    [FONT=&quot]Dissolve[/FONT] it in alcohol and add it to saves and creams or use a propolis mat and harvest the pellets and sell it as raw propolis but must keep it cold or it will stick together and become one big ball. A friend son is in university and is studying propolis and the rendering process so he is collecting it from all the local beekeepers

    thnx, I have 4 of the mats to replace the inner covers on order, seems most want it raw so they can add it to what ever they are going to eat.

    Old school beekeepers would use window screening in place of mats.

    It's a good additive to furniture polish.
    I chew on a small pea-sized piece (like chewing gum) when I have a sore throat. Works wonders.
