Propolis tincture is an alcohol solution made of alcohol and propolis and is nothing short of a natural antiseptic miracle. Taking propolis tincture daily in small doses can help bolster the immune system in its fight against bacteria, fungi and viruses, including the flu. In contrast to medicines that affect both beneficial and harmful bacteria, propolis tincture only affects bacteria that are harmful to our health and in general is not impacted by various bacterial mutations. Oros Machaira Propolis Tincture is prepared at our lab using alcohol and propolis taken straight from our bee-keepers’ honeybees.
Propolis is one of the many products honey bees produce. It is used by the bees to seal and sterilize the hive. Bees create propolis by collecting resinous secretions from plant shells and mixing them with wax, pollen and various enzymes. This mixture gives a natural gift to our health.
Propolis is an impressive chemical composition that is beneficial for the human body. Some of its ingredients include resin, essential oils and pollen. It also has aromatic substances, vitamins and nutrients. When used as a tincture (in combination with pure alcohol) it enables us to use it in many cases for both therapeutic and preventive purposes.
Propolis has been identified for its importance in human protection since antiquity. When combined with pure alcohol it offers:
These benefits are due to the flavonoid content that is found on propolis. It is a natural product that enhances protection against threats to our immune system.

Propolis is a natural product that protects our body and boosts our immune system. However, it shouldn’t be used instead of medicines your doctor prescribes. Always follow your doctor’s orders.
