Anybody else play about with bees ? I have 6 hives on my flat roof and we bbq within 2 metres of 2 of them. In the summer we have about 300,000 bees up there and i m sort of allergic to them but not quite epipen life endangering allergic. The grandchildren eat there as well. Both daughters have beehives in their gardens as well. I started candlemaking to use up some of the wax then got into making lip balms, petroleum jelly and things like that with the wax, then i started with the propolis and make tinctures of propolis with 80 per cent alcohol on a 20 per cent solution. Then i made some stretch mark cream (which worked both times for number 1 daughter) Propolis is amazing stuff that GMC agree cures some types of cancer) Because i love my bees that much i bought 3 manuka plants to go in the front garden. Because i ve got bees and they all die i bought a bat box so they could eat all the dead bees, just waiting to get some good bad shit to throw onto the allotment in the back garden. Now i have an owl box (empty at the moment) I think i get too much time off !
