Very interesting Dave, I had no idea this was something you could buy at the local health food store. Next time I go in to buy clove oil I will look for it.
Yes you can make a killing for instance on propols spray at £5.50 uk over the £16.00 uk charged by some.
Heres a great tip to remember, as its the only koi treatment that will cure your sore throat if you had one so go on spray your throat with it , both Val and I do .:happy:
It has a strange but pleasing taste :happy:
It also comes in Liquid form at roughly the same price as the spray;)

Dave

The bees glue their hives together with it,also fill all openings with it very sticky. We really have to work to get the hives apart.

I could scrape off bunches of it.
