About Us

We are a small-batch, manufacturer of 100% natural, hand-made skincare products, utilizing royal jelly, beeswax and honey sourced right here from our honey bee sanctuary in OSR gardens, Richmond VA.

BCakes combines beekeeping with natural skincare and folk remedies, passed down from generation to generation

From early childhood I was fascinated with Honey Bees and beekeeping, and as I grew older I came to understand the disproportionate role these tiny little creatures play in the well-being of entire ecosystems. As a keystone species, the health of our environment depends on the health of our honey bees, and vice versa.

I’ve spent years planting trees, shrubs and flowers in my garden that benefit honey bees, and in return these girls produce nourishing royal jelly, beeswax and honey that help keep our bodies healthy and our skin protected. BCakes products are 100% natural and plant-based, except for the honey bee ingredients that come straight from my backyard honey bee sanctuary.

Since 2005

I’ve combined my passion for beekeeping and environmental stewardship with my mother’s herbal remedy recipes to create products that nourish body and soul.

I’m so happy you’re here and I look forward to sharing my passion and products with you!
