Frequently Asked Questions

Honey Remedies are new to a lot of folks, and we want answer all of your questions. If you don't see the answer to your question below, please feel free to reach out to us directly.

Like any honey product, Sunn Remedies shouldn't be given to infants under 12 months. Feel free to share with any humans over 1 year old, but you'll want to use smaller doses proportional by weight. We're currently working on formulas specific for kids, so stay tuned!

The pollen, propolis, antioxidants, and enzymes found in raw honey are destroyed at temperatures above 110°F. Heating honey higher than 140°F degrades the quality of the honey and temperatures above 160°F caramelize the sugars. We highly recommend not cooking with Sunn Remedies, and when making tea, don't use boiling water.

Crystals are beautiful, but we understand that you might not want them in your honey remedy. The thing is, all natural honey can crystallize, but the product is not spoiled and it's still as safe and effective as it was the day it was made. If this happens, simply place the jar in warm water for a while, then stir it a few times to bring back its smooth consistency.

The short answer is no. The slightly longer answer is, kept sealed in an airtight container, the National Honey Board says honey remains edible indefinitely—even if it crystalizes or darkens over time. How great is that?

Sugar gets a bad rap, but mostly that's about refined sugar. Natural sugar is the body's ideal fuel source. Natural sugars are anti-stress, anti-inflammatory, and pro-metabolism. Virtually every cell in our body functions optimally on glucose, especially the ones in your brain. A moderate amount of natural sugar can be part of healthy, balanced diet.

Several studies have found that eating honey may increase insulin levels and decrease levels of blood sugar. That's good news, but please consult your healthcare provider before use.
