Tu-Bees Gourmet Honey products

Supporting Canadian farmers and businesses has never been more important to me that is why I need to brag about this Saskatchewan Canadian company. When considering what to give to your adult children, a cousin or aunt, friends, neighbors or coworkers for Christmas, why not give the gift of Saskatchewan, Canada’s very own Tu-Bees Gourmet Honey. The company is owned by two daughters and their mom- Ms. G. Gaye Sheppard who we refer to as Mama Bee. Nicole (Nikki) Hein is the founder and Queen Bee at Tu-Bees while Jessica (Jessie) Hein is the co-owner and Worker Bee at Tu-Bees. Gaye handles the marketing, sales, and maintaining the companies social media platforms.

Tu-Bees all started in 2007 over the desire for Nikki age 12 at the time to buy a horse! Nicole was too young to get a job to buy a horse, so she needed to come up with a great idea. It was honey in a tube. From there the business was born. Since its beginning in 2007, Tu-Bees has expanded its product line from marketing two types of creamed honeys, packaged in squeezable tubes, to 375 g honey tubs and various beeswax gift ideas.

Colour Your Own DIY Beeswax Wrap Kit

DIY Beeswax Wrap Kit

In a world where less plastic is better, Beeswax wraps are becoming a popular kitchen stable. TuBees Honey Colour Me DIY Beeswax Wrap Kits include everything you need to create and colour your own beeswax food wraps for you to enjoy or to use as a gift. All you need to do is grab your washable markers and put your creativity to work. Colour the fabric, and then iron it to set the colour.

Preheat the oven to 220°F or the lowest setting. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the fabric on top. Place wax compound in a double boiler or glass measuring cup and set in a saucepan of water. Let melt! Evenly distribute wax compound all over your fabric with the included paint brush. Place the sheet in the oven for about 5 minutes. Remove from oven and look for any dry spots. Brush mixture over these uncovered areas, applying more coating as needed. Place back in the oven for a couple more minutes. Place the next wrap (s) you are going to make on top of the finished fabric to soak up any excess coating mixture. Walf the fabric in the air until it cools. Hang the fabric up to dry or set it on the back of a chair to dry. Do not lay directly on the table as stuff will stick to it. I found that it was easy to oversaturate, so keep this in mind.

To clean: Wash your wraps by hand in cool water with a mild dish soap. Place them on a drying rack or clothesline to dry.

Kits include: 2 medium (10″ x 11″) fabric and 2 small (6″x 7″) fabric to make a set of four wraps that can be used over and over again.

Two Kit Styles to Choose From: Kid Friendly Patterns and Advanced Adult Patterns.

This fun product is a collaboration of Tu-Bees Honey, Urban Evergreen and Colour Me Cushions.

The kits are perfect for those individuals that would like to make their own beeswax wraps or you make them as a personalized gift for someone else.

  1. My order just shipped! I got the fire starter disc’s and a gift basket after discovering this company through you. So excited for it to get here!

  2. I have been wanting to try out the products from this company for some time. Love the idea of the TuBees Honey Colour Me DIY Beeswax Wrap Kit

  3. This summer the resident’s worked on a Save the Bee’s campaign and created bee baths, planted wild flowers, bee crafts educated and shared information on saving the bees on the importance of our bee friends. The rec team even dressed up as bees for a fun bee day of events. Bee’s are of great importance to our environment. So let’s save the bee’s!!

    1. These Beeswax Firestarter Biscuits sound amazing! I am going to get some as a stocking stuffer for my husband.
      I also think the lemon flavored honey would be delicious!

  4. I bet the candles would be great at removing odors. Does it have a mild honey scent? It would be nice to burn a natural candle without the toxic chemicals & toxic waste in paraffin candles.
