Wildflower Honey: All You Need to Know

 wildflower honey

It is quite unfortunate to learn that there are over 300 flavors of honey in the market, and most people cannot tell them apart. Yes, 300 different flavonoids. On top of the list is wildflower honey which is the most common in the United States.

The other types of honey that are similarly standard such as:-

  • Clover Honey
  • Orange Blossom Honey
  • Buckwheat Honey
  • Basswood Honey
  • Alfalfa Honey
  • And a few more

It is still essential to know that wildflower has more to offer in terms of benefits, taste and even uses.

What is Wildflower Honey?

This type of honey is also called polyfloral honey. The name stems from the fact that bees collect this honey from different kinds of nectars at the same time. The nectar might have come from various plants, including fruits, herbs, essential oils, flowers and many more.
Wildflower is quite distinctive from the rest because the taste, color and scents differ from one season to the next. This is because wildflower is extracted from different types of flowers that bloom in different seasons of the year.
In short, raw wildflower honey produced in the summer might look and taste different from one produced in autumn because of the difference in dominant flowers during both seasons.

Taste and Color

taste and color honey

Wildflower is not specific on the flowers as bees might collect nectar from different areas at the same time. This will then affect the taste and color of the honey produced.
How do you know what exactly you are purchasing and why it looks the way it does?
Honey that is collected during late summer and early fall often look a bit darker and more potent in taste.
On the other hand, wildflower honey collected in late spring and early summer tends to be lighter in color and even lighter in taste.
You can quickly tell these differences of when it comes to honey from honeypot farm which has dedicated hours of their time and money to ensure you get the best wildflower honey bees to have to offer.
Due to this inconsistency in the flavors and appearance of the honey, manufacturers often prefer to mix everything up to provide wildflower honey that has one taste.
This is the reason why customers can rarely tell one type of honey or flavor from the other.

Note:
Wildflower honey from one region in the world at a particular time tastes entirely different from the same time somewhere else. 

It is good to keep an open an open mind when it comes to the varieties and flavors of honey you want in order to experience the differences.

Uses of Wildflower Honey

Applied on Wounds

Honey can be used on a wound to aid in its healing process. It is said to work on tissue healing hence injuries that have had honey smeared on them heal from the inside and not necessarily outside.
Also, it does not only have to be used solely on the skin. Ingesting any healthy amount of wildflower honey works quite as well.

Used to Reduce Depression and Anxiety

Depression and anxiety

CBD infused wildflower honey is the best option when it comes to alternative treatment for depression and anxiety.
Yes, it is an unusual method of treatment compared to pills administered by ‘big pharma’ and hence a cause for concern for many.
But not to worry, CBD has been proven over the years, to contain anti-depressant effects and anxiolytic properties too.
This means, apart from the honey itself which contains anxiolytic properties too – CBD plays a considerable role in reducing depression and anxiety without causing significant side effects or having health concerns.
This is everything you need to know before you go ahead and buy honey. Whether it is specifically wildflower or you decide to go with another flavor of honey such as orange blossom, the results are more or less the same.
The main differences are usually the color and the taste of the honey, but all the other factors stay the same.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus you own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
