The Highly Revered
Sidr Honey

To appreciate this highly esteemed honey, one has to understand the story behind its tree.

The Sidr tree, (also known as Lote tree, Christ's Thorn, Jujube or Nabkh tree) is an ancient tree. The Jujube fruit was the first thing Prophet Adam ate when he was made to descend to earth. The tree was used during the time of King Solomon and the Pharaohs to build palaces and temples.

This highly resilient tree is also sacred as it is mentioned four times in the Qur'an. In Sura Saba, it is mentioned as an earth tree while in other Suras, it is mentioned as a paradise tree (Sidrat al-Muntaha). Allah has mentioned this tree to emphasize its beauty, strength and grandeur (Saba 15,16; Waqia 27-33; Najm 7-18).

It is a sturdy and deep-rooted tree which has withstood the devastating floods of Eram at Ma'arib with two other trees: the Tamarisk and the Mustard Tree. (Saba 15,16).

All of its parts have medicinal values. Its leaves are used as a herbal shampoo, to treat dandruff, head lice, swollen eyes, abscesses, furuncles and counter obesity. Mixed with warm water the leaves are used to clean the body since they are a disinfectant and the oil from the resin is deodorant. Its wood ash is used for the treatment of snakebites. Its fruits are found to have a very high energy value. Its seeds are rich in protein; its leaves rich in calcium, iron and magnesium. The root, stem bark are also used in various medicinal preparations. Other known medicinal uses include as a stomachic, an appetizer, an astringent and also as a cough medicine.

Not many are aware that different honeys differ. They differ in their composition, they differ in their nutritional values and they differ in their therapeutic properties.

Research done on different honeys confirmed that floral source, climate when the honey is being harvested and soil composition are all key factors in determining not only its flavor, color or aroma but also its quality and effectiveness for medicinal or health-promoting purposes.

Another important factor affecting a honey's curative qualities is purity. Only crude, unprocessed honey has shown to be effective.

According to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), Yemeni's Sidr honey is a hundred times more expensive than the other kinds of honey on the global market because of differences in their medicinal and nutritive benefits.

The goodness of raw and unprocessed quality Sidr Honey is indeed unparalleled compared to other honeys. Make a point to give the best to your loved ones with Woodcott® Yemeni Sidr Honey currently available in 250ml and 500ml bottles. For more information, contact us at or visit us @
