Miel de avellano: honey from the wild hazelnut tree (Gevuina avellana) found from the Coquimbo region to the Aysén region. The golden honey is creamy and rich in Vitamin A, and is said to contain many of the health properties of hazelnuts, especially for the skin.
Miel de quillay: a dark amber honey from the Quillay (Quillaja saponaria), a fragrant native tree. Quillay honey is often recommended for allergies and digestive problems, and is high in antioxidants.
Addicionally we can often sell bags of pollen, tiny jars of royal jelly, and liquid dropper bottles of propolis.
Propolis, called propóleo in Spanish, is commonly sold in small bottles and recommended to boost the immune system. A recent study by Chilean professors at the Catolic University and the La Frontera University in Temuco found that Chilean propolis may be an effective treatment for cavities, or caries.
