On a small acreage outside of Syracuse, in the distance you can hear the buzz of working bees making honey. Lois Linke enjoys living in the country and, as a former teacher turned beekeeper, she looks forward to seeing the bees dance from her flower and vegetable garden to their hives gathering nectar and working until the mid-August honey harvest.

Brandon, Jessi, and son Reed Doke raise bees not just for honey, but to use beeswax for therapeutic purposes. Beeswax is a sustainable, renewable resource made by bees. Versatile, beeswax is a popular item that's been finding its way into skincare, haircare, and aromatherapy products.
