When you keep about 50 hives in a 2 county area of Ohio, the task can really keep you buzzin'!
And the bees are even busier. The list of beneficial products produced by the bees goes on and on.
HONEY has long been recognized as a natural remedy and has been used as a medicine for thousands of years. It has antiseptic properties and can be used as a remedy for ailments from sore throats to burns and cuts.
BEESWAX retains its ductility and tenacity under greater ranges of temperature than any mineral, plant or insect wax.
BEE POLLEN is often referred to as nature's most complete food. Human consumption of bee pollen is praised in the Bible, other religious books, and ancient Chinese and Egyptian texts. It has long been prescribed by traditional health practitioners-including the fathers of Western medicine Hippocrates, Pliny the Elder, and Pythagoras-for its healing properties.
ROYAL JELLY is an extremely nutritious, thick, milky-white creamy liquid secreted by the hypopharryngeal glands of the nurse bees. Queen bees live exclusively on royal jelly and it accounts for their incredible size, fertility, and longevity.
PROPOLIS is often called "Russian Penicillin" in acknowledgement of the extensive research that has been done by the Soviets.Research shows that propolis offers antiseptic, antibiotic, anti-fungal, and even antiviral properties. One of the most valuable properties of all the natural bee hive products is that they exhibit true immunostimulating characteristics. Unlike many modern medical drugs, propolis does not depress the immune system, but instead boosts it.
In our busy lives today its hard to find time to take care of yourself. Many times you have to do it on the run. We decided to start a line of personal care products where each and every item would contain at least one of the beneficial products that come straight from the hive.
