Apitherapy is the medical use of honey bee products.   Apitherapy can include the use of honey, pollen, bee bread, propolis, royal jelly, Apilarnil and bee venom.

The exact origins of apitherapy are difficult to pinpoint but can be traced back to ancient Egypt, Greece and China.  Use of honey and other bee products can be traced back thousands of years and healing properties are included in many religious texts including the Veda, Bible and Quran. These are mostly attributed to nutritional benefits of consumption of bee-products and not use of bee venom.
