I have recently purchased a huge chunk of what I think is propolis. It is a very dense, brick like chunk. How can I tell if it has been frozen or not?? I see many directions saying to freeze and then grind down to powder..not sure if I can skip this step. Also can propolis be ingested through teas and coffee?? This seems like the best way to use raw chunks besides making a tincture.
Because of the natural resins (gums) in propolis, you won't be able to blend with tea or coffee. The best way to consume it is to extract a small piece and chew it, that is if you don't want to make a tincture. :) As for being able to tell if its been frozen, you likely can't.
