Sidr honey is a monofloral single-origin honey that originates from the nectar of the Sidr (also known as Beri or Jujube) trees. A thick honey with a rich, lavish and buttery-sweet taste, it has a golden colour which darkens and turns reddish over time. When fresh, the honey has the same fragrance as the blooming Sidr flower!
It’s amongst the most sought-after varieties of honey in the world for its exquisite taste and cure-all health benefits - it is known to have antibacterial, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties, and research shows that Sidr honey is very similar to Manuka honey in terms of anti-microbial activity.
Known for its aphrodisiac properties in the Middle East, a cure for insomnia in China, and as an offering to Lord Shiva in India (signifying rejuvenation and vitality), Sidr honey is the perfect addition to your wellness routine.
In Ayurveda, honey is considered to be a “yogavahi” or bio-enhancer. When taken with any food or medication it amplifies its quality and allows all its goodness – to penetrate deeply into the body.
All kinds of honey will naturally crystallize over time specifically at a lower ambient temperature.
Relieves Throat, Cough & Flu Symptoms
Sidr honey has impressive antibacterial activity, even when used in a minimal amount. When mixed with turmeric or cinnamon powder, it helps alleviate cough, cold, sinusitis, sinus pressure, etc.
Rich in potent antioxidants, Sidr honey helps fights free radicals in cells, which trigger diseases like cancer, influenza, and arthritis. The phenolic compounds (flavonoids) contained within it extend the antioxidant power.
Sidr honey dramatically benefits your skin. From treating cystic acne to fading scars, it can be applied topically (in combination with other ingredients) to reverse the process of ageing, giving your younger, blemish-free and glowing skin.
Sidr tree nectar is potent for weight loss. Honey is high in calories but has zero fats and low in sugar – a great alternative for those who want sweetness, but want to gain some pounds a week.
Ulcers And Digestive Health
Another benefit of Sidr honey is that it acts as a digestive aid and gut healer. It prevents acid reflux, soothes stomach and bowel lesions in people suffering from Crohn's Disease and Irritable Bowel Syndrome. It also protects and heals ulcers naturally, and helps you avoid post-meal discomfort from gastrointestinal disorders.
Sidr honey lowers bad cholesterol levels in the blood. It results in decreased fat accumulation in the heart vessels thereby preventing the occurrence of heart attacks. It also improves blood circulation and helps reduce fatigue and loss of breath.
Sidr honey has impressive antibacterial activity even when used sparingly - especially when mixed with cinnamon. It can be used in the treatment of different kinds of cancer, including pancreatic, brain, breast and liver cancer.
Sidr honey, when mixed with olive oil, carrot seeds, ginseng or cumin it acts as a potent aphrodisiac for natural erection in men – better than the popular OTC medications available in the market and without the side effects! You can also blend Sidr honey with nuts like peanuts, cashews, and almonds for the same effect.

Sidr honey is known for its antibacterial,antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and anti-viral properties, making it an ideal remedy for a host of health issues ranging from weight management to skincare and cancer treatment. The Sidr berries are known to be extremely nutritious, and this is passed down to the honey as well, giving your a product that is nutritionally superior to commercial honey.
How do I know if the honey is pure?
The best way to determine the purity of Sidr honey is through a water test. Simply pour some of the honey in a glass of water. If it is impure/artificial, the liquid will dissolve in water. If it settles down at the bottom of the glass, it is pure.
Why is Sidr honey so expensive?
At Eiwa we use a cold-extraction method, without adding any heat (heat kills the enzymes, and thus, the goodness of the honey). Using our cold extraction process, consumers are ensured of raw honey that is of much higher quality than the processed, treated and de-natured varieties that have flooded the market today. The tree and vegetation it grows in is found in very few areas of India, primarily in Rajasthan.

Sidr honey is derived from the Sidr tree (which is found in the Middle East, India, Pakistan, Ethiopia, Egypt, Libya and Sudan) while Manuka honey is derived from the Manuka shrub, native only to New Zealand.

Sidr, on the other hand, is a tree where every component - from the leaves to the bark to the berries - is beneficial. This high nutritional and medicinal value is found in the honey as well.
