The "healing others" part is where it may get a little riskey.  Most of the information on helping arthritis and other conditions is purely anecdotal and does not form a basis for you to declare it as having a "healing property."  I'm not saying that I don't too think that many products of the hive can help in overall health just, don't market it that way unless there is proof, recognised by the USDA (so far, I don't know of any).

You might also want to consider that you would be practicing medicine without a license. I do believe that could cause you big problems in most states.

sting therapy is popular for things like arthritis and ms.  info can be found on the www.  

i would not actually perform the therapy for another.  if they were to have a reaction, it could be your hide that gets torn.  neither would i advertise my bees for this purpose.....however......there is a local bee keeper who will jar up a few bees, no questions asked, and sell them to you for a buck.

if someone were to come up to me and ask for a few bees in a jar, i'd probably go along with that.
