Propolis is a resinous mixture that honey bees collect from tree buds, sap flows, or other botanical sources. The bees use it as a sealant for unwanted open spaces in the hive. Its color varies depending on its botanical source, the most common being dark brown.
Propolis is a complex natural mixture of compounds which together offer a range of therapeutic benefits. Anti-inflammatory properties were confirmed in studies. Two studies conducted reported that an enhanced immune system response was observed in participants in the studies. Also, studies in Japan and Bulgaria were able to confirm the anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and some anti-viral properties of bee propolis. Propolis is high in bioflavonoids which may help varicose veins when applied.
Our CHF #60 also contains aloe vera. When applied topically, aloe vera provides a cooling, soothing effect to skin and speeds healing, thanks to its anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties. One of the most common uses of aloe vera gel is treatment for sunburns. Its cooling sensation provides relief from the burning. Aloe vera replenishes parched skin with moisture, thus preventing peeling, blistering and scarring. Since aloe vera fights germs and creates an unwelcome environment for bacteria, it works to treat minor scrapes and cuts.
Our CHF #60 Propolis Cream combines the soothing and healing properties of both bee propolis and aloe vera along with other helpful ingredients such as vitamin E, jojoba and lanolin in the highest quality. Application of this cream to minor burns, abrasions, insect bites, eczema, minor skin irritations, rashes, athlete’s foot, psoriasis, etc., soothes, helps protects and heal the skin.
