Wildflower Honey

Wildflower honey is a type of honeydew honey and pine honey. It is produced by honey bees that collect honeydew (sugary secretions) from a scale insect species, which lives on the sap of certain pine species, linden tress. When the scale insects feed, they excrete waste in the form of honeydew.
The bees work symbiotically with another insect to create these delightful amber honeys. This partner in crime lives within the pine tree and causes the tree to secrete a sweet, sugary sap that they bees collect to make honey.
Wildflower honey is a woody honey with a sharp, spicy edge. Its stimulating pine and linden aroma stands up well to use in teas and sauces. Eat it on toast or over yoghurt.
It is good to treat for cold and bronchitis and anaemia. It is suggested to eat for pregnant women, as well.
