However, propolis does have proven antibiotic and antiseptic properties
Bee propolis, also called bee glue, is a substance made by bees and used to build and fortify their hives. This unique resinous material is made using a mix of beeswax, tree buds and sap.
Propolis has been used as a medicinal ingredient for centuries, treating inflammation, irritation and other topical wounds. Greenlight stocks a range of ethically sourced and sustainably produced bee propolis products, including skincare treatments and dietary supplements.
Golden propolis balm or serum can be used as a natural treatment for scratches, scrapes, blemishes, burns and boils. Liquid propolis supplements have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties.
