Australian by Nature Leatherwood Honey is, as its name suggests, the honey which bees produce from the nectar of the leatherwood (Eucryphia lucida) plants’ flower. The leatherwood plant is endemic to Tasmania and is found in the wetter forest regions throughout the western portion of the state. Leatherwood is the single most important nectar plant in Tasmania accounting for about 70% of all honey produced.

Pure (unblended) varietal honey (such as leatherwood) is analogous to single malt Scotch whisky, even though flavours may vary from one season to the next and from batch to batch the flavour and character of the unblended product is superior enough to fetch a premium price. Unblended leatherwood honey has a unique taste and smell which is quite different from that of blended honey. This distinctive spicy flavour has made Leatherwood honey a reputation as a fine gourmet product both in Australia and overseas.

Honey is considered to be one of nature’s finest energy–giving foods. It can contain up to 18 of the 20 amino acids. Honey is a highly concentrated source of many essential nutrients, including large amounts of carbohydrates (sugars), some minerals such as calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium, B–complex vitamins and vitamins C, D and E. It is a healthy natural alternative to processed sugars and artificial sweeteners. Honey is composed of two main sugars, levulose and dextrose, which are easily absorbed and used by the body. There are also many other minerals and vitamins in small quantities which give the honey its colour, flavour and physical properties.

Australia is a great producer of honey. This is due to its climate and vegetation, both of which provide two essential ingredients from which nectar is produced – warmth and blossoms. Our honey comes from specially selected areas of Australia’s vast mountain ranges. The dewfall is heavier in these areas, producing a superior class of clear, crisp, flavoursome honey. Australian honeys are uniquely eucalypt and are considered to be some of the highest quality in the world. Eucalypts, in particular, help give the honey its distinctive taste and density.

Honey is believed to have some therapeutic uses. It has been used for centuries to promote energy and healing. It is also considered a natural antiseptic and makes a good salve for burns. It is commonly used to speed up the healing process of wounds.

I am allergic to bee venom, can I take beehive products? - Having allergies to bee venom does not necessary mean that you will react to beehive products. However they must be taken with caution, so please read all warnings, test small amounts on your skin first or consult your healthcare professional. If an allergic reaction does occur, immediately seek medical advice.

Can I take beehive products whilst pregnant? - If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, please consult your healthcare professional before taking any beehive products.

Why can’t infants younger than 12 months of age consume honey? - Although safe from adults and children consume, honey can be fatal for infants under 12 months of age. Infants are susceptible to botulism caused by spores of the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, since their gastrointestinal tract is not yet fully developed. The spores can germinate and grow in the intestinal tract, producing the deadly disease.
