The Australian Apitherapy Association has been formed to raise awareness of and to educate its members and other interested persons regarding the practice of apitherapy.
During the classical antiquity, the Greeks and Egyptians used honey and propolis (they called the black wax) for their medicinal properties. These products have long been part of the Eastern and Middle-Eastern traditional medicines. Today, apitherapy is practiced by doctors and therapists from around the world.
The Association aspires to have apitherapy recognised as a regulated, alternative therapy in Australia.
