Wild mountain flowers honey is harvested from Laklouk, Lebanon.
The nectar collected by bees, when they’re pollinating wildflowers, almost always comes from a number of different species; The honey is called “poly-floral” for that reason, since it comes from a variety of nectar sources that grow without deliberate cultivation. That means beekeepers and honey producers don’t plant a field full of wildflowers.
The easiest way to describe wildflower honey is that most of the time it will be light and fruity.
Perhaps the best way to describe this honey is that it’s somewhat similar but a bit stronger than other types of honey known for being fruity and light, such as the orange blossom honey.
It’s ideal for use in cooking or in baking since its light taste won’t “drown out” the other ingredients. This honey is an ideal sweetener for tea, delicious when mixed with fruits to make smoothies, and is one of the best honeys for simply drizzling onto your choice of breakfast foods.
As with most other types of honey, there are natural antioxidants and anti-inflammatories in wildflower honey, making it an effective way to naturally boost the body’s immune system, fight infections that cause colds, soothe sore throats, help with digestion and fight the damage done by the free radicals that cause many diseases.
And also as with other types of honey, those health benefits come with an asterisk: they’re only present in raw wildflower honey.
There’s one other health benefit to wildflower honey that other varieties can’t provide: relief for some allergy sufferers.
One of the biggest causes of seasonal allergies is pollen from wildflowers
And studies have found that eating small amounts of local wildflower honey can help limit allergic reactions caused by pollen from flowers native to the area.
