The honey of Provence
Natural product par excellence, the honey is elaborated by foraging bees from the nectar which they take on the flowers of their environment. It’s a curiosity of the nature, because it is the only product known today that is rot-proof and non-perishable. More than 2000 years old honey was found that was still edible. But honey consumption by man is much older. Honey has healing and antibacterial properties.
Provence honey is a highly sought-after product as its taste quality and its beneficial properties are known throughout the world. Honey from Provence is also a Protected Geographical Indication, validated by a label. Without this label, it is theoretically impossible to sell a honey called "de Provence", even if this honey has been harvested in the region. Its particularity is linked to the terroir and a very rich Mediterranean flora, with plant species loaded with essential oils (lavender, rosemary, thyme, etc ...).
Offer this box as a gift of fine grocery to please a lover of honey. No doubt your sweet box delivery will be appreciated. If you want to add a nice package, two offers are available: a black window bag, or a drawer-shaped box, with red glossy cover underlined by a white ribbon.
