  1. It's 100% natural from beginning to end.  Unlike cane sugar, stevia, brown rice syrup or many other “natural” sweeteners, honey remains unaltered.  The same product found inside the honeycomb is the same product found in our bottled honey.

  2. Pure honey contains powerful antioxidants that can help fight free radicals that make you get sick.

  3. Its lower glycemic index is gentle on blood sugar, thus benefitting those with diabetes.

  4. Natural, unfiltered honey is shelf-stable and keeps indefinitely if stored properly.

  5. Pure honey is antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-microbial, making it a good treatment for burns and cuts.

  6. Buying natural, unpasteurized honey helps to support a local beekeeper that is ultimately interested in the welfare of the bee population.

Good for Your Health and Your Skin

  1. Honey isn't only good for your inside, but your outside as well.  Pure honey's antioxidants and enzymes help your face and hair when used in masks.  In fact, the mild alpha hydroxy acid in honey is a great exfoliant for the face.  

  2. Of course, when we consider beeswax in the equation, there's even more possibilities.  Beeswax creates a moisture barrier, sealing in moisture.  Our lip balms are amazing because they use the power of beeswax and other natural oils to seal your lips from the drying environment.  Our handmade lotion bar also uses the moisture seal of beeswax to provide the protective barrier for the skin.

  1. Much of what you'll find in grocery stores by big name companies is pasteurized honey.  This honey is heated to kill any yeast, and subsequently, destroys the enzymes found naturally in honey.  Ultrafiltering, which is usually part of this process, leads to lack of pollen in the honey.  

  2. Raw honey, which you will find from many apiaries, still contains the pollen and enzymes that so many customers value because it is only strained, and possibly, warmed to allow for easier bottling.

Why Honey Crystallizes and How to Fix It

  1. Crystallization of honey is a natural and uncontrolled process. Containing more than 70% sugars and less than 20% water, almost all pure unpasteurized honey crystallizes over time.  When crystallization occurs, don't throw it away.  It takes only a little time to restore it to its original state.  

  2. Simply place it in a warm water bath for about 15 minutes, or as soon as the granules have dissolved. Subjecting honey to too much heat would destroy its live enzymes. Store honey at room temperature in air-tight containers. Don't refrigerate it because that would accelerate the process of crystallization.
