HONEY

What is “raw” honey?

Raw honey comes straight from the hive and is unpasteurized (has not been heated). By leaving the honey in its natural state, the maximum amount of medicinal compounds are preserved. It has many medicinal components such as proteins, vitamins, all nine essential amino acids, minerals, organic acids, flavonoids, and polyphenols. It also serves as a great natural sweetener- with no hidden ingredients!

Beneficial Properties

Raw honey has antioxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties! It can be great for wound healing, boosting your immune system, digestion and gut health, general nutrition, and soothing a sore throat. Our infused honey has the additional benefits of medicinal herbs!

BEE PROPOLIS

What is bee propolis?

Bee propolis is a resin-like material bees make to build their hives. It acts as a glue to seal the hive and disinfects the colony. Propolis contains many beneficial compounds including essential oils, flavonoids, tannins, antibiotics, minerals, vitamins and amino acids. These compounds will vary depending on what region the propolis is from.

Beneficial Properties

Propolis has many benefits including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-histamine, and neuroprotective properties. The list goes on! Check out some of the medicinal uses listed below.

Medicinal Uses

Fighting Disease: Due do the immunomodulatory, anti-fungal, and anti-viral properties, propolis may help to prevent and fight disease. This includes bacterial infections, such as tuberculosis and strep; fungal infections, such as candida; and viruses, such as influenza, coronavirus, and the common cold.

Anti-Histamine: Propolis helps to stabilize mast cells, leading to a reduced histamine response. This can help to reduce the symptoms of common allergies such as sneezing, itchy eyes, and hives. It may also be a beneficial supplement to aid in mast cell disease symptoms.

Skin Health: Propolis has been shown to promote the healing process of cuts, burns, herpes and shingles. The antioxidant and antimicrobial properties may help to reduce acne, redness, and scarring. Add a couple of drops to your daily skin moisturizer to improve skin health.

Oral Health: When swished in the mouth, propolis may help with canker sores, gingivitis, tooth decay and gum disease. It may also help to speed healing following oral surgery.

Anti-Inflammation: Propolis may help treat diseases caused by inflammation in the body such as arthritis, asthma, ulcers, and inflammatory bowel diseases.

  • Use caution if you have honey bee allergies or if you are allergic to conifers, poplars, Peru balsam, or salicylates.

  • Propolis may aggravate asthma in certain individuals. If you have severe asthma, use propolis with caution.

  • Due to the lack of research in pregnant people, it is recommended to avoid ingesting propolis during pregnancy and breast-feeding.

  • It is recommended not to take more than 1,000 mg of propolis per day.

Drug Interactions: Propolis may interact with medications changed by the liver, medications that slow blood clotting- especially Warfarin, and some hormone therapies.
