Royal Jelly by Spursfan on 9 October 2007 12:07pm
I have a small bottle (phial?) of Royal Jelly, given to us when we bought some honeycomb from a beekeeper in Turkey.

Anyone know what to do with it? [Serious answers only !!]

I am presuming I have to mix it with something before putting it on my skin?

If so, what?

Any help will be much appreciated.

This from Wikipedia Anne
People collect and sell royal jelly as a dietary supplement, claiming various health benefits because of components like B-complex vitamins such as pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) and vitamin B6 (pyridoxine); it can also be found in various beauty products

So I'd spread it on my toast if I were you!

Not sure I fancy it, WiA, but thanks anyway. I am 'finicky' about honey at the best of times !

I want to use it as anti-aging cream !!

Hello Anne, Royal Jelly is normally used as a dietary supplement in *minor* quantities (add some to your tea?..), if you are interested, I can look up my papers at work (as I am in the "beauty business"), anyway it is likely to be added to cosmetic products just as an "emotive". Which also means *minor* quantities as it's a strong bio-active and may be allergenic. Will be back with more info soon:)

I TRIED to resist Anne, I really reall did!

Here I am, A Not At All Naughty Chemist. Recommended daily dosage is one teaspoonful (I think it's reasonable). As for using it as a toilet requisit-t-t-t-t-t, well, better not use it as is! Skin creams etc. may contain up to 1% of it only.

Why not try skate with just a hint of prawn? Or crab, tiger and almonds, very unusual?.. Or Semprini? And personally, I use Rancid Polecat Number 2, it keeps my skin nice and scaly... Gosh, when I get to quoting Python, it's a disaster. Someone pull me up please!

I'd like some Semprini, please. :P

Anne, sorry, you may have thought I was kidding along, just in case, apart from Python stuff I was deadly serious (dosage and all). BTW I do take Royal Gelly in tiny capsules made in France. God knows how it works!
