PropolAir® Propolis Diffusers
The benefits of a propolis diffuser (vaporizer):
Propolis has virtues that have been known for centuries. It was already used by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans for its antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and healing properties.
When it is diffused in the air, it keeps all its benefits and can help relieve some forms of asthma and respiratory allergies as well as fighting diseases such as rhinitis, sinusitis, pharyngitis, and angina, while stimulating the body’s natural immune defenses.
It is also an effective way to help sanitize areas like offices, waiting rooms, medical offices, nurseries, bedrooms… and protect the most vulnerable people.
See the studies on the benefits of propolis diffusers further down this page.
How diffusers work:
Patented in Italy, the device allows the contents of the capsule to heat to 62°C / 140°F, temperature at which the wax melts and then to 85°C / 176°F, the optimal temperature at which the volatile fraction of propolis is released into the ambient air. It is diffused with all its antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial properties.
The process used in our diffusers is very innovative as it reproduces the natural conditions of the air in the undergrowth. In nature the volatile fraction of propolis is diffused during the hottest days when the sun warms the buds allowing their release into the air.
In order to work, the diffuser does not require water or oil. It simply needs to be plugged into a power outlet and a propolis capsule Propolair® has to be inserted into the slot located on top of the device.
Each capsule lasts 122 hours or just over 5 consecutive days. When it is time to change the capsule, a LED flashes and a slight beep can be heard.
To change the capsule, the diffuser must be on:
- Remove the protective grid,
- Replace the capsule with a new one,
- Replace the grid,
- Press and hold the power button for about 10 seconds, until you hear rapid beeps,
- Release the power button.
The models of diffusers available:
A1, L1 and Propolina
They diffuse the volatile fraction of propolis into the ambient air.
Models with ionizer:
A2, L2 and Breathe
The ionizer uses negative ions to remove certain harmful particles that are in the air (such as cigarette smoke, dust, viruses, bacteria...). The positive ions will be captured by the negative ions emitted by the ionizer diffuser, they then become heavier and neutral, fall to the ground and are no longer suspended in the air.
Models with ionizer and fan:
A4 Propol Therapy and L3
They allow the volatile fraction of propolis to spread more widely in the rooms in which they are located (from 323 sq. ft / 30 m² to 646 sq. ft / 60 m²).
The A4 model comes with a tube and two masks* (child size and adult size) to take full advantage of propolis when inhaled, especially recommended in case of respiratory problems.
*The tube and masks can be purchased separately and fit on all diffusers except Propolina, Breathe and Propolair Car.
It sanitizes the air and filters out air pollution inside the vehicle, reducing the amount of harmful particles.

Organic Relax: Propolis + essential oils of Lavender, Swiss Pine and Orange, promote the rebalancing of the central nervous system, help sleep and facilitate rest;
Organic Purify: Propolis + essential oils of Tea Tree, Thyme and Lemon, which promote environmental sanitation.
Studies on diffusers:
Here are the results of some studies conducted on PropolAir Propolis Diffusers:
In numerous experiments conducted by theASL of Collegno (Italy) in a classroom showed that the molecules of propolis, thanks to their acknowledged antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties, inhibit bacterial and microbial presence. Diffusers were used for three days non-stop and the results showed an enormous 71.8% reduction of microbes in the air and a sanitization of the classroom!
In separate laboratory studies, the diffusers dramatically reduced air pollution, such as benzene and hydrocarbons, commonly found in urban areas, from 15-70%!
Recommended by physicians (letter by Dr. Piercarlo Salari) and health care providers for patients with asthma, bronchitis and other respiratory conditions. Even noted Apitherapist, Dr Stefan Stangaciu, suggests:
"As a family medical practitioner I know my office is exposed to numerous microbes, viruses and even mold daily. I cannot think of a better 24/7 solution to naturally sanitize my office and improve my breathing than with a propolis vaporizer. The importance of the propolis (excellent for the lungs and immune system) is its complementary functionality with other treatments.
From acupuncture to ayurveda and homeopathy to naturopathy, it is a valuable link to any holistic/integrative protocol."

As stated at a recent medical conference by Dr. Klinghardt:
“To treat children successfully, we have to use anti-mold strategies. To a large degree, I don’t use medical drugs. The propolis vaporizor is a strategy to make the house mold free. An Italian study showed that if you vaporize propolis at 82.3 C, it creates a monoatomic vapour of propolis in the house that kills every single living microbe in the air, making homes safe for the children. It’s a fantastic tool. It’s inexpensive, and has transformed the lives of alot of kids. An Italian asthma study shows over 70% asthma cures in 6 weeks with kids. 70% asthma cures! There’s not much that matches that result. The Propolis vaporizer is a big part of my anti-mold strategy”.
