There are many unsung heroes in the animal world, but one in particular is the bee.
Pretty much 90% of the worlds wild flowering plants depend on pollinators like bees in order to continue living.
Humans can be quite destructive at times and ruin the ecosystem that these pollinators need to survive. So by doing things to help save the bees and other pollinators, we are doing things to keep our food source is sustainable.
That is why the UN designated May 20 as World Bee Day.
We can do many things to help support the bees and other pollinators because they currently are under threat.
- Plant flowers
- Buy raw local honey
- Support business that use sustainable farming practices
- Protect bee colonies
- Raise awareness of this dire issue with those in your social circle
Where do essential oils fit in?
When gardening with essential oils, you can repel bad insects which reduces the need to use pesticides. You also are able to attract good insects like pollinators to ensure your garden grows.
I like to use a pollinators spray on the leaves of my flowering fruit and vegetable plants to make sure the bees give them plenty of love.
It is my way of letting bees and other pollinators know that my yard is pollinator friendly!
If you want to use good quality essential oils in your garden and help support pollinators, I can help you order what you need.
