Harvesting propolis from the hive – Like mining gold from ore.

Claiming what’s of value, According to the lore

Saving all the sticky goo, Picking out the chaff

What bees use to sterilize, We can use to heal a rash.

 

 

 

Recently, a reader wrote to ask us how to clean propolis.  I guess we kind of skipped over this step in our previous posts on propolis. Maybe because we don’t do very much to it!

Propolis is hard to clean, because it is so sticky. We’ve tried the pouring hot water over it method, and what you get is a few pieces of wood that float to the top and the rest of the debris is stuck in a hot sticky blob of propolis. Not very successful.

What we do is break as much of it up as we can if hard, or flatten it out, if sticky, into a flat “pancake”. As we do this, we pick out bigger chunks of wood or insect parts. Do this on tin foil, and after picking out what you can, wrap it up flat and put it in the freezer. Once frozen, open the foil and break it

into little pieces, picking out more debris. Be sure to do this over newspaper or plastic covering. Propolis is very messy and will stain counter tops and hands! Whatever drops on the floor will be there until you scrape up every little crumb with a putty knife!! Do outside or in the garage if you can!

That’s really about the only way we have found to at least get out the big pieces of debris. And really, what is in it that makes it unclean?? Maybe a little wood, from scraping, some bee parts, or a few beetles. But remember, the propolis kills just about every germ, virus, fungus, bacteria there is! The propolis is used to purify and sanitize the hive, so it’s killed all the germs in the debris. So, whatever debris is left, is not enough to affect the weight significantly, and a little bit of wood or bee parts, isn’t going to hurt. It will all filter out in the last step once you have made tincture or oil.

And be sure that whatever you use to make your tincture or infused oil in, it needs to be a container you don’t care about and with utensils you don’t need to reclaim!  You won’t be able to ever get them clean again! Just plan on dedicating them to the making of propolis products.

And, you can reuse the propolis several times.  Just add a little more to replace the weight of what was infused in the first batch.  You can test the viability of propolis by putting a tsp. of the used propolis you’ve filtered out, into a cup of milk and let it sit out for 3-4 days.  If the milk doesn’t spoil, the propolis is still good.

We figure, it’s kind of like making apple cider. Ya gotta have a little worm in there to add to the flavor and make it REAL CIDER!

 

Deuteronomy 28 

1 “Now if you faithfully obey the Lord your God and are careful to follow all His commands I am giving you today, the Lord your God will put you far above all the nations of the earth.

All these blessings will come and overtake you, because you obey the Lord your God:

You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country.
Your descendants will be blessed, and your land’s produce, and the offspring of your livestock, including the young of your herds and the newborn of your flocks.
Your basket and kneading bowl will be blessed. You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out.

“The Lord will cause the enemies who rise up against you to be defeated before you. They will march out against you from one direction but flee from you in seven directions.

The Lord will grant you a blessing on your storehouses and on everything you do. He will bless you in the land the Lord your God is giving you.

The Lord will establish you as His holy people, as He swore to you, if you obey the commands of the Lord your God and walk in His ways.

10 Then all the peoples of the earth will see that you are called by Yahweh’s name, and they will stand in awe of you.

11 The Lord will make you prosper abundantly with children, the offspring of your livestock, and your land’s produce in the land the Lord swore to your fathers to give you.

12 The Lord will open for you His abundant storehouse, the sky, to give your land rain in its season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations, but you will not borrow.

13 The Lord will make you the head and not the tail; you will only move upward and never downward if you listen to the Lord your God’s commands I am giving you today and are careful to follow them.

14 Do not turn aside to the right or the left from all the things I am commanding you today, and do not go after other gods to worship them.

Life is hard, sometimes

But hold on to hope

From God’s creations.

There are many studies found on the National Institute of Health and GreenMedInfo websites regarding propolis and colon cancer.  The studies done in vitro (in a lab dish on cells) and on animals, show that propolis inhibits the growth of colon cancers sells in various ways.  Unfortunately, there are no clinical studies, as yet, on human beings, so this encouraging news is preliminary and needs further study.  Despite the limitations of the studies done so far, if I had cancer, I would certainly consider the use of propolis as an adjunct therapy  to whatever else was prescribed.

