About Mother Bee™
Founded in 2014, Mother Bee™ was started by Cheryl Williams. She named the company after her mother who gave her the secret family recipe.
Soothe & Protect was the first product in the line, using the original formulation of beeswax and essential oils. The origins of Soothe & Protect can be traced all the way back to Cheryl’s great grandfather and it is still the flagship product within the Mother Bee™ range.
It wasn’t until Cheryl’s vet saw the healing benefits of her homemade cream on an injury-prone horse that she was encouraged to take the product to market. O’Reilly & Fee Vets became her first customer and the rest is history!

We spoke to Cheryl about what is in store for the brand.
What inspired you to start the company?
“I was left the formulation of Soothe & Protect by my Mum after she passed away. It had been in the family for 100 years or more. Hence the name of the company: Mother Bee™.”
Do you have a favourite Mother Bee™ product?
“My go to has to be Soothe & Protect. There’s nothing it won’t do.”
What are your plans with the business for the future?
“To keep developing new products and expanding the business.”
Why did you choose Riding & Harness Stuff to stock your products?
“It has a different element to the equestrian market than some retailers and we are excited to have them on board.”

There are products for humans, horses and dogs. Here are a few of our favourites…
We’re so used to dry, cracked hands as equestrians. The Hand Rescue contains beeswax to help lock in moisture and work as a barrier against the elements.
You’ll want one of these in your car, at the yard and in your coat pocket. The unique blend of beeswax and natural oils helps to soothe and protect chapped lips.
Ideal for sensitive horses, the Bit Butter prevents rubs in the corner of the mouth and promotes acceptance of the bit. It can also be used under FEI and Turf Club rules.
Wet, muddy conditions can cause irritation to the skin. This natural but powerful formulation includes vitamin A, B & E, as well as lavender and oregano. The oregano has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, whilst the lavender is antiseptic and anti-inflammatory.
If your dog suffers from dry or rough skin, then try this natural balm. A blend of oils, including lavender and beeswax, help to nourish your pet’s paws and nose.
The flagship product of the Mother Bee™ line, Soothe & Protect is suitable for all animals. The special recipe that features beeswax, tea tree and camphor not only repairs skin but forms a protective barrier.
