The Land of Milk and Honey

Cooking with Honey

by Laurie Dotson 

Today is the first, real day where the weather felt like Fall.  I’m looking out my dining room window. Watching the limbs of my crabapple trees dip low to the ground, because they are loaded with heavy bright red, cherry size apples. Crabapple butter soon!   My favorite morning spread on buttered toast. yummy!  I’ll post that one, soon!

Ohio in September

 It’s been so busy today that I forgot to eat.  This really has gotten me to think about having healthy snack, ready to eat at a moments notice. And I’m not talking apples and carrot, which I do have, but something fun for my mouth.  Which made me think of  a conversation I had earlier in the day with a customer.  She has young, school age children who are feeling better, since they have been taking our Propolis oil.  But the girls are not crazy about the taste of Olive oil and Propolis. I don’t blame them. It’s not a taste that I crave either:) But like them, I do take it every day!  So I suggested she add the Propolis oil in a salad and if she bought some beebread she could add that t0 the girls morning oatmeal or in a yummy smoothie. Propolis tincture can be added to any fruit drinks. Added it to anything if you don’t want to take it straight down your throat.  She laughed and asked for some recipes.

First off…

If you don’t know what Propolis is, it’s a resin that the Honeybee gather from tops of trees bud and the bark. They mix it with their enzymes and then they plaster the whole inside of the hive.propolis in the hive

 It helps insulate the hive, it helps clean the hive and it protects the hive from bacteria and viruses.  This same Propolis that helps fight sickness in the hive, will also protect us from the the same viruses and bacteria floating and hanging about us.  Propolis icontains flavonoids that are anti viral, anti bacterial, anti microbial, anti fungal and an anti-inflammatory Propolis can be a great dietary supplement to enhance your overall health and boost immunity.

BeeBread is Pollen and Honey mixed together. BeeBread is filled with everything you need to energize your day, workout or recovery.  It is loaded with  vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, protein and iron that will benefit people of all ages and boost the immune system.

Flying about from flower to flower, bees collect pollen in the pollen baskets on their legs and carry it back to the hive. In the hive, pollen is used as a protein source necessary during brood-rearing. The pollen pellets and honey are combined and ferment until the the hard shell of the pollen is dissolve. At that time the bee will feast on it and feed it to their grwoing young.

So back to my phone conversation and my hungry stomach.  How can you get Propolis and BeeBread

into you daily route?  Here are a three recipes!

Pineapple Coconut Bitescoconut bites

INGREDIENTS

Makes: About 20 cookies

Active Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 55 minutes

INGREDIENTS

FILLING

  • 1 1/4 cups canned crushed pineapple, slightly drained
  • 1 tablespoon BEEpothecary honey
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

DOUGH

  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 6 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsalted cold butter
  • 3 tablespoons Propolis Coconut oil or Propolis Olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

PREPARATION

  1. To prepare filling: Spoon pineapple into a small saucepan with honey and cornstarch. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until thickened, about 3 minutes. Let cool.
  2. To prepare dough: Meanwhile, process almonds in a food processor until finely ground. Add confectioners’ sugar; process to combine. Add whole-wheat pastry flour and all-purpose flour; process to combine. Drop butter by the tablespoon through the feed tube, processing briefly after each addition. Add oil and pulse once or twice. Add coconut, cornstarch, salt and vanilla and process just until the mixture resembles crumbly, fine meal, but will hold together if pressed.
  3. Reserve a scant 1/2 cup of tart dough to use as crumbled topping.
  4. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line mini muffin pans with 20 paper cups.
  5. Drop a scant tablespoon of dough into each paper cup. Press the dough into the bottom and up the sides of the cup, making a well in the center, to form a miniature crust. Spoon 1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons of the pineapple filling into each crust and top each with some of the reserved crumbs.
  6. Bake until the topping is golden brown and the crust is cooked through (watch carefully toward the end and move the pan to the bottom rack if the top begins to brown before the bottom crust is done), 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool in the pans.

