How do you get venom from bees?

Posted by Daniel Pluck on

The bee venom used in the products we source is collected with a state of the art bee venom collector from Europe. 
The collector is made up of glass and wires.

On placing the collector in the front of the hive, it is then connected to a power source.

The bees land on the glass before entering where they are gently electrically stimulated. 

This slight irritation causes a response from the bees  - stinging the glassy surface.
Because the glass is hard, the stingers don't get stuck (like with skin).

The bees then go on their merry way delivering the pollen and nectar that they have collected from the sunny vineyards and hills of the beautiful seaside Nelson region.

Honey bee venom has been subject to extensive scientific research and has also been used for hundreds of years in Oriental medicine.

So Why's it Good For You?

By using venom on your skin, it mimics a similar response (though not painful) of gentle stinging.
Just like exercising causes strength and growth, this "mini-attack" causes a counter-measure from your body of producing more collagen, the building blocks of skin, extra healing and firm skin.
