Do not use this product if you are allergic to bees.
What is Propolis: Foraging honey bees make propolis by gathering tree and plant resins, mixing it with wax and enzymes to create a structural glue in the hive. The bee varnishes the inside of a tree hollow or hive with a thin layer of propolis that protects the colony from bacterial, fungal and viral infection as well as small insects and animals. Humans have used propolis dating back to 300 B.C.
