Propolis is said to be one of the oldest natural remedies around; in fact, it was first used over 2000 years ago. Propolis was used for treating ulcers and sores. Propolis is said to be created by bees using the resin collated from leaf buds and bark, combined with enzymes, pollen, and wax. Propolis is known to be a great substance featuring anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties.
