Propolis is a bee product of resins from the buds of poplar and conifer trees mixed with beeswax and other bee secretions. The resins themselves have germicidal properties, and when combined with the bees’ secretions forms a natural antiseptic and antibiotic sticky substance. Bees use this substance to glue materials of their hives together, and it is this same product that is used in a variety of cosmetics, dental procedures, and more. There have even been studies done that link propolis with fighting cancer.
Often you will find propolis in the form of a tincture, capsules, or chunks for oral use. Our propolis comes in chunks that are unprocessed, raw and 100% pure. These can be chewed, or swallowed whole, but we recommend mixing it in with cereal or granola; a word of caution is that it is known to stain, including your teeth. Enjoy the healing benefits of propolis!
