Established in 2015, Busy Bee Natural Ltd was created to provide a unique, natural cleaning service for customers in Cardigan and the West Wales area.
Why green cleaning?
Every time we use a substance around our home, pour it down the drain or spray it into the air, it has an impact on the environment. It also affects us. Busy Bee Natural founder, Karen Stinton, was inspired to create an eco friendly company after her husband became ill:
“I’ve always had an interest in using natural alternatives to the chemical cleaners that fill most supermarket shelves. But when my husband Ian needed a double lung transplant, my priority was reducing his exposure to any harmful chemicals, particularly when it came to the air he was breathing. So, that’s when my research into green cleaning products began.
This research (and lots of experimentation) helped me to develop the amazing green cleaning formulas we use at Busy Bee Natural today. Using traditional, natural ingredients, my team and I have created a range of highly effective products that clean thoroughly, without exposing people or the environment to harmful substances.”
Creating a clean and healthy environment is our top priority. We pride ourselves on delivering excellent standards of cleaning whilst giving our customers peace of mind that their families, pets, office staff and holiday guests won’t be exposed to harmful chemical residues.
Handmade Natural Cleaning Products
Tough on dirt, gentle on the environment
Busy Bee Natural’s success as one of the leading eco friendly cleaning businesses in West Wales proves that our natural cleaning products get results. Years of experience have helped us create recipes that are perfectly balanced to give excellent green cleaning power without the use of harmful chemicals. In fact, they’re so good, we’ve decided to share them with you – we just hope you enjoy using them as much as we do!
All Purpose Cleaner
From sticky kitchen worktops to grimy bathroom sinks, our effective all-purpose spray makes light work of cleaning your home. For everyday cleaning, simply spritz on and wipe off, it’s as easy as that! If you come across stubborn dirt, no problem – just leave the cleaner to work its magic for a few minutes before wiping. Safe to use on all surfaces, it cuts through grease and grime in no time while infusing each room with the delicate scent of sweet orange.
A powerful remedy for those tougher cleaning jobs, this abrasive paste is great for removing stubborn dirt from ovens, sinks and any other hard, non-porous surfaces in need of a good scrub. Infused with astringent lemon and orange essential oils, not only will this feisty natural cleaner leave your surfaces sparkling, but your house will smell pretty amazing too!
Cleaning the toilet is never anyone’s favourite part of the housework but luckily our natural toilet cleaner does most of the work for you. Simply sprinkle it inside the bowl, give the sides a quick scrub with the toilet brush, go and do something more interesting for a few minutes, then come back and flush. Cleans and disinfects, with a vibrant eucalyptus scent that leaves your bathroom smelling lovely and fresh.
We all want our homes to smell great, especially when people come to visit. A sophisticated blend of zesty lemon and fragrant lavender, our deodorising spray is great for banishing cooking smells, pet scents and other unwanted odours. You can also use the soothing mist to perfume clothes and fabrics which can help keep moths at bay. It’s so safe and aromatic, some of us at Busy Bee Natural even use it as a body spray!
Quality natural ingredients

How do we make our products?
Although our cleaning product recipes have been rigorously tested by the experts to make sure they’re as safe and wonderful as we say they are, we make them by hand right here on the premises. Think aprons and wooden spoons, not lab coats and test tubes. That’s the beauty of using natural ingredients! Quality is all important to us. So, we only use the finest, purest ingredients and mix our cleaning solutions in small batches to ensure a consistently high standard.
Reducing our impact on the environment
By cleaning your home with our traditional, natural products you can be sure you’re reducing the amount of harmful substances in the environment. As well as reducing you and your family’s exposure to chemicals, you’re also not washing them into the watercourse or disturbing the delicate bio-digestive system of your septic tank. We try to make sure the outside of our products is as environmentally friendly as the inside! That’s why all our packaging is made of recyclable or biodegradable materials.

Supporting the community: Our handyman, gardening and companion services
Supporting the community: Our handyman, gardening and companion services
We’re always keen to help others, which is why we decided to set up extra community services. This idea grew organically from our relationship with our natural cleaning customers and Karen’s experiences when caring for her husband.
We found that many of our older, isolated or more vulnerable customers needed a bit of extra help with other daily chores and activities. We also discovered that help can be hard to come by. So that’s where we stepped in! It inspired us to create a handyman and gardening service alongside a home help and companion care service to provide much needed support for people throughout our community.
If you’d like to know more about how we can make life easier for you with any of our services, get in touch! We’re always happy to have a chat and see how we can help.
