Dietary supplement based on 100% pure, complete and natural propolis and essential oils. Propolis is a resinous mixture that bees collect from the buds and bark of trees, and then process to make it suitable for protecting the hive, using it as an antiseptic substance. Enriched with honey and 100% pure essential oils, this organic Italian propolis is produced by bees naturally, without forced production techniques, and is characterized by a high content of heterogeneous natural substances, including flavonoids (particularly galangin), tannins and caffeic acid, which contribute to the physiological well-being of the throat. Enriched with 100% pure essential oils of tea tree and cajeput, which facilitate the functioning of the upper respiratory tract; thyme, which is useful for the well-being of nose and throat; and chamomile, which promotes the functionality of the mucous membranes of the respiratory system.

Propolis extract: the name propolis derives from the Greek πρόπολις, composed of πρό (pro) in front of, and πόλις (polis) city, i.e. in front of the city; this word, figuratively speaking, takes on the meaning: defender of the city. The term was used by Aristotle and Pliny the Elder in ‘Naturalis Historia’ to refer to the resin processed by bees, who use it to defend their city (the hive) from dangers such as disease and predators. Propolis is one of the oldest used natural substances. As early as ancient Egypt, it was used for mummification (often referred to by the generic name of resin). In Ancient Greece (in the times of Aristotle, Galen of Pergamom and finally the Persian Avicenna), it was used externally as a healing agent for wounds or sores. The use of propolis is widely documented among numerous cultures around the world. The Incas used it to treat febrile illnesses, while in Russia it was a remedy for all problems of the oral cavity, used in cases of caries and inflammation. Propolis was one of the remedies of choice until the 18th Century, when it was used to treat respiratory inflammation, but also sores, insect bites, etc. It then fell into disuse, but has regained its value in the herbalism as a valid adjuvant to promote the functioning of the respiratory tract.
Sage hydrolate: Sage is an aromatic herb whose use has been known since antiquity; indeed, there is evidence of its use in therapeutic practices by the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans. Its properties were numerous, so much so that its name derives from the Latin salvus, which means 'saved.' It was used as an anti-hemorrhagic, for washing and disinfecting ulcers and sores, and in cases of coughs and sore throats. This last function in particular has been handed down in traditional use: it is no coincidence that our grandmothers gargled with sage water, or sage decoctions (or chewed the leaves directly) in cases of mouth inflammation.
Thyme essential oil: The Egyptians used it for embalming, the Romans used it to preserve food, the Greeks saw it as a symbol of courage, so much so that soldiers rubbed it on their chests for strength and vigour. Hippocrates recommended it for treating skin diseases and respiratory conditions. Thyme essential oil, obtained by distillation of the flowering tops, is very useful in combating skin irritations and problems, as it helps to strengthen, purify, and regenerate the epidermis.
Lavender essential oil: this is the cornerstone oil from which all modern aromatherapy has developed. The story goes that the French chemist René Maurice Gattefossè burnt his hand during one of his experiments. Partly by instinct, partly by luck (we could call it serendipity) he put his burnt hand into a container with liquid inside to soothe the pain. The container was filled with lavender essential oil. Incredibly, he found that the healing process had been incredibly rapid and there had been no secondary infections. His insights led to the development of medical aromatherapy with Dr Jean Valnet (1920-1995), who applied Gattefossé's techniques during the Second World War, using aromatherapy to disinfect wounds and environments.
Cajeput essential oil: Kaji-puti means ‘white tree’ in Malay, indicating the white color of the bark of the tree from whose tops this essential oil is obtained. Originally from Vietnam, it only arrived in the West in the 18th Century following the Dutch conquest of the Moluccas. In its native land, cajeput essential oil has always been used in folk medicine for therapeutic purposes for infections, from intestinal to skin, or burned the branches to ward off contagions during epidemics. The oil was traditionally used by rubbing it on the forehead to combat headaches, ear and toothaches. It was also used to treat skin problems such as ulcers, acne, and psoriasis.
Tea tree essential oil: Known since ancient times for its effectiveness and wide range of uses, the tea tree was called 'the pharmacy in a bottle' by the Australian Aborigines as its leaves were used to treat skin infections and wounds. Its name comes from the fact that when Captain James Cook and his men (who landed in Australia in 1770) wanted a refreshing tea, they used the leaves of this tree. The essential oil obtained from the leaves of this plant is very effective and, if applied to the skin, strengthens and regenerates it thanks to the high presence of a molecule called terpinen-4-ol, an alcohol which, due to its chemical characteristics, has strong antimicrobial properties. The WHO itself has approved the topical use of this valuable essential oil.
Chamomile essential oil: This essential oil is rich in bisabolol and chamazulene, a compound that gives it a distinctive deep blue color. These substances have an excellent soothing and anti-reddening effect, making this product invaluable for the well-being of irritated skin and mucous membranes.
