Orange blossom honey happens when bees collect nectar from the flowers of bitter orange trees. Retaining a faint floral-citrus fragrance from the nectar, this honey has also soothing, humectant and wound healing properties on the skin.
Bees collect nectar from flowers and carry it to their hives where the worker bees convert it into honey. Half a kilogram of honey contains the essence of about two million flowers and the colour, fragrance and properties of honey vary depending on the varieties foraged. Bees need to make thousands of round trips to collect nectar, and a single bee produces only about a teaspoon of honey during its lifetime.
The benefits of honey on the skin and hair are vast as honey contains lots of nutrients, is humectant, antimicrobial and antioxidant and has shown great wound healing properties over the centuries.
