WHO IS MELAMPOUS

MELAMPOUS came from Melampous or Melabodas who was the first known doctor, hieler priest as well as a great clair voyant according to Greek mythology. He used honey as a medicine because he had discovered the rich health benefits and its healing features.

Starting from the Caves of Lakes where he cured the daughters of King Tirynthas Proitos using his healing skills, is said to have passed by Lousoi Kalavryta where our beekeeping love story for honey starts.

The origins of Greek beekeeping is lost in the distant past of the legendary era. Aristaios is the oldest person appearing in the field of beekeeping. When he was born, Hermes gave him to Gaia and Hours to bring him up. Those were the ones who dripped nectar and ambrosia to his lips so as to make him immortal.

HONEY IS...

The honey is an entirely natural product, produced by bees, starting from editing, the nectar of flowers or secretions of other parts of plants, and all of these are converted into a powerful source of energy and life.

It is well known that honey attribute divine features since antiquity as they couldn’t explain its highly nutritional value through logic.
