I wanted to make a new attempt with propolis soap fulton 


I thought that I remember how to do 


The formula is 100 gr propolis resin 300 ml water pka 3 g KOH solution, then with alum. 


I forgot to give 300 ml of water, and gave KOH straight to propolis heated in a water bath. Then I put in a hot solution of alum. 


Hu, boo, ouu originated clotted mass as Vaseline, displace water. I decanted water. 


Further warming, but grease is already in a water bath (100 degrees Celsius) a more softened zřemě it got much higher melting point than propolis. 


Insoluble in water. The turpentine-insoluble, alcohol soluble. 


After dilution with alcohol on wood very impressive per hour dry and not sticky. 



You do not know what I made​​? Fulon propolis soap that is not for sure.

Propolis can be used as an ingredient in varnish and was mentioned at least as early as 1788 in a compilation various authors, and in particular, of Bonanni's works, by Agricola.  It was discussed in "The 'Secrets' of Stradivari," by Simone F. Sacconi in the 1970s.
