Our bees in action!

Hear Carolina tell the Miele D'Oro Story in her own words

Beekeping is my passion since 2012

Hi, I’m Carolina, a beekeeper and the creator of Miele D’Oro, which means “Honey of Gold” in Italian.

Growing up in an picturesque town 30 km from Rome, my father introduced me to the wonders of beekeeping at an early age.

As both an art and a science, beekeeping cultivates patience, balance, and gratitude—all qualities that would later guide both my career and outlook on life.

When I moved to Australia in 2014, I intended to pursue a career as a Medical Scientist. Once arrived, inspired by the beauty of the Northern Rivers, I decided to follow my heart: I returned to my passion for beekeeping with 16 hives in the beautiful Tweed Valley.

Since then, my happy bee family has grown to 43 hives. While conversations around what we need to do to save the bees continue to be vital, I came to a surprising realization: my bees had saved me, bringing me closer to the natural world and to myself.

Naturally, beekeeping is a craft that moves with the changing seasons. During a prolonged drought, I couldn’t continue to harvest the honey I sold at markets, but I still had remaining beeswax…

Miele D'Oro benefits - Natural effective ingredients

The beginning of a bee-utiful journey

To keep my small business afloat, I turned to what I like to call ‘Bee Plan’.

Beeswax is a natural preservative, so I began creating a range of artisanal soaps and clean skincare products blended with beeswax, essential oils, and other natural ingredients.

Unlike many mass-produced brands, I don’t believe in a complicated, multi-step skincare routine that requires consumers to have a Ph.D. to decipher the ingredients list.

Unable to find what I was looking for in the traditional skincare market, I was inspired to share simple and sustainable skincare products that are handcrafted with love in small batches.

Sustainable small batches of skincare

Experience the unique synergy between the purest beeswax from Miele D’Oro’s bees, botanical oils and active ingredients.

Formulated for your skin to feel enriched, fresh and regenerated, Miele D’Oro clean and natural skincare range is handcrafted in small batches with passion and care.

Take a moment for yourself and enjoy the pureness and effectiveness of these signature beauty products handcrafted with only a few effective ingredients. Even the most sensitive skins love them!

Becoming one with the Natural World

My love for beekeeping was built on family bonds, and it inspired me to follow my dreams in an unknown country as I began a new journey.

It helped me realise my passion for creating all-natural products that refresh, revitalise, and rejuvenate the skin without harming the environment, and it continues to inform my vision for a skincare brand that embraces the beauty of all-natural simplicity.

As Miele D’Oro continues to flourish, I hope to share this love with you through upcoming beekeeping workshops. Interacting with bees requires you to surrender and trust in the process, ultimately empowering you to harness an inner strength you might not have known you contained. It certainly did for me.

I created Miele D'Oro products with just plants, flowers and beeswax to help you feel connected with nature and in balance with yourself.

Our mission

Empowering All Women

My mission is to empower women to feel confident and embrace their natural beauty.

I invite you to join me on this journey through the use of our premium skincare products. Together, let’s celebrate the strength, resilience, and confidence that make every woman extraordinary.

only fresh potent ingredients

I know how hard it can be to find the right ingredients for your skin: that0's why I’ve personally selected natural and potent botanical ingredients. Botanical extracts, essential oils, beeswax and unrefined butters are at the core of every product.

Ingredient lists are familiar and uncomplicated, allowing the pureness of the botanicals to shine.

limiting our environmental impact

I work closely with Native Oil of Australia to source single origin, Australian- grown native essential oils and natural ingredients creating zero waste in their process.

I choose 100% recyclable packaging for all Miele D’Oro’s products. I take pride in my personal commitment to ethical beekeeping practices : Miele D’Oro’s ’s bees are treated with the utmost care and respect, constantly ensuring their well-being.

Have you tried our
award-winning Raw Honey?

Miele D'Oro 100% raw honey
goes to your table straight
from the beehive.

The taste and character of this honey changes with the seasons, to reflect the blossoms of the Tweed Valley. 

It is cold-extracted in small batches to keep it fragrant, and fresh and to give you a unique flavoursome experience! 

Simple and sustainable
Skin Care

Beekeeping fosters an unparalleled love for the natural world

and I’m committed to honouring and celebrating the environment with our range.

I believe what counts is on the inside, which is why each of our carefully considered products are wrapped in minimal packaging—our soaps come only in paper, and our serums, moisturisers, and body lotions arrive “naked” in glass bottles.

I formulate, produce, bottle, and label every item, and I hope you’ll continue their sustainable journey by reusing the bottles to display flowers and hold brushes, or by refilling them with your essential kitchen ingredients.

Miele D'Oro acknowledges the Traditional Owners throughout Australia and their continuing connection to the land, water and community. Miele D'Oro pays respect to all Aboriginal communities and their culture; and to Elders past, present and emerging.
