Honey with Propolis

Propolis is a substance that comes from resins collected by the bees in the shoots of some trees. Its components belong to the class of flavonoids . It is because of these substances that propolis has its main properties: bactericide, bacteriostatic, anti-inflammatory, cicatrizant and anaesthetic. Honey with Propolis (honey with 3% propolis) is recommended in cases of breathing problems, mouth ulcers and skin or mucous membrane injuries.


Back in 1898, Jorge de Almeida Lima acquires and explores his first beehives in Quinta do Lameiro, his country estate in Benfica, outskirts of Lisbon. In 1974, intent on starting a beekeeping activity, his great great grandchildren decide to restore the old hives.

Propolis is a substance produced from resins collected by the bees in the young shoots of some trees. It is believed that salivary secretions of bees are involved in the transformation of those resins into propolis.

Composition of propolis:

  • 50% to 55% - resins and balms
  • 25% to 35% - wax
  • 10% - volatile components
  • 5% - pollen
  • 5% - various organic and mineral substances (iron, calcium, aluminum, magnesium, copper, zinc) provitamin A, vitamins B1, B2, C, E, PP, P, hormones, enzyme

Its main constituents belong to the class of flavonoids, to which propolis owes its most important properties.
