Due to its many ingredients, propolis has a very broad spectrum of activity and is therefore used in both naturopathy and human medicine. Propolis is said to have antibacterial, fungicidal, cell protecting, antiviral and wound healing properties.
Propolis is a completely natural product, the different forms of action of which have been confirmed in numerous studies.
Bees have always used propolis to protect themselves against pathogens and intruders such as bacteria, germs, fungi and viruses. To protect the beehive, bees produce propolis to keep intruders out. Propolis comes from the Greek and means "in front of the city". And that's exactly where the unwanted intruders stay.
This popularity of propolis is no coincidence. Many of our long-term customers report excellent results from propolis when used against various pathogens, warts, fungi, etc.
Even with colds, which in the worst case can develop into sinus infections, good experiences have been made with propolis.
Often times, sinus infection is a result of the common cold if you don't cure the cold well and this allows bacteria to multiply. Sinusitis is inflammation of the lining of the sinuses. If you have a sinus infection, it is advisable to fight the bacteria on the one hand and to ensure better ventilation of the sinuses on the other. In the case of acute sinusitis, inhalation with propolis can have a supportive effect and have a decongestant and expectorant effect.
Tip for inhalation with propolis:
It is best to inhale with diluted propolis tincture. Add about 80-100 drops of propolis tincture to about one cup of boiling water in a heat-proof bowl. Cover your head and the steaming bowl with a large towel and breathe in and out slowly and steadily for about 10-15 minutes.
In the case of an acute sinus infection, it is advisable to carry out the procedure twice a day.
