Scientific research indicates that it can be effective in treating diarrhoea.
Raw organic eucalyptus honey is also used:
- as a massage rub to soothe stiff muscles and joint pains

This honey makes an amazing tasting spread on toast, I banned a certain chocolate & hazelnut spread from our home and had endless complaints for 18 months, this honey is a great substitute with read depth of taste with a complex layered flavour. I've read reviews about how good it is for your skin, but it tastes so good it seems too precious to use on the skin
The prophet Mohammed peace be upon him said honey is the cure for every ailment accept death.
I use this honey for both medicinal purposes and I also use it in my cooking and on toast. It tastes wonderful. I have given this honey to family members as a gift and they also enjoy it.
I tasted this honey at a friends house and ordered it straight away. Nicest honey I've ever tasted!
Raw Organic Rivera Gum Honey from Uruguay
I put it on my daughter yesterday and most of her excema cleared up. It's has a fantastic taste and also a very useful honey.
It is the most amazing honey i have ever tasted i have even put it in my tea instead of sugar
Incredibly smooth toffee/caramel taste. Loved the way it's not sickly sweet and the sweetness doesn't overpower the taste when mixed in your tea/cereal. Doesn't crystallise like cheap tacky supermarket honey where you can spot sugar has been added. Thanks for introducing me to a new world of honey, can't wait to see what other health benefits it will bring as it's rid me of a cold in 2 days.
Rivera Gum Honey is an amazing honey that to me tastes mostly like honey but also a little bit like toffee!
The honey was lovely and thick and sweet different that the usual honey taste, in a good way
Very sweet caramel taste, excellent purchase and service
Having tasted this honey before, I knew it would be a hit with the family back home. So, I brought it back home to Brunei with me, and I was right. The family loved the taste, they said it tasted like caramel. Brunei's hot weather has made the honey slightly runny (and not set as it would have been if in the UK), so it's easier to consume.
Since being introduced to this honey by a friend a few months ago, I have repeatedly purchased this product and many others (in fact the whole collection!). This award winning honey is like no other honey - it has a thick creamy texture and almost caramel like flavour - and is completely natural and organic! We all know the immense benefits of honey, especially raw honey. My family and I used to have a spoonful of manuka honey every morning, now we've switched to having this. It also tastes lovely on toast, in cereals and hot milk. I would highly recommend it and have been gifting this to many of my friends too.
Definately tastes good. I was so pleased that this is the second jar I bought
I bought this as a gift for my parents and they loved it. It was very well packaged so the jars weren't damaged in transit.
Thank you for an excellent experience shopping with you.
With my dad being an avid honey lover, over the years I have tried a wide range of different types of honey from all over the world.
No word of a lie. This is the best I have tried. Tastes like you're eating fudge. Amazing amazing taste. I finished the 1st jar in just 1.5 weeks and have been through another 2 since. I have just purchased another and am eagerly waiting for it to come, which won't be long as delivery service with LHS is spot on.
If you're wondering whether you should purchase this....Don't overthink it. Just do it.
I am warning you, it is addictive. Very addictive.
This has to be the best honey I have ever tried. Simply delicious!
love this honey, top quality products, really loved this, thank you!
I had been meaning to purchase some Rivera honey for a while after having read a description about it on the Latin honey shop (LHS) website but I never got around to it. I then managed to sample some while staying with family and can honestly say that it lives up to the billing! I am very satisfied with both the products taste and texture and will be reordering soon God willing and I would definitely recommend others to purchase this particular honey. Amazing.
The honey arrived quickly more importantly it tastes amazing
Raw Organic Rivera Gum Honey from Uruguay
Lovely rich caramel taste.
Subtle tasting honey full of natural goodness.
I was eagerly awaiting the arrival of the new honey from the Latin Honey Shop: Pacific Avocado Honey. Intrigued by the idea of bees gathering pollen from avocado trees, I wanted to taste their product.
My first impressions were: This is a beautiful jar. The product packaging has been designed to high standards.
I opened the jar and found a luscious greenish tinged liquid inside. Having tasted raw honey from trees in India, I knew that 'real' honey would have many complex flavours. The taste of the Avocado honey is difficult to describe due to this complexity. Overall, I am happy with the description of the honey's taste and texture and will order again.
This honey is one of the best I have ever come across! And I have tasted all sorts and spent loads on Manuka too. You got to try it to believe it. Can't wait to order more. Thank you Latin Honey Shop!!!
It's tasty, really tasty! I couldn't resist taking a spoonful as soon as it arrived and was hooked straight away! I will take a teaspoonful each morning from now!
The whole purchase was a pleasure, and these guys really know how to pack things! I will definitely try all the others.
The honey is very tasty just like raw and real. Fantastic!!!
I usually get a horrible acidic feeling after taking a spoonful of honey (empty or full stomach).
Very pleased to say the Rivera Gum Honey and Red Gumbo Limbo Honey has not made me feel acidic at all! :)
Red Gumbo tastes like a mild version of Gur, (Bengalis would know what Gur is, stuff we make the brown "Handesh" and if you love gur they will love this).
Rivera Gum tastes abit like fudge.
Both these made an ideal breaky for me, natural Greek Yogurt and half a teaspoons of each honey, delicious.
