Beecology- The Story

Six years ago David Rzepka agreed to let a co-worker put a beehive on his family farm. That move would change the course of his life. The co-worker could not attend to the bees due to personal reasons and David stepped in to fulfill that role. He studied bees and started attending workshops to learn more. He found that keeping bees was a cathartic activity he enjoyed.

Soon he realized how connected the bees world were to ours. How just minute changes would disturb the balance of their existence. This led him to start thinking about everything we put in and on our bodies. He moved in a new direction and started a new hair and skin care line using honey, beeswax, and other ingredients that are good for us and our world. The result is Beecology.

Beecology- Pay it Forward:

Through their charity website partner,, Beecology pays it forward by providing charitable donations. The fun part is you can choose where your charity dollars are will be donated. Using your bar code on your purchase, you can submit it to find which organizations you can donate 10% of your purchase to. I used the lip balm and found I could donate to:

Evironmental and Energy Study Institute


Beecology- My Review

My dealings with Beecology, David, and Amy Rzepka have been very pleasant. They are as nice as their products and when Amy found out I liked peppermint, she even added a few more things for me. The products come very well packaged. I received:

Honey and Peppermint Body Wash, Hot Chocolate Body Soap ( special edition for Valentines Day), Peppermint, Honey, and Oat body soap, Buzz Balm Lip Balm, Peppermint and Honey Foaming Hand Soap, and Original Honey Hand & Body Cream.


First of all I have to talk about the smell, it was wonderful. The body wash is amazing in the morning. The peppermint wakes you right up and you can feel the moisture locking in. The hand soap foams up really well and leaves a light smell on your skin. My kids love it and love washing their hands with it. My favorite thing was the lip balm. Not only did it have a delicious smell but it felt good on my lips.

I have noticed since I have been using it that my skin feels softer and more nourished. When you are using it you can’t help but think about all the things you use on your hair and skin every day. I know it has made me more aware and picky.
