Our Story

Welcome to our family! Laila Apiary was born in the Fall of 2019, following the purchase of our first beehive. We had no idea of the transformation we were about to undergo and of the many wondrous benefits these little bees would bring to our lives. 

BEEIndulgent, Laila Apiary’s skincare line, was a fast follower but fulfilled a lifelong dream of mine to have my own skincare line. I am thrilled to share this dream with you and all you need to do is follow some simple principles –

PAUSE. FOCUS. CONNECT.

Our Mission

CRAFTING HIGH-QUALITY NATURAL SKIN CARE PRODUCTS TO SUSTAIN ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT ECOSYSTEMS; YOURS.

Our Philosophy Aligns With Our Approach

We believe that we shouldn’t cause harm in order to make a good product. After all, we don’t just sell these products, we use them! 

Ever since I can remember, I needed a creative outlet to regain my center – a burden lifted with a sigh of relief. I was very fortunate that this outlet found me in modeling, where I was able to see many beautiful places and meet incredible people.

As you can imagine, it was a constant battle to make sure my skin looked its best which required experimenting with different products. I learned different approaches from my friends and noticed that many of the products had natural ingredients, which were very gentle but invigorating.

To see what else I could use, I started working with different combinations of herbs, milk and honey. At first, it was bath soaks and then face masks that my friends loved. It was so lovely to have that moment of relaxation when my schedule was full.

When I came back home to the US, I was blessed to meet my husband and we quickly created a home and a family. As a mother of three children under the age of 10, it’s nearly impossible to have time for yourself. Or even the opportunity to get yourself to look decent without constantly attending to something, or someone.

For the last 7 years, I would scramble to get dressed and then finish up my makeup in the passenger seat of the car, trying to apply what I could, as my husband drove full speed to our destination.

In 2018, my husband and I got our first beehive, initially thinking we were going to get some yummy honey to help with both my husband and son’s allergies. One day, after my husband attended a beekeeping meeting, he said “Honey, I just learned that people make lip balms and creams with beeswax! Didn’t you want to do something like that?” I didn’t think that such a simple question would bring about such profound change for me.

It is thanks to these wonderful little bees that I was able to rediscover my passion and use their naturally produced ingredients in this way. 

It’s our mission to craft high-quality products, with natural ingredients, that not only help my family but you and your family as well.

Every day we make conscious decisions regarding what type of food we put into our bodies, it’s just as important to think about what we put on our bodies.

Thank you for reading my story, supporting us and I hope that you remember to BEEINDULGENT.
