  • Our Story
    Our Story

    Garry played around with bees as a hobby over 10 years ago, enjoying the natural aspect of taking honey from the hive to the table. His family were amazed by the beauty of bee keeping not only for the consumption of your own honey but also supporting the environment by keeping bees. The more Garry and his family learnt about the importance of keeping bees in our existence the more he began to grow his number of hives and today Garry is able to provide enough honey for his family and friends as well as export overseas enabling for a profitable business to support his family and offer employment.

    Garry’s wife Kerri had the vision of being able to use the skin care range for their growing family and due to popular demand of friends wanted to be able to offer it to the rest of the world creating the vision of “For the world to experience a natural pathway to skin & healthcare” The older children have a keen interest in getting a bee suit on and helping out where they can.

  • Our Team
    Our amazing team

    The team at G&K Davis Ltd work together in unison because of the like minded passion for working with bee products and the overall ethics of the company for example the welfare of the bees. The company attempt to care for the bees as if they were in a natural hive therefore there is limited commercial methods used such as clipping of the queens wings which is sometimes a procedure used by larger companies to avoid swarms. When the honey is taken off there is always adequate honey left to feed the bees naturally during the quieter months.

    The unique qualities and skills of the staff combine together to create a well organised environment and the staff feel proud to provide a great service to their customers with frequent updates on their honey, samples, equipment and timeframes. The staff welcome enquiries and are available to discuss your individual needs, your chosen method of packing and other services you may need due to their wide range of networks.

New Zealand Propolis

Our dedicated CEO Garry Davis is the craftsman of our premium natural propolis extract products. Disappointed by the propolis extract available on the current market, Garry spent many years perfecting the timely crafted method of extracting propolis in olive oil instead of current methods of extracting with ethanol, alcohol and even embalming fluid.

Our propolis products are 100% natural and stand alone in the market of pure New Zealand natural propolis and olive oil extract in one application.

Propolis tinctures

Propolis is powerful against aggressive bacteria and is therefore a natural antibiotic taken internally Propolis supports the immune system in various ways firstly the antimicrobial properties suppress harmful bacteria and infections further it also stimulates the immune system and raises the body’s natural resistance.

Proplis tinctures come in three strengeths; Mild, Medium and strong. A stronger strength tincture would be used prior to the winter season to boost immunity whereas a mild tincture would be beneficial for everyday use OR when feeling run down.

Propolis Roll-on

Propolis used in this form has a variety of benefits including improving acne, skin infections, irritations, bites, burns and cold sores. Simply apply to the area three times a day. Our propolis roll on will clean the area and allow the skin to heal in a natural and gentle way. Propolis is a natural antibiotic it is called “A gift from the bees” as the bees make propolis and apply it to the hive to protect any bacteria entering their hive.

Propolis is natural and safe to use on all skin types. Our propolis roll on has been specially formulated to contain high amounts of propolis through a time consuming method of labour to give you the best honest ingredients without containing any chemicals or preservatives

Propolis Serum

Propolis extract combined with the natural goodness of avocado oil and olive oil enhances the qualities of this natural serum. Avocado oil is high in Omega 7 which decreases in our skin with age. Omega 7 works to protect your skins natural barrier to prevent moisture loss and plumps the skin. In our serum avocado oil and olive oil is difused through a powerful propolis extract offering all the healing qualities of propolis in a safe way.

New Zealand Manuka Honey

Why Manuka Honey?

Honey has been used since ancient times to treat multiple conditions. It wasn't until the late 19th century that researchers discovered that honey has natural antibacterial qualities. Honey protects against damage caused by bacteria. Some honey also stimulates production of special cells that can repair tissue damaged by infection. In addition, honey has an anti-inflammatory action that can quickly reduce pain and inflammation once it is applied

But not all honey is the same. The antibacterial quality of honey depends on the type of honey as well as when and how it's harvested. Some kinds of honey may be 100 times more potent than others.

Hydrogen peroxide is a component of honey. It gives most honey its antibiotic quality. But some types of honey, including Manuka honey, also have other components with antibacterial qualities. Another antibacterial component in Manuka honey is methylglyoxal (MG). MG is a compound found in most types of honey, but usually only in small quantities. In Manuka honey, MG comes from the conversion of another compound -- dihydroxyacetone -- that is found in high concentration in the nectar of Manuka flowers. MG is thought to give Manuka honey some of its antibacterial power. The higher the concentration of MG, the stronger the antibiotic effect.
