Did you know that honey isn’t the only thing that bees make? Bees also produce a compound called propolis from the sap on needle-leaved trees or evergreens. When they combine the sap with their own discharges and beeswax, they create a sticky, greenish-brown product used as a coating to build their hives. This is propolis.
Propolis and its extracts have numerous applications in treating various diseases due to its antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, antimycotic, antifungal, antiulcer, anticancer and immunomodulatory properties.
As Bee Propolis is made from a tree’s immune system and a bee hive’s immune system, it also works to benefit human immune systems.
How to use propolis?
- 7 drop of propolis can be placed underneath the tongue.
- 14 drops of propolis can be mixed with hot water.
- Propolis can be used externally on the skin to heal and recover damaged skin .
