    Propolis is a resinous substance that bees collect from tree buds, or other botanical sources, and use as a sealant for unwanted open spaces in the hive. Propolis is used for small gaps (approximately 1/4"/6.35 mm or less), while larger spaces are usually filled with beeswax. Its color varies from green to reddish brown depending of its botanical source; the most common being dark brown. Propolis is marketed by health food stores as a traditional medicine, and for its claimed beneficial effect on human health. Natural medicine practitioners often utilize propolis for the relief of various conditons, including inflammations, viral diseases, ulcers, superficial burns or scalds. Some such therapies are based on the traditional practices of Traditional Chinese Medicine, ayurveda or homeopathy. Propolis is also believed to promote heart health and reduce the chances of cataracts. Few of these folkloric claims have been clinically evaluated at the level of large-scale, randomized, double-blind studies. Some in-vitro or rat-model studies are available in published biomedical literature. The composition of propolis is variable, depending on season, bee species and geographic location, so caution must be applied in extrapolating results(below). Depending upon its precise composition propolis may show powerful local antibiotic and antifungal properties. [3] Studies indicate that it may be effective in treating skin burns. Propolis also exhibits immunomodulatory effects. Propolis has attracted the attention of the dental community. In-vitro, animal and clinical studies suggest that propolis has a protective effect against caries and gingivitis. Propolis can also be used to treat canker sores [13], and its use in canal debridement for endodontic procedures has been explored in Brazil. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Propolis

    Eucalyptus (From Greek, ευκάλυπτος = "Well covered") is a diverse genus of trees (and a few shrubs), the members of which dominate the tree flora of Australia. There are more than seven hundred species of Eucalyptus, mostly native to Australia, with a very small number found in adjacent parts of New Guinea and Indonesia and one as far north as the Philippine islands. The medicinal Eucalyptus Oil is probably the most powerful antiseptic of its class, especially when it is old, as ozone is formed in it on exposure to the air. It has decided disinfectant action, destroying the lower forms of life. Internally, it has the typical actions of a volatile oil in a marked degree. Eucalyptus Oil is used as a stimulant and antiseptic gargle. Locally applied, it impairs sensibility. It increases cardiac action. Its antiseptic properties confer some antimalarial action, though it cannot take the place of Cinchona. An emulsion made by shaking up equal parts of the oil and powdered gum-arabic with water has been used as a urethral injection, and has also been given internally in drachm doses in pulmonary tuberculosis and other microbic diseases of the lungs and bronchitis. In croup and spasmodic throat troubles, the oil may be freely applied externally. The oil is an ingredient of 'catheder oil,' used for sterilizing and lubricating urethral catheters. In large doses, it acts as an irritant to the kidneys, by which it is largely excreted, and as a marked nervous depressant ultimately arresting respiration by its action on the medullary centre. For some years Eucalyptus-chloroform was employed as one of the remedies in the tropics for hookworm, but it has now been almost universally abandoned as an inefficient anthelmintic, Chenopodium Oil having become the recognized remedy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eucalyptus