Here are summaries of some of the promising studies I have found.propolis tincture

“Chemoprevention of colon carcinogenesis by phenylethyl-3-methylcaffeate”, by Rao CV1, Desai D, Rivenson A, Simi B, Amin S, Reddy BS, states that previous studies have established that caffeic acid esters present in propolis, are potent inhibitors of human colon adenocarcinoma cell growth, carcinogen-induced biochemical changes, and preneoplastic lesions in the rat colon. The present study was designed to investigate the chemopreventive action of dietary phenylethyl-3-methylcaffeate (PEMC), from propolis,  on azoxymethane-induced colon carcinogenesis,the colonic mucosa and tumor tissues in male rats. At 5 weeks of age, groups of rats were fed the control diet, or a diet containing 750 ppm of PEMC. At 7 weeks of age, all animals except those in the vehicle (normal saline)-treated groups were given 2 weekly  injections of azoxymethane (cancer inducing agent). All groups were maintained on their respective dietary regimen until the termination of the experiment 52 weeks after the carcinogen treatment.

The results indicate that dietary administration of PEMC (from propolis) significantly inhibited the incidence and multiplicity of invasive, noninvasive, and total (invasive plus noninvasive) adenocarcinomas of the colon. Dietary PEMC also suppressed the colon tumor volume by 43% compared to the control diet. Animals fed the PEMC diet showed inhibited formation of colonic tumors by 15-30%. The precise mechanism by which PEMC inhibits colon tumorigenesis remains to be discovered.   Find this study at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7757981

In a study from 2008,  titled,” Growth inhibitory activity of ethanol extracts of Chinese and Brazilian propolis in four human colon carcinoma cell lines”, by Ishihara M1, Naoi K, Hashita M, Itoh Y,  and Suzui M,  alcohol extracts of  Chinese and Brazillian propolis were tested on  four human colon carcinoma cell lines.  The findings indicate that the ethanol extracts of propolis contain components that may have anticancer activity.  Some cancers cells succumbed after only 72 hours of treatment.  Thus, propolis and related products may provide a novel approach to the chemoprevention and treatment of human colon carcinoma.  This study can be found at    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19578776.

The study found an anti-metastatic effect in mice and considerable cytotoxicity in both wild-type and chemoresistant human tumor cell lines.

A study from 1995, called , “Caffeic acid phenethyl ester induces growth arrest and apoptosis of colon cancer cells via the beta-catenin/T-cell factor signaling”, by Xiang D1, Wang D, He Y, Xie J, Zhong Z, Li Z, Xie J, the effects of caffeic acid phenethyl ester (in propolis) on human colon cancer cells. Using two human sporadic colon cancer cell lines (HCT116 and SW480), they tested for cell growth inhibition, cell cycle and apoptosis induction.  Caffeic acid phenethyl ester completely inhibited growth, and induced G1 phase arrest and apoptosis in a dose-dependent manner in both HCT116 and SW480 cells.  Results of the study suggest that caffeic acid phenethyl ester merits further study as an agent against colorectal cancers.  The abstract of this study can be found at  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16926625.

“Greek propolis exhibits antiproliferative effects against human colon cancer cells”, done in 2010, by Harris Pratsinis, Dimitris Kletsas, Eleni Melliou, and Ioanna Chinou, tested  diterpenes and flavonoids, from Greek propolis, for their activities against human malignant and normal cell strains. They were found to be the most active against HT-29 human colon adenocarcinoma cells, without affecting normal human cells.  this study is found at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7757981.

“Chilean propolis: antioxidant activity and antiproliferative action in human tumor cell lines” published in 2004 by Russo A1, Cardile V, Sanchez F, Troncoso N, Vanella A, Garbarino JA. tested Chilean propolis for its antiproliferative capacity on KB (human mouth epidermoid carcinoma cells), Caco-2 (colon adenocarcinoma cells) and DU-145 (androgen-insensitive prostate cancer cells) human tumor cell lines. Results showed that this Chilean propolis sample scavenged free radicals and inhibits tumor cell growth.  Find this study at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15556167.

