What is propolis?

Propolis is a resinous substance collected by honeybees from the buds and bark of trees and shrubs. The resins are produced by trees as part of their immune system, healing wounds and protecting against the damaging effects of radiation.

These resins are taken back to the hive where the bees add salivary enzymes, wax and pollen. This mixture is used to protect the colony from disease and infection due to its high antimicrobial action.

What is a diffuser?

Diffusers are widely used for different reasons.

PROPOLAIR Diffusers warm up the propolis capsule to the optimum temperature that allows these volatile components of propolis to be dispersed into the air, causing a multitude of microscopic bioflavonoids to be released, going into action doing what they do best: eliminating most of the microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, acari, fungi and moulds)

Many asthma suffers & people with respitory problems can improve their breathing by using a humidifier, this helps to manage the symptoms.

PROPOLAIR diffusers a prevention rather than a treatment.

What does an ioniser do?

An ionizer releases ions (charged particles), into the air. These collide with airborne particles such as dust, viruses, bacteria, smoke and mites and thereby give them a charge. Once the polluted particle has a charge, they are then attracted to surfaces, such as walls, curtains and so taking the pollution out of the air you are breathing.
