Indigo Lavender Farms is home to over 1 Million Honey Bees. Our bees primarily pollinate the lavender which makes a beautiful sweet honey. We take the honey off the hives right after the lavender has bloomed which provides the unique taste. We do not add anything to our honey leaving it raw and pure.
Pure honey will tend to turn cloudy and even crystalize. Crystallization is completely normal and a natural process which tells you the honey is pure and does not have any additives. Honey will start to bind together and form crystals when the fructose and glucose combine. These are the natural sugars that make honey sweet.
Keeping the natural form of the honey is important. The pollen remains part of the honey which will contribute to the crystallization process. This is a good thing! It shows that you have real, pure honey and nothing has been added or removed. All the good beneficial things are still in it.
When honey crystallizes it is still considered honey and is perfectly fine to eat. While it may not have the smooth beautiful clear golden look it had when you first purchased it the honey tastes the same. You can eat it crystallized or add it to your hot tea and watch it melt. If you would like to bring it back to clear state, you can warm up some water and place the bottle in the water to melt the crystals slowly. If you heat it too quickly in a microwave or boil it you will lose the natural beneficial properties of honey.
Lavender has a lovely scent. It's often used in lotions, soaps and candles. You can bring the scent of lavender home with you by purchasing products from our lavender farm. We make our own lavender products with the material we grow on our property.
