Great for everyday use, this sage honey has a lightly sweet taste with herbal notes and a mild floral after taste. Extracted from central coast of California following the pollination of local black button sage, expect this varietal to have a medium to light amber color.
A very popular monofloral honey across North America, the predominant nectar source for sage honey is the flower of the Salvia officinalis plant more commonly referred to as sage. You’re more likely to be familiar with the leaves of the herb, which are commonly used in the culinary world to spice up a variety of dishes.
A unique feature of sage honey is that it is extremely slow to crystallize. So, no need to worry about a change in texture if you’re slow to consume your honey.
Curious about the benefits of sage honey? Some noted benefits include: aiding digestion, improving blood flow, and when experiencing a cold it can help in the expulsion of mucus from lungs, stomach, and esophagus. So be sure to load up before cold season.

This ensures all the good stuff found naturally in raw honey, like vitamins, minerals, pollen, enzymes, and antioxidants are in tact when our products reach your door. It's the real deal - straight from the hive.
