Carly Stein lives and breathes bees. She is a beekeeper herself, an advocate for saving the bees (and our food supply) through sustainable beekeeping, and the Founder + CEO of Beekeeper’s Naturals.

If you haven’t heard of it yet, Beekeeper’s Naturals is an incredible company with a simple purpose: to bring us the highest quality products from the hive and nurture a greater awareness for saving our bees. Their naturally-sourced superfoods are effective alternatives to some of your typical, chemical-based OTC medicines – and these superfoods have become an important part of Lindsey + Krista’s daily routines as of late, helping them feel their best by leveraging the magic of nature!

Carly’s story also has a way of making you want to keep bees, too! Should we?!?!  She’s so smart, so kind, and on a mission to #savethebees. This episode’s conversation includes…


  • How propolis changed Carly’s life + not being able to find any in Vancouver inspired her to start Beekeeper’s Naturals
  • Falling in love with beekeeping
  • The female-driven bee society
  • Why “organic” honey is actually extremely difficult to produce (even if it’s made on an organic farm)
  • Why we’re losing a disproportionate number of bees – and why that’s a HUGE problem!
  • All the bee products: propolis, pollen, honey, and royal jelly
  • Why Carly washes her face with honey
  • The benefits of CBD + how BKD created a unique CBD honey
  • Building up the Beekeeper’s Naturals business
  • Finding your dream job
  • The hardest part of running BKN
  • How you can turn your vision + passion into a business
  • Learning to ignore the BS stories we tell ourselves that hold us back
  • How Beekeeper’s Naturals will change the world (and how you can help)
