THE BENEVOLENT BEE: CAPTURE THE BOUNTY OF THE HIVE THROUGH SCIENCE, HISTORY, HOME REMEDIES, & CRAFT
Author: Stephanie Bruneau
A honeybee hive produces much more than honey; it also produces pollen, propolis, royal jelly, beeswax, and bee venom. And humans have found uses for all these products.
The Benevolent Bee will describe how and why the bees make these products, how humans have used them throughout the ages, and how beekeepers harvest the products. It will also present simple do-it-yourself recipes for using the products in health and wellness, body care, nutrition, and craft.
Beekeeper, herbalist, and artist Stephanie Bruneau explores six amazing honeybee hive products: honey, pollen, propolis, royal jelly, beeswax, and bee venom.
Learn how to make a salve for burns and a cough syrup from raw honey; make a tincture, an infused oil, and a mouthwash from propolis, the anti-bacterial "bee glue" that lines the inside of the hive; and much more.
