Honey from Etna

KAVITA Khorana and her husband started Etna in late 2015. They borrowed the name from Mount Etna, one of the world’s most frequently erupting volcanos. “Etna is a metaphor for longevity and aliveness,” explains Khorana.

Etna makes a range of natural honey which tastes good and is nutritious too. Honey bees fed on the nectar of jamun flowers give jamun honey. Those fed on the nectar of coriander flowers produce coriander honey.

Coriander honey protects the liver and regulates insulin levels. Eucalyptus honey is recommended for people with aches and pains, and ligament and tendon sprains. Jamun honey can help reduce weight and improve metabolism. Mustard honey can soothe a sore throat and cough, and acacia honey is good for eye problems and skin disorders.

The honey is sourced from all over India. Jamun honey comes from Uttar Pradesh, mustard honey from Rajasthan and acacia honey from Kashmir. Etna also has a wonderful range of teas and blends — masala tea, jasmine tea and more.
