Apitherapy

Honeybees, miraculous creatures, and their products have been researched for centuries and used in for various treatments. The fact that honey doesn’t get spoiled and lose its properties by time and all those honeybees produce (such as propolis, royal jelly) in order to reproduce and protect their hives, attracted the attention of human beings and this branch of science is named as apitherapy. Apitherapy, as a general definition, is a type of alternative therapy that uses products that come directly from honeybees.

Main bee products are honey, beeswax, bee pollen, propolis, royal jelly, apilarnil and bee venom.
