No idea how to spend a rainy summer day in our valley? Under the roof of our apiary it would be our pleasure to take you into the wonderful world of bees. Harmony with them offers us a lot more than merely honey. Breathing the air from the beehives has beneficent effects on how we feel and helps treat certain respiratory conditions. Why not enjoy a relaxing massage with honey? Bee products have no added sugar, preservatives or colorants. Since nothing has been added or taken in the production process, they are a part of immense natural treasure and its fruits.

The apiary is designed in simbiotic way between humans and bees. Visitors can see the life of bees as close as possible and at the same time away from them enough to avoid stings. We are certified apitherapeuts at the Slovenian Beekeepers Association, so do not hesitate to ask any question you might have about apitherapy. If we know the answer it is our pleasure to advise you.

Aerosol from a beehive is air, which contains essential oils, flavoniods, honey, pollen, propolis and other elements that benefit your health. Together with the microclimate in the apiary extremely beneficial effect on human physical and mental wellbeing. Intensive inhalation of the aerosol directly from the beehive and listening to the natural sound of bees is effective in the treatment of stress disorders, many respiratory diseases and milder forms of asthma. It calms and relaxes all who are in any way exposed to psycho-physical stress situations.
For this type of massage we use a domestic floral honey which only contains nutrients for a human organism. Purpose of this type of massage is not to release the muscles, but to detoxify the body. The organism absorbs nutrients throuhg the skin and returns toxins.
