Description

Sri Lanka Ayurvedic Bee Honey – Dark, is one of three Ayurvedic bee honey verities from the regional collection.  This honey is very dark in colour, has a deep sweetness with faint bitter notes at the end. It is drawn from the vast dry zone areas that feature very large trees as well as a multitude of smaller medicinal plants and vines. This bee honey is synonymous with Sri Lankan Ayurveda. Its main pollen sources are Weera, Kumbuk & Palu.

Sri Lankan Bee Honey is Ayurvedic in Nature due to the high density of pollen and nectar from medicinal plants that are widespread across the island. And given the tropical nature and climate, the moisture content is naturally low (minimizing the need to remove moisture through heating which damages the nutrition value of bee honey).

Sri Lankan Ayurvedic Practioners recommend that you use just one/two teaspoons in a glass of lukewarm water and drink every morning to gain the maximum benefits of its medicinal value. However you may use this bee honey like you would use any other bee honey.

Goodfolks bee honey is now part of a pilot project for regenerative agriculture conducted by Good Life X.

Goodfolks Impact

Goodfolks ImpactSri Lanka’s apiculture (bee keeping) industry has not been well organized till now and Goodfolks is focused on changing that. Traditionally bee honey has been harvested from the wild and this has not been good for the environment or the indigenous people that depend on them for sustenance. However Sri Lankan Bee Honey has been of significant importance to the the local branch of Ayurveda known as ‘Hela Vedakama’. Additionally, Sri Lankan Bee Honey has been plagued by issues of quality. These stem from early harvesting, pasteurizing, mixing of wasp honey and providing sugar as a form of nectar. The Goodfolks Sourcing practices eliminate all these concerns to bringing you the highest quality honey at a price that also cares for the well-being of the farmers that depend on bee keeping as an income source. Goodfolks continues to evolve its sourcing, production, research and development to bring you one of the world’s premium and highest quality products – whilst being mindful and considerate about the people and the planet.
