May Box Reveal, Bee Happy-Celebrating World Bee Day

Updated: Jun 5, 2023

Did you know May 20 is World Bee Day? These little pollinators are vital to our existence so we need to celebrate them! We sent our subscribers items created by bees and loved by bees to help spread the love and awareness. Let's dive in to the contents seen below.

May subscription box contents

Pina Colada Flavored Honey

Local honey

We sourced this amazing honey from a local apiary right down the road. Their honey is fantastic, and they make delicious flavored honey as well. We chose to use Pina Colada flavor to mark the coming of warm summer weather. In can be used in so many great ways such as in iced tea, drizzled over ice cream, mixed with cream cheese for a dip, marinades, grilled shrimp, pork or chicken! The possibilities are endless.

Wildflower Seed Kit

DIY Beeswax Candle Kit

Working with beeswax can be fun! The hardest part is breaking it down whether you cut it or grate it. We provided the items needed to create your own candle using the beeswax bars. Add in some essential oils to provide the scent of your choice. Make sure you keep an eye on future blogs. I will be talking about the other items you can make using beeswax.

Save the Bees Zipper Pouch

This pouch is perfect to hold your makeup, office supplies, craft supplies or even toiletries when traveling. Every time you use it, you will be reminded to do your part to help save our pollinators.

With this box we wanted to bring awareness to the growing problem we are facing with our bees. We need them and can't ignore the important work they do every season. Without them we would not have the beautiful flowers we see, most of the foods we eat, and animals eat. Let's take time this month and every month for that matter to do what we can to help them survive and thrive!

As you use the items in your box, give in to the experience of what you received. Schedule time for yourself, make some tea with your honey, and sit outside and plan your wildflower garden. As you sip you tea, look around you and really see what is there. Listen to the sounds of nature, of the birds. Watch the clouds slowly roll by, feel the breeze on your skin. This is what living in the moment is. No distractions, no thoughts of anything but what is happening right at this very moment. This is called self care.

Did you make your candle yet? As the day starts to fade away get your beeswax ready to go. Watch it slowly melt as the heat hits it. Add your favorite scent and pour! It will start to harden pretty quickly. Look at what you created! Keep it for yourself and remember your beautiful day each time you burn it, or give it to someone special as a gift, as this candle now has something special attached to it-your love, memory of the day, and the experience.

At Simple Joy Box our goal is to help people reconnect with what matters most in life and to find joy in the everyday. Each month we curate an experience that helps you de-stress, slow down, and appreciate the simple things in life. Even the most ordinary moments can be transformed into something special with the right mindset and a few thoughtful touches. We make the ordinary extraordinary!
