In traditional languages, it is known as the mountain of the "nine lakes", after the deep lakes located around its crater.

In accordance with EU directive 1924/2006 we are unable to make any health claim about any of our honeys. The information given below is either background information about the plants from which our honey comes, or anecdotal based on customer reviews. It should not be inferred from the plant properties that this honey automatically possesses the same qualities or provides the same benefits as the plant.
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.
