APITHERAPY

is the medicinal use of honey bee products and has been practiced since ancient times. The more common hive products we use are honey, pollen, propolis, and royal jelly but apitherapy also includes the use of bee stings (or venom).  At Chinook Honey Company we believe that the health benefits available from the bees are endless and we offer the following quality apitherapy products. But first, what is propolis?
PROPOLIS is produced by bees from tree resins, such as poplars and various conifers and used to sterilize and seal the hive.  Often called "nature's penicillin", it has been used by man for thousands of years for its remarkable antibiotic, ant-fungal, anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-oxidizing qualities. It is a natural broad spectrum antibiotic that activates the thymus gland.

  Propolis has been experimentally found to destroy bacteria, viruses and fungi (i.e. cold sores). This 30% propolis tincture is for internal or topical use.

 “Planet Bee” ROYAL JELLY Capsules

  Royal jelly is a creamy substance produced by the nurse bees. It is particularly noted for its benefit to the reproductive system, longevity enhancement, resistance to disease, increased stamina and general well being. It is very beneficial for the skin, for basic cell regeneration & bone marrow production and probably most important for balancing the endocrine system as an anti-depressant and to enhance our ability to handle stress.
