Beekeeper’s Daughter “Cleans” Up

Amy Oliver, owner of Country Bee, Inc., didn’t know that her father’s beekeeping business would turn her life around. After trial and error, she has realized her dream of leaving the corporate world.

Goodells, MI (PRWEB) May 22, 2005 -- Local resident, Amy Oliver, had no idea that her father’s beekeeping business would turn her life around. When Amy started making handcrafted soaps using her father’s honey and beeswax for fun, she didn’t know it would turn into a business that would help her to realize her dream of not working in the corporate world. What started with a couple of candle making weekends has expanded into a full line of bath and body products. Country Bee, Inc. was founded with the purpose of creating quality vegetable based beeswax and herbal body products while being mindful of the environment and supporting local economy and farmers, without the use of chemicals, artificial colorants and preservatives.

“Since I’d been involved in a more natural way of living, I took close notice of all the chemicals I was ingesting, inhaling and putting on my skin on a daily basis. I wanted to play an active part in “cleaning” up people’s lives,” explains Amy. “I found that I was able to heal my sensitive skin issues with all natural products that contained my dad’s locally harvested honey and beeswax, all the while doing something that I enjoyed. In today’s society, I didn’t know that I could have a job that I actually liked and be able to do that job at home.”

Founded in 2001, Country Bee has been featured in local art and craft shows and farmer’s market’s in Southeastern Michigan, as well as on their online store. The all natural product line includes their best selling handcrafted soaps, lip balms, and herbal salves in scents such as grapefruit peppermint, lavender chamomile and lemon poppy. A new Babee Line created to meet the exclusive needs of babies and toddlers premiered this Spring.
