So, what is propolis?

Propolis is a natural resinous substance produced by honeybees. It is collected from the buds and bark of trees and plants and used to seal cracks and gaps in the hive. Propolis has been used for centuries for its medicinal properties, thanks to its antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. This versatile ingredient is commonly used in health supplements and skincare products for its healing and soothing benefits. Propolis is also known for its unique flavor profile, which is earthy, bitter, and slightly sweet, making it a popular ingredient in natural remedies and traditional medicine.
