A little history on Propolis....
Propolis and its purported benefits have been recognised and drawn upon since as early as 5500 BC, when the ancient Egyptians are believed to have used it for its soothing and healing properties
Stemming from the Greek ‘pro’ (before) and ‘polis’ (city) and said to have been named as such by Aristotle Alexander’s philosopher, propolis means ‘defender of the city’ because it protects the hive and its bees from bacteria and infection, whilst also providing soothing and healing qualities.
Later, the Romans furthered the commercial development of beekeeping and knowledge of propolis, with soldiers carrying it to war to heal their wounds or to use as a morale building tonic as they set out to conquer the world. The women used a propolis cream to nurture their face and bodies and help with a range of feminine health problems - they named it ‘the woman’s friend’.
In modern times, the 1990s saw a serious interest in propolis develop, when a lot of publicity started to appear regarding its benefits, with people talking about their experiences of using it to help treat a variety of health problems.
Some GPs even reported how they prescribed it successfully for patients in instances where modern medicines failed to help. Hailed as nature’s antibiotic, propolis offers an array of benefits for many ailments and is a boon to general health – and even better, it has no side-effects at all!
