Limerick.  Michael & Conan both strongly believe in the medicinal properties of honey and bee products. As experienced chemists they aspire to learn and explore the science behind herbal plants, medicinal honey and the therapeutic benefits of bee pollen and propolis.

Honey has a high concentration of natural sugars and over time these sugars want to form crystals, in a process called granulation. This is perfectly natural and indicates a high quality product. The time it takes for honey to crystallise depends on two things; the plant source of the honey & the amount of heating it endures. Ivy honey has the ability to crystallise very rapidly (about 1-2 weeks). At BeeActiv we take the time to allow our honey to set and then we cream it to a fine smooth texture; perfect for spreading or mixing in your favourite food. This gives it a light colouration and maintains its texture.
