Cold Sores


For cold sores, we can recommend our Propolis drops; smear with it the affected area 2 to 3 times a day. Once the cold sore is sufficiently dried out, there is no need to smear the tincture any further (the cold sore would crack) - then smear it with honey, which will nourish and heal. From the experience of our customers we know that Ointment with propolis or Honey ointment with propolis also have therapeutic effects..

For normal use, any of our lip balms is suitable.

Yes, propolis tincture may be used for cold sores while breastfeeding (its use is also possible during pregnancy). However, we do not recommend propolis to be used internally during pregnancy or breastfeeding.

In shingles, you can use propolis drops 20 drops 3 times a day for three weeks, then discontinue using for at least two weeks and then apply the drops again. Furthermore, we recommend lubricating the area with Ointment with propolis or Shea Butter Balm With Propolis.

„Hello, the tincture is such a small miracle for me – I suffer from cold sores (mostly during common colds) and on the recommendation of a friend I have bought propolis tincture – when I feel a cold sore popping out, I immediately smear the area with the tincture and the cold sore really doesn't come out. The expensive ointments from the pharmacy are completely useless. Many thanks to you and the bees :)“

„The stick smells nice, it's just enough greasy, but it absorbs nicely into the lips, it's great for chapped lips. I often suffer from cold sores in the winter, but when my lips start to itch, I smear them right away and no cold sore develops, and if by chance, yes, heals quickly. I have never come across such a good quality lip balm.“
