Multi-flower honey is collected from a variety of crops, flowers, and herbs. It ranges in color from light to dark brown. The honeys' flavor, color and health benefits are largely dependent on the plant species visited by bees. However, multi-flower honey has a bactericidal effect. Frequent consumption also aids in heart, stomach and intestinal ailments and has a nourishing effect on the skin. Multi-flower honey is mild in flavor, and therefore can be consumed as a natural alternative to sugars and sweeteners.