Best honey I've tasted
I was recommended this Honey to help with my wife's alerygies and hayfever. We have tried other local organic Honey and nothing has worked as good as this.
I have now bought multiple jars for my sister and aunt to help with their hayfever.
This honey actually made me smile. Ut was creamy rich and amazingly tasty. I have never tasted a honey like this. Its my favourite. Im converted
Items of a very high quality. No complaints. Thank you
I don't think I've ever tasted honey that has tasted so good, wonderful flavour and a lovely smooth texture.
I received my order yesterday and the packaging was very neat and secure. Loved the honey and loved the service .thanks
Purchased all 4 flavours as I am a honey fan, and they all taste amazing and have very distinct flavour, texture and sweetness.
Tastes like caramel! My family love eating this. I will never go back to supermarket honey.
Will definitely order again.
If I'm being very pedantic I would say the label on the jar wasn't stuck on neatly enough- but I say this as constructive criticism :)
Lovely product. Tastes wonderful whilst being pure and organic at the same time. Would recommend to others .
I recommend this tasty honey. It tastes a little like fudge.
Unique product, using it every morning on an empty stomach. Can't wait to try the other products too!
I bought a few of these for honey loving friends, and judging by their reaction to the unopened jars alone - these are going to be well loved!
Raw Organic Rivera Gum Honey from Uruguay
Great product - thank you!
On my second jar of Rivera Gum Honey, this stuff is delicious! The health benefits are an added bonus. Cant wait to try the others!
Very tasty and nice
What can I say, the taste is sumptious. For so many of us growing up with processed, mediocre honey, this is a real treat. My children don't generally like the taste of honey but found the taste and texture unlike anything they've had before.
Not only was the honey delicious, the care taken to get it from shop to my home is testament to how superior this product is.
I would definitely recommend this product to my friends and family.
This is my second order, first went down a treat so got a second order for friends and family. Positive reviews all aroundgreat product. My 4 year old loves the taste and tried a face mask and skin already feels healthier.
Great quality honey. I will definetly purchase again in the future.
i have all four honey collection from latin honey.value for money and very tasty honey
The whole family has been bowled over by the exquisite taste of this honey - a rich caramel fudge.
Love the riviera honey definitely tastes like toffee fudge
Paying the premium seemed a bit high - but this isn't normal honey!
Impressed with the credentials and more importantly taste.
I have never been a fan of honey, most likely because the ones I have had from the supermarket seemed a bit artificial.
This gum honey is like no honey I have ever tasted and would highly recommend it.
Best organic honey on the planet
I love it
Tasty. Organic. Unadulterated
The honey itself is delicious. The Two Rivers Honey has the look and feel of fudge and is delicious in porridge. I'll definitely be buying again!
All praise to the Creator of the world's
Who has blessed me for the opportunity to possess such a exquisite and outstanding nectar of the highest order. ...... Qualit to be reckoned with
When I read the description for the Rivera Gum Honey, I did have doubts as to whether the honey would taste that good. Since receiving it I can confirm that the honey is of some of the best quality honey I have ever tasted. Makes me appreciate the amount of effort that has gone into it. Will definitely be ordering again!
I'm in love with these and will be buying some more soon. Thank you :)
Extremely tasty. Have it with toast every morning, don't think I can go back to any other honey after this!
This is a lovely honey with a unique taste as described on the website. It was crystallised when it arrived, but I actually now love it this way and find it more satisfying to curb my sweet tooth! Look forward to trying more of the other honeys and you definitely have a new regular customer here. Thank you
I've tasted many honeys from all over the world but this one is definitely one of the best ,most aromatic tasting honey I've tasted and smelt.
Definitely going for it again, bought it s week ago n my big jar is already half
The bottles are a good size and the honey looks delicious...will try soon and hope to order more. All the best with this business and thanks for giving us the opportunity to try such healthy and beautiful honey from around the world!
Excellent. Quality product in quality packaging. Full marks.
The honey taste delicious, will definitely be recommending to my friends and family
This honey is the bees knees.
Top grade crystalised honey, reccomended
This honey seriously tastes like fudge.rich and creamy and but it has notes of the many nectars the bees must have collected.cant get enough.
So I've tried a few honey's before & I don't mean the one's off of the shelf of a supermarket. These are so tasty & so fresh that you won't want to go back to any other honey. Looking forward to even more honey's coming from the Latin Honey Shop & being a long time customer. FYI, I've bought all four that are currently being stocked
After trying many raw honey from around the world from yemen/pakistan..... Red Gumbo Limbo from mexico is one of my favourites by farrr!!!!
This honey really does taste as great as everyone has been saying. I've had it on toast and also with paratha and the taste is exquisite!!
Impressed with the little touches. Lovely honey. Will definitely order again.
The taste of this honey was very special, it tasted sweet but not sickly-sweet, and the toffee caramel taste really comes out in the aftertaste. It was an instant favorite at the house and we'll likely order many more in the future.
My family and I are really enjoying our honey. Very tasty and great on toast and in tea!
I've tasted many pots of honey and none compare to this. Latin Honey is luxurious and of very high quality. I was very pleasantly surprised by how smooth the texture was. It was a lovely purchase and I will be purchasing more!
