100% Organic Raw Honey
We know it is essential for our health to consume organics, and in the case of the honey it is a matter of crucial importance. Choosing organic honey is an ethical and moral issue. We need to support farmers who ensure the health of the land and bees. What we see increasingly happening is the bees are bringing their own goods back full of pesticides. The people at the FDA and lobbyist for the chemical companies tell us that these compounds are “safe”, that’s because they are only testing indiviual chemical compounds, however they fail to recognize that we don’t consume the amount of chemicals found in just one bee, in fact we end up consuming a toxic and unsafe pesticide cocktail. The implications go beyond just honey, there is a lot more that these hardworking bees are responsible for, so it is our responsibility to ensure their health as well. EAT ORGANIC!
- Good for your skin, hair, sore throats, stomach aches, wounds, and taste buds
- Approximately one half of the human diet is derived directly or indirectly from crops pollinated by bees.
- Honey is composed of sugars like glucose and fructose and minerals like magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium chlorine, sulphur, iron and phosphate.
- It contains vitamins B1, B2, C, B6, B5 and B3 all of which change according to the qualities of the nectar and pollen. Besides the above, copper, iodine, and zinc exist in small quantities.
- Eating honey from your local area helps prevent seasonal allergies. Bees use the pollen from local plants and eventually it ends up in your honey.
- The taste is awesome. Leave those little blue, pink, and yellow packs alone and put a spoonful of honey in your coffee or tea.
So how can we know that honey is Organic and safe? We asked that same question, because as you know, Organic things cost more and we wanted to make sure we were really getting pesticide free honey. And we actually really care about these things. And you! We learned that bees don’t fly more than 7 miles from their hives. So the entire area has to be certified pesticide free. It’s quite a process, and expense, and companies that invest in this truly care about you and the earth.
