Read on for more details about the origin, taste and health benefits of this liquid 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: Runny (crystallises at cold temperatures with fondant-like crystals)
Aroma: Aromatic, of fresh flowers
Skin health - uplifting mood - boosts immunity - acne - wound antiseptic - protects stomach lining - hay fever
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 honey possesses an extremely high concentration of pollen and beneficial minerals.
Sunflower honey contains 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 honey can help strengthen the body's immune system function to help it fight infections. Flooding the body with high concentrations of natural pollen can also help the body fight the causes of hay fever.
When applied as a face mask on clean skin for 20 minutes before rinsing, it unclogs the skin pores, nourishes the skin and makes the skin softer and brighter.
Due to the fine crystals in crystallised sunflower honey, it is very good at exfoliating dead skin cells from the skin.
Note: unless where specifically mentioned, none of these statements have been clinically proven in scientific trials.
The jars of honey arrived safely in Malaysia. I was initially a bit apprehensive on the safety of the glass jars during travel but I was pleasantly surprised that all 8 jars were safe. 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. The ordering process on the website is very easy and smooth and I was notified at each step of the way when my parcel was being prepared, packaged, delivered and posted. The parcel arrived I was not disappointed - packaging was excellent. 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, very fast delivery, really good packaging in protective air pockets. 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! And also for the prompt and safe delivery.
Unfortunately my honey jar arrived damaged. When I emailed the company they sent me a replacement jar first class the very next day.
A nice quick delivery. I was really impressed with the packaging. The honey is lovely too. Will definitely order again.
Delivered prompty and very well packaged.
Love the honeycomb design on the jar lids.
Great service, no problems, great communication and most importantly delicious honey!
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 .Service was really quick too.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. Packaging was solid. 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. The delivery was very fast
Though it wasn't runny honey as had expected the taste was nevertheless good. Would recommend to others. I love the packaging of the products too.
Delicious and not over sweet.
Every thing from placing the order to delivery was very smooth. 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. The package was really good in air bubbles and quick. Thank you for providing an excellent organic service in a world of artificial honeys.
