This all-natural honey and propolis throat syrup combines a variety of organic ingredients to make this a highly antibacterial and delicious alternative to supermarket throat syrups. With honey as its primary ingredient, this syrup would already be antibacterial, but it is made much stronger thanks to the inclusion of propolis, elderberry juice, plant extracts, and essential oils.
The flavour is potent but smooth, unlike many harsher-tasting syrups. You can certainly taste and smell the propolis and essential oils
The texture is thinner than some other syrups, so we find it best to swallow it slowly to ensure it fully coats the throat. We've used it here in the office when we've struggled with sore throats, colds, catarrh, and congestion. Plus, we love that it's all-natural and uses lots of organic ingredients!
Propolis (bee glue) is a resinous mixture that honey bees produce by mixing their own enzymes and beeswax with sap and resin gathered from tree buds, sap flows, or other sources. Propolis is believed to be antibacterial, prevent diseases and parasites from entering the hive and to inhibit fungal growth.
The composition of propolis varies from hive to hive and season to season. Normally, it is dark brown in colour. "Typical" northern temperate propolis has approximately 150 constituents, primarily resins and vegetable balsams (50%), waxes (30%), essential oils (10%), and pollen (5%). Propolis also contains persistent lipophilic acaricides, a natural pesticide that deters mite infestations. Other flavonoids commonly present include galangin and pinocembrin. This particular propolis is sourced from our beekeeper, David.
Propolis is being researched for the potential development of new drugs focusing on a variety of its properties, including those for possible immunomodulatory, anti-diabetic and anti-ulcer applications.

All-Natural Honey Throat Syrup - could you supply a translation from the French please?
It looks a very good product, bought for my daughter, a professional Jazz singer who travels all over Europe and must look after her throat, my only (minor!) gripe is that the label is all in French! Is it possible to produce a translation with dosage etc as my daughter ( whose French is worse than mine!) tried a 5ml spoonful and said it really was excellent stuff, but quite rightly she would be happier if the instructions were in English! I also ordered the Mount Athos honey recently but somehow she has managed to "borrow" it! She, like me swear by raw honey for health...(.takes her jar of raw honey everywhere)..... but I would like my Mount Athos honey back, as I didn't even get round to actually tasting it before it vanished!!
The Raw Honey Shop
Dear Hilary, Thankyou for taking the time to review the All Natural Honey Throat Syrup. So pleased to read that you are enjoying the items but sorry you have lost the Mount Athos honey to your daughter! that really is a special honey! In terms of the labels, all our honeys and other items arrive hardpacked and labelled by the beekeepers so we do not really like to add anything of our own to this process. You can however, find the instructions for use and the full ingredients list on the website under the item that you have bought. I hope that will help, and once again thankyou so much for your order. Best Wishes The Raw Honey Shop
It was ok thank you
Love your honey
