Our Propolis is actually thick and sticky like it's supposed to be. It even waxes under cold water to seal wounds. If your current Propolis just washes off it's time you bought the proper stuff. It's so sticky you might have to pop out the dropper to get it out!! 30ml of Propolis solution for treatment of external wounds on carp. Do not use on the gills or around the eyes. Dry the affected area properly then apply a couple of drops of the Propolis solution. The bottle is on a dropper system, invert the bottle to release the Propolis in a measured fashion on to your finger. No waste or chance of applying it incorrectly.
