Propolis is produced from raw materials made by honey bees. The honey bee produces Propolis by collecting tree or plant resin, then mixing it with bee enzymes and sometimes beewax. The honey bees traditionally use Propolis to maintain the health of their hive, to protect the hive from spread of infection, and sometimes they will use Propolis to fill smaller gaps in the hive.
