Arbutus Honey + Royal Jelly | Bee Pollen
Enjoy the benefits of Royal Jelly and Bee Pollen mixed in raw Spanish arbutus honey, otherwise known as strawberry tree honey.
Bee pollen, also known as the ‘life-giving dust’ is one of the other main sources of the worker bees’ diet. It contains a wide variety of long-chain fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and trace elements, as well as enzymes from the bees themselves. Royal Jelly is a milky secretion produced by the nursing bees to feed the queen and young broods of the colony. It is the queen bee’s only food throughout her entire lifetime. A miraculous nutrient in Royal Jelly makes her live up to 3-5 years. Worker bees may only live up to a few weeks in summer and a few months in winter.
This jar of raw arbutus honey contains 5% Royal Jelly and 10% fresh Bee Pollen, mixed by our Spanish beekeeper, Antonio, for maximised benefits.

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).
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.
