Eucalyptus honey


How it is produced

Within the Italian peninsula, eucalyptus honey can often be obtained within the regions located in the central and southern part.

In particular, eucalyptus honey is extremely widespread in areas where the trees of the same name were planted following swamp reclamation works.

Just to give an example, Lazio is one of the regions hosting the largest number of hives, since bees come from both the regions above and from those further south.

In the other regions, however, the influx of bees is much more limited than in Lazio.

In any case, the unifloral eucalyptus honeys are extracted and obtained mainly from the hives of the regions of central Italy, while in the north the production of this honey is not very high.


Property

The eucalyptus honey can boast a large number of antispasmodic and phlegm-fighting properties.

It is a honey that is held in particular consideration due to the fact that it is also able to carry out important emollient and calming activities, especially against a disease so widespread during the winter season such as cough.

Still from an antiseptic point of view, eucalyptus honey is also used for the treatment of the urinary and intestinal tract.

We must not forget how eucalyptus honey is also used quite frequently as a real vermifuge and healing agent for the treatment of affections affecting the mouth.


Composition

Eucalyptus honey is always characterized by having a particularly limited level of humidity (with a percentage that is even around 14%) and, for this reason, the density is greater.

This particular type of honey is characterized by denoting an amber color, which in many cases has a tendency to become gray (especially after the crystallization phase occurs) and crystallizes until it reaches particularly fine grains and has a consistency decidedly united and compact.

The traditional smell of eucalyptus honey is quite woody, since it can often evoke dried mushrooms as well.

Eucalyptus honey can certainly be considered as one of those foods that belong to the category of strongly aromatic honeys.

The scent of this honey is typically intense and obviously resembles that which characterizes the leaves and flowers of the homonymous plant.

During the crystallization phase, eucalyptus honey has the particular characteristic of assuming a much lighter color, until it reaches a color similar to ivory.

In particular, this honey is extremely widespread in the herbal field, due to the fact that it can be used for a large number of therapeutic purposes.

Eucalyptus honey: Curiosities

Before the commercial purpose of unifloral honeys was discovered, eucalyptus honey was not sold very easily, while nowadays we can certainly say that it is one of the most widespread honeys on the market, also due to its remarkable virtues and properties. beneficial.

In a region of southern Italy, Calabria, a particular unifloral honey is produced starting from the Eucalypttus globuluss plant.

In the latter case, the honey has a much darker color than the honey that is produced during the summer season, as well as having a much more intense flavor: precisely for this reason, this particular type of eucalyptus honey has encountered no few difficulties in its marketing.

The smell of this honey can often remind of foods with a decidedly intense aroma, such as curry, licorice or helichrysum: it is a honey that has a particularly intense aroma and, as such, cannot certainly please everyone, even if it is often used in the preparation of numerous natural remedies for the treatment of winter ailments.


As the name suggests, this honey is produced by bees who suck the nectar from the flowers of the plant of the same name. Eucalyptus is one evergreen tree plant, originally from Oceania and the Philippines. It was studied and observed for the first time by a French botanist in the 1700s, who is also responsible for the name attributed to it.

Eucalyptus, in fact, derives from the Greek and means "well hidden". The reference is clearly not to the plant, but to its flower. The flower, in fact, remains completely hidden by the petals until the moment of flowering. It was introduced in Italy towards the end of the 18th century. It was widely used in the Agro Romano areas as it was a common belief that the scent of its leaves could cleanse the air and counter the spread of malaria. In fact, its contribution was linked to the absorption of the numerous stagnant waters in which mosquitoes, vectors of the disease, reproduced.

It is a very plant widespread throughout the Tyrrhenian coast and in Sicily and Sardinia, where it alone contributes to the production of 50% of the honey of the whole island. From its leaves an essential oil is produced that has strong calming, antiseptic, balsamic and antiparasitic properties for coughs.

The period of flowering is included between July and August and from its flowers the bees produce very particular and characteristic honey.

SALES REGULATION OF BEEKEEPING PRODUCTS

Once we have overcome the bureaucratic meadri and the impervious tortuosity of the law on production, we recover the main objective of the activity: to sell our product on the market. In the case of wholesale trade, therefore aimed at commercial operators in general, the reference legislation - that of trade in general - there are no particular provisions that specifically regulate the sale of honey. The same is true for the retail sale of honey. If this takes place in an itinerant form, for example the market banquet, the merchant is subject to prior communication to the mayor of the municipality where the (itinerant) company is based or to the mayor of the municipality where the sale is to be carried out: in any case the sale may begin thirty days after the communication has been received.

Today, both direct farmers (registered in the business register) and agricultural producers can sell their bee products in the most appropriate forms, including electronic commerce, which is the most convenient way to reach the widest spectrum of consumers.

We also remind you that in order to start the sales activity, "the provisions in force regarding hygiene and sanitation must be observed" which, in the case of the sale of packaged products, are limited to compliance with the usability of the premises used. Deposits are not subject to health regulations and therefore, taking for example a small consortium producer that uses common facilities for honey extraction and packaging (health authorizations required by the manager of these facilities), he will proceed with the sale of honey after having simply communicated to the Mayor the start of the sales activity.


A VERY SPECIAL EUCALYPTUS

There is a particular variety of eucalyptus able to amaze those who are lucky enough to come across it by chance or to observe one of the images that portray it. The tree, nicknamed "Rainbow Eucalyptus", Whose Latin name is Eucalyptus deglupta, is part of the only species of eucalyptus whose presence can be found in the northern hemisphere. The fundamental reason why the magnificent specimens of the unusual tree are used by those who cultivate them is the production of wood that will be used in turn for making paper. A real havoc for trees that represent one of the most spectacular forms of spontaneous art that nature is able to offer us.


Looking at the images, at first glance, it would not seem that it can be a tree with a completely natural trunk. Instead it is so, its rainbow colors are in fact completely the result of the work of Mother Nature. Some people around the world are lucky enough to host it in their garden for purely decorative purposes. It is indeed a tree certainly capable of brighten the view with their bright colors.

Not everyone is lucky enough to have a eucalyptus in the garden but even your home can be cheered and refreshed by the presence of some eucalyptus branch in bloom, excellent among other things as a natural air freshener.