 

 

No-Bake BeeBread Granola Bars beebread no bakes

INGREDIENTS

PREP TIME: 10 mins
COOK TIME: 5 mins
TOTAL TIME: 15 mins
Serves: 10 bars
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup packed dates, pitted  (dried plums or figs)
  • 3 Tbsp Flax seed
  • 1/4 cup BEEpothecary BeeBread 
  • 1/4 cup creamy salted natural peanut butter or almond butter
  • 1 cup roasted unsalted almonds, loosely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats (gluten free for GF eaters)
  • optional additions: chocolate chips, dried fruit, nuts, banana chips, vanilla, etc.
PREPARATIONbeebread no bake 2
  1. Process dates in a food processor until small bits remain (about 1 minute). It should form a “dough” like consistency. (mine rolled into a ball)
  2. Optional step: Toast your oats and flaxseed in a 350 degree oven for 15-ish minutes or until slightly golden brown. Otherwise, leave them raw – I toasted them
  3. Place oats, flax seed, almonds and dates in a bowl – set aside.
  4. Warm honey and peanut butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir and pour over oat mixture and then mix, breaking up the dates to disperse throughout.
  5. Once thoroughly mixed, transfer to an 8×8 dish or other small pan lined with plastic wrap or parchment paper so they lift out easily. (A loaf pan might work, but will yield thicker bars.)
  6. Press down until uniformly flattened. Cover with parchment or plastic wrap, and let set in fridge or freezer for 15-20 minutes to harden.
  7. Remove bars from pan and chop into 10 even bars. Store in an airtight container for up to a few days. I kept mine in the freezer to keep them extra fresh, but it isn’t necessary.
NOTES
*If your dates don’t feel sticky and moist, soak them in water for 10 minutes then drain before processing. This will ultimately help hold the bars together better.

Looking forward to seeing you soon, Laurie –

New batch of propolis tincture "brewing"

New batch of propolis tincture “brewing”

Psalms from the Hive

by Jeannie Saum

Holidays are over and  a new year’s coming on

Enough of rest and relaxation.  Jump in again, strong.

Re-branding and revising, making products new.

Get out that new propolis! Let’s start our new brew!

With hustle and bustle of the holidays behind us, the Saums and Dotsons are anxious to use these next few cold months of winter to reflect on and refocus our efforts to bring amazing bee products to the public.  We have decided we want to re-brand our company to focus more on the bees and the “BEE POWER” they can provide to our  health.  We also want to re-formulate some of our products to improve them,  evaluate  the demand for individual products, review customer feedback and decide on products to add, change or drop.  We also  will be  looking for new stores to carry our product and new venues to attend in the spring, summer and fall.

But most importantly, because of our success of the last few months, we desperately need to mix up some new batches of our proprietary

ingredients, so we can make products to replenish our supply!  We spent a night in December, processing our dried, home-grown herbs used in our soothing and healing oils.  We sat on tarps in the Dotson’s living room and  rubbed bags full of herbs through screens to crush into little pieces and then put each kind into big mason jars.   And now that we have lots of golden, healing propolis, we can get down to business, mixing up our brews.

Laurie and Jeannie got together on New Year’s Eve day to start  brewing.  (Jeannie had already started 3 big jars of propolis in vodka last week, which must be soaked and shaken every day for at least 2 weeks, to make our propolis tincture.)  We started the day infusing propolis in olive oil using our induction cooking burner, which keeps the oil at a constant temperature.  We mix propolis and oil in a ratio, by weight and heat to 120 degrees farenheit for 20 minutes.  Then we pour through organza to strain.  Now we have 2 big jars of wonderful propolis oil.

Next, we started our herbal oil infusions, by measuring our dried herbs by weight and pouring (measured) olive oil over them in the mason jars, to cover.  We set these herb-oil mixtures on a shelf and will shake them every day.  We’ll let them sit for a month or two and add more plant material as it becomes available, if we decide it is needed.  Then we will mix these herbal oils together to make our special soothing and healing oils to use in our skin care products.

Psalms from the Hive

by Jeannie Saum

Honey, natural, gold and pure,

Yes, we love its sweet allure.

But did you know, there’s more for you

Coming from this sticky goo?

Not only is it tasty to devour

It can also heal cuts, sores and wounds

With its power.

