The use of Propolis for medicinal purposes can be dated back 2400 years. Bees produce this compound from the sap on needle-leaved trees or evergreens. When they combine the sap with their own discharges and beeswax, they create a sticky, greenish-brown product that is used as a coating to ward off disease in their hives. One of the reasons behind propolis’ popularity is that it’s thought to have antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. Propolis has been suggested to have a role in treating certain cancers as well.
Today, propolis is an ingredient found in many beauty and skin care products and the compound is used for:
boosting the immune system
treating skin injuries
helping the mouth heal after dental surgery
