Milea Orchard and Bee Farm

We are happy to see more and more farmers and producers integrating beekeeping in their farms. One of them is entrepreneurial Edilee Omoyon of Milea.

We met Edilee during Agrilink 2009. Back then, her concentration was only personal care under the brands Milea Bath & Body Wellness Essentials and All Organics. Last year, she expanded and developed another specialty product line, Milea Baby.

Early this year, Edilee got into organic and natural farming, not only of fresh produce but wild Giant Asian Honeybees (Apis dorsata) as well. That’s why in the recent Agrilink 2011, we were excited to see her booth and the new products from Milea Orchard and Bee Farm.

BENEFITS OF HONEY

Honey is one of the best of all nutritive sweeteners. Taking a spoonful of honey in the morning helps dissolve phlegm, gently warms up the stomach, strengthens it, washes away stomach viscidity and eliminates its sluggishness.

Drinking an infusion of honey and calamansi in the morning is healthier than most drinks that are sweetened with sugar, and is certainly better than artificially sweetened drinks. Honey strengthens the body, preserves its youth, as well as refreshes the spirit, stimulates the liver, and finally, honey stimulates the heart, and provides it with much needed energy and balance. When the heart is healthy, the vessels pump the blood easily, and the arteries carry the blood that is rich in nutrients to all parts of the body.

We tasted three variants of honey: narra, organic raw and combination of coconut, banana, acacia and bagrass. We liked the variant with banana and was happy to bring home a bottle for our multigrain pancakes!

 

THE WONDERS OF BEE POLLEN

Bee pollen has over 96 different nutrients and has been used in traditional Chinese and Ancient Egyptian herbal medicine for thousands of years. It contains every nutrient that is required to sustain human life and all the main antioxidants that have been discovered to date making it one of the most nutritionally complete natural substances we know of.

Bee pollen from coconut flowers increases stamina, heightens alertness, boosts mental capacity, burns and metabolizes fats, eliminates fatigue, eases hypertension, alleviates impotency, prevents prostate cancer, improves digestion and can combat depression. This is helpful and can be taken at night by students reviewing for exams or professionals who work at BPO/Call Center industry.

Bee Pollen may be taken before meals to help lose weight, during meals to maintain weight and after meals to gain weight. Just melt 1/2 teaspoon of bee pollen under your tongue 30 minutes before breakfast. You can double this dosage on strenuous or stressful days and prior to athletic activities. It is suggested to drink alkaline water with your daily bee pollen intake.

We brought home their 20gms bottle which is good for 15 days.

If you are a fan or have used honey and/or bee pollen, can you share with us a testimonial how it has benefited you?

  2. PinoyOrganics says:

    We’ve been using Ilog Maria’s Virgin Honey followed by a tsp. of Calamansi syrup for management of cough w/ phlegm. It relaxes us on sleepless nights of coughing and eventually getting rid from cough.I’m so glad to learn that Milea has added honey products,more accessible for us in mla. area.Thanks ms.Edilee Omoyon.More power to you:)

  6. This is a very inspiring piece of article. Thanks so much for featuring Bee Farming and the benefits of honey bee products. I’ll just have to turn my 12 hectare coconut plantation in Baroy, Lanao del Norte into a Bee Farm and Orchard, too. Oh, by the way, I didn’t catch up with your pricelist.

  13. jane castaneda says:

    is milea’s honey unprocessed? i want to buy some but i don’t know where i can buy unheated/unprocessed honey here in manila.

  14. jane castaneda says:

    is your honey unprocessed or unheated? i just want to know because it will be used for skin treatment of my sister. if it is heated already or there is something added, the honey treatment will not be effective. if sugar is added, her skin will be more damage because sugar can trigger her seb derm.

  15. Edilee says:

    Hello Jane,
    Our honey is pure, unprocessed and unheated. It underwent filtration process just to remove the particles but not ultra filtered.
    Thanks.
