What is RAW Jarrah Honey?

There is nothing quite like Jarrah Honey.  It’s a natural healing honey that is highly prized around the world.  Jarrah honey is produced by bees using the nectar from the jarrah tree.  The Jarrah tree is only found in remote locations around Western Australia, and has only one flowering season once every two years.  This means that it is a very rare honey to come by.  All raw honey contains natural occurring enzymes that gives honey its antimicrobial properties.  But Jarrah honey has one of the highest potencies of antimicrobial activity in the world.  This is what makes it one of the most sort after honeys in the world.


Antimicrobial & antifungal

The antimicrobial quality of Jarrah honey is measured by the term “total Activity (TA)” The TA is like a bacteria killing scale. The higher the TA the greater the antimicrobial strength of the honey.   Not all honey has the same level of antimicrobial power as Jarrah honey.  Because of this antifungal super power, Jarrah honey is used to help treat everything from skin infections and wounds to sore throats and coughs.
