Raw unprocessed 100% Pure Propolis chunks straight from the hive.
Propolis, also known as bee glue, is the brownish substance that bees collect from trees, plants and flowers. Bees use propolis to seal their hives to keep out the cold as well bacteria and disease. Sealing of the hive helps the bees during the cold and winter months. When the temperature rises the propolis will become soft and sticky.
Our bee keepers scrape the propolis off the frames of their hives, clean them by removing wood chips and other particles and freeze them for quality. We then inspect the propolis chunks for any wood or particles before bottling. Please double check before using.
