• The honey is free of pesticides, chemicals, antibiotics, growth hormones and genetically modified pollen
• The honey collection process leaves enough honey for the bees and does not harm the forest ecosystem
• There is no chemical contamination within a 2 mile radius. Since Himalaya Soliga Forest Honey is collected from dense tropical evergreen forests, untouched by commercial exploitation, this ‘no-chemicals zone’ extends over a 300 mile radius!!

Himalaya Soliga Forest Honey is 100% organic forest honey made from the nectar of hundreds of forest flowers found in the tropical evergreen forests of South India.
In fact, the BR Hills forest area from which this honey is sourced supports amazingly diverse vegetation. There are over 800 different plant species in this forest and the bees collect honey from about 600 flowering plants!!
Unlike most regular honey, which is sourced from city-bred bees that collect nectar from common or garden plants, Himalaya Soliga Forest Honey is multi-floral forest honey collected from several rare plant species including many medicinal plants.
The bees found in BR Hills are no ordinary bees. They are wild rock bees (Apis Dorsata) that live mostly in and around tropical evergreen forests and cannot be domesticated. They build nests in very tall trees and on steep rocks. The cliffs are so steep that it requires extraordinary courage to climb them and reach the rare colonies built by the rock bees. The nests are huge and yield several kilograms of honey in a single harvest.
Since there is no commercial exploitation of the forests, the area is biodiversity-rich, further enhancing the taste and purity of Himalaya Soliga Forest Honey.
