Sri Lanka Ayurvedic Bee Honey – Dark

This bee honey is part of a regional collection featuring three Ayurvedic bee honey varieties. Sourced from the vast dry zone areas of Sri Lanka, this honey boasts a unique flavor profile, deep sweetness, and faint bitter notes.

What sets Sri Lankan bee honey apart is its high density of pollen and nectar from medicinal plants that are widespread across the island. These Ayurvedic properties are highly valued by practitioners of traditional medicine and health-conscious consumers worldwide.

This dark bee honey is also naturally low in moisture, making it an excellent source of nutrition and health benefits. Unlike other bee honey varieties, Sri Lankan bee honey does not require heat treatment, which can damage its nutritional value.

For best results, Ayurvedic practitioners recommend consuming one to two teaspoons of Sri Lanka Ayurvedic Bee Honey – Dark mixed with lukewarm water every morning to enjoy maximum health benefits. However, this honey can also be used like any other bee honey.

At Goodfolks, we are committed to promoting regenerative agriculture practices, and our bee honey is now part of a Regenerative Agriculture pilot project conducted by Good Life X. We pride ourselves on offering premium quality, sustainable, and ethically-sourced products to our customers.

Goodfolks Impact

Goodfolks sources high-quality bee honey exclusively from trained, registered farmers using regenerative agriculture and sustainable practices. Our unique sourcing method only utilizes bee boxes in home gardens of forest buffer zones, eliminating harm to wild bee colonies caused by sourcing directly from forests.

Sri Lankan bee honey is integral to Ayurveda, but concerns around quality exist due to early harvesting, pasteurization, and mixing with wasp honey. Goodfolks addresses these concerns with quality checks using a Refractometer at collection points and testing larger batches at accredited facilities like ITI. We aim to set the standard for Sri Lankan bee honey, ensuring our customers receive an unmatched product.

Goodfolks practices Treatment-free beekeeping, which does not involve the use of synthetic or chemical treatments to manage bee colony diseases and pests. Instead, natural methods are used to promote healthy bee colonies. This beekeeping approach is becoming more popular among beekeepers who prioritize the well-being of their colonies and the environment.

Choose Goodfolks for sustainable, high-quality honey that supports local communities and the environment. Our ethical sourcing and production practices make a positive impact, offering the best possible product for our customers.
