BEES & OILS: A Short Story


by Diana E. Natalie Johnson

When you have a pear tree that bears forty dozen, you pick pears, give away pears, and cut up lots and lots of pears. You soak them in bowls of water with Lemon essential oil so they don’t oxidize and turn brown. Then you freeze those pears, so you can eat pears all winter long in yummy pear crumble with a drop of Nutmeg Vitality™ or Clove in the recipe. But still there are more pears…which fall to the ground, and BEES LOVE THEM!

Your excess pears, the one’s you haven’t given away yet, are sitting in a bin in your garage, where a couple of resourceful bees are hiding. Your friend drops something off and gets stung by one of the garage bees. So you grab some Lavender and Purification® essential oils for her to stop the sting!

It gets trickier because some of the pears inevitable begin to spoil so you place them into green waste, where the bees find them, and as we well know, when one bee finds a treasure, he sends a miraculous signal to the whole team, and you have a swarm around your pile of rotting pears! So you make a spray bottle with Lemongrass and Citronella and Peppermint essential oils.

You spray the bees away from the area long enough to do the only other thing you can think to do…grab a shovel and throw dirt over the rotting pears. But you somehow strain your low back doing this. Your favourite essential oil pain blends come in real handy in the bath that night…AromaSiez™ (7 drops in a handful of Epsom Salt), and Deep Relief™ topically applied and massaged in before bed. You load your Dewdrop™ ultrasonic diffuser with Lavender and Cedarwood for melatonin production, and have the best night’s sleep.

The next morning your back is feeling better but the bees are back hovering over your squishy pear dirt pile so you arm yourself with your super effective natural insect repellent spray made with essential oils and wait until dusk to shovel the whole mess into a green bag and tie it tight until frostier days arrive.

With a sigh of relief, you prepare for bed, loading your diffuser with Lavender and Cedarwood essential oil as always, so you can get the best sleep and dream of next year’s pear harvest.
