Raw honey is a pure, unpasteurized natural sweetener that has been used for thousands of years for food consumption and medicinal purposes. Our raw honey is both organic and fair trade certified, making this a highly sought after natural ingredient for both food and cosmetic purposes. Organic fair trade raw honey retains the beneficial antioxidants and bacteria that are normally lost when honey is processed with high heat, which is what is commonly found in local grocery stores. The clearer the honey appearance, the more it has been processed, which means it contains less nutrients and important compounds. The phenolic compounds and phytonutrients contained in raw honey are valuable antioxidants that aid in protecting the body and its cells. Raw organic honey is a great natural energy source and is thought to be one of the best carbohydrate choices to consume before rigorous activity. Organic honey is a popular ingredient in cosmetic formulations such as hair products, cleansers, body scrubs, lotions and in luxurious facial masks, leaving the skin moisturized and smooth.
