Propolis Tincture - 20ml
This tincture is concentrated, pure and organic propolis in a small dropper jar. The tincture is produced using a hydro alcoholic maceration of distilled grape alcohol, water and propolis. This method extracts and preserves most of the nutrients from the soluble parts of the propolis such as resins, balms, essential oils and phenols, while insoluble parts with the least nutrients, like beeswax, are filtered out.
Bees make propolis by gathering resin from pine and other cone-producing evergreen trees. They blend the resin with wax flakes and pollen, and take it back to the hive. There they use the sticky mess to patch holes, seal cracks and build panels in the hive.
But propolis does more than architectural duty. It also acts as an antiseptic barrier protecting the hive from contamination and from external invaders like mice, snakes, and lizards. In fact, the name propolis comes from the Greek meaning "defense of the city." The antimicrobial properties of propolis protect the hive from viruses and bacteria. Researchers found that bees living in hives coated with propolis have lower bacteria in their body and also 'quieter' immune systems.
And propolis doesn't just benefit bees. For thousands of years folk medicine practitioners have used this bee glue to treat abscesses, heal wounds, and fight infection. In fact, propolis was listed as an official drug in the London pharmacopoeias of the 17th century.
Propolis has a wide range of antibacterial properties. Due to UK trading standards restrictions, we cannot make any specific health claims, but there are many websites where you can find more about propolis.
