Anyone have any suggestions of a fair price for propolis?  I am selling currently at $40 per pound to a local herbalist for making tincture.  Is this fair?  I was thinking this was low. But.......what do I know.

The only price comparison I know of is a fellow in GA who sells propolis for about $5 an ounce.

Brazilian green propolis, which is marketed primarily to Japanese tincture manufacturers, is not a legitimate comparison because it is derived from a certain plant that is native in South America.
