Propolis is a product of the hive, collected by bees from certain plants. Its name, taken from the ancient Greek, means "entry into a city" and refers to the reduction of the entrance to the hive with propolis to protect the colony. It is indeed a resin that bees, which harvest it for its therapeutic properties, use as mortar (for the clogging of cracks, waterproofing against humidity, etc.), but also as anti-infectious To clean up the hive (protects the interior of the cells before the queen's laying, smooth the walls of the hive, is used to mummify intruding and dead animals like mice, too large to be evacuated). They make it from their secretions and a series of resinous, gumm and balsamic substances. The main species producing propolis are conifers and buds of several leafy species, more particularly poplars. The worker carries this resin on his legs, just like pollen, and bring them to Masones. Propolis consists of resins and balms (50 to 55%), wax (30 to 40%), volatile and essential oils (5 to 10%), pollen (5%) and various materials (5 %) like organic acids, flavonoids, trace elements and vitamins. Our propolis is freely harvested by bees in an untreated hive (certified Quebec apiary organic by Quebec True). Brown, solid and sticky resin which can become viscous around 20 degrees C, then becomes hard and brittle with cold and time.
