Honey B Healthy Recipe 2

Recipe 2

This Honey bee healthy recipe is great in the fall as a means to ward off digestive issues with bees who must hold their waste all winter. Most say it helps with the gastro-intestinal distress of the bees and wards off Nosema. I make no claims about this personally but i do use it for my bees as a precaution.


5 cups water

2 1/2 pounds of white granulated sugar

1/8 teaspoon lecithin granules (used as an emulsifier)

15 drops spearmint oil

15 drops lemongrass oil


Add the oils and lecithin to a blender with 1 cup of water. Blend on high for 5 minutes.

Use the remaining 4 cups of water and sugar to make a sugar syrup.

Now add the emulsified oils from the blender into the syrup.

Feed directly to bees.


Scale the recipe up to make as much as you need.