“Artepillin C in Brazilian propolis induces G(0)/G(1) arrest via stimulation of Cip1/p21 expression in human colon cancer cells”, from 2005, by Shimizu K1, Das SK, Hashimoto T, Sowa Y, Yoshida T, Sakai T, Matsuura Y, Kanazawa K. added Artepillin C (from propolis)  to human colon cancer cells. It dose-dependently inhibited cell growth.  Artepillin C appears to prevent colon cancer through the induction of cell-cycle arrest and to be a useful chemopreventing factor in colon carcinogenesis.

“Cytotoxicity of portuguese propolis: the proximity of the in vitro doses for tumor and normal cell lines” from 2014, states that  in vitro and in vivo data suggest that propolis has anticancer properties.  The phenolic extracts from Portuguese propolis  was evaluated using human tumor cell lines  – -breast adenocarcinoma, non-small cell lung carcinoma, colon carcinoma, cervical carcinoma, and hepatocellular carcinoma, and non-tumor primary cells. The studied propolis presented high cytotoxic potential for human tumor cell lines. Propolis phenolic extracts comprise phytochemicals that should be further studied for their bioactive properties against human colon carcinoma. In the other cases, the proximity of the in vitro cytotoxic doses for tumor and normal cell lines should be confirmed by in vivo tests.

What do I want to do when I grow up?

My answer always was

Grow flowers and herbs,

Make wreaths and such

But bees and chickens?

Not even a thought!

For many, many,  years, as a second grade teacher, I did a get-to-know-you activity with my students during the first week of school.  We designed All About Me T-shirts (on paper), adding different pictures and details about ourselves, to share with other classmates.  One section was to draw a picture of what they wanted to do when they grew up.  I always did a shirt design, too, and the kids thought it was funny that I drew something for “what I want to do when I grow up”.  I explained to them, that mine referred to when I retired, and could choose what I wanted to do with that part of my life.  What did I draw?  – always something to represent herbs,  flowers, and wreaths.  I saw myself growing herbs and making dried arrangements and wreaths with my herbs and everlasting flowers – something I loved doing, but just never seemed to have time for while teaching.

So here I am, 2 years retired, and what do I find myself doing?  I’m out in the garden, planting and weeding and harvesting herbs and flowers!  But not for making wreaths and dried arrangements.  Instead, it’s for use use in our BEEpothecary products, to compliment the amazing bee propolis!  It hit me today, as I was out harvesting lemon balm, oregano,  calendula, comfrey, lovage, thyme, mint and yarrow,  that I AM doing pretty much what I said I wanted to do when I grew up!  Pretty cool!  Of course the beekeeping and making beehive products were not even a blip on the radar when I was teaching.  The beehive products and a business to boot, not even an idea in our minds when we first got bees!  We just wanted pollination for our gardens and some honey!  Little did we know that some reading and research would lead us in this direction.  Our BEEpothecary adventure is an exciting, unanticipated addition to this next phase of life.

I’ve used herbs myself medicinally, for years, when doctors couldn’t help me or traditional medicine didn’t work.  And I’ve grown herbs and flowers for decades, but never really did much with them, because I just didn’t have time.  The harvest usually came in late August, right when I was heading back to the grind of getting ready for a new school year.  This year, with a great

spring and summer of warmth and rain, I ‘ve been able to harvest my herbs once already,  and today – a beautiful 75 degrees – I was able to harvest them a second time.  And Laurie has quite a garden going, from which we will get even more herbs to use.   It’s a good thing, too, since our business has grown to the point that we are now making 5 gallon pickle buckets full of herb-infused oils!  We’re going to need a lot to get us through the winter months!  It gives me great satisfaction to be able to use these natural treasures to make useful skin care and health products that others can benefit from.  Making things from something you have helped grow with your own hands and sweat and toil, is quite satisfying.  And working with God’s bountiful and beautiful creations – the plants and the bees and the animals –  always leaves me awestruck.

