Psalms from the Hive

by Jeannie Saum

Bees and people buzzin’

Makin’ lots of new

Traveling, building gathering

And of course, tasting, too!

News of healing warms us.

Wounds, infections, and more stuff.

BEE treasures bless us!

Our new bees are installed and thriving.  They have been busy this spring bringing in stores of nectar and pollen, building comb and making honey, all so their queen can lay eggs.  We will reap the benefits of their hard work by collecting pollen and honey from the hives in the very near future.   We have been busy as well, making our bee-treasure- laden products and visiting markets and festivals.  We can be found at Pearl Market, downtown, every Friday from 10:30-2:00, through June.  We recently traveled to Delaware, Ohio for their great Arts Festival, and will be teaching about Hive Treasures and selling our wares at the Ohio State Beekeepers Conference at Miami University this coming weekend.

Along the way, we have gotten some great positive feedback from customers who’ve had success with our bee-hive products.  We met a couple at the Delaware Arts Festival who bought Pet and Poultry Wound Salve to try on their young chicken pullets, who had been pecked badly by the flock.  Mehgan recently wrote to us to report their success.

“I met you (along with my husband) last weekend at Delaware. We purchased some propolis and wound salve for our chickens. We’ve been using it on two of our pullets that were picked on. One had a dime sized wound and the other had a 1″ cut in her neck, both to the bone. We have been using the wound salve daily and the pullet with the dime size wound has completely healed after 6 days. The wound was deep enough that you could see her skull and at this point she just needs her feathers to grow back! The other pullet’s skin has fused and all signs of necrosis and infection are gone. The wound was very bad but is healing faster than we had hoped!  Just wanted to share the positive news!”

They took before and after pictures of one of their birds.

Mehgan reports,

“The “before” picture was taken 3 days after she was attacked.  The wound was completely through the skin and to her muscle.  She was given the wound salve for 1 week and the after picture is 2 days after we stopped putting the salve on. ”

  • A family our daughter was working with had success in healing up a dinner-plate-sized bedsore on their son’s back with wound salve.
  •   A friend of ours called to thank us for the great wound salve, that gave her relief from an itchy rash on her legs that were keeping her from sleeping.  She got instant relief when she remembered to use the wound salve!
  • A couple who bought propolis oil at the Pearl Alley Market, to treat their little dog’s ear infection came by the next week, to tell us it had worked.
  • Another lady tried our propolis oil sample on a wound when we were at Pearl Alley market 2 weeks ago.  She came back to buy some this past Friday, due to the improvement of her wound!

People are finding out, what we already know – PROPOLIS IS AMAZING!

 Psalm 18

30 As for God, his way is perfect: The Lord’s word is flawless;he shields all who take refuge in him.
31 For who is God besides the Lord? And who is the Rock except our God?
32 It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure.
33 He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights.
34 He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
35 You make your saving help my shield, and your right hand sustains me; your help has made me great.
36 You provide a broad path for my feet, so that my ankles do not give way.
