Medicine from the Bees to You
New! Propolis Tincture! Propolis is processed by the bees from plant resins into a sticky substance to seal their hives, and helps protect the hive from pathogens. Propolis has been used for centuries to strengthen the immune system against bacteria, fungi, and viruses, as well as for skin and wound healing. The ancient Egyptians even used it in the mummification process.
I harvest this from our hives here at The Middle Aged Spread, and tincture it in a lovely local blueberry and lavender infused 80 proof vodka in a 1 ounce glass dropper bottle.
Propolis can cause allergic reactions in those who are allergic to bees and bee products, and may increase bleeding in people with bleeding disorders. Safety in pregnancy and breastfeeding is currently unclear, so it is recommended to consult with your healthcare practitioner with any questions. Recommended dosage is 10 -20 drops by mouth 1 -2 x per day - I usually just put it in my morning orange juice or tea.
