Read on for more details about the origin, taste and health benefits of this set honey.
With a summit at 15354 feet, the dormant Nevado de Toluca volcano in central Mexico is considered the fourth highest peak in Mexico.
In traditional languages, it is known as the mountain of the "nine lakes", after the deep lakes located around its crater.
8000 feet high, the slopes of the volcano are draped with blankets of golden sunflowers:
As morning breaks, bees begin to feed on the nectar from these sunflowers to produce our Raw Organic Volcano Sunflower Honey.
Tasting notes: Warm, of fresh fruit and flowers with a crispy finish of candied spicy citrus fruit peel
Texture: Set with fondant-like crystals
Aroma: Aromatic, of fresh flowers
The sunflower is native to Mexico where Native American tribesmen have been benefiting from its oil, seeds and honey for over 5000 years.
Due to the heliotropic (sun-following) nature of the sunflower plant, sunflower extracts possess an extremely high concentration of pollen and beneficial minerals.
Sunflower extracts contain hydrogen peroxide, a natural antibacterial agent that is formed when the glucose in the honey reacts with the enzymes secreted by bees. Bacteria are unable to survive in the presence of hydrogen peroxide.
The high concentration of pollen in sunflower extracts can help strengthen the body's immune system function to help it fight infections. Flooding the body with high concentrations of sunflower pollen are used to help the body fight the causes of hay fever.
When applied as a face mask on clean skin for 20 minutes before rinsing, sunflower extracts unclog the skin pores, nourish the skin and make the skin softer and brighter.
Due to the fine crystals in crystallised sunflower honey, it can be used to exfoliate dead skin cells from the skin.
This honey can be used like ordinary honey but is best taken as a teaspoon of this honey mixed into a glass of cool or warm (not hot) water and drunk three times a day on an empty stomach.

Another great honey from Latin honey shop.
Great taste, texture and quality, the family love it.
Just received the honey volcano sunflower and the rainforest honey.
Ive opened the rainforest honey and its absolutely amazing! It reminds me of honey we bought years ago from pakistan fresh raw and full of flavour! Will definitely be ordering more thank you!
Love the taste & consistency. New breakfast buddy!
My mum's favourite honey!
I feel very energetic
Tastes really good. Its got that lemony tastes towards the ebd which I like I will look to order this again in the future after I have tried the rest of them. Good quality stuff.
Mash-Allah really Lovely Honey that is really well packaged. Jzk
Came quick and tasted good
I loved this honey. It's a thick, slightly grainy consistency with a delicious taste. Such a world away from Manuka honey. We use it in porridge for breakfast and also put a spoon in Greek yogurt for a healthy snack.
Great texture and lovely taste
Seriously this honey was absolutely gorgeous. Opened it a couple of days ago and I've already eaten about a third of the bottle. Completely has its own unique taste - not tasted honey like this one before.
Simply scrumptious! It has a fine grainy texture that melts in your mouth, slightly subtley sweet.
Raw Organic Volcano Sunflower Honey from Mexico
This was one of first purchases I made from Latin Honey shop and before they finished, I was already making another order. I'll never go back to 'regular' honey again. Shipment and delivery was on time and well presented. Very happy with it. Can't recommend enough. Oh and the taste.....you just have to try it to see what the hype is about!
what the river of honey in Paradise must taste like, when the honey of this world tastes so good. It really is that good! I have a preference for clear honey, so the very slight gritty texture (due to the natural crystallisation of the honey) makes me prefer this honey on hot wholemeal toast.
This honey is so delicious and has a slight orange/citrus taste. This is the 3rd type of honey I've purchased from Latin Honey shop and like the other 2 it has proven to be of high quality and taste. It arrived quickly and packaged well. So pleased will definitely be ordering more when I reach the bottom. My children love it but their favourite is the Rainforest one!
Having tried pretty much the entire range my favourite is definitely the Volcano Sunflower. Slightly gritty but not too sweet as honey can be.
Excellent service, incredibly well packaged so there can be no breakage and delivery was quick, within a couple of days, and on time. Well done to all at the Latin Honey Shop.
I absolutely love these honeys this is a new one for me. I really love the taste it's very sweet and I put it in my home made healthy dessert of banana cashews and cacao powder! The presentation is stunning and I get so excited when these honeys arrive. They make fabulous presents. Another success!
This honey is great with yoghurt, try it you won't regret it.
I have only tried one out of the five I ordered and can say I have never tasted honey like this. it has a very pure and raw taste. Looking forward to trying the rest!
We love this honey and get through the jar pretty quickly. This honey is set and has a grainy texture. We love having it on its own. It is absolutely scrumptious. This is the one we keep well stocked up.
Speedy delivery, well packaged, perfect gifts for Eid!
