I remember meeting Kevin and Chloe for the first time and talking honey with them. Their passion for what they do is evident from the first moment you meet them. This would be the first time working with a Honey manufacturing company for me and I was ready to ask a 1000 questions and they were both ready to provide me with a 1000 answers. One of the facts I was most interested in finding out more about was the statement that they used bees that had not been treated with antibiotics, this truly fascinated me as it was something I had yet to read on the label of a jar of honey. I honestly had never been told that antibiotics being fed to bees was a thing. Did you know this?
What does oneroot mean?
The name “oneroot” represents our philosophy that all things share a common root and that all things are connected. taking care of nature is in our best interest. When it comes to honey, we believe healthy bees in clean environments produce the highest quality honey. So who is Oneroot…
What sets us apart?
We all love the sweet taste of honey. but do you know where your honey comes from and how it’s processed? The majority of honey in the market are mixed with cheaper honey known to be contaminated and sometimes even mixed with syrup and fillers. Regulations exist to limit or ban contaminated honey, but the big companies find ways to launder them into our markets.
We wanted natural honey harvested using only ethical and organic beekeeping methods. We traveled across Canada, looking for the cleanest land for honey bees. and we are confident we have the best honey Canada has to offer.
Our honey has been tested by independent laboratories including the University of Guelph. Results show zero traces of antibiotics and pesticides. HMF (hydroxymethylfurfural) levels are below 7mg/kg, which shows that our honey has not been heated.
Honey from the north
Honey harvested from colder climate is known to have higher concentration of its natural health benefits. A cold climate is less prone to diseases, and thus allows for organic beekeeping methods without the use of antibiotics. We only bottle unpasteurized raw honey from clean floral sources.
Never mixed or blended
Our honey is always from a single source. it is never mixed with other honey. We believe honey should be appreciated for its local unique flavour and aroma. All of our honey is 100% traceable, and that means we can pinpoint which area and which flowers the honey came from. With most brands of honey, distributors and even the producer will not be able to tell you where their honey came from because they’ve been blended with barrels of outside honey.
We focus not only on the quality of honey, but the health of the bee population as well. Most honey bees currently cannot survive without the use of antibiotics and they suffer from various diseases and mites. We believe in strong bees that can fight off diseases. That’s why we try to build the immunity for our bee colonies by providing them with healthy conditions to live in and not using drugs to treat them. Strong healthy bees make the highest quality honey.
Let’s talk about products and we can start with their top selling sku –

We believe the highest quality honey comes from healthy bees in clean environments. That is why this honey comes purely from wildflowers in the pristine Canadian Boreal Forest, away from conventional farms and industries, which in turn allows us to raise our bees without the use of antibiotics. It is verified through third party lab testing to be free of antibiotics and pesticides.

MY PERSONAL FAVORITE:
Oneroot Organic Cinnamon Honey is made by infusing our organic raw wildflower honey of Northern Canada with Ceylon cinnamon, also known as true cinnamon. This combination creates a great tasting spread that can be served on toast or as tea.
Ceylon cinnamon has a sweeter and less spicy flavour than the more common variety, cassia cinnamon, also known as Chinese cinnamon. Ceylon cinnamon is not only the original cinnamon, but the healthier variety.
Raw honey and Ceylon cinnamon are both rich in antioxidants.
Oneroot comb honey is as raw as it can get. This round comb honey is untouched by human hands and comes straight from the beehives in the vast wilderness of Northern Alberta.
There is more pollen, propolis, and beeswax compared to any other type of honey. Everything in the container is edible. It’s like chewing candy, but healthier!
As with all of our honey, this honeycomb is free of antibiotics and is single-sourced.
Please note the texture will vary greatly depending on the season. During the warm season, it will be soft or runny. During cold seasons, it will crystallize and harden. This is a 100% natural honey that is temperature sensitive.
If your comb honey is crystallized, put it in an oven and turn on the light only (no heat). The warmth from the light bulb will liquidize the crystallized honey.