Now tomorrow, the plan is to clean out the chicken coop, after practicing the deep bedding method all fall and winter and spring – which means nine

chickens?

months of layers of straw, chicken poop, wood shavings and more chicken poop.  Now this task should be interestingly awful –  but awestruck, NO!  I will be donning my muck boots and gloves and probably a mask to do this!  But I guess it is the price to pay after benefiting from God’s little chickens and their yummy eggs for all these months.  I’ll let you know if I survive!

10This is what the Lord says: “When seventy years are completed for Babylon, I will come to you and fulfill my good promise to bring you back to this place.

11For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

12Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.

13You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

14I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.”

Psalms from the Hive, by Jeannie Saum

Beekeepers together,

Learning from each other.

Trying to protect our bees

And reaping their treasures.

We attended the Ohio State Beekeepers’ Summer Conference in Oxford Ohio at Miami University last week.  We were able to learn from sessions we attended and Laurie and I (Jeannie) got to share our excitment and passion for propolis and other hive products in two sessions as well.  As usual, people come up with the “I wonder” questions that we can’t answer.  So I always come back from these meetings with things to investigate!

We had two interesting questions about propolis and our bee products.  One questions was whether or not propolis would help tinnitus (ringing in the ears).  The gentleman who asked this said that he had been told to take lipoflavinoids  for his tinnitus, and since we had mentioned that propolis and honey contain flavinoids, he wondered if these would help him.  Here’s what I found:

Lipoflavonoid is a proprietary, over-the-counter, dietary supplement formula created in 1961, by NUMARK Laboratories.  It is claimed by the manufacturer to improve circulation in the inner ear, as a means of combating tinnitus (ringing in the ears).   It is with a bioflavinoid found naturally in the peel of lemons and also has vitamin B6 and B12 (B complex), vitamin C, niacin, riboflavin, thiamine, choline, inositol, and pantothenic acid.  ]There is significant anecdotal evidence that  Lipoflavonoid helps relieve the symptoms of tinnitus by consumers.   It has not been expressly approved by the Food and Drug Administration for this purpose.

So, as far as propolis being used in place of lipflavonoid, I would say it is not the same.  However, I did find some other references to propolis for tinnitus.  The following is from an Ezine Article:

Tinnitus is a symptom that can be caused by ear infections, foreign objects or wax in the ear, nose allergies that prevent fluid drain, aging, as a side effect of  medications and excessive noise exposure. A  natural antibiotic like bee propolis can be used orally, starting propolis tincturewith a few drops and increasing each day to 25.  A mixture of garlic, alcohol, propolis and honey can be made and is considered to be an effective home remedy to treat tinnitus. Put 200 grams by weight of alcohol (vodka) and ground garlic  into a lidded container (mason jar works well), cover tightly, shake and put it in a cool dark place.  Shake daily.   After 2 weeks, add 30 grams of propolis tincture and 2 tbs of honey, to the garlic tincture and leave it for a few more days. Now the mixture is ready to treat tinnitus; drink few drops before having meal. Increase the number of drops with number of days.

I am not sure if any of this will work!  But it certainly can’t hurt.  Propolis kills bacteria, viruses and molds, and it is also anti-inflammatory – which means it will reduce swelling and inflammation.  Besides trying it orally, I would suggest trying a few drops of propolis oil in the ears, once or twice a day.  If the tinnitus is related to any germ or inflammation, this might help.  It’s worth a try!

The secwoundstickond question we had from someone at the conference, was whether BEEpothecary’s Propolis Wound Salve was safe for use with cloth diapers.  Being well beyond the child rearing years, I was not aware that some diaper creams can ruin the absorbency of cloth diapers and not wash out in the laundry!   Who knew?!  I researched this on the web and found several blogs and forums on this subject!  According to what I read, from experienced cloth-diaper-using-moms – the ingredients in BEEpothecary Wound Salve are all safe to use on with cloth diapers.  The main  ingredients include olive oil, shea butter,  and beeswax.  These are all listed as safe for cloth diapers.

There was one other question asked in one of our sessions, that I can not for the life of me, remember!  If you were at one of our sessions, and asked a question not answered here, comment and let us know what it was.  I know a woman asked about the use of propolis for some disorder I had not researched, but I can’t remember what it was.  I would love to find our the information, if someone could jog my memory!

