Move over, Manuka! Introducing Spain's own superfood honey, Oak Honey!


From deep in Sierra del Rincón forests and the remote mountains, where the oak trees grow at around 1100 meters in an extremely wild and untouched place, comes our truly Organic Oak Honey. The oak tree, referred to as "Roble" in Spanish, is a notable deciduous tree that belongs to the beech family, a surprising association. Remarkably, some oak trees can thrive for over 1000 years! Bees are especially drawn to the sap derived from the tree's acorns.

Multiple scientific research studies and laboratory testing have highlighted the efficiency of oak honey, showcased significant bioactivity and offering notable benefits for overall wellness. Known for its therapeutic properties, this honey variety has been observed to assist in managing various common ailments and may even provide relief for certain chronic conditions.

Health Benefits of Oak Honey


Oak honey is packed with a variety of beneficial nutrients that contribute to its impressive health benefits. This very dark honey, less sweet than other varieties, boasts a deep, earthy flavor with subtle notes of caramel, malt, and a hint of smokiness. Here's a closer look at some of the key ways oak honey can support your well-being:

Rich in Antioxidants

Oak honey is a potent source of antioxidants, which help combat free radicals in the body. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage cells and contribute to various health problems, including chronic diseases like heart disease and cancer. Studies have shown that oak honey exhibits higher levels of antioxidant activity compared to other honey varieties.

Promotes Digestive Health

Oak honey contains prebiotics, which are a type of fiber that nourishes the good bacteria in your gut. These beneficial bacteria play a crucial role in digestion, nutrient absorption, and immune function. Prebiotics in oak honey can help promote a healthy gut microbiome, potentially aiding in digestion and reducing symptoms of digestive disorders like constipation and diarrhea.

Antimicrobial Properties

Oak honey possesses natural antimicrobial properties, meaning it can inhibit the growth of some microorganisms. This quality makes it a potential weapon against harmful bacteria and fungi. One study, backed by the Turkish Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, found that oak honey has high antimicrobial activity, primarily through a bacteriostatic mechanism. The study also suggests that oak honey's effectiveness against clinical strains of human pathogens opens doors for its use in apitherapy, a treatment modality utilizing honey for various health conditions.

Antibacterial and Antifungal Properties

Oak honey possesses natural antibacterial and antifungal properties. Research suggests that oak honey may be effective against certain strains of bacteria and fungi, including Staphylococcus aureus (staph infection) and Candida albicans (thrush).

Soothes Sore Throats and Coughs

Oak honey's antimicrobial properties, combined with its thick, viscous consistency, can provide a soothing effect for sore throats and coughs. The honey may help coat and protect the irritated throat tissues, while its potential antibacterial activity can help fight off infection. 

Wound Healing

Studies have explored the potential of oak honey to promote wound healing. The honey's antibacterial properties and its anti-inflammatory effects may contribute to faster wound healing and reduced risk of infection.

Mineral Content

Oak honey is a natural source of essential minerals, including potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, iron, and sodium. These minerals play various roles in the body, supporting functions like nerve and muscle function, blood pressure regulation, and energy production.

Important to note: Oak honey is generally safe for consumption by most adults, but as with any honey, it's not recommended for infants due to the risk of infant botulism.


Oak honey is a unique and flavorful honey variety packed with a wealth of potential health benefits. From its antioxidant properties to its potential benefits for gut health and wound healing, oak honey offers a natural way to support your overall well-being.
