The story of bees started more than one hundred million years ago and, if our planet will treat them with respect and love, hopefully, will go on for many years from now. Honey is one of the oldest sweeteners in the world, as well as a renowned medicine used in many parts of our planet.
Between 3.000 BCE and 350 BCE, ancient Egyptian pharaohs considered the bee to be their royal symbol, while Greeks and Romans believed bees were the messengers of Gods. The ancient Celts joined the group of bee worshipers, seeing bees as messengers between worlds and bringers of wisdom.
Nowadays, many of us see bees only as bringers of honey, but this too is enough to appreciate and love the hard work these tiny creatures do for us and our planet.
