Comvita Propolis Tinctures are made from the highest quality propolis in an alcohol base.
Comvita Propolis is created by bees from natural resin produced by trees as part of their defence system. Honeybees collect the resin, mix in beeswax and enzymes, and use it to protect the hive.
Bees make propolis by gathering resin or sap from plants and combining it with enzymes. They use it to keep their hives free from infection.
For this reason propolis is known as ‘nature’s best defence’. We mimic the clever bees by collecting propolis from our hives, using it as a key ingredient in many of our immune health products.
