Bashkir Honey

Author: Maria Mushtrieva (on 01 Feb 2015)
Bashkir Honey - Башкирский Мед - is raw, unrefined, and healing.
It’s produced in the wild by the bees in the meadows of Bashkiria, which are very diverse and have a lot of medicinal plants. In fact this substance is so precious that it is called sometimes "Bashkir gold".

Besides, it comes with the honeycomb, which has natural antibiotic properties. So this honey can cure you from almost anything, but only if you get the real stuff.

The honey season is July- mid August, so if you happened to be in Russia at that time try to find a beekeeper and get the fresh honey from the source.
