Bee-auty Fit For Royalty

Share

Royal jelly, reserved only for the queen bee of the hive (who, incidentally, lives far longer than the other bees) has also been used by human royalty for centuries

Royal jelly, reserved only for the queen bee of the hive (who, incidentally, lives far longer than the other bees) has also been used by human royalty for centuries. Ancient Egyptian queens rubbed pure royal jelly into their skin-a real luxury.

This precious substance can be applied to soften skin, remove wrinkles and heal ezcema and dermititis. Its natural ingredients-the complete spectrum of amino acids, as well as fatty acids, B vitamins, and traces of A, C, E and K-are easily absorbed by the skin, blending with and fortifying the skin's natural hydroxy fatty acids and protecting cells from dehydration, irritation and inflammation.

Leigh Broadhurst, PhD, recommends fresh or dried royal jelly mixed with evening primrose and calendula extract for treating itchy, scaly eczema and dermatitis.

Try this night treatment:

  1. 2 Tbsp (30 ml) fresh royal jelly
  2. 2 tsp (10 ml) liquid herbal extract (calendula, licorice, yarrow or
    propolis)
  3. 2 tsp (10 ml) evening primrose or borage oil (about 10 1,000-milligram
    capsules of oil squeezed out)
  4. 5 drops essential oil (lavender or chamomile) if desired

Mix ingredients into a thick liquid; adjust proportions to get to a desired consistency, but don't add more essential oils. Cover tightly in a small jar and refrigerate. Use as needed.
