Pure Propolis for Perfume & Incense-Pure Raw Bee Propolis

Propolis makes a beautiful and intensely fragrant addition to perfume and incense formulas. A little goes a long way. This is similar to the beautiful black "Boozy" smelling Propolis that I had a few years ago which many customers have requested.

In recent years, the term Propolis has slowly shifted to mean a crude blend of Beehive scrapings with a very high percentage of beeswax. While Beeswax is beautiful and can make propolis easy to chew, It is not something you want in your incense or perfume blend and needs to be removed so it can be used in medicinal and aromatic formulas.

Propolis is a fragrant resinous material that bees produce to keep the hive septic and germ-free. Created from the resin of different plants by the bees through the seasons, each batch of Propolis varies in its scent, colour and chemical profile depending on the season, the locale and the plant material that is available to them.

This Propolis has a sweet, warm, boozy, musky animalic, resinous amber-like fragrance with hints of Molasses and Black Cherry. Its scent is reminiscent of Poplar Bud resin, often making up a good portion of the Bee's building material for Propolis.

Propolis can be powdered or blended as a tincture with other ingredients in various incense types. A small sprayer/mister can be used for even dispersal. Its robust amber, musk-like scent transforms single-ingredient and compound incense blends with a rich, exotic, sensuous touch.


A propolis tincture in 95% alcohol can be a valuable asset in the perfumer's palette.

This is probably better for use in perfumery. I was curious and am not a perfumer so I was merely trying it on my electric incense burner. Maybe it’d be better in combo with other resins. On its own I’d say it smells, unburned like olive tapenade and then when burned I’m not sure how to describe it...but my wife hated it haha!

I’m still fairly new to using natural incense and perfume materials so it was great getting to experience that animalic type scent that I had previously only read about. Wonderful experience with this material and definitely recommend

This is a very special musky, sweet animal propolis.You can smell the work the bees have put into this and it was a lot stronger than other propolis i have tried.soft clay texture so is perfect of mixing into incense or tincturing. Well recommended as a little goes a long way.

I ordered on May 13 and finally received my order on July 8. At first I thought that my package had been lost and that I would not receive it. I then asked Dan if he could reimburse me and he said yes. I really appreciate this gesture. Thank you Dan and also Faye for your impeccable customer service. As for propolis from Ontario, I really like it, it is very fragrant and we can see that it is of good quality as well as all the products that I bought.Chantal:)
