tt honey1

Pure, unheated, unprocessed, and raw honey. Certified Organic and certified kosher. 

I have heard from so many of my fans that just love this honey & say they will not use any other brands ever. tt raw honey Collage

So because of all the fan enthusiasm I almost could not wait for my very own jar to arrive. I was thinking why have I not tried this honey before now? Tropical Traditions has always had great products & I have not tried one I do not like, everything from Virgin coconut oil & Goat Milk Powder to GMO free Corn Starch I have loved every product.

Review time!

I  was tracking my package eager for this honey to arrive, I could almost taste it the closer tt raw honey2it got, then finally it was here brought to my door carried by my smiling FedEx guy. Once inside as normal all 6 of my kids sat around & watched this box being opened like it held the mystery of the universe or something. They all knew it was the honey I had been waiting for & knew that meant they would be getting to use the honey too.

As normal the package arrived fast & safe, not a glitch. But has been noted before if there are any issues Tropical Traditions waste no time fixing the issue.

So I opened the jar & knew instantly I was in love❤ It is a thicker honey than most are used to, but I have used honey like this many times & must say sometimestt honey the thicker honey is my favorite depending on use. The kids prefer it for sore throats because they can slowly let it melt down their throat.

Yes I am very happy to recommend this honey to anyone who can not buy local raw honey, actually I recommend this product to have on hand in case you run out of local raw honey as well. Such an amazing taste I can see why the fans that contacted me say they will never use another honey again.

My kids also loved this honey, it fast became the new favorite honey for their honey water, my teens love using honey to sweeten with & they also like to use it for skin care & they asked me to get more of this honey, they say it is the best!

We love to use honey, how do you use Honey?

TT Canadian raw honey 1Honey is one of those must have items in our house, it gets used on cereals, hot cereals, in hot beverages, in smoothies & protein shakes, to sooth & heal, on our skin & hair, in recipes replacing other sweeteners & so many times just by the spoonful to calm a sweet tooth. And the Tropical Traditions honey worked great for all these uses.

Below are some of our favorite recipes & uses we found for the Tropical Traditions Honey.

Honey water

In my house honey water simply means warmed water with Apple cider vinegar or Coconut water vinegar &/or Lemon juice & raw honey to taste. It is a great for a relaxing hot beverage.

Add 1 tsp. to 1 tbsp. of vinegar or Lemon juice to a mug of already warmed water, then add honey to taste. Do not heat anything but the water.

Honey Popcorn

This recipe does require heating the honey, so we do not do it to often, but when we do it goes fast.

Pop 1/2 cup of Tropical Traditions popcorn & add to a large bowl set aside.

In a small saucepan over med heat: 1/2 cup coconut milk (or whatever milk or heavy cream you want) 1 tsp. vanilla extract & 2 tbsp. Organic real butter until melted, remove from heat & mix 1/4 cup of honey into the mixture.

Put on low heat & string for about 8 minutes & pour over the popcorn in bowl using to large spoons to mix thoroughly. You can add salt at this point if you want & keep stirring.

Allow to cool slightly & enjoy

Face mask

Simply mix enough raw honey with baking soda & water to make a paste, gently rub onto your face to exfoliate, then allow to sit 5 or 10 minutes & wash off. Great for many skin conditions & great to soften skin. Great for all skin types.

Washing hair

add 1 to 2 tsp. of honey to one cup of warm/hot water & stir, pour onto your dry hair 7 work into scalp (you might need to times this by 3 or 4 for long hair)

Let sit a minute or to & rinse out. If you want you can also mix 1 tsp. of baking soda per cup of warm water.

Tropical Traditions sells a Mulling spice that we love & this honey went so well to sweeten it.

Info from

A Raw Product from the Wilderness

Tropical Traditions Organic Raw Honey comes from the frontier areas of Canada, and is only Tropical Traditions raw honey 1harvested during a 6-week period in the summer. Tropical Traditions is the exclusive source of this premium organic honey in the U.S. Most commercial honeys available on the market today come from bee farms, where the bees are controlled within a certain area and get their pollen from usually only one kind of flower. Many of the plants that produce these flowers (clover, orange blossom, etc.) are grown with pesticides and fertilizers as well. In addition, almost all honeys on the market are pasteurized in high heat and filtered, removing many of the beneficial nutrients and enzymes.

Tropical Traditions Organic Raw Honey has not been subjected to the heat of processing, only warmed enough to flow (same temperatures the honey would see inside the hive). We select only premium honey that is pure, smooth and creamy, with the consistency of soft margarine at  harvest. It contains live yeast and enzymes, because it has not been processed. It also contains pollen because it has not been filtered—merely screened.

Fine textured crystals are characteristic of totally pure, unheated, unprocessed, raw honey. Properly crystallized honey has a fine, smooth texture. Crystallized honey preserves natural goodness and doesn’t drip. The more rapidly honey crystallizes the finer the texture will be. It  will also turn harder over time as it crystallizes. Truly raw honeys do not deteriorate with age, but like fine wines, continue to age and develop into more complex tastes.Tropical Traditions honey

Certified Organic Raw Honey from Canada

In order for honey to be certified organic, the beehives must be placed in isolated areas miles from the dense population, industry, traffic congestion, and farm fields treated with chemicals and landfills. Second, a bee’s flying range is determined by their natural instinct which tells them to stay within their natural four mile range from the hive location. Finding area which can be certified organic is extremely difficult, which is why there are so few certified organic honeys on the market. Tropical Traditions sources its honey from hives in the wild frontier areas of Canada.

These regions are a rich source of wild vegetation that produce some of the finest honey in the world. The USDA and Canadian Organic Certification implies a rigorous set of standards and conditions that must be adhered to by both the producer (beekeeper) and the packager. All aspects of the honey production including the source of the nectar, forage tthoneyarea of the bees, management of the bees, extracting process, transportation, “lot” management, processing temperature, integrity (no co-mingling with non-organic honey), screening, and, packaging materials, are taken into account in the certification process.

Try some, and we think you’ll agree that there is no finer honey in North America! Raw, organic, Canadian honey, available exclusively in the US through Tropical Traditions.
