Honey Healing Stick Helps Rosacea

Posted on February 19, 2014 | 1 comment

TheraBee Honey Healing Stick with Tea TreeCan our TheraBee Honey Healing Stick reduce the pain and suffering of Eczema and Rosacea? Can it be a magical cure? Let’s take a look...

Since we released the Honey Healing Stick to the market late last year, we’ve had a number of people tell us personally how it has helped a variety of skin ailments like Diaper Rash, Cradle Cap, Eczema, Sunburn, Windburn, Runner’s Heel as well as Rosacea. The stories have been phenomenal and humbling.

Here is what we know... Rosacea is a skin disease that is estimated to affect between 5-20 percent of the people worldwide. The condition results in red inflamed skin, with swelling, roughness and fine visible blood vessels around the central area of the face including cheeks, nose and under the eyes. Severe cases can affect the eyes and also lead to a bulbous nose condition. The National Rosacea Society is an incredible resource. The cause of all this is thought to be associated with microscopic mites called Demodex. These mites live in the pores of your skin, particularly around the hair follicles of your eyebrows, eyelashes and the oily pores of your nose, forehead and cheeks. YUCK! For the gory details you can read more here. A related condition is called “Ocular Rosacea” ( which shares similar pathologies with “Refactory Blepharitis,”). A new treatment program prescribes a Tea Tree oil scrub applied to the eyelids, which seem to eradicate the mites.

According to the National Eczema Association, “Eczema is an itchy, red rash that can appear all over the body and is also known as Atopic Dermatitis. Babies often have eczema on the face, especially the cheeks and chin. Children and adults tend to have eczema on the neck, wrists, and ankles, and in areas that bend, like the inner elbow and knee.

The rash of eczema is different for each person. It may even look different or affect different parts of your body from time to time. It can be mild, moderate, or severe. Generally, people with eczema suffer from dry, sensitive skin. Eczema is also known for its intense itch. The itch may be so bad that you scratch your skin until it bleeds, which can make your rash even worse, leading to even more inflammation and itching. This is called the itch-scratch cycle.”

In testimonials from our users, the TheraBee Honey Healing Stick works very well in soothing the intense itching and inflammation from Rosacea, Eczema and mysterious rashes. We’ve heard this from adults and from parents who have been at their wits end and used the product on their children. We believe the healing ingredients of honey, propolis and royal jelly, combined with a super blend of naturally antibacterial essential oils such as tea tree, bergamot, lavender, frankincense, myrrh and golden seal has a lot to do with it! [Remember, all of our products are made from all-natural ingredients and are safe for your entire body].

What to Look for in a Local Business Association

Posted on February 06, 2014 | 0 comments

Join!We have lived on the Central Coast for over 9 years. When we first moved here, we started a company focused on selling aromatherapy products to high-end spas, hotels and boutiques. We were encouraged to join the local Chambers of Commerce (which we did) and started the networking. There was no value at all for us, especially considering all of our clients were either individuals buying online or retailers around the country. As a company looking at our bottom line and ROI on any investments (like a Chamber membership), we tried mightily to leverage all the resources we could within those organizations but we ultimately decided to move on without renewing.

San Luis Obispo Chamber of Commerce

Fast-forward 9 years and TheraBee is making waves and selling our culinary honey and body care products in a number of local retailers. In that time, the quality of services and fruitful networking opportunities of the local Chambers has improved dramatically. With that progress, Life Elements and TheraBee are now proud members of the San Luis Obispo (aka “SLO”) and Paso Robles (aka “Paso”) Chambers of Commerce as well as the Paso Robles Wine Alliance starting this year.

Whether it is our own team, our retailers or other partners, we are looking for an alignment of our values and especially our ideals of providing quality service along with a great product and of course, Honey Bee Goodness!

Yes, we like to give back to the community, but we are also looking at these memberships, so our due diligence in deciding to join was really based on “What can you do for us?” Here is our list of the things we are looking for:Paso Robles Chamer of Commerce

  • Marketing visibility: Whether it is online thru the Chamber Business locators or their promotion of members at mixers, business education events, there are many ways these organizations can be leveraged. It’s also up to you to dive in and engage.
  • Networking: Its not just about throwing mixers with nibbles and booze. We love the concept of the perfect host at a party who knows enough about you to introduce you to others who share similar interests or inspirations. That’s what we want.
  • Legislative Affairs: As a small business owner, we need to know what the government is up to, whether it is related to health care or food safety. The SLO Chamber has a very strong legislative team that provides leadership on critical issues as well as keeping members informed on the actions of local leaders.
  • Physical Presence: We love that both Paso and SLO have physical locations in prime downtown spots that rPaso Robles Wine Allianceeceive a ton of visitor traffic. For TheraBee especially, it helps when a visitor comes in and asks for some local goodies, that we have retail locations literally within site of these storefronts. SLO takes it one step further by noting every referral they provide to a visitor, and sending us an email.
  • Spread the Love: When you live and work in a town that was named the Wine Region of the Year by Wine Enthusiast Magazine, it pays to ride that wave. While the local wineries and growers grow the grapes and make the wine, the Paso Wine Alliance is a powerful marketing and advocacy organization that has a lot do with our region’s success. If you are visiting the area, you MUST check out their incredibly detailed list of wineries and events. And don’t forget to let us know….We’re happy to point you in the right direction.

Honey - It does a body good!

Posted on February 02, 2014 | 0 comments

Of course we know that honey is much healthier for you than sugar, corn syrup or synthetic sweeteners. At TheraBee, we use our honey, along with propolis, royal jelly, beeswax and pollen in our all natural body care for their healing benefits. So it's no surprise you're hearing more and more about this healthy food. This is an excerpt from Realfarmacy.com's article - "5 Food-Medicines That Could Possibly Save Your Life" ...

...Bees produce a wide range of therapeutic substances beyond honey, e.g. propolis, bee venom, royal jelly, beeswax, bee pollen, etc., but this sweet, sticky stuff that we all love to dip our paw into occasionally, is the most well-known and most copiously consumed of them all – and for good reason, it tastes great!

But did you know that this sweet treat is one of nature’s most powerful healing agents, as well? Here is just a smattering of some of honey’s more scientifically researched health benefits and/or applications:

  • Aspirin-Induced Gastrointestinal Toxicity (honey coats the delicate linings of the stomach, preventing aspirin-induced lesions and bleeding)
  • Bacterial Infections
  • Burns
  • Candida infection (despite the fact that honey contains sugar, it demonstrates anti-fungal properties)
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Dental plaque (a recent study showed that Manuka honey was a viable alternative to chemical mouthwash in dissolving dental plaque)[iii]
  • Dermatitis
  • Diabetic Ulcer
  • Herpes-related ulcers
  • MRSA (especially for Manuka honey)

There are many more uses for honey than covered here. Needless to say, replacing synthetic sweeteners or highly processed sugars or high fructose corn syrup with a moderate amount of honey may be a great preventative health step to take.
