Welcome to Nina’s Bees...

Nina's Bees natural beekeeping involves holistic approach based on respect and love for the bee colony. Nina's Bees beekeeping ethics means there are no Queen excluders, plastic frames or pesticides in the hives. The company is actively involved in the rescue and rehoming of wild bees from public spaces. Unlike in conventional beekeeping, all Nina’s Bees hives were born from natural swarms and all their colonies build their own comb, determining the colony size and population dynamics, including mix of sexes like drones and worker bees.
Nina, the founder of Nina’s Bees, believes that when the communities lean about the essential role of bees in our eco system, people naturally become more connected and invested in the environment that surrounds us. Nina educates children on the importance of bees to our ecosystems by conducting bee talks at local schools, gardening communities and local business club offering valuable information on how to grow bee-friendly gardens.
Together with their organic beekeeping practices and association with Native Oils Australia, Nina’s Bees creates safe, pure and effective skincare products that work. All products have been certified to be “MADE SAFE”, “CRUELTY FREE” and “AUSTRALIAN CERTIFIED TOXIC FREE”. Sustainability is at heart of this small business. Nina's Bees partnered with Native Oils of Australia to source single origin, Australian-grown native essential oils and responsibly sourced organic oils and butters for all their products. Nina's Bees and NOA apply circular model "Reuse, reduce, recycle", where the same oil containers are being returned, cleaned and refilled with the same ingredients on regular basis. In this way they have reduced hundreds of units of waste from going into landfill over the last 4 years. Nina's bees products are packaged into recyclable containers and mailed using recycled cardboard boxed.
Nina's Bees efforts to create effective, yet 100% natural products in a sustainable way have been noticed by the beauty industry.
