Propolis Honey vs Manuka Honey - Why Björn's Propolis Honey is a Better Choice

Propolis Honey vs Manuka Honey - Why Björn's Propolis Honey is a Better Choice
Manuka honey, which comes from Australia and New Zealand, is a popular product among people who eat honey to be healthy but Björn's propolis honey is a better understood, local alternative. Propolis is known for its remarkable ability to fight microbes and when blended with our local wildflower and clover honey, it becomes a tasty and healthy immune booster. 

Local Honey, Local Pollen, and Allergies

Local Honey, Local Pollen, and Allergies
When we eat local honey, we expose our bodies to trace amounts of local pollens. The idea is that our bodies then become accustomed to these pollens and don't release histamines. Without histamines, there are no symptoms of seasonal allergies.

Björn’s Honeyed Blood Orange Panna Cotta
Panna cotta means “cooked cream” in Italian and making it is about that easy. Cream and sugar are cooked and then mixed with unflavored gelatin, then sour cream and cold milk. It does have to set for around 4 hours but otherwise, it is a super easy dessert for a cozy winter dinner at home as a Valentine’s Day treat. Tastes like a grown-up orange creamsicle!

Björn’s Honey Baklava

Baklava is often associated with Greek cuisine but it's a dish that dates back to the Ottoman empire. It is eaten throughout the Mediterranean and middle east and is very popular in Turkey. Turks and Greeks both claim the dish as their own, but it likely belongs to both cultures. Made with layers of thin dough and ground nuts, most often pistachios or walnuts, and sugar syrup or honey, it’s a great way to highlight the taste of our local honey.


Björn's Colorado Honey offers local Boulder and Denver honey as well as bee-based skincare featuring beeswax, honey, and propolis. Our honey is raw and unfiltered, providing great taste plus the benefits of local pollen.

We are small batch, local, honey producers based in Boulder. Pontus, our beekeeper, grew up in Sweden and learned the practice from his grandfather Björn; the company namesake.
