natural active

Our honey’s anti-microbial quality is measured by the term Total Activity (TA), the higher the TA the greater the antimicrobial strength. All of our honeys are 10 + or greater, making them full of antimicrobial properties, and are equivalent or grater than 263 MGO for you Manuka fans out there.

Our 22+ Jarrah honey is so powerful, that is has double the antioxidants of the infamous Manuka honey. The Jarrah honey’s hydrogen peroxide stays active over several days which stops bacteria from growing, making it the most effective honey bugs such as MRSA, and as a natural treatment for burns, wounds and skin infections.


Our honeys are Raw, meaning they come in a creamy texture because they are undamaged by heat. Due to the raw properties, our honeys are great probiotics which support and feed gut bacteria. And since the gut and the mind are so intrinsically linked, we are excited to see how further research can show the benefits of honey on the mind and the body.

Our honeys are rich with bioactive compounds, which are shown to have protective effects on cardiovascular disease in plat-based diets. They are also full anti-flammatory, which could help problems such as diabetes, digestive disorders and arthritis.
