Blue honey, or how to boost your resilience! And stay away from cancer!
I personally don’t associate blue with resilience. With sadness, depression, rainy days, loneliness… However, this is not the case with this type of honey.
It is blue, indeed, but not because it is made from blue flowers. A team of scientists came up with a formula that boosts body resilience, among other benefits brought by simple honey. The color is not obtained from additives, but from the combination of added natural ingredients. Mainly from spirulina extract and chamomile essential oil, which are naturally blue.
Blue Chamomile essential oil has a high content of azulene, the active organic compound of chamomile, which bears a blue color. Azulene has very potent anti-inflammatory, skin healing properties. It also has antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiseptic properties.

What is Frankincense tree (Boswellia serrata) extract good for?
It regulates emotional moods. A 2008 study conducted by Arieh Moussaieff, showed that incensole acetate, a Boswellia resin constituent, is a potent TRPV3 agonist that causes anxiolytic-like and antidepressive-like behavioral effects in wild-type (WT) mice with concomitant changes in c-Fos activation in the brain. In English this means it helps with depression and anxiousness.
(I wonder who told the Buddhist monks or Christian priests to burn frankincense in their religious temples?)
How does spirulina affect the cells?
Yufeng Liu and his colleagues showed in a study from 2000, published on Journal of Applied Phycology, that phycocyanin from Spirulina platensis has an inhibitory effect on the leukemic cells K562. The study explained that “The cytotoxicity exhibited by Spirulina extract to cancer cell lines might be due to the presence of phytopigments (carotenoids, chlorophyll, phycocyanin) as well as polysaccharides. … Crude extracts of Spirulina can be used as a source to develop anticancer drugs.”
What is royal jelly?
The white liquid that feeds the queen, the magic food that turns a regular honeybee into a queen, has therapeutic properties well-known by all apitherapists and naturopaths. What is royal jelly good for?
The list is really long: diabetes, high blood pressure & cholesterol, fertility, breast cancer, flue (Covid included) and helps with stem cells. That’s the reason they added it in the blue honey. Because it keeps stem cells in their embryonic, pluripotent state. (see Royal Jelly health benefits)

Astragalus polysaccharide (APS), the primary active component extracted from a traditional Chinese medicinal herb Astragalus membranaceus, has been proved to exert a marked inhibitory effect on a number of types of human solid tumors. A study from 2016 conducted by WEN-HAI HUANG and colleagues from China, showed that astragalus extracts can be used in the therapy of Hepatocellular carcinoma.

Clary sage essential oil has a broad spectrum of effects: analgesic, antiinflammatory, antioxidant, antifungal, and antibacterial. It also has a cytotoxic effect as it causes plasma membrane perturbations which leads to cell apoptosis process. (study “Effects of clary sage oil and its main components, linalool and linalyl acetate, on the plasma membrane of Candida albicans: an in vivo EPR study”, by Ágnes Blaskó et al., 2017)
Common Sage essential oil was called “the sacred plant”!
The common sage is used in folk medicine all around the world to treat microbial infections, cancer, malaria, inflammation and to disinfect homes after sickness (Kamatou et al., 2008).

The study “Chemical composition and anticancer activity of essential oils of Mediterranean sage (Salvia officinalis L.) grown in different environmental conditions” from 2013 conducted by Alessandra Russo from University of Catania, Italy, evaluated the growth-inhibitory and proapoptotic effects of the eighteen sage essential oils in three human melanoma cell lines, A375, M14, and A2058.
