Every lavender season - from June until July - the Valensole Plateau is alive with honeybees hard at work pollinating endless fields of lavender plants. Why are the bees working so hard? They have so many reasons – and, fortunately for us, one of the reasons is to add the gorgeous honey fragrance to The Queen’s Honey soap and body butter. Why is it called The Queen’s Honey? It has nothing to do with any human queen. Rather, it all starts with the queen of the bee colony. The worker bees in the colony strive to keep their queen healthy healthy. If the queen is healthy, the hive thrives.
