Mother Bee was founded in 2014 by Cheryl McWilliams. Named after her Mother, who left her the secret family recipe. This original recipe made with beeswax, natural & essential oils consequently would go on to become Soothe & Protect. It has been traced back to Cheryl’s Great Grandfather Thomas Wright, Co Tyrone. It now has a multitude of uses and still is the flagship product within our range.
This unique formula was only launched publicly after the encouragement of local Vet, Eric Smith. Eric discovered the healing properties of the cream and encouraged Cheryl to take it to market. O’Reilly & Fee Vets became our first customer, soon many stores and vets followed.
Here at Mother Bee we pride ourselves in how effectively the products work, and nothing goes to market until it’s proven to do exactly what it’s made for! The range is constantly evolving with new products being added regularly.
All our products are manufactured on site at Priory Cottages in Benburb, using sustainable natural ingredients. In addition to this we are lucky enough to have on our doorstep the historic grounds of The Servite Priory & Benburb Castle. This gives a fantastic setting to the hive and keeps us in touch with nature.
One of the most distinct and exciting products to develop in the Mother Bee range is Sweet Relief. Building on the original recipe the product has developed to offer, both the healing and soothing qualities of Soothe & Protect, but also fly repellent qualities via Organic Neem Oil. Sweet Relief is proving to be a saviour product for a number of our customers.
