18 Million Reasons to be Happy…

Updated: Apr 12

Summer has well and truly arrived and as we bask in the glorious sunshine, our amazing bees are working hard producing the finest quality honey in New Zealand (we’re biased obviously!). We’ve come a long way since we started Happy Beekeeping in 2016. From a very humble start, we now have approximately 18 million bees. Our manuka honey is now shipped across the world from as far away as Scotland to Japan, Canada and Germany. To our friends across the world and to all our loyal customers, thank you for putting the happy into Happy Beekeeping. To say thank you, we’re offering free shipping on all orders. So make the most of summer whether that’s our natural skin products or our premium grade manuka honey.

All you need Pork chops Olive oil Salt & Pepper HBK Manuka Honey

Season your chops and rub with olive oil. Cook on the barbecue and pour yourself a glass of wine (it’s the holidays!). When the chops are almost cooked through, drizzle the manuka honey over the meat and turn for a final sizzle. Remove from the barbecue and rest. Serve with a green salad or corn on the cob. Wash down with a dip in the ocean.

When we started our journey here, we always knew we wanted to use home grown natural ingredients in a range of organic skincare products. Combining both active manuka honey MGO 500+ (15+UMF) and Propolis, we created éclat. Our products are designed to both protect and nourish skin using only the finest natural ingredients.

Honey is renowned for incredible healing properties, but did you know propolis has been used in skin treatment since ancient times? Scientists have now proved that propolis is one of the most effective treatments for nourishing skin and helping skin conditions. Among just some of the amazing properties, it is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-viral to name a few! Whether you’re looking for a luxurious facial cleanser, a rejuvenating eye cream or an everyday cream, treat yourself this summer and keep yourself hydrated with our éclat range.
