BEEKEEPER’S NATURALS - Propolis Throat Spray, $13.99

CEO and Founder of Beekeeper’s Naturals, Carly, started the company after discovering a natural remedy to her tonsillitis, Propolis, during a study abroad trip in Europe. After returning home she pursued her passion of sharing propolis and all of its benefits with North America. Carly is a tireless advocate for the preservation of the waning global bee population and, through Beekeepers, supports the protection of hives across North America. Her mission is to improve the health of bees and humans alike. 

A sticky collection of plant and tree resins, bees use antioxidant-rich propolis to line the walls of the hive to protect against microscopic foreign invaders. It contains 300 beneficial vitamins, minerals, and compounds—making it nature’s ultimate defender. Bee propolis is also a mighty ally in combating free radical damage during periods of stress—like when you’re rushing through a long line at airport security, struggling under a time-crunched deadline, or running your first half marathon. Easy to pack on-the-go and TSA-friendly, our sweet-tasting Propolis Spray is must-have for anyone who trains hard, travels often, or is looking for natural immune support.
