Arbutus, a highly medicinal honey, also known as strawberry tree honey, has a truly unusual bitter/sweet complex multi layered taste and is not for the unadventurous!

Arbutus honey contains homogentisic acid, a powerful phenolic acid. The antioxidant and antibacterial qualities of this honey are truly exceptional and it is one of the most antioxidant as well as antibacterial honeys in the world. Studies we have seen suggest that this is possibly the most antioxidant rich honey available.

Anecdotal evidence we have heard also suggests this honey does not cause blood sugar to spike and is often used locally by diabetics.(This is not a medical claim- please consult your doctor if you are diabetic). It is also known to be beneficial for lung health.
