Its history:

In the Maya country in the Yucatan Peninsula, a secret is well kept. The secret of a stingless peaceful bee with blue eyes, living in the heart of the rainforest: the Melipona bee.

Sacred to the Mayans, these bees play an essential role in their cosmogony and their daily lives, to the point of attributing to honey "taste of heaven." Kept by some local Mayan communities, the ancestral knowledge of the breeding of bees melipona almost disappeared. Thanks to the Melipona Maya foundation , the rebirth of melipones beekeeping is now a reality.

Des abeilles melipone sans dardThis original honey from stingless bees differs from the honey from European bees. It is richer in water (27-34%), it has a very aromatic flavor and is used for many traditional beauty rituals from Central and South America. It is a rare and very expensive ingredient with exceptional moisturising, nourishing, regenerating and soothing properties.
