The Insider recently featured Simply Bee on SABC 3.
September was Deaf Awareness Month!
Not something that we would usually be aware of but our grandson, Oliver, was born last November and diagnosed with severe to profound hearing loss in February this year. The diagnosis came as a huge shock to us. Thankful for modern technology, Oliver was implanted with his “magic ears” or cochlear implants in May. He has had access to sound for the last three months now and is doing so very well.
We, as a family, were so overwhelmed with the amazing team of doctors and specialists that Oliver has had throughout his journey to hearing, especially everyone at the Carel du Toit Centre at Tygerberg Hospital. Our daughter, Oliver’s mom, Bianka, has decided to put together an amazing fundraising and awareness project to facilitate helping children who are in the same situation as Oliver. Please take a look at the link to find out more about it. https://gogetfunding.com/ling-sound-toys-for-kids-with-hearing-loss/
Simply Bee will donate 10% of all online sales from now until the 9th of November (on Oliver’s first birthday) towards the Fundraising initiative.
Let’s help these little superhear-o’s make the most of their “magic ears”!

In the days before modern medicines, synthetic quick fixes and over-the-counter solutions for skin-issues – what did our ancestors do actually to keep their skins moisturized and in tip top shape?
They turned to mother nature and used what was available. Natural ingredients such as Oats, Honey, Egg, Milk, Fresh produce like apples, cucumbers, oranges were not only kept for feeding the family.
We found two easy and budget friendly skincare pamper treatments you can make at home – a cucumber and honey toner recipe and an apple & honey mask you can make at home
Honey & Cucumber skin toner:
Benefits: Cucumbers have anti-inflammatory properties, are loaded with antioxidants and nutrients like vitamin C and folic acid, making them an excellent ingredient for a DIY skincare cleanser/mask or toner.
2 teaspoons of Simply Bee Raw Honey
Puree the cucumber in a blender, strain and retain/collect the juice only.
Add the honey and mix until well blended.
Use a cotton pad/ball and apply morning and evening after cleansing and let it airdry.
Rinse you skin and pat dry.
Store in the refrigerator.
While we are at it and spring is just around the corner, we thought to throw in this lovely hydrating face mask as well.
Apple/Honey face mask:
Benefits: Apple contains vitamin A, B complex, C and minerals. It can help you skin get rid of acne, blemishes and dark spots. This is great news for those with sensitive skins as adding apple to your skincare routine proves to be a chemical free addition.

1 Fresh apple, seeds removed and chopped
1 tablespoon Simply Bee Raw Honey
In a blender or food processor, combine chopped apple with a tablespoon of raw honey and pulse until smooth.
Wash your face with your favourite Simply Bee Facial Cleanser and pat dry, apply the apple mask and relax for 15 minutes, allowing the magic to happen. Rinse off, pat dry and follow with your Simply Bee Toner and favourite Simply Bee Moisturizer.
