Our buckwheat honey is a dark monofloral honey made by bees from the nectar of buckwheat flower. Buckwheat is culinarily used in place of wheat, but buckwheat isn't a type of grass, and is not related to wheat. It is related to sorrel, knotweed, and rhubarb. Therefore, buckwheat is also free of gluten.
Buckwheat flowers have dark nectar, even though its petals are white, which produces its rich dark color of the honey. This dark color is also the sign of its high level of antioxidants present in the honey. We pride ourselves in the purity of our buckwheat honey by placing the beehives in the middle of large buckwheat fields, and thus producing much darker honey than you would typically see on the market.
One study from the University of Illinois found buckwheat honey with tea increased antioxidant levels in the body. And a meta-study on honey showed that it has the highest levels of antioxidants among all types of honey.
Honey is well known to help protect and hydrate your skin. This is why we've formulated our own face mask with our buckwheat honey!
Soothes Your Throat
The research team found honey to be a more effective cough suppressant compared to over-the-counter medicine which was published in the journal, Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine. Honey did a better job reducing nighttime cough's severity, frequency, and bothersome nature from an upper respiratory infection.
Since over-the-counter medicine is not recommended for children under 6 years old, due to its lack of effectiveness and side effects, honey is the better solution when it comes to alleviating coughs for children.
This study used buckwheat honey, the sought-after remedy for cold symptoms.For a child with a cold, the American Academy of Family Physicians recommends the following doses:
- children ages 2 to 5: 2.5mL
- children ages 6 to 11: 5mL
- children ages 12 to 18: 10mL

Have been buying this honey for quite some time now and I really love it. Has many health benefits and it is very pure.
Does wonders for digestive health and for problem prone skin
I'm a few days over a month taking about a tablespoon of the buckwheat honey every night and it's been honestly mind blowing so far. I've struggled with discomfort from Hirschsprung's disease my whole life (mostly as a child) but since I've been taking this honey, everything has changed. My whole digestive system feels amazing. No more abdominal discomfort or annoying trapped gas and everything is working as it should. I've also delt with problem skin on and off through out my life. Most recently, psoriasis patches. Since taking the honey, both the itch and discolouration have begun to fade and shows signs of clearing up with more time (and honey). There have been no new patches either. Just in general, my skin has gotten so soft, more even in tone and texture and feels more moist. I definitely recommend giving it a try. It's definitely worth it. Aside from the health benefits, it has a smooth, luxurious texture and tastes so good. I love it! Thank you, Oneroot! I'm so grateful and will order more when needed.
We're so glad to hear that our honey is helping you improve your health! Thank you for sharing.