Honey, one of the valuable gifts from the beehive, is being used for more than just a yummy sweetener in food.  With two nurses in the family, I had heard my daughters talk about using honey- treated dressings on wounds and bedsores in hospitals and nursing homes here in Ohio. As I cared for my mother in her last days,  I asked every nurse and wound care specialist, in Kansas, if they were using medicinal honey. They all confirmed that yes, they were! Though none of them knew about the even more amazing benefits of propolis from the beehive, I was encouraged to hear that the natural healer, honey, was now widely accepted in the medical field. I’d like to share some information with you, documented with reliable research, on the medicinal uses of honey. I have paraphrased this information to be a little more understandable to us laypeople!   The entire article, “Understanding how honey impacts on wounds: an update on recent research findings”, by Abdul Seckam and Rose, complete with references to the research and a bibliography, is available at: http://www.woundsinternational.com

Understanding how honey impacts on wounds: an update on recent research findings

Honey has been used for centuries in wound care as a topical antimicrobial agent. Licensed wound care products containing medical-grade honey first became available in 1999 and are now widely used. Honey’s therapeutic properties come from its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. Laboratory evidence published in the past 5 years is helping the medical community understand how honey works to heal wounds and is now being integrated into modern medical practice. A range of medical honey products are available from several manufacturers for use on traumatic wounds, surgical incision sites, burns, sloughy wounds, and pressure ulcers.

Some researchers have criticised that clinical evidence to support the use of honey in the treatment of superficial wounds and burns was of low quality. By contrast, a review of 19 randomized controlled trials (RCTs) with a total of 2554 participants suggested that honey improved healing times in mild to moderate superficial and partial thickness burns when compared to conventional dressings. Another recent review of 33 RCTs noted that participants using honey had increased from 1965 in 2006 to 3556 in 2011, with a broadening in the range of wound types included, the choice of dressings available to clinicians, and the types of honey employed. Clinicians suggest that the effectiveness of different types of honey dressings used on similar wounds, be studied to test and compare the healing effectiveness of each.

Therapeutic properties of honey

Research has shown that honey has the following qualities: antimicrobial activity, deodorizing action, debriding action and osmotic effect, anti-inflammatory activity, antioxidant activity, and enhanced rate of healing. Essentially, honey can be regarded as an antimicrobial agent with the ability to promote wound healing.
Chemically honey is a complex substance whose antimicrobial components have been well established but , all honeys are not equal. Methylglyoxal was shown to contribute to the antibacterial activity of manuka honey, frequently used medicinally. Many honeys generate hydrogen peroxide on dilution, but manuka honey does not produce detectable levels and, as such, has been called a non-peroxide honey.

Honey has a broad spectrum of activity against bacteria and fungi. Gram-positive bacteria are

often involved in wound infection. Staphylococcus aureus – the most common cause of wound infection – has been shown to be inhibited by relatively low concentrations of honey. Antibiotic resistant strains, such as methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA), vancomycin-sensitive and vancomycin-resistant Enterococci (VSE and VRE) have shown to be inhibited by honey. A recent study showed that the growth of 15 cultures of Streptococcus species isolated from wounds were inhibited by honey.

Of Gram-negative bacteria commonly implicated in wound infection, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, enteric bacteria, Stenotrophomonas species, and Acinetobacter baumannii, have been shown to be susceptible to honey in vitro. Honey works in several ways to inhibit bacteria including: interrupting cell division, causing cell walls to break down, and damaging the bacteria’s DNA.

Patients with infected or highly exuding wounds may experience wound malodor. Honey has been shown to have a deodorizing effect in patients with malodorous wounds, which is probably due to the inhibition of bacteria. This trait is most notable within 24 hours of the application of honey to the wounds

Antimicrobial resistance to honey

With the introduction of new antimicrobials into clinical practice, the emergence of resistant strains of bacteria normally follows at some point. But experiments in which bacteria were exposed to low concentrations of manuka honey failed to select for honey-resistant strains. While these findings do not prove that bacterial strains won’t become resistant to honey in the future, they do suggest that the possibility is slight.

Debriding action of honey and osmotic effect

The role of honey in wound debridement ( the removal of dead tissue) has been described in research. Manuka honey was demonstrated to promote improved debridement, compared to a hydrogel.  Manuka honey reduces the PH in the wound, preventing the formation of nonviable tissue.
The osmotic effect (ability to attract and hold water) of honey has been thought to encourage lymphatic flow to devitalized tissue, while reducing bacterial load This promotes debridement by allowing substances to form in the wound that lower the quantity of nonviable tissue .

Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity of honey

Wounds that do not progress through the usual phases of healing persist in a chronic inflammatory state caused by damaging chemicals and reactions in the wound. One way to interrupt this chronic inflammatory cycle is to remove free radicals with antioxidants and honey is known to contain antioxidants that scavenge free radicals. Although the anti-inflammatory effects of antioxidants in honey have been demonstrated in animal models, clinical studies are scarce, but it may be that these effects explain the benefits seen in treating burns with honey.

The future

The use of honey in modern wound care is still met with some skepticism. Since the advent of evidence-based medicine, changing clinical practice depends on providing clinicians with appropriate levels of evidence of clinical efficacy. Although honey has become a first-line intervention in some wound care clinics, larger and better designed studies are needed to cement the role of honey in modern wound care.

I have witnessed the healing effects of honey and propolis on wounds and sores. Honey and/or propolis have replaced triple antibiotic, burn ointment and other wound treatments in our family medicine cabinet, and they can in yours, too! Hopefully, research will continue to be done in this country, so Americans can further benefit from these natural treasures! Meanwhile, jump in and try out the healing resources – powered by bees!

3I will give you hidden treasures,   riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the Lord,  the God of Israel, who summons you by name.
For the sake of Jacob my servant, of Israel my chosen, I summon you by name  and bestow on you a title of honor, though you do not acknowledge me.

I am the Lord, and there is no other;  apart from me there is no God.  I will strengthen you,  though you have not acknowledged me,
so that from the rising of the sun to the place of its setting people may know there is none besides me.    I am the Lord, and there is no other.

Healing from the bees,

It warms our hearts

To share with others

What God has brought.

Clover, Bee, and Revery

Reverie (revery) –(n.) state of dreamy meditation or fanciful musing; a fantastic, visionary, or impractical idea

We love it when we talk to people who have had improved health results by using propolis – our products or any others.  It affirms our amazement at the remedies God has given us in nature.  On the second day of the Lithopolis HoneyFest, we had two-day one customers come visit us again, to tell us how well the propolis product they had bought the day before had worked!  One gentleman said the propolis throat spray had gotten rid of his almost year-long irritated throat, overnight!  Another man named Jim came back Saturday to tell us he had used our Propolis Saline Nose Drops the evening before and for the first time in months, his sinuses were clear.  He came back to buy more!  We are thrilled when customers have the same successes we have had with honeybee propolis.

Last weekend, we had a booth at the Columbus Oktoberfest, where people come to pay $16 for a mug of beer and $8 for a brat!  Amazingly, despite the focus on beer and brats, we were able to turn people on to the wonders of propolis.  One family spent a long time learning about it from Laurie and Peter, but weren’t ready to buy.  IMG_1880Their preschool-age son with them wasn’t feeling well due to an ear ache.  Laurie offered to put prpolis oil in his ear and told them to go enjoy the festival for a while and see what happened.  An hour or so later, they were back, with a pain-free, happy child and bought their own supply of propolis products!  Another vendor purchased our rejuvenating skin balm (containing propolis) , used it on her sore, tired feet after day one of the festival and shared it with her business partner.  The next day, her business partner came by to get her own jar of rejuvenating cream, saying it really soothed their tired, worn-out feet!  (Now, we had originally designed this product for aging facial skin –  but whatever!  If it works, it works!)  One of the event organizers bought some Propolis Nose Drops, tried it and came bPropolisTtinctureack for more the next day.

Our friend, Donny burned his tongue on piping hot food last week, and suffered with a blistered tongue for several days, before he remembered propolis!  He treated his still-sore tongue with propolis tincture, put up with the burn for a few seconds and then was pain free.  He treated the blister for 2 more days, was pain-free, and it cleared up.

We also listen to our customers and users and make changes to our products to improve them.  Our men customers of our beard and ‘stache wax have told us that it has hardened too much, so we will be reformulating our recipe to soften it up, and will replace their too-hard wax with a new, softer formula.  We also have had questions about why we are not putting  propolis in our skin balm and soap.  After thinking about it, and realizing that propolis is what we really are promoting, we have decided to rework our recipes and add it to our skin balms and soaps.  In this way, almost all of our products will carry the health benefits of propolis

We love these stories and suggestions, so keep them coming.  And we love that we get to harvest and share these natural health products with others.

1 Timothy 6

17 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.

