Honey Bees are actually considered for their powerful form of healing therapy by many people around the world. This type of therapy is referred to as Apitherapy – the use of beehives and bee products (honey, propolis and venom) to strengthen the immune system and aid in overall health. Apitherapy has been commonplace in Slovenia for many years. As a nation of beekeepers, there are eight hives per square kilometre and the Beekeeping Association of Slovenia has up to 11,000 members.
