There are 5 varieties on the market that change according to its being produced from lavender that grows spontaneously to the hybrid one which, although of different colors (an example is lavander honey), is still defined as lavender. Generally amber in color, it has an intense but at the same time sweet aroma which can vary according to the type of cultivation .

How to use lavender honey

Honey, as such, belongs to the family of sweeteners and due to the sugars it contains, it can raise blood sugar, especially if consumed alone or in large quantities. Composed of both fructose and glucose, it is perfect to use at breakfast, preferably as part of a balanced meal such as the one made up of a sugar-free Greek yogurt and a slice of wholemeal bread with a teaspoon of honey.

Also excellent on cheeses or with dried fruit, this honey should always be eaten raw and never cooked. Once heated, it tends to lose some of its properties.
Although it is very good in sweets, in this case it will therefore be considered only for its sweet taste and no longer for its many beneficial properties.

In addition to feeding, it is excellent for healing insect bites, to help heal wounds or to create a nourishing face mask . Furthermore, if dissolved in a glass of water (in which case a teaspoon is enough) it is excellent for counteracting sore throats or for preventing flu.

This honey is therefore rich in benefits as well as an appearance and a taste that make it a unique product of its kind and which, for this reason, is worth trying at least once in a lifetime.
