Savannah Bee Company grew out of owner Ted Dennards passion for bees, beekeeping and honey. Their specialty honey is the culmination of a 35 year search for the world’s best. Their beauty products deliver real benefits derived from treasured hive ingredients– beeswax, royal jelly, propolis, and honey. Ted Dennard is the founder, President and head beekeeper for Savannah Bee Company. An elderly beekeeper, Roy Hightower, sparked young Ted’s journey in the magical world of bees and honey and it’s been 35 years of it ever since. Ted backed into business _in 1999 when his friend opened a store in Savannah and began selling his tupelo honey. Ted’s passionate about sharing the world of bees with others and introducing new honeybee products to market.

My skin is not chalky or nearly as itchy as it was before. My boyfriend had even commented that it felt like I had shaved my legs really well. hahaha I told him it was because I had applied the Savannah Bee Body Butter after I shaved and that's what made my legs feel so silky smooth. I really love the fact that the product is free of parabens, preservatives and petroleum-derived ingredients. Best of all they do not do animal testing and their products are environmentally friendly and made in the USA.
I was completely surprised to see that Savannah Bee Company makes so many different products. They have an entire line of beauty/health products and gifts as well as honey. It has really opened my eyes to the wide variety of products that include honey. Savannah Bee Company has a body care line that includes everything from lotions and balms to body wash and body butter. They were so kind to send me a full sized Royal Jelly Body Butter  -Tupelo Honey- to try for myself. It comes in an adorable little yellow box making it a perfect item to give as a gift. The body butter is in a thick glass jar with a easy to open screw top lid. It smells absolutely delicious and spreads onto your skin like butter. No pun intended. It is truly a creamy silky body butter that leaves your skin super soft and clean. It's not greasy like some lotions and creams, it just kind of melts into your skin and conditions it perfectly. My skin has been so dry from this winter weather and it gets itchy so I have been applying this body butter each morning and night and have noticed a huge difference.

They have an entire line of Artisanal Honey too......Honey is like a fine wine that is created from flowers instead of grapes. The term "varietal honey" refers to the honey gathered from a single type of blossom. Each type of nectar has its own flavor and sugar composition depending on the flower that produces it, therefore the honey reflects the unique taste of the bloom. Savannah Bee Company is the leader in honey purity standards. Any honey poured by Savannah Bee Company as a specialty varietal honey must have a minimum of 80% pollen count. This ensures that the honey exhibits the best flavor and texture possible from the blossom crop. We take pride in our honeys' flavor and purity, so we don't process, over-filter, or add anything at all. They pour the best of the best of artisan Tupelo Honey, Sourwood Honey, Orange Blossom Honey, Wildflower Honey and Acacia Honey harvests. These artisanal honeys are beautiful gifts for any sweet occasion, as well as a delicious and nutritious treat for any pantry.

One of my personal favorite ways to purchase and enjoy honey is buying the raw honeycomb which you can get through Savannah Bee Company website. Raw Honeycomb is a true delicacy of nature. The hexagonal cells that create the comb are made by bees from beeswax. 550 bees have to visit 2 million flower blossoms to create 1 pound of honey, and then must consume 6 pounds of honey to generate 1 pound of beeswax. 
Beeswax is an amazing substance that is entirely edible and contains a variety of healing and allergy-soothing properties. Into each beeswax cell, bees deposit the flower nectar they have gathered from thousands of flowers. The bees then stand over the cell and fan their wings to evaporate the water from the nectar, leaving behind a rich, syrupy, golden substance that we know as honey. The cell is capped with a thin layer of beeswax and reserved as food supply for the colony. Enjoy Raw Honeycomb with slices of tart green apple and a wedge of salty artisan sharp cheddar for a delicious appetizer or dessert.
