Beekeeper’s Naturals Propolis Throat Spray Review by A Mom & Her Toddler

Beekeeper's Natural Propolis Throat Spray Review




Written by:

This review is in partnership with Beekeeper’s Naturals. I only endorse products I believe in and personally use with my family.

Starting preschool triggers a whirlwind of ‘firsts'—watching your little one learn new skills, make new friends, and grow more independent. However, it also brings the unfortunate reality of dealing with frequent bouts of illness. Caden’s first year of preschool was tough. It was marked by persistent runny noses, sad little coughs, and an ongoing debate between me and my husband over who caught the most germ-y bugs from school.

I prioritize natural products at home whenever possible. When my family falls ill, I turn to natural remedies to boost our immune system and offer support. Most actual cold medications aren't even suitable for young children, so when I discovered Beekeeper's Naturals Propolis Throat Spray during a frantic Target run, I was thrilled. Beekeeper's Naturals has a spray for both adults and kids so I grabbed both, tossed them in my shopping car, and have been committed ever since. This propolis throat spray is a key part of our daily routine, especially during sick season and when we're traveling.

Here's my (and Caden’s!) honest review of Beekeeper's Naturals Propolis Throat Spray and Beekeeper’s Naturals Propolis Throat Spray for Kids.

The power of propolis

Before stumbling upon this spray, I had no clue what propolis was. I knew it had something to do with bees but I didn't know it has over 300 beneficial compounds. Bees make propolis from the sap of plants and trees and use it to patch up their hives, keep out foreign substances, regulate the beehive's temperature, and to protect against predators.

Propolis is packed with bioactive compounds, antioxidants, B vitamins, vitamin C and D, and zinc, all which contribute to it immune-supporting properties. Propolis has anti-bacterial and antiseptic properties, and has been used to treat gastrointestinal disorders, viral infections, and to support oral health.

What is Beekeeper's Naturals Propolis Throat Spray?

Each dose contains 85 milligrams of high-grade bee propolis extract, designed to bolster your immune system. It's gluten-free, soy-free, and keto and paleo certified. I also appreciate that it's free of added sugars, artificial colors, and preservatives, making it a super clean option.

Immunity boosting benefits

  • Contains antioxidants, vitamin C, zinc, iron, B vitamins, and over 300 other beneficial compounds.
  • Naturally infused with flavonoids and polyphenols, it actively battles free radicals and tackles oxidative stress.
  • Provides relief for scratchy throats.

When and how to use it

This throat spray can be used daily, when traveling, or when you feel the onset of sniffles. A single dose consists of four sprays, which can be applied in the mouth once or twice daily.

What's the difference between the kids and regular versions?

There are two main distinctions: the dosage and the ingredients. The children's throat spray contains 77.5 milligrams of bee propolis extract and incorporates buckwheat honey into the formula. The addition of buckwheat honey offers extra throat-soothing benefits and enhances the flavor and sweetness, making it more palatable for kids.

Clean, non-toxic immune support for kids

Beekeeper’s Naturals Products are carefully crafted from simple ingredients and are completely free from artificial colors, preservatives, fillers, alcohol, and GMOs. Products are sourced from small-scale apiaries that are never over-harvested. Also, I value companies that undergo third-party testing and Beekeeper’s Naturals subjects its products to third-party testing to screen for pesticides and heavy metals, guaranteeing quality and safety.

Our honest review

My first impression

I found this propolis throat spray incredibly easy to integrate into my morning routine. It takes just seconds to use, and the size is perfect for storing with the rest of my morning routine items. I’d describe the flavor as slightly bitter, with earthy, cinnamony, and honey undertones. It’s strong, but not bad per say.

My toddler’s experience

Unlike the difficulty I’ve encountered trying to get my toddler to take other medications, Caden thinks this is fun. He loves that Mama gets her spray, then Caden does and even asks for more after we’ve completed our 4 sprays. The added buckwheat honey definitely makes the kids version sweeter than the adults. He thinks this is more of a fun daily activity, rather than taking medicine. I can confirm I need no tricks up my sleeve to incorporate this into my toddler’s routine.

Has it helped us during sick seasons?

I don't have hard proof, but it's clear that Caden has experienced far fewer illnesses this year (and so have I!) which I'm incredibly grateful for. Administering this throat spray has become a little ritual for Caden and makes him feel special and comforted, especially when he's not feeling well. I can feel his excitement when he watches me use it, and this shared experience definitely reinforces its inclusion in our routine.

Other Beekeeper’s Naturals Propolis products for kids

The power of propolis doesn’t just stop at this daily immune support throat spray. Beekeeper’s Naturals has developed several other natural products designed for kids to bring relief when they do get sick.

Beekeeper's Naturals Kids Cough Syrup Review

Kids Daytime Honey Cough Syrup

Packed with antioxidants and vitamins, this daytime cough syrup helps alleviate coughs and ease symptoms. It also includes vitamin C and D, which further support the immune system.

Kids Nighttime Honey Cough Syrup

This nighttime cough syrup features a blend of buckwheat honey, elderberry, and propolis, aimed at soothing scratchy throats and boosting the immune system. It also includes melatonin, chamomile, and L-theanine to promote restful sleep.

Beekeeper's Naturals Propolis Lollipops Review

Kids Throat Soothing Lollipops

Formulated with propolis extract, vitamin D, zinc, and wildflower honey, the Kids Throat Soothing Lollipops soothe scratchy throats. As an added bonus, they have 50% less sugar than other leading lollipop lozenges, thanks to the addition of monk fruit extract.

I'm convinced this $14 natural throat spray boosted my son's immune system.

I love that Beekeeper’s Naturals is helping me build our medicine cabinet with clean, natural options that actually work. We’ll be continuing to use it daily during sick season, and definitely will be bringing it along while traveling. And for all my friends whose babies are starting daycare or little ones are starting preschool… this is A MUST!
