It is a unique quality of honey produced exclusively in Crete.


This type of honey is darker than thyme but lighter than pine honey.

Please note: Crystallisation is a natural characteristic of unprocessed, untreated honey, reflecting its pure and untouched state straight from the hive. While some may perceive crystallization as a change in texture or appearance, rest assured, it's simply nature at work, preserving the honey's inherent qualities.

Despite its crystallised form, the nutritional and biological value of honey remains intact. This means that whether your honey is smooth or crystallized, you're still enjoying the same wholesome benefits and delicious taste that only pure Greek, unprocessed honey can provide.

Embrace it as a mark of authenticity—a reassuring sign that your honey is free from artificial processing and brimming with natural goodness

How to de-crystallise honey

The process to de-crystallising honey is simple. Crystallised honey liquefies in 'ben-marie', at 45-50 Degrees Celsius, without losing any of its nutritional value. Alternatively, you can place the jar with the lid open in the oven at 40 degrees Celsius until it liquefies.
