Types of Honey produced by Bees Neez Apiaries

 JARRAH HONEY

JARRAH HONEYJarrah HoneyJarrah (Eucalyptus marginata) trees are a large forest tree usually found extending from Gingin, north of Perth to as far south as Albany, prevalent in the Darling Range.  Jarrah generally flowers every two years, usually from December through to January.  Honey collection is from the Mundaring State Forest and private properties in the Chidlow area.

A dark thick honey with caramel consistency it is not as sweet as other honeys due to the low glucose and high fructose levels.  For this reason Jarrah honey will not candy and it also gives it a lower GI than other honeys.

Much research has been carried out on Jarrah honey and due to high hydrogen peroxide activities it can inhibit Golden Staph bacteria.  HEALING HONEY (For further information on this wonderful honey see section "Media Releases")

"I have been eating Bees Neez Jarrah honey to treat helicobacter pylori, as the anti biotic treatment prescribed made me extremely ill and not altogether successful.  I read about the medicinal quality of Jarrah honey, which to my delight has cleared the problem"   Sonia, Perth West Aust.

The above photos were taken over a period of 3 weeks to treat a burn caused from the exhaust of a motorbike.  The burn was sealed with glad wrap and then bandaged, dressing was changed every second day.  Although in this case the Jarrah honey was applied undiluted to the gladwrap which caused some stinging there is some discussion that by diluting it with water and flushing the wound that this may cause less discomfort.  Either way proof from the pictures that Jarrah honey is successful in treating burns and aids in the healing process.

PURE NATURAL HONEY

PURE NATURAL HONEY….This honey is generally a mixture of different types of honey as all these were flowering in one area at the same time. Sometimes when we relocate the hives to a new area and then remove the honey super it can contain the new nectar which when we bring it back to the extraction plant it blends the two types.

Currently the main varieties under this label are Yorkgum (from Ninghan Station) and Wildflower (from Greenhead)

The result is a light, delicately sweet tasting honey.

 WHITE GUM HONEY
