This week we are showcasing a new brand that has been proving very popular  – within days of being on display!

Miód Raw Honey are an Edinburgh based beekeepers and honey merchants, specialising in rare, high quality honey, hand-packed with recycled materials.

We thought it would be great to do a feature on this brand right now! Its makes for perfect timing as we begin to embrace the colder weather and our attention is turned to the potential benefits honey has to offer during these winter months. Being one of natures most versatile products and  best all round remedies, honey boasts a myriad of health benefits, so it is easy to see why it becomes a winter staple for many.

A daily dose of honey increases antioxidant activity of blood and helps to reduce free-radical damage in the blood stream. Honey is also a source of minerals such as copper, B2, B6, iron, silica, manganese, calcium and potassium. So incorporating it into your daily life is very beneficial for your health!

Aside from the health benefits honey has to offer, Miod have developed a line of beautifully flavoured honeys to cater to all tastes, which are delicious alone, or incorporated in many hot beverages and dishes.
