Fireweed is usually one of the first plants to grow and bloom on land devastated by forest fire. In Canada, it is frequently found in the Rockies in Alberta and British Columbia.
First Nations used fireweed externally for burns and other skin conditions, and drank it as a tea for gastro-intestinal and bronchial problems. Many early settlers from Europe already used native European Epilobium species for similar purposes and so quickly accepted the North American plant.
Fireweed has been found to contain several chemical compounds with anti-inflammatory and/or antibacterial properties.
The Fireweed Honey we offer is brought in from BC and has won worldwide acclaim for quality, taste and colour. We sell it in 3 sizes - 250g, 500g, and 1Kg jars.
