I love raw honey. As you know from my recent post “Raw Honey: History, Health Benefits, and How to Prevent Colony Collapse“, I am completely fascinated by honey and honeybees. Honeybees are such amazing creatures and when it comes to traditional foods, you don’t get much more traditional than raw honey. Honey has been used since the dawn of time and has held important roles in culinary, medicinal, and religious traditions.

Tropical Traditions Raw Honey
I love buying local honey, but as we all know, the types of local honey is limited to the environment that we live in. There are countless varieties of honey throughout the world. Every honey is unique in color, flavor, and texture, depending on what flowers are in the bee’s territory. I have become enthralled with honey and have started collecting different varieties of honey from all over the country. I soon want to branch out and start collecting honeys from different parts of the world.
Each variety of honey has its own special application. Some are great for cooking and baking (I use clover and alfalfa honeys for this), some are great for spreading on toast, or drizzling onto dinner rolls (I love sourwood or orange blossom for this), and some are great for stirring into tea and other hot beverages.
Recently, I got the opportunity to sample the raw honey from Tropical Traditions. As you know, I am a huge fan of Tropical Traditions and love their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil. Read more about what virgin coconut oil is here.
But anyway, back to their honey.
Tropical Traditions’ raw honey comes from remote areas of Canada, where there is absolutely no risk of pollution. It is only harvested during a brief, 6-week period during the summer. Tropical Traditions is the exclusive source for this specific variety of honey here in the U.S.
Tropical Traditions’ raw honey has not been subjected to any high heat processing. The only heat that the honey is exposed to is a little warmth in order to get the honey to flow. This temperature is no higher than what the honey would be exposed to within the beehive. This honey is smooth and creamy. It has the consistency of soft butter and actually spreads onto toast. Because this honey is unprocessed, unheated, and unrefined, it is full of beneficial enzymes, yeasts, vitamins, and minerals, as well as the pollen from the flowers the bees harvested from.
The flavor of the honey is very mild. It has the texture of caramel and it is very pleasant to just take a small spoonful whenever I get a craving for something sweet. It almost reminds me of candy. It is definitely one of the staples in my kitchen now.

Has anyone tried washing their face with it? I’m thinking of using raw honey, coconut oil and baking soda for a face wash….
I have used honey on my face before as part of a mask and it works great! I think it is very soothing for the skin. Your scrub sounds like it would be great as well!
