One of natures miracles, the bees build this incredibly complex structure to house their larvae, pollen and honey and then cap it with a layer of wax. As the bees build their special hexagonal home, they purposely keep the wax under 40 degrees, at which point it turns into liquid. In this maze, the comb becomes a store for their food . Western Australian honey comb, due to the fact that no chemicals are used in the preparation of the honey means it's some, if not the purest in the world.
Why Honey Comb?
We believe that honey comb represents the most natural and delicious way to consume honey. While its not yet popular in stores, the untreated, unheated and unblended nature of it means you’re getting honest honey. As we say- the Honey Comb doesn’t lie. The combs completely safe to eat, and while it may contain propolis and pollen, it’s the way nature intended. Some people prefer to shave the top layer of wax off, while other spit it out or eat it.
