Eucalyptus Honey is a deep golden colour, with a pleasant lingering sweet taste, which comes from the Eucalyptus tree varieties from which the bees gather nectar and pollen. These include Jarrah, Marri, and coastal Blackbutt trees.
This highly sought-after table honey has a deeply warm and complex flavour. Eucalyptus Honey is TA Active, contains a high level of antioxidants and antimicrobial properties that help prevent infection and the spread of bacteria and is perfect for soothing sore throats.
Bella Bee Honey’s active honey is independently tested and verified for activity. The term TA is used to describe the antimicrobial quality, measured by the name “Total Activity” (TA)
Bella Bees Honey is harvested from pristine natural environments of the Southern Region of Western Australia, far from any industry or suburban settings, resulting in honey that is pure, natural, chemical and pollutant-free.
Bella Bees Eucalyptus Honey is unprocessed, cold spun from ripe honeycombs, and coarse filtered to maintain the distinct taste of pure, raw and 100%, natural honey. Unfortunately, much of the commercial honey available today is processed and heat-treated, which effectively reduces the antimicrobial properties and benefits of the honey.
Our honey is only coarse strained to remove any larger chunks of the honeycomb. Our honey is never heat-treated, and for this reason, retain much of its natural goodness, nutritional qualities, vitamins, minerals, trace pollen from the hive, propolis particles, fine comb particles, antimicrobial properties and antioxidants.
We are blessed to have some of the most pristine natural environments and bushlands in the world here in Western Australia, and it is from these native Eucalyptus trees that our bees produce some of the worlds cleanest and most delicious honey.
Bella Bees Honey does not recommend storing Eucalyptus honey in a refrigerator as it significantly accelerates the process of crystallisation and will harden your honey. For the best flavour, honey is best stored at room temperature.
During winter and if you are in an unusually cold area, try storing your honey jar next to a window where sunlight shines through and warms the honey up.
