Propolis is a chemically complex sticky "glue" collected from beehives. It contains resins collected from the buds and leaves of plants, volatile oils, and wax. The exact composition of propolis varies from hive to hive and from season to season, depending on the plants available to the bees for making their honey, propolis, and royal jelly. In cool and damp northerly climates, poplar trees provide most of the resins appearing in propolis. In tropical forests, however, so many trees are sources of resins that the exact content of propolis is very hard to predict. Propolis serves as a "chemical weapon" of the hive. Natural therapists around the world recommend propolis as a food and supplement. After being harvested from the hive, the propolis undergoes a natural process to separate the resin from the beeswax, ensuring maximum potency. Our propolis would not be considered vegan.
