Lavender honey is a premium type of raw honey made by bees feeding on the nectar of lavender flowers. Lavender honey has a warm and soothing taste of creamy florals and reminiscent of lavender blossoms. It is flowery, pleasant, well balanced and rounded with medium intensity, and contains exceptionally delicate honey aroma with the beautiful floral fruity scent and evident lavender components.
Lavender honey contains the highest level of tyrosine from all studied varietals of raw honey. This significant property aids the body to fight against several conditions including; impaired alertness caused by lack of sleep, stress, depression, anxiety and chronic fatigue. When lavender honey crystallises, it turns into fine grains of crystals.
Lavender honey is versatile in many recipes. It works well in herbal teas, ice cream, toast and cakes. It also serves well in smoothies for pre and post workouts.
Because our honey is 100% raw it can crystallise over time. This is normal and it does not mean that the honey has gone off.
Simply place the jar of honey in a glass bowl, quarter fill a pan or a pot with boiling water then place the bowl into it. The steam should heat the bowl, which heats the jar without overheating it (you do not want the benefits of the honey to be eliminated by the heat). Keep the water boiling by turning up the heat on the stove. The honey should be in liquid form again in 15 minutes or so (depending on the size).
Caution: Do not feed raw honey to infants and young children under 12 months of age due to the chance of botulism poisoning. This is not a danger for older children or adults. Using large amounts of honey might increase blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes. Avoid honey if you are allergic to pollen. Honey, which is made from pollen, may cause allergic reactions.
Storage: Store in a cool dry place away from sunlight.
