Jungle House: Healthy Honey Heads Home To You
April 12, 2020
Honey, we're home: Jungle House harnesses the raw, reviving power of pure nectar, straight from wild bee combs in Southeast Asia's tropical forests, delivered to your doorstep for nature's ultimate nutrition boost. It's the bee's knees, indeed!
At a time when health concerns have skyrocketed, Jungle House is a brand that's more relevant than ever for the nourishment-conscious. Founded by Ashley Lam, whose passion for this produce was born when she began selling honey in street stalls, Jungle House has been a haven for honey connoisseurs for more than a decade. Ask Ashley about different types of honey, their origins and nutritional value, and she'll prove to have encyclopedic knowledge about this amber treasure.
While Jungle House has many outposts, spanning KL and Selangor to Penang, its products can also be conveniently ordered online. You'll discover an array of honey, characterised by the flowers from which the honey was extracted in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Different flowers promise different health benefits, but throughout the range, the honey retains its fresh, inherent flavours - for example, nectar from strawberry blossoms will convey the rich sweetness of the fruit.
Each batch of honey is tracked from its source, undergoing stringent quality control that includes a filtration technique designed to preserve the nutrients, fruitiness and flavour of raw honey. After filtration, the honey is packaged as a raw product or a beverage. No preservatives, no artificial colouring, no added sugar.
For honey at its most regal, try the Royal Black, premium honey from mahoni tree nectar, with a bitterness that signals a wealth of antioxidants and minerals, acting as an anti-inflammatory agent, battling ailments like heart disease and back pain.
If you prefer zestier, citrus-based honey, sample the signature Royal White, light golden and sticky-soft, harvested from kiawe flowers, believed to yield gentle relief against insomnia, blessed with anti-aging properties.
Did you know that even durian flowers can be the provenance for bold, exotically aromatic honey? The Fruit Boss is the result, a liquid honey with faint bitterness, traditionally relied on for energy and male fertility.
Returning to our mention of strawberry flowers, the Jungle's Heart is a dark brown delight that boasts unmistakable nuances of strawberries, loaded with Vitamin A and antioxidants - this might be our best bet for now, since it's considered a classic remedy for flu, coughs and sore throats.
All in all, Jungle House's main product series comprises nine types of honey - other possibilities include coffee flower nectar (also to ease the flu, coughs and sore throat), cotton flower nectar (a high-antioxidant powerhouse for stamina), linden tree nectar (for eyesight), longan flower nectar (anti-bacterial, for skin complexion) and mango flower nectar (promoting a healthy gut). Products are generally available as a Basic (starting at RM96 for 350ml), Regular (starting at RM104 for 500ml), Premium (starting at RM200 for 500ml, with three times the concentration), or in Juice form (see chart above for details).
Currently, customers who order online at junglehouse.com.my can enjoy 20% off any one honey.
Note that Jungle House also offers raw honeycomb, for customers seeking the purest honey experience possible, a versatile ingredient for your everyday sustenance. This comes in batches of 400 grams, soft and mellow to the bite, a little sweet and lightly sour (RM160).
Customers can currently also savour massive savings through seven bundled bargains, perfect for the entire family's consumption.
The ideal starter kit is the Back To Basics pack, which comes with four varieties of Basic honey (each one at 310 grams), plus handcrafted Royal White honey soap and a convenient tea pack. This clocks in at RM388, representing a savings of RM150 from its full price.
If immunity is your ideal priority, check out the Super Immunity pack - two Premium concentrated honeys, three Regular honeys, handmade honey soap, a pack of dragonfruit tea, and the Honey of Joy set, comprising three 40-gram packs of honey that might be perfect for gifting (RM829 for this big bundle, representing savings of nearly RM400).
There's a pack for every concern, from Detox Care (400g of raw honeycomb, two Premium honeys and and one Basic, as well as Honey with Joy gift set and the dragonfruit tea pack) to the Energizer (combining four regular honeys with honey soap, plus Honey with Joy and the tea pack).
If you must have the most popular pack, pick the Best Seller, bringing together all the top-flight favourites - a collection of raw honeycomb, two types of Premium honeys, two Basic honeys, Honey with Joy, honey soap, and a dragonfruit tea pack. This pack would typically cost RM1,274, but for a limited time, customers can order it for RM850, representing more than RM400 of savings.
The Gift Set bundles are now available at these steeply discounted rates as part of Jungle House's Covid-19 Immunity Awareness campaign. Click here to view them on Jungle House's website.
Jungle House's honey can be consumed everyday to enliven your meals - perhaps kick-start the morning with a breakfast that blooms with honey.
