Many people are familiar with the benefits of raw, local honey. What people often don't know is bees produce another substance called propolis. It is the resin gathered from plants such as poplars, pine and birches. The bees chew this resin and combine it with wax to produce a sticky substance. They use this to repair and build the hive! It's function within the hive is remarkable in and of itself. Herbalists and holistic healers have found it has a wide variety of medicinal uses as well. Propolis can be found on its own as an extract, such as we sell. It is also sometimes included in some honey products (propolis will be listed as an ingredient).

Customer feedback for propolis-
"My daughter had multiple warts on her hands that were spreading. We tried conventional treatments and apple cider vinegar but nothing helped. I read that taking propolis i a study reduced warts by 75% within 3 months. My daughter started taking it internally and all of her warts were completely gone within 2 months. It worked so well that my husband tried it for his warts and it worked for him too." ~Alaina
