Product Description

Raw Propolis straight from beehives in Ohio.

4 oz. = $25.00
8 oz. = $40.00
1 lb. = $75.00

This is raw propolis that has been scrapped from the frames of Ohio beehives. Be aware this is raw and unprocessed and may contain a small amount of wood chips, etc. from the frames. We have gone through it removing grass, etc. that we see, but double check it when you get it.

How do we get propolis ready for folks?

1) In the Fall after the honey has been extracted and the wooden frames are available to look through - Glenn checks all the frames that have been removed and starts to scrap propolis off the frames. Very tedious and time consuming process as this is all done by hand.

2) He then takes the Propolis that he has scrapped off the hives and places the propolis into 5 gallons buckets which contain water.

3) He continually stirs this for a number of days. As he is doing so stuff will start to float - small pieces of grass, twigs, beeswax etc. Propolis will not float and will sink so that is why Glenn continually stirs the buckets.

4) After he lets the Propolis soak for a number of days he removes the propolis and places the propolis onto strainers to let it start to air dry.

5) While the propolis in on the strainers, Glenn will mix it around a number of times during the day to help in the drying process. Once the propolis is dry, he then has to go through it again looking for anything that is not Propolis (i.e. twigs, grass, beeswax etc.)

6) After Glenn has gone through it and removed anything that he can see that is not propolis, we are then ready to sell it.

So the good news is we have lots of propolis - sometimes we have to put out of stock while Glenn is getting more ready to sell.

Bee Propolis is gathered by bees from the leaf buds or bark of trees. So far 17 chemical substances in propolis have been described, some of which are: cinnamic acid, vanillin and an aromatic unsaturated acid characterized by antibacterial effects on certain gram-positive and gram-negative micro organisms.

For honey bees, propolis is used as a kind of glue. Honey bees gather propolis from trees and other vegetation. They use it to seal cracks and crevices in the hive to make it less drafty when it is cold. Propolis is sticky when it is warm and it is difficult to deal with when it is hard.

The fresh taste of raw propolis
I've never eaten raw propolis before, but got it for it's antimicrobial action. It's got a pleasant taste all its own. Very fresh. I've always wanted something that tasted different from everything else. Well, this is IT!

Very Nice Raw Propolis!!!
I was at a festival here in Michigan and a woman had a booth where she was selling natural remedies. She told me all about eBeeHoney. So glad I found this site! Anyway, she told me all about the raw propolis eBeeHoney sells and how it is so important for antibiotic properties. I have never had propolis before but it has a unique taste and texture. I take a little bit and chew on it and swallow. It was packaged nicely too. Thanks for a great produce! Tony Michigan

Raw Propolis is wonderful
Hi Glenn, Thank you so much for offering this product, many people don't even know what propolis is. I use propolis tincture in syrups and throat sprays, and this batch looks great:) It has a great smell and color, plus it was great that you smashed it all to bits because that it often the hardest part about extracting propolis. Thank you again, and I will definitely recommend your site and products to my friends.

Great if you know what to do with it
Got this because my husband, suffering from mucositis from throat cancer treatment, had been helped by consuming honey. Was told by a hive owner that propolis is even better. But the texture is so wax-like, I can't put it in smoothies (my husband can't yet chew and swallow any solids)because it would gum up the NutriBullet. The quality of the product appears good, but I didn't know that the consistency and lack of dessication possibilities made it unusable. Now I'm getting teased about buying it! But if you know what to do with it, I'm sure you'll be pleased!

Raw Propolis
This product is as good as the reviews say it is. I had a pleasant conversation with the owner. Very nice person and knowledgeable. This product is so much easier to use than the tinctures I have used. If someone wanted to add a little flavor, just eat a bit of honey. Really awesome product! Thank you so much!! :)

Bee Glue Crazy!
This propolis smells and tastes great, and has a wonderful texture in the mouth when chewing. Normally, I take a small piece and stick it to the back of one of my upper teeth (in case it should stain), so I can suck on it and enjoy its health benefits all day. As noted in the project description, you'll have to go through and filter out any leftover debris yourself. But it's all easy to spot and pick out. Aside from chewing, I plan to make balms and toothpaste with my propolis as well. I will now forever come here for all my honey, wax, and propolis needs!

Thank you!"
I'd lost my source of propolis & reviews for yours were excellent so I got some to try: as an owner of an herbal products business 30 years ago I've been in the habit of making my own propolis tincture to treat sore throats. The tincture will be "brewing" for another couple of weeks but I just tasted it and it obviously will be a great batch. Thanks for taking good care of those bees!

Tastes great!
My Dad and Mom have taken raw propolis for years to ward off sickness and infections. I always got a supply from their hives when visiting. At 92 years of age he stopped having hives as he can't take care of them. So I went looking for some raw propolis and found eBeeHoney. I am so glad. This tastes just like Dad's and I feel great and haven't been sick. I also got their sampler of honey and they are delicious as well. Thanks eBeeHoney.

Propolis Fan
This is the real deal. Previously I purchased propolis from a different vendor and it seemed that it was adulterated if not completely fake. The propolis I purchased from Ebeehoney, however, is perfect for my propolis diffuser. It disseminates a lovely aroma and is easy to pack into the diffuser cartridge. I love the fragrance and the way the propolis burns slowly. Now, if only ebeehoney might offer cheaper shipping options for small quantities.

I was skeptical about the quality of the product when I ordered it. However, I was very pleased with the product's quality and the delivery. This is the only place I will go for my future Propolis needs. Nice job eBeeHoney!
