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 ?
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.
