Naturally Pitcairn Island – Honey & Propolis Soap

Naturally Pitcairn Island – Honey & Propolis SoapPitcairn Island is home to one of the most disease-free bee populations anywhere in the world.  The rich, tropically flavoured honey produced is of an exceptionally high quality.Naturally Pitcairn Island – Honey & Propolis Soap

Both the Honey and the Honey Bee Propolis we use in our Natural Honey and Propolis soap is collected from our local apiaries and spun locally by hand. In its raw state Propolis really does look like black gold and its texture is firm but pliable.  By the time it has been hand ground and blended it takes on a dark honey brown tone which is further enhanced when blended with Pitcairn's pure Honey. This process helps release its great healing properties. Given that both Honey and Bee Propolis are known for their antiseptic and antibacterial properties, this perfect combination had enabled us to produce a 100% naturally scented pure Pitcairn Honey & Propolis soap.

Naturally Pitcairn Island – Honey & Propolis SoapHoney Bee Propolis, often called "bee glue" is a resinous, gummy substance that bees secrete and combine with wax to construct, maintain and protect their hives. It is a naturally produced, incredibly strong amalgam collected by the honey bees from tree saps. On Pitcairn, these include, Lata, Roseapple, Frangipani, Mango, citrus trees, Tapau tree and many others. Honey Bee Propolis contains many minerals, including magnesium, calcium, phosphorus and potassium, as well as beta carotene, bioflavonoids, vitamins B1 and B2. The qualities said to give Propolis its healing properties are; 55% Resinous compounds and balsam,  30% beeswax, 10% Ethereal and Aromic Oils and 5% Bee Pollen.

Naturally Pitcairn Island – Honey & Propolis SoapTree sap itself has antibiotic properties which work to protect trees from viral and bacterial types of infection – so it isn’t surprising that bees work with sap and natural plant resins in constructing and protecting their hives. The saps, mingled with the bee’s natural secretions, form a remarkably strong and extremely powerful antiviral antibiotic, antifungal agent which both seals and sanitizes the interior of the hives and protects its many inhabitants.

Naturally Pitcairn Island – Honey & Propolis SoapPropolis, like other bee products, has been used by humankind since ancient times. The Egyptians used it for healing. Aristotle recommended it for treating wounds and Roman centurions carried it in their first-aid kits for the same purpose.  It is widely acknowledged that Propolis can kill a wide range of microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses and fungi and is therefore an accepted treatment for wounds. Since the mid-1980s there has been a growing revival in the use of Honey Bee Propolis as more and more people move towards natural complementary medicines and products.
