Beeswax is made by the bees, derived from the nectar of flowers. Honeybees fly 150,000 miles and visit over ten million flowers to collect enough nectar to produce one pound of wax. Burning beeswax can be beneficial to your health. Beeswax creates negative ions that make floating particles in the air heavy. This helps to clean the air you breathe. Beeswax burns up to 30% longer than paraffin. Beeswax is a renewable resource.

Benefits of Raw Honey:
Raw Honey is honey that has not been heated over 108 degrees. After that temperature honey begins to lose some of its benefits. Research shows that honey improves bronchitis, asthma, and allergies.
Honey is also used to alleviate depression, fatigue, insomnia and skin disorders, to hasten the healing of wounds, facilitate digestion, as a sedative and antitoxic, and for its antiseptic effects. Honey has natural anti microbial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Honey can be used as a preservative.
Pollen is one of the most complete foods in nature. It increases the body’s resistance to stress, disease and speeds up the healing process. All Pollens possess proteins, amino-acids, sugar, minerals, vitamins, hormones, fats, aromatic substance and of course, water.
Pollen contains 25% to 30% protein by weight, provides all 22 known amino acids, minerals, water-soluble vitamins, enzymes and carbohydrates. Honeybee Pollen is a natural low calorie food. Pollen is a microscopic dust that the bee picks up while collecting nectar. Worker Bees mix Pollen with their own enzymes, pack it into her leg pouches and carry it back to the hive. Honeybees carry out more than 80% of all plant pollination.
Royal Jelly is 50% protein and includes amino acids, lipids, carbohydrates and trace minerals. Royal Jelly is what causes an ordinary egg to become a queen. It serves as food for all young larvae, yet it is the only food for queen larvae and makes up a large part of the adult queen bee's diet. Royal Jelly has a stimulating effect on people suffering from fatigue and/or depression.
Propolis is a combination of substances that is collected by the bees from tree sap, sticky grasses, and other sticky substances. Propolis is used to seal cracks and secure combs in the hive. It is also a powerful anti-biotic, causing the inside of the beehive to be one of the most sterile environments found in nature. In laboratory tests, propolis has exhibited a variety of interesting anti microbial, antiviral and anti tumor properties.
