Propolis is a natural antibiotic made by our Honeybees. Propolis is made by the bees to help sterilize and protect the hive against diseases and infection. The Greek definition of Propolis means "in defense of the city" , kind of ironic when we are talking about a bee hive that can house up to 60,000 bees at a time. Propolis helps to fight off the spread of bacteria, virus and fungi that would pose a great threat to the close quarters of a bee hive. Propolis is especially rich in amino acids that are key to a healthy immune system. it contains a high content of vitamin A, Vitamin B1, B2, B3, Biotin and Bioflavonoids, which help to boost the immune system. Propolis has been used for centuries as a natural cure all, because of it antibacterial, anti fungal, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Propolis promotes healing and is used in the ointment form for healing cuts, burns, wounds, mouth ulcers, acne, skin infection, insect bites and can even aid in healing of an existing wound. Propolis is generally non-toxic and it fights bacteria so it is safe to gargle with for sore throat, and sore mouth. Over all we here at HoneyBells believe not a medicine cabinet should be with out Propolis Cream.

And we think our day is busy.... In order to enjoy the sweet taste of honey it takes a lot of Busy Bees. First we have the Nurse Bees they take care of all the little baby bees. Then you have the Attendant Bees they work with the Queen feeding her bathing her and generaly keeping her happy. Keeping the hive safe are the Guard Bees they take turns standing watch over the door or entrance into the hive, not allowing in any intruders. We also have our Construction Worker Bees they are busy creating the wax foundation (which we call the Honey Comb) for the Queen to lay her eggs in. Now on to the the job most of us would not want the Undertakers of the bee hive, they have the unfortunate job of removing any and all deceased bees from the hive. Last but not least we have our Forager Bees, they are the ones that go to and from the hive gathering nectar and pollen. Thing is they have to gather enough to feed the entire colony which at it's peak could possibly contain up to 60,000 bees at a time. So here at HoneyBell's we have some really busy Bees!!!
