Honey bees collect nectar from both wild and good flowers. So the honey that we get from the nectar of wildflowers is known as wild honey. Usually, honey is collected from the honeycomb, processed, packed, and then sent to trade. But some traders collect honey directly from the honeycomb and sell it. Here, there are no preservatives used, and natural wild honey is sold to the customer. The honey is only filtered so that if any dust particles are there, they can be removed. The texture of this honey is opaque because it contains some extra or unwanted elements. However, those extra and unwanted elements are not harmful for consumption.
