Nature's Most Amazing Antibiotic
The beehive is one of nature's most remarkable laboratories, converting plant material into a range of extraordinarily complex foods and medicines that maintain the health and vitality of the bee colony. Propolis is a Greek word meaning literally "before the city." This product of the hive is occasionally used to restrict the entrance of the hive, strengthen the attachment of the wax comb and cocoon any intruders too large for the bees to remove. The propolis, a sticky resinous wax-like product, is created by a treatment including the addition of enzymes from the bees' glandular system. It is collected as the sap from many species of tree, especially the poplar, and is carried to the hive in the bees¹ pollen baskets.
