Raw Organic Wild Lavender Honey is a light and pleasing herb flower honey, it has floral notes and a creaminess like vanilla - but doesn't have quite as strong a flavour as honey from cultivated lavender.
This honey comes from bees feeding on the wild lavender bushes in Spain. It is different from the tree sap honey which is often dark in appearance and strong in taste, this honey tends to be very mild, light and softer in taste.
Colour? This particular honey is a light shade of orange, going a creamy light brown colour when set.
The wild lavender plant is a herbaceous perennial shrub known as Cantueso in Spanish. You find it growing everywhere on mountain sides and the uncultivated common land that is so widespread in Spain. The oil from lavender is widely used as an essential oil in aromatherapy, because it is said to aid relaxation and sleep.
Common Uses: Wild lavender honey is good for protecting and soothing abrasions and burns (although obviously see your doctor if it is a bad abrasion or burn). It is also especially good poured over cheese! And because it is so mild children love it on its own and appreciate the subtle taste.
Antonio's Raw Organic Eucalyptus Honey is a really beautiful tasting honey; it has a wonderfully fruity creaminess along with a very mild eucalyptus/menthol aftertaste. Suitable for all ages as it is not overbearing in any way. This is a relatively light-tasting tree honey. It shares characteristics with other herbal honeys, such as thyme or sage.
Colour: This particular honey is a deep shade of orange amber when runny and when set it turns to a creamy tan.
Eucalyptus honey facts: Eucalyptus honey is a variety with a unique composition. It contains traces of eucalyptol which gives it its fresh revitalizing taste. This essential oil is often used in aromatherapy as a decongestant and antiseptic.
What about the tree that the honey comes from? The Eucalyptus tree is an evergreen, also known as Eucalipto in Spanish. It is one of the fastest growing trees in the world. Eucalyptus originates in Australia but has been introduced to Europe.
How do people use Eucalyptus honey? Eucalyptus honey is often used in skin care. It has a fresh clean aroma and its soothing composition helps aid skin recovery from blemishes, acne and spots.
