Our Active Jarrah Honey
Jarrah honey is a unique and precious gem in the world of honey. It is exclusively harvested from southwest Western Australia, home to the environmentally pristine, native Jarrah (Eucalyptus Marginata) bushlands. Its rarity and bi-annual flowering make it a highly sought-after honey.
What sets Jarrah apart from other varieties is its exceptional total activity rating, which has been tested and confirmed by an independent laboratory in Australia. These tests have been conducted using internationally accepted criteria, ensuring that the Jarrah honey you enjoy reaches the highest international standards.
In addition to its outstanding quality, research conducted in Germany has also revealed that Jarrah honey is one of the purest mono-floral honey available, meaning that the bees primarily gather nectar from the Jarrah flowers, resulting in its distinct and delightful flavour profile.
The total activity rating and being a mono-floral source is a testament to its incredible potency and beneficial properties. These include:
Antibacterial Properties: Jarrah honey contains high levels of antimicrobial compounds, including hydrogen peroxide and methylglyoxal (MGO). These compounds help to inhibit the growth of bacteria, including antibiotic-resistant strains such as MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus).
Wound Healing: The presence of MGO stimulates the production of collagen, a protein essential for wound healing, whilst also promoting the formation of new blood vessels, aiding in tissue regeneration and reducing the risk of scarring.
Anti-inflammatory effects: can help reduce swelling, redness, and pain associated with wounds.
Natural and Safe: Free from artificial additives and preservatives! Our honey is not heat-treated or pasteurised, ensuring that all the goodness is maintained.
Does not crystallise: Jarrah is the only honey that doesn't crystallise and maintains its liquid state year-round!
Lower sugar levels – contains a lower percentage of fructose and glucose than other commercial honey.
Whether you savour Jarrah honey for its delightful taste or harness its medicinal benefits, it truly stands out as a remarkable gift from nature. Its scarcity, purity and impressive health properties make it a precious treasure that can enhance your well-being in a truly natural and delicious way.
