What is Propolis: Brief Summary

what is propolis

Propolis means "city protection/defence" in Latin. Let's briefly explain what you should know about propolis before using it.

Bees produce propolis to protect themselves and their offspring from germs, bacteria and viruses. Propolis is derived from the leaves, stems and buds of plants, making it a completely natural product.

Bees collect a resinous substance from various plants, trees, and shrubs. This sticky and often dark brown substance protects the flowers, fruits and leaves from foreign objects. This substance, also known as wood resin, is actually the raw material for propolis.

Bees collect these useful substances that they produce and return to the hive and mix them with beeswax. This is how propolis is made.

Bees protect the inside and outside of the hive with propolis.
Propolis not only protects the leaves and fruits of the trees from foreign bodies, but also your food and offspring. Bees cover their eyes with propolis before placing their offspring and nutrients in the honeycomb eyes. In this way, the bees protect themselves from germs, bacteria and viruses.

Being a stable material, it protects the beehive from punctures or cracks that can occur during the cold winter days.

Content and effect of propolis


The source of the protective effect of propolis is its complex and rather rich content. The color of raw propolis is usually between dark brown and black. Propolis is produced in different regions and can also be transparent and green depending on the type of plant.
