Bees start making honey, which is their food, by visiting flowers. They collect a sugary juice called nectar from the blossoms.
When they have a full load, they fly back to the hive and after a laborious process they gradually turn into honey. Then the bees store it in honeycomb cells, which are like tiny jars made of wax. The honey is still a bit wet, so they fan it with their wings to dry it out till it becomes sticky. When it’s ready, they seal the cell with a wax lid to keep it clean.
So that’s how bees make honey. They don’t make very much of it, though. It takes at least eight bees all their life to make one single teaspoonful. Fortunately for us, they usually make more than they need, so we can have some, too.
Savour the goodness of natural, unprocessed honey collected and bottled in the pristine environs of the mighty Himalayan ranges of Uttarakhand, India.
This honey is RAW – not heated, not pasteurised, not coloured and no chemicals added. It is as pure as nature meant it to be.
The Himalayan ranges provide some of the most natural and diverse forest products which are still harvested the traditional way.
