Propolis is anti-fungal, antibacterial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Use on cuts, burns, insect bites, muscle massage, eczema, acne, hemorrhoids, etc.
What is propolis?
Bees produce propolis from resins and balms coming from buds and bark from trees. In the hive, bees use propolis as a disinfectant, a protection against external aggressions.
Propolis balm (14g, 24g or 40g):
Ingredients: Soft almond oil, red propolis from Quebec, beeswax, water from rose petals, shea butter.
Instructions: Apply locally on wounds of all nature or any other skin problem (cuts, burns, sun burns, bug bites, eczema, herpes, hemorrhoids, acne, muscular massage, etc.)
→ anti-inflammatory (calms burns)
→ anesthetic (calms pain)
→ bactericide (kills harmful bacteria)
→ antiviral (kills viruses)
→ antioxidant (slows down the degradation of organic compounds)
→ healing (accelerates the growth of new cells)
→ antifungal (prevents the growth and proliferation of fungi)
→ antiparasitic (diminishes and kills parasites)
→ immunostimulant (stimulates the immune system)
The bees harvest resin from several tree species (e.g., birch, poplar, pine, fir) to make a red colored propolis. It is particularly healing (e.g.: helps to regenerate burnt tissues or areas affected by eczema, mouth ulcers or stomach, intestinal infections, etc.)
