Hello honey lovers,
This summer, our bees and the team at Local Honey Man have been very busy working on a new range of infused honeys for you to enjoy and we are so excited to be able to announce the launch of our new Egyptian black seed infused honey, which will be available for you to taste and to purchase in our store as well as online here.
All of our honey is raw and unpasteurised, meaning that it has not gone through the typical boiling process that your typical supermarket honey has. It is a completely natural product – we take nothing away from it and so all the honey retains all its antibacterial and antioxidant goodness. That is why it tastes so good! Our black seed honey, however, is extra special with double the antibacterial antioxidant power. Both raw honey and black seed have excellent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, but the amazing thing is that they have a variety of different nutrients which work well together to help your body feel the best it can feel and to make you glow from the inside out! We already know that local honey can be good as a natural remedy for hayfever, well, black seed too has similar properties in helping the respiratory system and is known to help with asthma sufferers. In recent laboratory studies it has also been shown to have anti-cancer properties.
So what are you waiting for? Our new black seed honey is a store cupboard essential ready to boost your immune system for the upcoming autumn, its unusual infusion makes it the perfect gift for that honey connoisseur in your life, and in the process you can do your bit to reverse the decline of the honey bee by supporting our project of ethical beekeeping.
Experts recommend eating black seed daily in order to reap its full benefits, but don’t worry – there are several quick, simple ways to add our new black seed raw honey to your diet. With its satisfying sweet taste and natural grainy texture, it makes a great mouth-watering alternative to refined sugar. Why not try drizzling some on your porridge in the morning, spreading some onto a slice of freshly toasted bread, swirling it into a bowl of greek yoghurt or adding it to your smoothies? You can even make facemarks with it – try mixing together half an avocado with a teaspoon of black seed honey and some oats. Spread the mixture onto your face, let it dry, remove it and glow! You can leave the leftovers of the mask in the fridge for another day.
I personally love making a tasty, nutritious and filling snack bowl, especially after a morning working at the market stalls. Why don’t you try making your own – it is so quick and delicious! Add some mixed frozen berries, a sprinkle of mixed nuts or seeds and a teaspoon of Local Honey Man black seed honey to a 170g of greek yoghurt. It’s a perfect refreshing snack for a summer afternoon. Mix it all together and enjoy.
Of course, don’t forget to show us your black seed honey creations by tagging us in your Instagram pictures @localhoneymanuk or by tweeting us @localhoneymanuk. And in the meantime, keep your eyes peeled for exciting new developments, including our ginger infused honey and turmeric infused honey!
