An almost divine
Propolis is created by bees from the resin that some plants secrete to protect the tender leaf buds and shredded bark. At our latitudes the Bees prefer to harvest mainly from poplar trees (Populus nigra and alba), the protagonists of a wonderful legend of Greek mythology: the poplars are the Eliad sisters (daughters of the Sun), who Zeus decides to turn into trees because he is moved by their grief for the loss of their brother. And yet their tears of love continue to flow out... in the form of resin.
Pro-polis ("in front of the city"):
a universal defender
Bees know how to draw every conceivable benefit from Propolis: they use it as a building material to cover cracks in their Hives, protecting themselves from dust and draughts of cold air; they use it to cover irregular surfaces and make them waterproof... not only that: the disinfectant properties of Propolis are useful for embalming invaders (mice, moths, etc.) that are too big to be transported out after defeating them.
finally, the most intimate and precious use: a thin layer of Propolis is spread by the bees on the bottom of the brood cells, which welcome generations and generations of new bees. This way each one can grow healthy and strong in an germ-free environment.
We insert a fenestrated cavity in the beehive which causes the Bees to want to seal it... with Propolis, of course. Then we put this kind of net in the freezer, to solidify and separate the raw Propolis, which in turn is put to macerate in organic alcohol (65%). Thus, after 20 days in the cold and dark, we obtain a particularly bitter Mother Tincture, with a minimum concentration of 40% Propolis.
a "transparent" brand
The "Mountain product" quality indication is reserved for raw materials coming from the mountains. Protecting mountain products means rewarding the work of thousands of small and medium-sized enterprises that help keep our country's economy alive as well as recognizing the social, environmental and touristic value of these areas. Bringing our Bees to these areas also means maintaining and sustaining their magnificent biodiversity; for this reason, we chose to harvest our "Wildflower" products here alone, where Nature thrives in all its colors.
