The Honeycore community is filled with adorable pollinators, honey, stunning flowers, and agriculture.

If you’re a fan of Cottagecore, the colour yellow, flowers and sweetness, then we have the perfect aesthetic for you – Honeycore is the latest aesthetic to pique our interest, gaining more and more interest on social media in recent years.

In this blog post we will detail what the Honeycore aesthetic actually is, as well as some of our favourite Honeycore activities.

What Is Honeycore?

Other Names: Beecore | Key Colours: Yellow, gold, brown, beige, white, green | Related Media: Winnie the Pooh, The Bee Movie

The aesthetic revolves around the rural production and consumption of goods including breads and honey.

Similar to the Cottagecore aesthetic, Honeycore emphasizes rural and agricultural imagery streamlined by a yellow and brown colour palette and a heavy appreciation of honey, bees and other apiary-related things.

In Honeycore visuals, you will often find flowers, bees and honey as well as an emphasis on agriculture and conservation (in particular the conservation of bees).

Warmcore is a closely related aesthetic, through the heavy use of warm colours and flowers – similar to honey itself, which emits everything from golden yellow to dark brown colours and bees which are commonly active during warm weather.

Honeycore Activities


Of course, in the Honeycore aesthetic, the main activity to pass the time has to be beekeeping – what else could it be?

This activity is truly magical and is a wonderful way you can pass the time while caring for animals, the environment and flowers (maybe even some homemade honey!).

Beekeeping truly allows you to experience a part of nature up close and watch these fascinating creatures right in your own home.

But you have to remember, while they are incredibly cute, they may sting if startled or threatened, so make sure you keep calm and ensure the activity is ethical and beneficial to all involved (including the bees).

On top of creating your own honey, beekeeping is a wonderful way to help the environment as bees will pollinate other crops around you.

Honey Tasting

If you don’t have the room for a bee colony, or live with someone who is scared of bees (like me), another activity you can participate in is honey tasting – and we’re not talking about those you find in the supermarket.

If there are no farms around you offering this activity, you can actually buy honey tasting kits online.

But make sure you are cautious – it is recommended you don’t eat large quantities of honey or you will upset your stomach.

Learning About Bees

A fantastic way of contributing to the Honeycore community is by learning about bees through the plethora of resources available online, at local bookstores or at the library.

You could even take it a step forward by grabbing a pen and notebook to observe bees in their natural environment while on a walk around your neighbourhood.
