Workshop on the basic principles of apitherapy. The healing effect of unprocessed honey has been appreciated since time immemorial. Honey is recommended in the "holy books." It is used as a home medicine, for fever, colds, sleep disorders and for gum disease. In the case of burns and scrapes, honey reduces the scar tissue, making the wounds heal better. Honey is antibacterial, antifungal, it even kills antibiotic-resistant bacteria. The healing power of Propolis is generally recognized. The cocktail of 270 different minerals, vitamins and trace elements makes it one of the most valuable natural products that work against bacteria and viruses. Bee wax is more than a building material for honeycomb. It is an important base for candles, wood and leather care products, anticorrosive and a component of cosmetic products such as lipstick, creams and mascara, and in pharmacy as a capsule for pills, warm cloths for osteoarthritis and rheumatism, neck pain and various allergies. Bee venom stimulates blood flow. Bees that have a lot of pollen at their disposal produce the most poison, which is formed between the 15th and 20th day. Royal jelly is the special material that turns a simple worker mortar into a queen. The only fertile bee that also lives 30x as long as an average worker bee. How do you learn more about Apitherapy? By making a reservation for the workshop Apitherapy. We will then make a delicious cough drink based on honey (you wish you had a cold) and a propolis cream, an effective remedy for dry eczema, rough spots and acne. This course will be given in Dutch.

Actually, the apiary is a craft place for processing bee products. This can be all kinds of varieties of honey, such as heather honey, linden blossom honey, willow honey, sea lavender honey, or as a common denominator: boschplaat honey. But care products such as soap or skin creams with propolis, beeswax and royal jelly are also processed here. With the motto “Delicacy at every tide” there is something for everyone to enjoy in the Bijenpark. Our sea lavender honey was chosen as the tastiest European honey in a test in the US last year. We are quite proud of that!
