The Bloodwood Honey comes from the nectar of the Bloodwood Tree or the Tropical Eucalypt and used by indigenous culture to heal wounds. This honey has a rich caramelised toffee flavour with a thick texture.
It produces a nectar that is dark. This Nectar flows during the build up to the Wet Season, from November, and the trees continue to flower until March.
This has now been tested and is a total activity of 15+ making it medicinal grade honey.
Tasting Notes: Every batch is slightly different depending on the season, environment and conditions however the overall theme of this honey is a toffee/coffee flavour drawn from the nectar of bloodwood and mangrove. If you love the taste of toffee this one is for you...Such a delicious and divine texture and taste. It almost has a coffee quality to it.
The story bee-hind this precious honey:
- Bless It Bee honey is honey from the Sacred Land of the Kimberly's just about 40km away from Broome. The Melaleuca plants are from the Yawuru and Karajjari Country, and only very few people are allowed to be on that land.
- You cannot enter the land without permission from the Elders.
- Our bees are never smoked they are treated with love and this comes through in their honey, they are a very harmonious community.
- The queen bees originate from pristine environments and have being bred with the best drones (male bees) this ensures the quality but also ensures a harmonious hive.
- A number of our bees pollenate around a special temple in Broome as well where many prayers are made.
- This beautiful honey is collected by hand and created by hand all the way to the table and it retains 100% of its nutritional value because it is spun straight off the honeycomb and is not heat treated in any way.
- There is an abundance of native trees on Roebuck cattle station for the bees to collect their nectar. The main varietals are salt water paperbark (melaleuca), bloodwood, white gum and mangrove.
- Our Raw Bush Honey is pure and natural honey produced locally in pristine environments.
