Save the Bees with Seedball & SBC Skincare
This month we are focussing on our friends the bees – we wouldn’t have our nurturing Propolis collection if it wasn’t for these hard-working insects, so what better way to give back to them, than by planting some beautiful flowers that those buzzing bees will love.
SBC are very excited to be collaborating with Seedball they want to fill the world with wildflowers and save bees and butterflies, and they are starting with our gardens. So, SBC have teamed up with the wonderful team at Seedball, and are giving away their Bee Mix Seedball Tins for free in SBC’s Limited Edition Busy Bee Kit.
The Kit will also contain our cherished Propolis Skincare Gel and Propolis Bath & Shower Gel, and most excitingly our brand NEW Propolis & Safflower Body Milk!!
Here at SBC we care about the environment and strive to do what is best for it, take our recyclable packaging and the procurement of our ingredients, including our Propolis for example. In the ecosystem, Propolis is naturally collected by worker bees from Poplar trees that produce it continually. Then the Propolis is extracted from the beehives at the same time as the honey, wax, and royal jelly. Then it is separated from the pollen and purified for its use in our Propolis collection. Bees are never hurt in the process, nor is the Queen bee. One of the purposes of bees in nature is to create all these wonderful substances for the survival of other species.
So, what better way to thank them for their hard work than by scattering some Seedballs in the garden. Every Seedball tin contains 20 seed balls, each holding 50 native wildflower seeds that our perfect for the bees. The Bee Mix tin includes Birdsfoot Trefoil, Foxlove, Red Clover, Viper Bugloss and Wild Marjoram, all recommended by the Bumblebee Conservation Trust – bees will just love them!
Each seed ball itself contains a mini ecosystem: the seeds are mixed with peat-free compost, clay and a smidgen of chilli powder to protect from predators, then rolled into small balls which are easy to scatter. Seedball’s goal is to make it a bit easier for everyone to have gardens, balconies and window boxes bursting with native wildflowers, buzzing bees and beautiful butterflies.
The Limited Edition Busy Bee Kit is available from the 3rd of April 2018, until the 20th April 2018. Help us save the bee’s and don’t miss out on this special offer.
