SHUNGITE LAVENDER HONEYEike Rappmund
Save the Bees – Save our World
Welcome to the site of the Goddess’ Nectar: My Shungite Honey Bee Lavender Project. The bees have become a natural part of the Star Seedz Farm, and one of my greatest passions. Saving bees means saving our ecosystem. On top of it, they are producing the most tasty honey with so many different healing properties.
A bee’s honeycomb represents the heart chakra and the life’s sweetness. The amazing tasty honey and many more organic products coming from the honey and the wax they produce, are just a few of the valuable treasures we would lose if we don’t save our bees. We rely on our bees for our environment and biosphere. They don’t only have a key role in our ecosystem, but they also have a wonderful Shamanic and spiritual meaning.
Let’s act all together and bring the Mallorcan ecosystem back into balance!
WHY ARE HONEY BEES SO IMPORTANT?
A wise man once said “If the bee disappeared off the face of the earth, man would only have four years left to live.” The quote is usually attributed to Albert Einstein even though it was actually proclaimed by Maurice Maeterlinck, a Belgium-based Nobel Prize winner.
POLLINATION and WILDFLOWERS
It is estimated that without the natural pollination carried out by bees, we would lose between a third to half of our food supply. Ecosystems are complex webs, and the loss of bees would have a profound impact on the integrity of our natural habitats.
Without these crucial pollinators, plants would struggle to procreate. Wildflowers in particular depend on the attention of bees to spread their pollen. Did you know that approximately 80% of our wildflowers are pollinated by bees? As one of the most important pollinators, honey bees are responsible for completing the wildflowers’ reproductive cycle, which means that without them, our countryside would quickly become less interesting and less colorful and beautiful. And even more worrying: as a key component of many food chains, the loss of wildflowers would be devastating.
HONEY BEES PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE FOR OUR HEALTH AND LIFESTYLE
The disappearance of honey bees would trigger an inevitable chain of events that could actually impact our health and nutrition intake. Losing these pollinators could lead to a lower availability of crops, which are an integral part of our food intake and that provide essential micronutrients for human diets. Without these crops, the risk of more people suffering from vitamin A, iron and folate deficiency, would increase.
DEATH OF THE BEES
Since the 1930s it is estimated that we have already lost a staggering 97% of our flower-rich grassland to agriculture (using pesticides), and increasing urbanisation. Given that bees rely entirely upon flowers as their food source, it is unsurprising that their populations have begun to suffer.
In Mallorca alone, the bee population has fallen between 10% and 15% over the last two years. Mallorca has currently only 30% of the actual amount of bees that the island would need in order to enjoy a well balanced ecosystem.
If we are to preserve the natural beauty of our countryside and the structure of our ecosystems, actions need to be taken to help save the bees.
At the Star Seedz farm we are proud to support and save the honeybees. We understand the importance of the role our bees play in maintaining our ecosystem.
- We believe in treatment-free beekeeping (no chemicals used on beehives).
- No artificial feeding (we leave the bees more than enough honey so feeding isn’t necessary).
- Shungite Honey (link to the below paragraph on Shungite) is kept 100% raw and unfiltered to retain the honey’s natural beneficial qualities!
- Our focus is on raising treatment free honey bees (no chemical treatments used), in an all natural EMF & WiFi-free environment.
Unfortunately today’s technologies, such as computer monitors, laptops, tv’s, radios, microwave ovens, Wi-Fi routers, smart meters and mobile phones, all use electromagnetic waves in order to function.
These frequencies are extremely harmful to our environment; to our natural vibrations as well as to the bees vibrations. When the frequencies around the bees are disharmonious, their energy fields are disturbed, immunity is compromised, natural recovery and rejuvenation abilities are reduced. This in turn makes the bees more susceptible to diseases and pests.
THIS IS WHERE SHUNGITE COMES IN
The first time I read about Shungite was about 5 years ago and I knew this stone would become a part of my life. I travelled to Shunga with my beloved Russian friend Tatjana and she showed me the biggest lake I had ever seen, full of this miraculous stone.
Shungite is a unique mineral known as “the Stone of Life”, due to its numerous protective and healing properties. It is applied for water purification, electromagnetic frequency (EMF) protection, as well as physical and spiritual healing. Shungite and shungite-bearing rocks have to date mostly been found in Karelia, Russia.
