TINCTURE OF PROPOLIS IN HOME CONDITIONS
Beekeeping products have invaluable benefits for humans, and propolis is no exception. This product is known for its high bactericidal, analgesic and disinfectant properties. To get rid of sore throat, stomatitis and other inflammatory processes of the oral cavity, it is enough to hold a piece of natural propolis in your mouth, but usually its tincture is used for treatment. It is very easy to make propolis tincture at home, and the properties of this product make it possible to use it for many ailments.
How to cook
Usually, alcohol tincture is used for treatment; the more concentrated it is, the stronger the effect will be, but it will be optimal to cook the product with 15%. To do this, you need to take 15 g of propolis per 100 g of 70% alcohol. We put the propolis in the refrigerator for hardening, then chop it with a knife or grater. The smaller the pieces are, the more nutrients the alcohol will “take”. We put pieces of propolis in a container, preferably opaque glass, and fill it with alcohol, then put it in a place protected from light. The tincture is prepared for 1-1.5 weeks, during which you need to take out and shake the container daily. At the end of the period, the solution is filtered. Homemade propolis tincture is ready!
Application of propolis tincture
The scope and methods of using propolis tincture are wide. The most famous is the treatment of diseases of the mouth and throat, acute respiratory infections, bronchitis, rhinitis. In this case, the tincture is used as a rinse several times a day (1 tsp per glass of water), and is also added to the solution for inhalation. With angina and tonsillitis, you can gently lubricate the tonsils with a cotton swab dipped in propolis tincture. Drops with a tincture diluted in water will help to get rid of a runny nose, and 20-30 drops of the product added to warm tea or milk will restore immunity after an illness.
It is useful to consume propolis tincture internally and in case of diseases of internal organs, for example, liver or stomach. In these cases, a homemade propolis tincture is added to the water and taken before meals. This product is also effective for outdoor use. They are treated with fresh and non-healing wounds and burns, trophic ulcers and abscesses, and a warm compress with propolis tincture will help relieve attacks of joint pain in gout and atherosclerosis. For the prevention and enhancement of immunity, it is useful to take a spoonful of natural honey with propolis all year round, such as a product of the Berestov company from the Favorites collection.
