I am still an old fashioned fellow, and capitalism is a beautiful thing to me. If there's buyers and sellers, I'm good to go with charging for aromatherapy.Cdt/scent therapy relaxes some of us:thumbsup:. If somebody doesn't want to buy a hive of bees, but wants to pay me to sniff my hives... Happy customers, happy beekeepers That's the rule of the land.
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 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.

I don't know the history of this, but Dr Stefan Stangaciu of Canada is doing some neat things with apitherapy. www.Apitherapy.com
Interesting. I've yet to meet a beekeeper that has the ability to chill for more than a few minutes?maybe I should charge people to sit in my barn in Oregon, it smell deeply of that sweet beehive scent. It's overpowering, and you can chill with bee's buzzing all around you.
Wow! THAT may be the understatement of the decade here in Beesource. Strange practices and strange about everything else too. I'm so stuck in the mud that I think "honey pairing" is a far fetched gimik used to help people promote themselves and their self absorbing egos.Inhaling from the back of the hives inside a beehouse is quite commom in Slovenia. Beekeeping seems to have a place for many strange practices.
