    I'd be happy sell folks all the bee air they want.

    Yes, really. I am not sure about the picture shown above. It is obviously faked. (?) But hive air therapy became widely known in European apitherapy a couple of years ago. It helps people with lung problems. It helps breathing and slows infections of the lungs and so on.

    A device was developed, with a bee proof mesh/cloth in a lid, a small ventilator and a mask connected to it like shown above. I see if I can find pictures.

    Here is a short video that was shown in the German TV.

    This is the website of the "inventor"...(at least he was the first to develop a device. Hive air as a treatment is described in old literature.)

    One of the joys that I vaguely remember from last summer is the aroma of the hive when you first open the top cover. Today I can only gaze longingly at my hives. High temp forecast is 20 degrees.

    Bernhard, that is one large drone cell on that hive! I wonder how many mites could reproduce in there?

    research has shown that bacteria in the soil has properties that help relieve stress in the body. Gardeners are typically happier people than those who never fool with one.

    The further man pushes himself from nature the further from the little benefits that are found in nature like the scent of beeswax, honey, and propolis. Not to mention a host of other things. While this does seem odd, there is almost always a grain of truth to these things even if it has been blown out of proportion.

    As beekeepers who get into hives alot we dont have to pay. haha

    I need help!

    I am currently working on an artistic research about the Api- therapy that entails breathing in the
    air from a bee hive. I'm collecting information (even rumours or tall tails) for a book about it.

    I am in search of historical information that helps trace the impact of the therapy air from the hive.

    Critical questions include:

    - Where and when did hive inhalation originate?
    - Are there particular cultures that utilise it more than others?
    - How does the shape of the hive affect the breathing experience?
    (photos of different methods would be greatly appreciated)

    Secondary questions are:

    - How has the experience evolved over time?
    - What role does technology play in it?
    - Is hive inhalation preformed only for sick people?

    I'm interested to see if anyone can help point me in the right direction. Any feedback is much appreciated.

    It seems to be more popular in Europe than in America. All we seem to do here is crack jokes about it. I just found this site recently for a machine that vaporizes the propolis units. There are a couple more European sites if you try google.

    I don't know the history of this, but Dr Stefan Stangaciu of Canada is doing some neat things with apitherapy. www.Apitherapy.com

    I can't quite tell whether these are beds or coffins.

    Bee air makes me happy, but that may be because I'm working the bees

    Wow! I just came across this thread while searching for a way to remove the coloring from dyed candles.
    Yes indeed the smell of a beehive can be quite calming. Or maybe not? The smell of a beehive that has a fair population of wax moths is not so calming. As a matter of fact I've come across a hive or two that had this acrid smell. Upon opening and confirming the dead out I've become "uncalm". This smell triggered my uncalm sensory glands and caused me to take the hive(s) and throw, stomp, break, destroy, put asunder etcetera said hive(s). Once this was done I have to admit I was pretty darn calm. I guess some would call my actions violent and counterproductive. Being a child of the earth and one that is completely in tune with my mother I call it purging, cleansing and cathartic. Yes I may have destroyed some expensive bee equipment and I just might have shouted obscenities so loud that the neighbors just might have called the po-po, again, but that's all good because I was simply getting rid of the demons. Temporarily.
    Anyway, all that aside, anyone ever small moth balls?
