Hello. Two of my daughters used to get cellulitis frequently after a bee sting or even a mosquito bite. I was always running to the doctors for antibiotics to get rid of it. Now, the anitbiotics DID work, however after one summer with seven (yes, 7! ) anitbiotics, I decided there had to be something better out there! My husband happens to be a bee keeper, and he had heard of propolis (the "glue" the bees make from pollen and tree sap to fix and repair) and what a great natural antibiotic it is. It is an antifungal, antimicrobial, antibiotic, and about 5 other antis. (Forgive me for not overtyping, I haven't even finished my whole cup of morning coffee yet.) Long story short: We've started using propolis (be sure to get capsules or powder with no added stuff like zinc. Just propolis and the stearate used for preserving it's integrity. ) and have not been back for antibiotics once since! We use it to treat as soon as a sign of a cold, illness, or infection is coming on, and it gets it everytime! We've used propolis traps in our hives to naturally gather it, but it is incredibly hard to chew and swallow, because of it's stickiness. Amazing stuff. Simply amazing stuff!
