I have tried Propolis tincture and am thoroughly convinced about its effectiveness. I bought my first bottle from the markets in Victor Harbour; I use Propolis for a new wart on my arm. 7 drop taken internally every day plus applied it to the wart 2 x day and in two weeks the wart dried up and fell off leaving no trace.

My Name is Jane,
I am 50yrs Old and had a tattoo on my foot 5 years ago! The Tattoo is quite large and covers the top of my foot! I had the colour red added to the tattoo; to which 3 weeks after having the tattoo I came out in a reaction to the red ink! It got progressively worse and worse. I asked my Son (who is a tattooist) about it and he said the red ink does affect some people. so I went to the doctors and tried cream after cream. Had biopsies a skin specialist look at it over a 4 year period. All to which nothing worked. I then found the Kangaroo Island Living Honey Propolis tincture in the chemist. I started using it and amazingly enough it calmed the infection down; stopped the itching and made it a whole lot better. I highly recommend this to anyone.
Hello, I left KI last week after staying 5 days. In the shop at the dock in Penneshaw I saw your Propolis tincture and bought a bottle.
I have had Actinic Cheilitis on my lower lip for several years which never seemed to clear up and I was resorting to a cortisone ointment which seemed to be the only thing that helped ....briefly. I have been using your propolis tincture for a week and my lips have never felt better.
Thankyou again for the relief your product has given me. Best regards Denise McLarty
