Propolis is a resinous mixture that honey bees produce from saliva, beeswax and the exude of tree buds, sap flows and other botanical sources. It is used as a sealant for unwanted open spaces in the hive. Humans make use of the antimicrobial properties of propolis for a range of minor human health treatments. The purpose of this study is to better understand the market and the potential for profitable production of Australian produced propolis.
