bee propolisWe talked a little about propolis in the previous post but didn’t really cover the benefits of propolis. As already stated, this thick, dark glue-like substance is used around the beehive for its anti-biotic properties and its ability to create a sterile environment. Humans can use propolis topically on cuts and sores to prevent infection and aid the healing process. Propolis benefits can be realized with mouth sores such as cankers and ulcers, and it is sold widely for such topical uses where the product must also be safe to ingest.

There are quite a few other propolis uses and benefits listed here, mostly related to the anti-septic anti-biotic properties and benefits of bee propolis on skin conditions such as Psoriasis.
