Organic Oak Honey 500g

Oak honey illustrationWondrous tasting organic raw oak forest honey, rich with enzymes


Finally, you can experience the delight of one of natures finest gifts in a raw and organic form. This honey is remarkably different from the processed honey you’ll find on the supermarket shelves. It comes from Northern Spain.

To preserve the unique flavour and health giving properties of his natural, unadulterated honey, Uncle Ramon simply spins it with a centrifuge from the honeycomb and then strains it into containers.

This delicious raw honey therefore contains the enzymes and pollens that are lacking in commercial honey, making it a truly remarkable superfood.

  • Not pasteurised (which degrades the enzymes, minerals and vitamins).
  • Not ultra filtered - which removes the pollen and its benefits.
  • Not a blend of different honeys from different countries (which almost all supermarket honey is, even when it is organic).
  • The bees aren’t given antibiotics.
  • The bees are fed honey not sugar (many beekeepers feed their bees sugar in the winter).

Raw Honey:


This is the honey extracted which may not undergo any heating process or may not be heated beyond 48c. Raw honey is not filtered and you will sometimes sees traces of beeswax, pollen and even bee wings and legs. It is also referred to as unfiltered honey. Some people absolutely love local raw honey as it is believed to contain anti-allergic properties. Raw honey is also considered to be more nutritious, strong flavored and high in minerals.

Raw honey is real honey. It possesses real energy and has true freshness. It contains all the enzymes, vitamins, antioxidants and antibacterial properties.

Raw honey is great for health and it gives all the benefits which strongly filtered or ultra filtered honey is devoid of. If pressure is applied during extraction, it is called pressed raw honey. If a label bears the wording raw, it should have been subjected only to minimum processing and heat.

How to store honey:


The best way to store honey is in the dark (light damages some of the natural compounds in the honey) always with the lid on. Because honey attracts water it will start to ferment if the lid is left off. It’s best not to keep honey in the fridge as this will make it very hard and difficult to get out of the jar.

The Health Promoting Values of Honey


Honey is one of nature's most splendid gifts to mankind. It is widely recognised for its unique nutritional, health promoting and medicinal values. Ayurveda considers honey to be a food supplement that should be taken regularly in small quantities.

Food Value


The sugars in honey are glucose, fructose and sucrose. Glucose is the simplest of the sugars. It is present in many fruits and vegetable juices and forms the chief immediate source of energy for most animals and man. Fructose, which is also known as levulose or grape sugar, crystallises more easily than glucose and builds up tissues. Sucrose is a combination of glucose and fructose. Dextrin is a gummy substance found in small amount in honey that helps to make honey easily digestible. Latest research indicates that the pollen in honey contains all 22 amino acids, 28 minerals, 11 enzymes, 14 fatty acids and 11 carbohydrates. Unfortunately much of honey’s nutritive quality is lost if it is heated. It is wise to assume that honey has been heated unless it is specified otherwise.

Natural Benefits and Curative Properties


Honey is one of the finest sources of heat and energy. Energy is generated mainly by the carbohydrate foods and honey is one of the most easily digested forms of carbohydrate. It enters directly into the bloodstream because of its  dextrin content and this provides almost instantaneous energy. Honey is a boon to those with weak digestion. All organs in the body respond favourably when honey is eaten. Ayurveda considers honey to be an all-purpose medicine for almost types of disease. Ayurveda recognises that in addition to its sweetness honey has an astringent taste that makes it suitable for even those people for whom most other sweet foods are not recommended (i.e. people with a tendency to kapha imbalance). One spoon of fresh honey, mixed with the juice of half a lemon in a glass of lukewarm water and taken first thing in the morning is an effective remedy for constipation and hyperacidity. Fasting on this honey-lemon juice water is highly beneficial in the treatment of obesity without loss of energy and appetite. A mixture of honey and alcohol is believed to promote growth of hair.

Heart Diseases


Honey is easily digested and assimilated; it is the best sweet food, as it does not cause flatulence and can prevent it to a certain extent, promoting the activity of the bowels. It is recommended in cases of arteriosclerosis and weak hearts. The heart is a very hard working organ and it would be unwise to leave weak hearts without food over the long hours of the night. Consequently heart patients are often recommended to take a glass of warm water with honey and lemon juice at bedtime and at any time they awaken during the night. Honey is often found useful in cardiac pain and palpitation of the heart.