Job 5

“But if I were you, I would appeal to God; I would lay my cause before him.
He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted.
10 He provides rain for the earth; he sends water on the countryside.

Garlic Scapes Pesto

Cooking with Honey

by Laurie Dotson 
Garlic in the garden

Garlic in the garden

Sorry, No honey cooking today!  How about garlic.

For years, We had this strange plant growing in our garden.  At the time, I loved flower gardening. I had multiple large gardens in my yards.  I would add any new or throw away perennials people would give me.  And If I didn’t have room, I would make a new garden.  Big, Beautiful flower gardens. I had an oasis.

Every Spring and early summer, I would notice this plant. A hardy plant, that would grow a spiked shoot and then over night it would curl.  When it flowered, it has tiny little flowers and then it would grow these bulbs off the end.  Later the bulbs would drop and the next year I had more plants.  I loved the shape and the color. I would use them in flower arrangements and potted arrangements.  Still never knew exactly what I had.  Until one day, when I dig up a huge mound of them.     I eat everything.     So I took a deep swiff of it and then bit into it! Yeowzers! I had garlic! GARLIC!  All these years, I had Garlic. I love Garlic.  Garlic is a staple in my kitchen. It goes in everything I cook.  I could grow these, along with other herbs and make food for the family. But Vegetable gardening ? Never a consideration…until!

After a quick internet search on garlic. I learned how to care and grow garlic cloves.  I now have 200 garlic plants and that is where the garlic scapes come from.  What do you do with all your scapes??  Well we saute’ them with veggies, I roast them with meat, I cut them ups and add them to a salad… or I make this Garlic Scape Pesto is a great way to use something we get a whole heck of a lot of this time of year. When you grow two hundred heads of garlic, guess how many garlic scapes you get? That is correct – you get two hundred garlic scapes. That’s a lot.

Scapes are important to the garlic – it’s how more garlic plants happen. There are little seeds in the bigger round part, and if you leave the scapes in place, they would eventually burst open, scattering ripe seeds around, which will germinate and make more garlic plants. Unfortunately, in so doing, they draw nutrients away from the growing of the bulb they are on – and the bulbs are what is important to us. So, they all have to be cut off. And since we can’t stand to waste anything, we are working on finding ways to use them. They have great taste and very tender and the texture fabulous.  Get them early!

Fortunately, they are really wonderful in pesto, because we get all the great flavor and they get completely ground up, so texture isn’t an issue. And we LOVE pesto. I make as much of it as I can every summer and freeze it in ice cube trays to enjoy through the winter. Once the pesto is frozen solid, you can just pop the cubes out of the tray and store them in ziplock bags or other containers. You do want to have some trays dedicated solely to pesto and like substances though – the ice cube trays will absorb the flavor and pesto flavored iced tea is surprisingly un-tasty.

You will likely be able to find garlic scapes at your local Farmer’s Market this time of year, or maybe even in your CSA box. If you know someone who grows garlic, they might have some to share – they are worth looking for!

Garlic Scape Pesto

Serves: 1 & ½ cups
Ingredients
  • ½ cup chopped garlic scapes
  • ½ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • ⅓ cup lightly toasted pine nuts or almonds
  • ½ cup fresh basil, packed tightly – then roughly chopped
  • juice of ½ lemon
  • kosher salt & fresh ground pepper to taste
  • ⅓ cup good quality olive oil
Instructions
  1. Add everything but the oil to the bowl of a food processor
  2. Process until everything is finely chopped and almost a paste.
  3. Leave the processor running and stream in oil
  4. It will only take a moment of two for the mixture to emulsify – turn off processor.
  5. Leave at room temperature for an hour or so to develop flavors- keep plastic wrap pressed to top surface to keep the top from turning brown.
  6. Can be stored in the refrigerator for several days, or can be frozen.

garlic scape pestoGarlic Scape Pesto is wonderful anywhere that you would use ordinary pesto – on vegetables, pasta, in sandwiches, topping a bowl of soup – just about anything, really. Experiment to find how you like to use it most!  I will be taking this on a camping trip with friends and using this in my dinner preparations.

Enjoy your Garden and Farm, and all it has to offer!