It’s atoms form fullerenes which are allotropes of carbon, made of 60 carbon atoms in a hollow sphere, resembling a soccer ball at the molecular scale. For some time it was believed that fullerene could only be formed in laboratory conditions. Therefore the scientists’ astonishment when fullerene was found in Shungite from Russia. The unique molecular structure determines its incredible healing qualities.

So what role does Shungite play in relation to bees and beehives? Well, shungite has been shown to attenuate toxins and radiation in its environment by reversing the electromagnetic fields to a biocompatible rotation. Once relieved of these harmful burdens, bees can once again function at their natural peak efficiency.
SHUNGITE IN THE STAR SEEDZ FARM’S BEEHIVES
Our Shungite beehives have Shungite powder mixed into their exterior paint, in addition to having Shungite nuggets placed at their entrance. We also put Shungite powder in the beehives. When the bees walk through the Shungite powder it adheres to their legs, then it is carried both inside the beehive, and outside where the bees harvest their nectar/pollen.
During spring and summer 2021 we are doing a study on Shungite bees and honey production. We will post updated information on this project on my Vlog.
THE MANY HEALING PROPERTIES OF HONEY
Honey not only protects against damage caused by bacteria, but some honey sorts can also stimulate production of special cells that repair tissue damaged by infection. Hydrogen peroxide is produced by honey, which is what gives it the antibiotic quality. Honey also possesses antiseptic and antibacterial properties. This sweet gift from the bees is an ancient remedy for treating infected wounds. This has recently been ‘rediscovered’ by the medical profession, particularly where conventional modern therapeutic agents fail.
THE STAR SEEDZ LAVENDER HONEY
If you are a lavender lover and grower, you surely have discovered that bees love lavender in bloom. Lavender is believed to help promote calmness and wellness. It is also said to reduce stress, anxiety, and possibly even mild pain. The lavender plant is robust and beautiful and has a wonderful calming smell. This is why I love to have the lavender taste infused in my honey.
The Lavender Honey produced at the Star Seedz farm is all organic and delicious, and has the particular soothing quality of lavender.
It is with joy that I can contribute to save the bees on Mallorca, and spread the healing properties of Shungite, lavender and honey.
Our goal at the Star Seedz Farm is to bring back the bees on the whole island
We purpose different ways of collaboration
WAYS TO ENJOY YOUR OWN HONEY IN EASY STEPS AND HELP RESTORE THE BEE POPULATION IN MALLORCA AT THE SAME TIME:
Participate in one of our workshops where you will learn about:
- Organic bee farming.
- Shungite and its healing properties and usage for the bees and the beehives.
- The healing qualities of honey.
- The spiritual meaning of bees, and their importance for our ecosystem.
- How to create your own bee farm and contribute to the bees’ survival and to our ecosystem on Mallorca or where you live.
Contact us to know more about the workshops and upcoming dates.
OTHER WAYS TO SUPPORT THE BEES:
- Buy Organic – The more Organic food that’s grown, less pesticides are used, which harms the bees and contaminates their honey.
- Plant Bee friendly flowers and plants; Lavender, Rhododendron, White Clover, Cotoneaster, Heather, Purple Toadflax, California Lilac, Bachelor’s Buttons, Bellflower, Thyme, Forget-Me-Not, Yellow Mustard, Sage, Escallonia, Cranesbill, Aster, English Daisy, Rosemary, Mint, Oregano, Borage, Calendula, Lily of the Valley, Shrubby Veronica and Blackberry/Raspberry are all bee friendly. *This list was created by Prof. Elizabeth Elle, Simon Fraser University.
- No Chemicals – Stop using chemicals in your garden or lawns. The chemicals will not only harm the bees and other pollinators, but will also enter the groundwater supply. Many farmers now buy seeds coated with clothianidin and other systemic insecticides. These can cause the entire plant to become toxic to bees and other insects. The same coatings may soon appear on garden seeds. Check your seed packets carefully!
- Give them a Drink – All bees need a steady clean water supply, especially during the warmer summer months. Consider placing a bird bath in or around your garden, the birds and the bees will both appreciate it!
- Spread Love – One way is getting some wildflower seeds and spreading them where you can. The more food sources for our wild pollinators the better. Let’s not forget how nice the flowers will look too!
