What is Propolis?
The name is derived from the ancient Greeks, who observed that honeybees will utilize this material to reduce or mostly close off (depending on weather or other conditions) the opening(s) to their hive. Pro (before) polis (the city).
Propolis is a sticky, gummy and resinous material collected by honey bees from buds and the bark of trees and shrubs. The bees use this material to fill cracks, reduce openings to their hive and coat the entire inside to help protect it from disease.
Historically, propolis has been known since the time of the Pharaohs in Egypt. Aristotle mentions propolis in his "Story of the Animals" and considered it to be a useful remedy for wounds, infections and skin ailments. At the end of the 19th century, propolis once again proved itself useful by healing soldiers wounded during the Boer War in South Africa.
Because propolis is sticky at normal temperatures, and hard and brittle when cool, it is difficult to create a useable form. We have accomplished this for you and have several products which utilize this wonderful gift of the honeybee! These include propolis gum, propolis tincture and pure (raw) propolis.
The recognized antibiotic and antibacterial properties of propolis benefit the honey bee and perhaps us as well. Documented uses for propolis have included: violin varnish, anaesthetic and ointments for treating burns, cuts, abcesses and wounds.
