Ilog Maria Honeybee Farm Haul

It doesn't get any more natural and unprocessed than this. Ilog Maria Honeybee Farm has been around for at least thirty years now producing honey, propolis, pollen, royal jelly and beeswax; further creating other natural handmade bee products like soap, shampoo, candles and more for affordable prices. By visiting their farm you can see how simple and honest their philosophy is, behind the store I witnessed three ladies sitting by the window making and packaging their soaps. All receipts were hand written and they only accept cash. They even limit their Virgin Honey to one per customer!

I recommend giving them a visit and even booking a tour on their website, which I now regret not doing. My family and other family friends were in Tagaytay for vacation so it was a spontaneous trip to the farm. Although if you are interested in purchasing some of their products and won't be able to make it to Tagaytay, you may also order online and have it shipped to Manila.

I have only tried the lip balm so far and I'm really liking it, it's similar to Burt's Bees but I like this one better. We were so overwhelmed with all the products that we ended up hoarding (this doesn't include the pasalubong we bought) but for once we weren't guilty because of the affordability.

    1. It's completely safe! All the bees are stored away and I didn't spot any on the loose :) That's exactly what I did!! The whole shop smelled really good too, kind of reminded me of Lush but in a more "natural" way.

  3. We absolutely love the smell and taste of honey, so this farm would have been heaven for us!! We'll have to find a bee farm to visit near where we live in Australia, because it looks like you had a load of fun!
