Benefici

Natural

The scent of orange trees in full bloom is probably irresistible for bees - it certainly is for us! 

Where do we get it?

Lush UK sources organic orange blossom honey from a French family business. From a hundred hives in 1890, they have grown to around four thousand today. They only use traditional harvesting techniques and are passionate about animal welfare. This means that the hives, made of natural materials such as wood, remain stationary and that only surplus honey is harvested. 

About a thousand hives are dedicated to the production of orange blossom honey. They are scattered across France and Spain, near organic bitter orange tree crops so that the bees can harvest the nectar from their flowers and turn it into fragrant honey.

With seven manufacturing sites across the globe, this information may vary depending on where your Lush products were made.

Animal Welfare

At Lush, we agree that the modern honey industry treats bees like farmed animals. To ensure their welfare is respected in our supply chain, we work with beekeepers who understand the importance of managing hives with consideration and of working in a minimally invasive way. We do not allow the use of harmful practices such as queen wing clipping or artificial rearing.

Where possible, we aim to work directly with beekeepers, but in any case, we ask for full traceability and adherence to our high standards. We actively encourage and select those who go beyond organic beekeeping and implement regenerative practices that positively impact local wildlife and the hives’ environment.
