“I started doing research,” he says, adding that he was inspired to find a way to up the healing properties of his products by infusing them with botanical extract oil. “I thought, what if I could make my honey a #supersuperfood”, he says.
Next, Yakovlev had to master the process of getting the honey just right and making their product stand out from competitors. “Beezy Beez is special because we use a special process where we cream the honey, which many other companies do not do,” Yakovlev says.
This is a combination of liquid and crystalized honey placed into a machine and spun for two days before the extract is added. This process, according to Boris, also helps to ensure that consumers are getting an even distribution of Botanical Extract with each serving.
In addition to its cinnamon-flavored Creamed Honey, Beezy Beez also offers a Botanical Extract honeycomb “straight from the hive,” as well as pain-relieving Balm.
“We use our own harvested honey for those. They are our staple,” Yakovlev says, the latter of which has been popular among athletes and UFC fighters.
Floyd Mayweather’s personal bodyguards, for instance, have written in to rave about reduced joint pain and deeper sleep as a result of the products. Beezy Beez's catalog also includes botanical extract lip balm, and water-soluble oil tinctures.
