Kamahi Honey with Rosehip

Green Bay has paired RAW Kamahi Honey (“car-ma-he”) with exquisite, natural Bulgarian Rosehip. The result is a sweet and delicate honey with a slight tartness of flavour that is delicious on scones, toasted or fresh bread and as a natural sweetener for summer-time tea.


Rosehip is an old-fashioned natural remedy for all the family and reputed to be beneficial for the stomach, back pain and arthritis.

We combined milled rosehip with our RAW Kamahi Honey which comes from the wilderness of New Zealand’s South Island where the native Kamahi tree grows abundantly in the forest canopy. The honeybees gather nectar from the spike of small, creamy white flowers in spring to create this distinct, golden honey.

Rose hips are the round portion of the rose flower just below the petals. Rose hips contain the seeds of the rose plant. Dried rose hips and the seeds are used together to make medicine.Fresh rose hips contain a lot of vitamin C, so they share many uses with vitamin C including preventing and treating coldsflu, and vitamin C deficiencies. However, much of the vitamin C in rose hips is destroyed during drying and processing and also declines rapidly during storage. Because of this, many rose hip-derived “natural” vitamin C products have actually been fortified with lab-made vitamin C, but their labels may not always say so.Rose hips are also used for stomach disorders including stomach spasms, stomach acid deficiency, preventing stomach irritation and ulcers, and as a “stomach tonic” for intestinal diseases. They are also used for diarrheaconstipation,gallstonesgallbladder ailments, lower urinary tract and kidney disorders, fluid retention (dropsy or edema), gout, back and leg pain (sciatica), diabeteshigh cholesterolweight losshigh blood pressure, chest ailments, fever, increasing immune function during exhaustion, increasing blood flow in the limbs, increasing urine flow and quenching thirst.

In foods and in manufacturing, rose hips are used for tea, jam, soup, and as a natural source of vitamin C.
