Propolis is produced by bees to prevent the hive from insect infiltration, novice microorganisms and to disinfect the cells where the queen lays in. Bees transform it into a very aromatic and resinous substance. Most of the propolis products use Chinese, South American or Eastern European propolis. This propolis is usually heated and compacted in blocks in order to reduce volume and improve transport. But this process (as with all honey products) damage the essential oils that determine the propolis physiological activity. The Propolis used in Holistica Balsamic Syrup is harvested in Mediterranean countries and prepared according to long and traditional mechanical process that does not involve any heating process. Propolis macerates during three weeks before being incorporated in the whole syrup formula. Filtration of such a resinous substance is particularly slow and difficult but is essential in order to preserve the precious components of the high quality propolis. The high quality propolis extract and Thyme extract associated with the sweetness of the Marshmallow extract and agave ideally contribute to throat winter comfort and protection.
Essential oils are natural plant extracts or buds’ extract from aromatic trees. Essential oils are obtained by water distillation and allow to concentrate the substances whose aim is physiological. Pine, Eucalyptus and Mint essential oils are selected and ideally gauged in. They contribute to soften the throat while allowing a subtle and 100% natural aromatization.
