Propolis, a substance processed by bees from resin which they gather from trees and plants, is used to safeguard the health of the hive, and research studies have shown that its powerful antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agents can be beneficial to humans too. It has proved effective in treating skin complaints, wounds and burns, respiratory problems such as asthma and bronchitis, and in alleviating arthritis, rheumatism and gastro-intestinal complaints. Most importantly, it has shown that it could be a natural alternative to antibiotics and that it may have the ability to boost the immune system. The author explains how to use it as part of everyday care, what products are available and how to make your own preparations. Full resources and references are included.

It is about 100 degrees but the bees seem to love it. I digress....
As a second year beekeeper, the more I know about bees, the more I want to learn about bees. By now we have had our second honey harvest but there is MUCH more we can get from the hive. Propolis, a word supposedly coined by Aristotle meaning Pro - Before Polis - The city is another bee product.
Bees use it protect their hive and make it more environmentally friendly. I wanted to learn more about this miracle bee product that has pharmacy companies abuzz.. Just into the book a few pages but loving the style of the writer and all of the great new information. I am dropping my other reads and focusing on this one.
Hope to see you by the hive. Dave aka, The Bee Boy out!!
