Lavender Honey 8oz
Colorado Mtn Jam (CMJ) buys this meticulously handled, gourmet honey from Epicurean Honey Company, which is located not far from us in Western Colorado. The beautiful lavender that CMJ uses to infuse in the Lavender Honey is grown right on the same farm where our Plum Daisy Kitchen is located. Evidence of honey being prescribed as a medical treatment dates back to ancient Mesopotamia. Because the substance is so inhospitable to bacteria, it was often used as a natural bandage to protect cuts and burns from infection. Lavender contains over 100 known compounds, including phytochemicals and antioxidants. The most well-known of these compounds is limonene, which stimulates digestive enzymes in the liver and may help to detoxify the body. Lavender is also renowned for its calming effects.
