    Our vision

    The ideologue of our philosophy is one member, Svitlana Volynets, who is a well-known apitherapist in Ukraine and the world and the founder of Apiproduct.
    We consider the Bee and the Woman as two figures who with their beauty, harmony, diligence, wisdom will save the World.
    WFor the Bee and the Woman, all spheres of activity are harmoniously united in life and form a hexagon of a bee cell. In the first (but not the main) place of this hexagon is the personality, its inner world, character, beliefs, principles, instincts – I – Bee, I – Woman
    The next is Work: for the Bee – daily, uninterrupted, which is the meaning of her life. No wonder the bee was called “working” in all languages. For a woman, work is a way to provide for the family and the pleasure of working with bees.
    The next corner is Family. For the Bee, the family is an evolutionary way of survival over the last 30 million years. For a woman, the family is a source of inspiration, shelter and comfort, which she herself creates, nourishes with her energy.
    Next up is Social Connectivity. In bees, it is a stable connection between bee castes (at the level of pheromones), which perform different functions and in combination act as one whole organism. For a woman, this is her realization and self-expression in society. The components are friends, the environment, culture, the Foundation, charity and a great desire to preserve and improve our world.
    The strongest connection is with Nature. There is no more harmonious combination than bees with the existence of nature.
    After all,
    without bees – pollination is not possible, and hence the existence of plants, and as a consequence of wildlife and humans. Woman connects with nature through beekeeping, farming, walking in the woods. It is in this union that the vital energy that nourishes her family gives birth to new ideas and stimuli.
    The most important thing is health. The health of bees depends on their individual and social (family) immunity, which is formed in the environment, the nest and with the consumption of food. Not being healthy, a bee dies, as does the whole family. For a woman, health is the basis for her work, social activities, preservation of family and self. Strengthening and maintaining the physical, psychological (mental) and spiritual health of women is possible by working with bees, consuming their products, saturating them with energy.
