A Greek, traditional, pure organic honey that has a heart of gold...literally! A veritable treasure gathered on the island of Evia, it captivates with its rich sweet nature and is worth its weight in edible gold!
A superb, organic, pure thyme honey with flakes of edible gold. It is part of Stayia farm's "Vasilissa" Honey Collection and has won an award for food innovation. With honey like this, it's impossible to pinpoint which one of its two ingredients you're attracted to the most: the thyme honey, popular because of its sophisticated taste and high nutritional value, or the edible 24K gold flakes it is mixed with? In the end, you realise that you're sitting on a gold mine of nutrition and healing and you go for the lot! Edible gold is a precious metal whose legendary properties include antioxidant action, cell regeneration, and mental enhancement. What's more, it prevents skin from succumbing to premature aging and drastically fights free radicals.
Gold has been hailed throughout history for its healing and beautifying properties. Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt, viewed pure gold as an indispensable ally in keeping her skin youthful and slept with a gold mask over her face every night. Ancient Romans also used gold to treat a number of skin-related problems. Stayia Farm's Thyme Honey with 24K edible gold is all-natural and additive-free. It's part of the company's "Vasilissa" Honey Collection which comes complete with a Greek Mythology legend on its name, "Vasilissa": Cronus was the king of the Titans. The seers had foretold him that he was destined to be overthrown by his own sons. So, as soon as sons were born to him he would devour them to prevent the prophecy from coming true. However, Zeus, his sixth son, did survive thanks to Melissa (the Greek word for 'bee'), a mountain nymph who hid him from his father and fed him honey. Cronus was furious when he found out and changed her into an earthworm. Later on, Zeus, who could not but be grateful for her ministrations when he was an infant, broke Cronus' spell and transformed her into a queen (Vasilissa) bee. Dark bronze in color, Stayia Farm heather honey appeals instantly and promises lingering moments of sweet pleasure.
