I would also think that an ounce of PGA 190 proof would cure some aches and pains and disinfect abrasions even without the dissolved propolis.

And "yes"  enough of it would make you fly

worth a try I suppose

So what is the purpose?

taste?  Super powers?

Trying to find a "Propolis Tea" to treat a throat infection. Its a small lesion caused by an antibiotic resistant staff infection" that has been has been treated unsuccessfully by a dozen different Doctors over the past five years.  Hope it will respond to the "Propolis Tea" or propolis tincture or ingestion of straight propolis and honey.  The individual suffering with this ailment is at her wits end and I suggested treating with propolis.  She loves teas of all kinds. And hoped to find one made with propolis. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I've edited the original post to show the above.

Cool,

let us know if the treatment is successful. 

I have had great success with bee venom relieving back pain so I have an open mind about this kind of stuff.

The way were making it gives Green Tea a minty taste.  But leaves a slight waxy residue on the teeth.  Not a bad concoction at all, at least to me.  Have had many an over the counter medication that were far harder to swallow.

We don't use the Tincture of Propolis.  We boil propolis with water and use the resulting liquid 1 teaspoonful to a cup of Green Tea.

What is the consistency like after you boil it ? Is it like peanut butter, or what ? I wonder too, which way is better for  preserving its beneficial properties ?

We:

Slow boil a 1 1/2 inch ball of propolis in a quart of water until the propolis dissolves.

Allow to cool.

Skim off wax.

Add 1 teaspoon of the liquid to a cup of tea. It is thin as water and gives the tea a minty taste.  But leaves a thin waxy coating it mouth for a few minutes.



She is drinking 3 cups of Green Tea daily sweetened with 1 teaspoon of honey and 1 teaspoon of the propolis liquid.  Trying to fight a resistant staff infection causing a lesion 1/2 way down the esophagus. Been using it for 4 days now.  It seems to be bothering her less, but we are withholding judgment until her next Dr's appointment in two weeks. She has had the lesion for years.  Her Dr's have tried everything, including surgery, but it keeps coming back.
