A bee is a small little insect and one that many of us have some degree of fear of. For some of us, this is due to allergies, but others simply worry about getting stung and experiencing the associated pain. However, the reality is that, had it not been for bees, it is likely that humans would never have inhabited the planet. And if bees go away, we will probably not be able to continue to live on earth either. It is thanks to bees that we have flowers and that these flowers are able to reproduce through pollination. Indeed, our interconnection with bees is stronger than most people will ever realize.
Flowers are one of nature's most beautiful gifts to us. Indeed, there are various religious and ancient texts that discuss how important flowers actually are, often being referred to as nourishment for the soul. Without flowers, our planet would be a dark, desolate and unlivable place. But the bees do more as well! Besides pollinating our flowers in one of the most biodiverse ways (due to the fact that a bee will make a stop at different species of flowers), bees also create honey. This is one of nature's most important natural medicines and sweeteners. It helps in a range of ailments and it tastes good to top it off. Honey is a truly magical substance, one that, just like bees themselves, has played a very important role in the development and evolution of mankind.
Bees create other things as well. Royal jelly, for instance, is one of the most sought after commodities on the planet. It is a mystery how this particular product actually works, but it has been proven not just to rejuvenate, but to actually extend life as well. All of this clearly demonstrates just how important bees are, and how many benefits they give to our planet.