Bee Image

Anaemia


Honey is a valuable support for building haemoglobin in the blood, due largely to its iron, copper and manganese content. It is beneficial in the treatment of anaemia as it helps maintain the right balance of haemoglobin and red blood corpuscles.

Pulmonary Diseases


Ayurveda says that honey balances kapha dosha due to its astringent qualities. As such it is very beneficial in the health of the lungs, the seat of kapha dosha. It is said if a jug of honey is held under the nose of an asthma patient and he inhales the air that comes into contact with the honey, he starts breathing easier and deeper. The effects last for about an hour or so. This effect is due to the 'higher' alcohols and ethereal oils that honey contains and the vapours given off by them are soothing and beneficial to the asthma patients. They usually bring relief whether inhaled or eaten with milk or water. Some authorities recommend one year-old honey for respiratory diseases.

Skin Diseases


Honey applied externally, is considered useful in the treatment of wounds and sores. Its antibacterial and antifungal qualities are well known. Honey soothes pain, acts as an antiseptic, hastens healing and is especially helpful for burns and carbuncles.

Irritating Cough


The use of honey is highly beneficial in the treatment of irritating cough. As a demulcent or soothing agent, it produces a soothing effect on the inflamed mucus membrane of the upper respiratory tract and relieves irritating cough and symptoms like difficulty in swallowing. For this reason, it is used in the manufacture of various cough mixtures. Honey gargles are also useful in irritant cough.

Bee Image

Insomnia


The hypnotic effect of honey helps bring sound sleep. It should be taken with water, before going to bed - two teaspoonfuls in a big cupful of warm water. Babies generally fall asleep after taking honey.

Oral Diseases


Honey is valuable in keeping the mouth healthy. Applied daily over the teeth and gums, it cleans and gives sparkle to the teeth. It helps prevents deposit of tarter at the base of the teeth and decay and early falling of the teeth. Being a mild antiseptic it helps prevents the growth of harmful micro-organisms. In cases of ulcers in the oral cavity, honey helps early healing and in preventing further sepsis. In addition gargling with honey water is very useful in gingivitis due to inflammation of the gums.

Eye Diseases


Honey is an excellent remedy for various eye ailments. Applied daily in the eyes, it helps improves the eyesight. It is very useful in the treatment of itching of the eyes, trachoma, conjunctivitis and other similar diseases. Regularly taking honey internally and external applications help prevent glaucoma at its initial stage. Honey is valuable in the prevention of cataract formation: mix together equal quantities of onion juice and honey and apply it to the eyes with a clean glass rod; keep the mixture in a clean glass jar and refrigerate. This has been found to be a very effective remedy for immature cataracts. It resolves the already coagulated protein fibres and helps prevents further coagulation. (N.B. cleanliness is important).

Diseases of Stomach


Honey is useful in maintaining the health of the stomach. It tones up the stomach, helps proper digestion and prevents stomach diseases. It also decreases the over production of hydrochloric acid thereby preventing symptoms like nausea, vomiting and heartburn. When putrefied faecal matter and undigested foods are present in the alimentary canal, honey acts as a laxative and helps clears the digestive canal of the waste matter.

Bee Image

Old Age


Honey is especially useful in providing energy and heat to the body in old age. It dries up the phlegm and clears the system of mucus to which a person generally falls victim to in old age. One or two teaspoonful of honey in a cupful of boiled water that has been cooled to lukewarm is a refreshing and strengthening drink.

If you are planning to use any honey as part of therapy please consult a Maharishi AyurVeda / medical professional beforehand.

Quick Overview

Maharishi AyurVeda500g Jar of wondrous tasting organic raw Oak Forest Honey, rich with enzymes


Produced by Miel Antonio Simon - a founding member of Apreco Association of Organic Producers of Madrid - Ecological production - Artisan beekeepers since 1897.

Commercial honey is heated during processing, which destroys many of its nutrients. Ayurveda says that eating heated honey create a toxin (Ama) that is hard to remove from the body. This premium quality Oak honey is unheated. This preserves its unique flavour as well as the enzymes that are lacking in commercial honey. The bees aren't given antibiotics and instead of being fed sugar during the winter they are fed honey, their natural food. Oak honey has been used in natural healthcare for centuries.

Oak Flavour - "This is a rich and fruity tasting tree honey also known as honeydew honey. Oak honey has a richness and sweetness along with a slightly earthy flavour. Tree honey tends to be dark and is less likely to set due to a low glucose content. Favoured by adults for its exquisite mature taste."
