As the name itself indicates, this honey comes from nectar gathered by bees from different plants, both cultivated ones and those growing in meadows, forests, lowlands and mountains. It is a light creamy colour, or sometimes pale yellow. It crystallizes quickly, the colour turning to light grey or light brown. It has a characteristic rather strong waxy aroma, dependent on the mixture of nectars brought to the hive. The curative properties of honey depend on the plants the nectar has been collected from, but only the bees know this for sure. Mixed-flower honey is particularly suitable for people with allergies since it contains pollens that act as antigens.
