Björn’s Propolis is meant for those who eat honey to stay healthy and combat colds or allergies. Propolis is known for its remarkable abilities to assist in the fight against viruses, bacteria, microbes, and fungus. It’s also a powerful anti-histamine making it the ideal honey to eat for anyone suffering from seasonal allergies. Local honey also contains local pollens that when eaten in small amounts can help prepare the body for allergy season.
Propolis honey was created by our beekeeper Pontus’ father Torbjörn in Sweden and it quickly became a hit. When Pontus moved to Colorado, he couldn’t resist whipping up his own batch. By blending Colorado honey with high-quality propolis extract we boost this honey’s health benefits. Propolis, an age-old remedy made by the bees from tree and plant resins, is known to bolster the immune system and contains antifungal and antibacterial properties.
Propolis Honey is often eaten as an immune booster, a teaspoon a day. It can be used in culinary applications but it should not be heated as this can degrade the benefits of propolis. Pontus, the beekeeper, recommends eating a spoonful if you feel a cold coming on as it coats the back of the throat and can soothe coughs. Alcohol-free.
Björn’s Colorado Honey offers local Colorado honey and skincare, bee-pollen plus European-made bee-based skincare featuring beeswax, honey, and propolis. We are small-batch, local, honey producers based in Boulder. Pontus, our beekeeper, grew up in Sweden and learned the practice from his grandfather Björn; the company namesake.Learn More
