Make your own propolis mouthwash
A healthy oral flora and healthy gums are essential for human health. If the oral flora is unbalanced, it can quickly lead to bad breath, inflammation of the gums and, in the worst case, to periodontal disease.
Up to 700 bacteria live in our mouth and perform important functions. Most of the bacteria live on the tongue. However, there are also bacteria that are not so good for us. In a healthy oral cavity these are well kept in check, but if they outnumber them, they can quickly nestle in tooth pockets and cause tooth decay there and wreak more harm. Good oral care is therefore extremely important for the health of the organism.
Propolis can help keep the oral flora in balance and healthy.
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.
What is propolis made of?
Propolis consists of over 250 identified ingredients. Even if you now know the ingredients very well, propolis is a mystery, because only natural propolis has a balance that no industrially manufactured product can have. The busy bees produce this “miracle cure” all by themselves in a natural process. Propolis consists of approx. 50% resin and approx. 25% essential oils, pollen, minerals and trace elements, as well as flavones and acids.
The main ingredients are:
• Wax components
• Vitamins A, B, C, E, H or B7 (better known as biotin, the active ingredient for skin and hair)
• Iron, chromium, copper, zinc, manganese, selenium, magnesium, silicon
• Amino acids

Intolerance to propolis
Approx. 1% of all people have an intolerance to propolis, presumably as an allergic reaction to a certain proportion of bee pollen. Anyone who is allergic to bee stings or bee products should refrain from using propolis - both externally and internally through ingestion or addition to food. How to test if you are allergic to propolis: Apply the product to the inside of an arm. If a reaction occurs in the next few hours, you should not use any propolis products.
Be careful when buying propolis
In general, if you want to achieve the best effect, you should only buy high-quality propolis with the highest possible propolis content. In the case of inferior goods, the effect often leaves a lot to be desired. Do not save in the wrong place under any circumstances - a high-quality product cannot be found in the supermarket for a few euros. In addition, one should make sure that propolis is not contaminated.
We wish you every success and good health!
