How Does Bee Propolis Benefit the Skin?

Have you heard of Bee Propolis? In addition to honey, bees produce a compound called propolis 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 used as a coating to build their hives. This is propolis.

Thousands of years ago, ancient civilizations used propolis for its medicinal properties. Greeks used it to treat abscesses. Assyrians put it on wounds and tumors to fight infection and help the healing process. Egyptians used it to embalm mummies.

Today we use Propolis to aid in boosting our immune systems and fighting infection. Find Bee Propolis in our Overnight Lip Balms
