Active Honey

About Us

At Mt Caroline Active Honey we are passionate about producing bio- active honey from nectar derived from Leptospermum Nitens trees. The beauty of these trees is that they are native and unique to parts of the Central Wheatbelt of Western Australia and are from the same species as the more widely known Manuka trees (Leptospermum Scoparium) that underpin the New Zealand Manuka active honey industry. 


Clusters of naturally occurring trees (or wildstands) of Leptospermum Nitens are currently the main source of our honey. The activity level of our honey varies, but batches are tested at MGO values of 70 or above. Research into Australian Leptospermum varieties took off about ten years ago. Studies suggest that the nectar from the Nitens variety typically contains 3 to 4 times higher concentrations of DHA than Manuka nectar. DHA (Dihydroxyacetone) is a precursor of the bioactive component found in honey, MGO (Methylglyoxal). 


We are working towards consistently producing large quantities of high grade active honey from planted Nitens trees in a natural environment with optimum growing conditions. For the last few years we have been trialing planting methods and combinations of Leptospermum Nitens and other native trees to grow strong and healthy trees and avoid monoflora. By having selected native tree variaties that flower outside of the season of the Nitens we aim to also produce unique table honeys throughout the year.
