A type of honeydew honey, fir honey is made by bees from the honeydew of the fir tree rather than the nectar.
Honeydew is a natural sweet sap secreted by aphids and other plant bugs. The bees collect honeydew, process and concentrate it in the hive and store it in the honeycomb cells. This is how fir honey is made.
Fir honey is very rich in minerals and terpenes, which soften mucus in diseases of the respiratory system. It is considered an excellent remedy for coughs, bronchitis and other respiratory ailments.