18 Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.

19 In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.

Propolis for Yeast Infections and Thrush

Psalms from the Hive

by Jeannie Saum

The mantra at our house

Whenever you’re sick

Is go take some propolis

It’ll fix you up quick!

Clover, Bee, and Revery

Reverie (revery) –(n.) state of dreamy meditation or fanciful musing; a fantastic, visionary, or impractical idea

Propolis is an organic composite product made by bees from resin  taken from conifer, pine and poplar trees.  Research is showing it can  treat both oral and vaginal Candida infections.  Killing excess fungus, soothing itchiness and avoiding the side effects of prescription yeast medication are among the benefits of using propolis for yeast infections   Another benefit of using propolis is that this natural substance promotes improved health overall.    The  phenolic acids and flavonoids in propolis help strengthen the body’s immune system and protect the body against bacteria, inflammation and cell oxidation.  For supportive research see the National Institutes of Health website – http://www.nih.gov/

Yeast infections can thrive when the body is low on probiotics. The yeast loses potency in the sustained presence of pinocembrin and acacetin, two flavonoids abundant in bee propolis.   Studies show pinocembrin act as a fungicide and bactericide. It also has the power to sooth swelling and anesthetize the body so that itching from the yeast infection is minimal.  Acacetin has also been shown to reduce inflammation caused by Candida.  The phytochemicals in propolis typically can clear up a yeast infection  in roughly one week. This is nearly equivalent to the duration of prescription drug treatments, which often take one to two weeks to prove effective.

Many users of propolis for Candida prefer the natural treatment to prescription drugs. Drugs typically used to treat yeast infections contain fluconazole, miconazole, clotrimazole or tioconazole. These ingredients have been linked to side effects ranging from burning sensations to bad odors and increased itchiness. Propolis for Candida often has no negative side effects, but may trigger allergic reaction in people allergic to bees or certain types of pollen.

To treat yeast infection,  use an extract form of propolis topically rather than orally.   Ingestion of propolis can often work, but studies mainly support targeted topical application.   Apply the propolis extract or salve  to the area infected by Candida, three to six times a day over a period of about a week.

Taken from a report on   http://www.bastyrcenter.org/content/view/979/

A propolis extract cleared thrush, an oral yeast infection caused by Candida albicans, as effectively as the standard antifungal medication, according to Phytotherapy Research (2005;19:652–4).  When a yeast infection occurs in the mouth, a condition commonly known as thrush, it is usually caused by the organism Candida albicans.

Thrush is most common in infants who have immature immune defenses; it can also occur in people who have diabetes, those with poorly fitting dentures, and people with a weak immune system due to cancer, Crohn’s disease, AIDS, or other serious illnesses.  Some people experience thrush after taking antibiotics, since these drugs disrupt the normal mouth flora and make it easier for candida organisms to multiply.https://beepothecary.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=798&action=edit Certain medications such as steroids and chemotherapy drugs also weaken the immune system and may increase the risk of developing thrush. In addition, Characterized by white patches on the tongue and insides of the cheeks that can be easily scraped off, the infection can spread to the palate, gums, throat, and eventually the respiratory and digestive tracts.

Eighteen adults with thrush due to poorly fitting dentures participated in the current study. Six were treated with nystatin, and the remaining 12 were treated with an extract of propolis. Both groups were instructed to dry the infected area of the mouth with a swab and apply either the nystatin or the propolis directly to it four times a day. After 15 days, the infection had disappeared in all people in both treatment groups.

Swishing propolis extract in the mouth 3-5 times a day, or adding it to a saline mouth rinse, will clear the oral thrush infection.  It also helps clear up canker sores, by applying directly to the sore several times a day.

Preliminary studies show that propolis might be an effective treatment for thrush and, moreover, it appears to be as effective as the antifungal medicine nystatin. Controlled trials are needed to confirm these findings. It is noteworthy that many reports exist of allergic reactions to propolis. People should apply propolis to a small area of skin before using it in their mouth and discontinue use if a rash appears within 24 hours.

Another study, entitled, “Antifungal activity of propolis on different species of Candida”,  was carried out to test propolis on over 100 different strains of Candida, which causes yeast infections.  Patients who used a propolis tincture showed a decrease in the number of Candida.

This study can be found at the National Institute of Health website: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11766101
