This Honey is the natural sweet substance produced by honeybees from the nectar of Chiuri blossoms, which honeybees collect, transform and combine with specific substances of their own, store and leave in the honey comb to ripen and mature.
Chiuri (butter tree) is a large tree, naturally occurring in warm temperate areas throughout the Himalayan tract in Nepal up to 1500m above sea level. It flowers during cold season. During this season, the plant produces so much nectar that it overflows; hence it is very fragrant and full of pollen. Chiuri Honey is harvested at winter from the pristine high altitudes of the Himalayas, giving it a uniquely high antioxidant capacity. Chiuri is multipurpose tree which has significant cultural and livelihood associations with the Chepang community of Nepal.
Pure honey has more than 50 health benefits, including anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties.

At The Beekeeping Shop, we ensure that all the natural benefits are preserved in our honey by not using industrial processes.
