Get the buzz on bees, honey, hive behavior, and all the things you can make with bee products in The Benevolent Bee. A honeybee hive produces much more than honey; it also produces pollen, propolis, royal jelly, beeswax, and bee venom. And humans have found uses for all these products. The Benevolent Bee will describe how and why the bees make these products, how they've been used by humans throughout the ages, and how beekeepers harvest the products. It will also present simple do-it yourself recipes for using the products in health and wellness, body care, nutrition, and craft. Beekeeper, herbalist, and artist Stephanie Bruneau explores six amazing products of the honeybee hive--honey, pollen, propolis, royal jelly, beeswax, and bee venom. Learn how to make a salve for burns and a cough syrup from raw honey; how to make a tincture, an infused oil, and a mouthwash from propolis, the anti-bacterial "bee glue" that lines the inside of the hive; and much more.

Honey was the first sweetener, predating sugar by hundreds of years. But, as well as its noted culinary uses, honey has been a long valued ingredient in folk remedies, beauty treatments, and household chores. This new book explores honey's unique medicinal properties - it is effective for healing wounds and burns, for soothing pain, for digestion, and as an antiseptic and anti-ulcer agent, an anti-fungal treatment, and a sleep-inducing aid. Honey is also a wonderfully nutritious and scented ingredient in beauty preparations, many of which you can make at home in the form of soaps, scrubs, facepacks, and moisturizing creams. And last but not least, it is of course a hugely popular culinary ingredient and preservative, adding distinctive flavor as well as sweetness to cakes, pastries, cookies, jams and chutneys, marinades and dressings, and sweet and savory sauces. This irresistible volume explores all the many properties and uses of honey in the home. Combining history, a guide to the different types, recipes, household uses, medicinal preparations, and beauty treatments, it demonstrates the amazing versatility of honey. Beautifully illustrated with 200 color photographs and artworks, this is a delightful source book of ideas you will turn to time and again.
