It’s better than others you bought online without any impurities
Highly recommend this product, I use it on cuts and grazes, and my gums if they become sore. It's a great addition to the first aid box for a boost every now and then. It certainly helps to relieve a sore throat if used as a gargle with warm water X
I have been using this for several years and it is my go-to remedy for stopping a cold in its tracks. I work in a hospital & during winter when there are plenty of viruses circulating - as soon as I get the first signs of a cold or sore throat I gargle with this tincture - 8 drops in lukewarm water and it works its magic. I can't find propolis as a tincture anywhere else so I hope you will continue to make this.
Never found ecchinacea did anything for me and then I came across this little bottle. It doesn't have any directions (like many of Neal's yards preparations) but if you ask behind the counter for their product book it suggest 10 drops a day in water. It tastes like drinking tea tree but it really works and I take it for a month once or twice a year as a preventative. But good to gargle with if you are poorly already.
I'm soo happy I found propolis tincture! I used to make my own, but now it's harder to buy raw propolis. I'm also surprised that instructions say to gargle as I dleat it. I mix 3 drops with good quality honey (that's daily). When I'm ill, I take up to 8-10 drops. Works wonders!
