , Aug. 2015


  • Hello, I met with you at Honeyfest this past Saturday and it was a pleasure to meet  you and learn about your products. I was there with my husband and our two dogs. We learned about propolis (we didn’t know about it) and bought several products from you.
    I am a local health and fitness blogger and I wanted to share with you what I wrote about your products on both of my blogs:
    Words to Run By (all about me and my running journey): http://wordstorunby.com/2013/09/hive-honey-dont-know.html



  • I have used 4 of their products and LOVE all of them! I found them at the Ohio State fair in 2014 and have been using them ever since that time. Love that it is Made in America, Ohio Proud, and that the owners really care about their bees & the products they make.  Lynn S, April 2015


  • Thank you so much for your products. I will be back for more and I hope this posts can help you get some more customers in and out of Ohio!
    Keep up the great work and thank you for speaking with us,   Sara W., Columbus, OH area
  • I’m obsessed with the health benefits of propolis. I put drops in our tea to build the immune system and lessen the length of a cold, use it on my face to clear up skin issues and use it on wounds…check out my friends’ blog and local business. Sarah S., thank you!

  • This can be used in so many ways! From smoothies, to one of my favs-multi grain waffle with bee bread and nutella, whole grain tortilla wrap with peanut butter and bee bread. I have energy to get through the day and don’t like staying inside. I started after i found out i had mono. It was to take me alot longer to recover then it has ! This is one ingredient i will always have around! Andrea T. , Aug. 2014


  • Super product (propolis) and excellent service. It has healed a variety of issues at our house Laurie M., Dec. 2014


  •  Oh my gosh! I think I have finally found the cure for my adult acne and bad skin!!! Ive been using the propolis oil and tincture and have seen a 100% improvement in my skin in only a few days. I had pretty much given up on finding something to treat it and I am so glad I found you at the made local marketplace. Leilah B., Dec 2014



  • I have bought a couple of bottles of the tincture of Propolis. Recently, I contracted a cold and used the propolis one evening as a gargle for a sore throat. I was skeptical that it would work. I am sooo pleased to say…IT WORKED! I cannot say I have noticed the benefit of it reducing my cold time, as I ran out during the course of the cold, but I don’t doubt some of it’s benefits and will try to use it for more of its listed healing properties. I have enjoyed the soaps very much. No overly perfumed smell and softening and exfoliating at the same time. Julie from Georgia
  • Due to weather and unforeseen circumstances I could not get to my tools I had mentioned previous, but fear not. I have other leather goods I took before and after pics of. I told you I would have to cut bottle open but I didn’t think it was going to be so soon. The tools side cutters and pliers I used on container will only benefit from the bees wax base as a anti rust and a natural lubricant. Anyway as you can see I used the remnants of bottle and mixed with a used can of polish I had your leather guard in. For work boots its fine. Not going to spit shine those. Just protect. For dress shoes I use a shoe cream that goes on like a car polish, rub on let set and then wipe off. I applied your conditioner to old pair of dress shoes will polish over later. For marketing I would target horse people they use a lot of tack and leather goods. Being natural it wont effect the horses skin and be absorbed in to their pores. From Jeff -Georgia

  • Just wanted to say another thanks for the wound salve. It’s amazing!! I don’t know if I’m eating something, but my legs have been itching like crazy, even waking me up at night and I put some slave on and literally instant relief! Hugs!!

    THe Propolis Throat spray is AMAZING! Not only has it helped with a massive tooth ache, it really does work for sore throat and any mouth sores.

    So glad you have had success! Propolis works for so many ailments! WE use it on skin infections and rashes, ear infections, and orally for colds, viruses and bronchial infections and asthma. Health…powered by bees!

    Can I just eat raw propolis to get health benefits from it?


    • Jeannie S
      Feb 16, 2014 @ 22:07:04

      Yes, you can eat raw propolis, and some people do. I have heard about people who chew it like gum. However, it is very sticky and will stick to your teeth. It is very hard to get off of things. It will also stain your teeth and mouth a yellowy orange color that lasts for a while! Not very attractive! When I work with it, it stains my hands and nails, which lasts for a day or two. The taste is also not particularly pleasant to most – tastes very pine sappy! Bottom line: yes, you can do it, but it might not be the most pleasant experience!

    Hi there,
    I met you guys at the Hancock craft show this past weekend. I purchased an oil and a skin rejuvenating balm. I’d just like to share with you that already your products are changing my life!! I have been ingesting the oil in hopes that it could help with my severe IBS that I have. This stuff is out of this world amazing. I cant tell you how much better I feel already! Also I have already had comments from clients of mine telling me how good my skin looks. I am officially hooked!! Also I have been using the product in my hair and have also seen amazing results there. Just thought you would appreciate the feed back!

    Blessings to you

    I was at the Preparedness Expo in Cincinnati this month and came upon your table of Beepothecary products. I told you that I had a sore throat and was recommended the throat spray and nasal spray. What I didn’t tell you is that I had been sick for over six weeks with a sore throat and feeling run down. I have been using both products a couple of times a day since this past Saturday (so for about four days). Your products have managed to do what no antibiotics have been able to do. I am simply amazed. In four days, I feel better than I have after six weeks of being tested for infections and being on two rounds of antibiotics. The day I bought the products, I was feeling kinda down – wondering if the doctors would figure out what’s going on. Now, the doctors won’t be seeing me again for this issue. I am almost completely healed. For the first time in what feels like forever, I woke up and I did not have a sore throat. As I write this, I find myself feeling quite emotional about how well it has worked and how much better I feel. I can’t tell you how happy I am with the products. I’m so grateful to you all! I will be buying more and gifting it to my husband and my mother-in-law for allergy issues. Thank you! Thank you! –Jackie

      Jackie, we get emotional when we hear about people like you, who have been suffering in pain and now are finding relief. Wonderful news! That is the power of the honeybee. Thank you so much for sharing your story with us. I hope, it’s ok if I share your story with others who are experiencing the same or similar issues. Jeannie and Steve had a great time at the Expo and we hope to put it on our calendar for next year! Blessing to you and your family
