DID YOU KNOW?
Bees know how to make propolis, an exceptional antibiotic that protects the hive from attacks from pathogens. This remarkable world of the beehive has existed for over a 100 million years. During this time bees have developed an extraordinary "vibratory" sense that enables them, among other things, to detect the slightest change in human emotions. Ancient peoples regarded bees as sacred, intuitively recognising their invaluable role in maintaining biodiversity, and learning how to benefit from the incredible powers of the treasures of the beehive to preserve health, hygiene, and beauty. Today, science is becoming aware of the threats to the survival of bees and is honouring the benefits of Apitherapy, the ancient medicine of the beehive. This book provides an introduction to energetic apitherapy, which develops the subtle emotional qualities of beehive products, and advocates a revolutionary form of GENTLE beekeeping, which is based on the language of bees and seeks to maintain the common well-being of the hive, humans, and the environment. Last but not least, the book is full of easy, natural recipes for preparations around the home, to help deal with everyday injuries and ailments, and to promote both inner and outer beauty.
