Apitherapy Tourism in Slovenia

Some people call it Natural. Others call it Green. We call it Api (from the Latin apis which means bee). ApiRoutes provides an opportunity to experience the mystical world of bees. Not only to learn about the medicinal properties of the different bee products, but to get as close to bees as you want.
As a visitor on an api tour, beekeepers will invite you to enter an oversizedbee house, where you can listen to the relaxing buzz of the bees, which has been proven to have a positive effect on a person’s state of mind. In Slovenia, a country of unique apiculture with a long beekeeping tradition, the beekeepers place beds within bee houses, thereby transforming it into an apitherapeutic chamber. Apitherapy is the use of hive products such as propolis, royal jelly, beeswax, and pollen. In this chamber, you are invited to inhale the healing warm beehive air.
In the bee house, you can enjoy an organic honey massage or thermotherapy whereupon warm wraps of beeswax are laid on your body, allowing beeswax and propolis to dissolve in your skin, which benefits the musculoskeletal system. Sounds divine! All while enjoying the sweet and soothing fragrance of the hives and listening to their buzz. It is believed that pollen allergies for instance can be cured by regularly inhaling a beehive…
