This wiki has been updated 15 times since it was first published in May of 2018. Honey serves both as a natural sweetener in foods and drinks and as an ingredient in many homemade remedies. Unfortunately though, some harvesters employ unscrupulous practices, such as the use of chemicals and unethical treatment of bees. Conscientious consumers will appreciate the organic brands on this list, all of which never use pesticides and support responsible harvesting methods. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best organic honey on Amazon.

Special Honors

Tea Forte Organic Raw Variety Set Brazilian If you'd like to sample several types of honey that can go well on baked goods, in beverages, and even in dressings and roasts, the Tea Forte Organic Raw Variety Set Brazilian is a good choice. It has Acacia, Pink Pepper, Quince, and Wild Flower honey. All are single-origin and beautifully packaged, and boast very unique flavor profiles. teaforte.com

Essential Wholesale And Labs Organic Honey If you need a big batch of natural sweetener to make tons of baked goods, smoothies, and more, this wholesale option is a good pick. It's available in quantities ranging from one to 35 pounds, has a lovely golden color, and a thick texture. In addition to food use, it's also good for making moisturizers and hair products. essentialwholesale.com

Editor's Notes

April 29, 2020:

Determining the best honey for your needs will greatly depend on what you plan on using it for. Those looking for classic honey that goes well in tea and soothes the throat might like Wholesome Raw Unsweetened or Nature's Nate Raw & Unfiltered, both of which have easy-squeeze bottles and consistencies that melt easily into hot water. That being said, Liquid Gold Delicious was a bit too syrupy, so it had to go.

We wanted to present some unexpected flavor options for those looking to experiment in the kitchen, so we like Greenbow Cinnamon, Pelindaba Lavender Gourmet, and Meluka Hemp Seed, each of which has the addition of the special ingredient listed in their names. HoneyTree's Tropical lost its place as some found the flavor to be a bit too intense. Meanwhile, Bee Harmony Raw lost its spot too because its flavor is so mild that it's barely there.

We decided to remove Bee Seasonal Gift Set to make room for Bee Seasonal Brazilian Pink Pepper Blossom because we felt the latter had a more interesting flavor profile. Also, Big Island Bees Wilelaiki would make a good gift option, as its quite gourmet, and we didn't see the need to recommend both.
