DATE OF TRAVEL: April 10, 2007
WHY YOU SHOULD GO:
1. Because their products are all natural. Their products are always packed fresh from their beehives to retain full nutritive and medicinal value.
2. Because as personally tested, their products really are among (if not) the best! And the prices are very reasonable (actually very cheap!).
3. Because you can learn more about bees and beehives by going to Museo Sa Ilog!
You may try our favorite products: Propolis Bath Salt (works on small bites and skin allergy); Eucalyptus Bath Gel (works really well when you have a cold! it helps a lot!); Facial Moisturizer (really makes your skin soft-er!). :)
Ilog Maria is a honeybee farm in Silang, Cavite (along Aguinaldo Highway) that harvests honey, beeswax, pollen, propolis, royal jelly and bee venom to make all natural products that are not only cheap but also very effective. Their products range from sea salt scrubs to ointments to moisturizers to oil to soaps to candles to bath gels to everything else that can be made from their bees. While they don't have any other outlet (to keep their costs low and sell their items low as well), you can order their products online. They also have a museum and you may ask for a tour guide if there are 50 people or more. For more information on what they use on their products and why they are good for you, click on this.
HOW TO GET THERE:
From Tagaytay Rotonda (Taal Lake on the right), we turned left on Aguinaldo Highway (instead of going straight). We saw a small sign that leads to Ilog Maria on the right side and just followed it.
BUSINESS HOURS: 10am-5pm, Tuesdays-Sundays. They're closed on Mondays and most holidays.
