:-) On a more serious note, however, I have heard that royal jelly is good,
so maybe whatever is in it that works is also in bee stings. If it's
propolis, however, I'd be careful - I once took some propolis cough syrup
and my throat swelled up. And some people are badly allergic to bee stings.

capsicum (sp?) oil, are all recommended by many people for chronic ache
conditions. Your mileage may vary. I know others who swear by Tiger Balm
to help with the aches and pains.
