How to take raw propolis chunks
by Sheila K.
Hi and glad I found your forum:
I have recently become interested in honey and propolis and I would like to try the propolis for things such as sore throat, colds, etc. I don't get them a lot but when I do, they are doozies. My throat can get so raw I can barely swallow.
So, I have the raw chunks.
Do I chew them?
Freeze then make a power to perhaps put in tea?
Put a raw chunk in a liquid and squirt directly in the throat? If so, what kind of liquid- water? juice?
Any info appreciated.
Hi Sheila. Great questions. You can chew propolis chunks but the problem some people encounter is that raw propolis, with it being so dark in color, can stain the teeth over time. So I recommend you either swallow the chunks whole like a pill or blend them into a smoothie or shake. I do this almost daily with my morning protein smoothie.
We will soon have a propolis powder to offer which is easier to take. You could also try a propolis tincture or capsules which makes consuming propolis much easier as well with no worries about staining teeth.
