Roslyn Horton's Profile

About

Thanks for stopping in.

So if you’ve not met me, I’m Ros Horton, a happily married fifty something mother of four, “Gammie” of five, and Master Beekeeper. I began beekeeping 13 years ago - partly to produce my own honey, and partly because it seemed like a marvelous undertaking. Was I ever right! Curiosity and love for helping people turned my "make your own food" hobby into an awesome adventure filled with bees, love, wonder and continual surprises. My hobby became my business and my business became a means of serving my fellow man.

Our niche in the world of bee products is Fire Ant First Aid and our line of Beemu Bath and Body items. Early on an unexpected “accident” with propolis, a brittle brown substance made by honey bees sent me on a marvelous wild goose chase.

Our niche in the world of bee products is Fire Ant First Aid and our line of Beemu Bath and Body items. Early on an unexpected “accident” with propolis, a brittle brown substance made by honey bees sent me on a marvelous wild goose chase. Coupled with the knowledge that propolis was a powerful healing agent, I originally set out to make something that would help my father’s psoriasis. While I never achieved what I wanted to do for him, I did stumble on a method and formula that prevented a fire ant bite from making a pustule. It is now marketed as Fire Ant First Aid and works so well for so many skin problems that we launched other products utilizing our proprietory propolis and emu oil formulas under a different logo. I guess you could say the goose turned out to be the funky bird we call BEEMU.

Our tasty, beautiful and healthful items reflect our core values of excellence, sustainable living, education and simplicity. All bee products originate from sustainable beehives. We grow many of the herbs used in our formulas. We choose the purest and best quality ingredients available for our bath and body products. We hope you’ll browse around a while and stop back often.