I have tasted the Sunflower honey and it is really nice.It isn't smooth like the other ones I have bought but the flavour is lovely and the texture is very pleasant.
I purchased the raw Organic Volcano Sunflower recently, the taste is fantastic and the price is very reasonable. I would certainly be purchasing more. Highly recommended A+
I have never eaten raw honey in one go....it was that delicious.
Guess which one is my favourite?
Raw Organic Volcano Sunflower Honey from Mexico
i cant recommend this money enough, it rele is the best honey i have ever had
Another great honey from Latin Honey Shop. It does have a slight candied taste and is sweet, but not to sweet. My daughter also loved it, and asked for more. :-)
It's getting hard to choose my favourite honey from LHS!
Purchased all 4 flavours as I am a honey fan, and they all taste amazing and have very distinct flavour, texture and sweetness.
Really yummy Alhamdulillah
The jars of honey arrived safely in Malaysia. As for the honey, it was lovely.
Simply the best honey ever. You have to try it to believe it!
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!
...Also, hid a jar for myself - found it to be an excellent face mask, and for eating (a spoon a day) - not at the same time of course ;-)
This is one of the best honeys I have tried. The Riviera Gum Honey has a unique taste unlike any other honey I have tasted. It is truly like butter fudge, luscious and indulgent. And with the health benefits that come with it, what's not to like? It can be eaten straight out of the jar or on toast (I wouldn't recommend adding this particular honey to sweeten drinks as it has quite a strong flavour). I know it is more expensive than the average supermarket honey but their really is no comparison as this is pure honey which has not been filtered, heated and processed so it retains the health benefits. I have also ordered the Volcano Sunflower honey but not tasted this one yet- can't wait! Keep up the good work, will be coming back for more!
I have a teaspoon per day, sometimes with milk and most of the time by itself. Not to sweet, which allows one to appreciate the quality of the honey through their taste-buds. The consistency of the honey is very unique too, as it is essentially semi-solid, however malleable enough to spread.
Top quality stuff.
Beautiful and sweet honey which is buttery smooth, not to forget addictive ! i almost run out and its only been 1 week will be buy more shortly
Beautiful honey with such a unique floral, delicious taste. Lets see if this helps with my hayfever!
I've never had better tasting raw honey, the grains melt in the mouth and feel you with warm sweet feeling, reminded me of the honey from my childhood. All honeys in the range ar delicious as I've tasted them all. The whole experience was great. Highly recommend.
Truly one of the best tasting honey I've tasted. Highly recommended
I love the taste of this honey, personally more than the Rivera Gum. It arrived as a smooth, set, yellow toned honey. I love the hints of floral taste. Definitely repurchasing!
Very yummy and grainy, as well as runny honey, has a distinct mild aroma and lush taste!
I wasnt sure whether this honey would be any better than the raw honey I usually buy - but it was totally delicious. I bought the Rivera Gum and the Volcano Sunflower varieties - on balance I prefer the Rivera Gum but both taste delicious. Thank you!
The honey is lovely too. Will definitely order again.
Love the honeycomb design on the jar lids.
My parcel arrived just days after I placed my order and I have to say I am super impressed. The honey is unlike anything I've tried before, sweet and slightly floral. I shall be ordering again and recommending to everyone I know.
Honest, great tasting honey, highly recommended!
Thank you this honey is so tasty and the quality is amazing
I use honey on a daily basis and I'm quiet fussy about which honey I use ,but this blew all other honey out of water .I love it and compared to other organic raw honey this is very cheap too.ive tried Red Gumbo Limbo and volcano sunflower. Will order more soon
Very tasty and I really like it.
Really good taste and texture
Does live up to the description - Warm, of fresh fruit and flowers with a crispy finish of candied spicy citrus fruit peel
A must try!!!
I was really looking forward to tasting this honey from Mexico. The honey nice and sweet. Just as described in between set and runny. I am now having a spoon every morning and it certainly feels like a treat.
I loved the flavour of this honey-it's unlike anything I've tried before. The difference in quality between this and the usual honey I buy in the supermarket is huge. This honey has a lovely mellow flowery taste. The only reason I've given 4 instead of 5 stars is just because I prefer a runnier texture to set.
Though it wasn't runny honey as had expected the taste was nevertheless good. Would recommend to others.
Delicious and not over sweet.
The honey itself is finger licking good as promised, considering I am not a honey person. Appears will be placing another order soon for some of the friends . Would definitely recommend it
You are what you eat. In our busy lives, we sometimes have to rush out without a good breakfast. I have started to have this pure organic honey first thing in the morning and I feel that it gives me a real buzz. Thank you for providing an excellent organic service in a world of artificial honeys.
