How to Make Blue Honey

Introduction

I love bees. They're cute, they make honey and wax, and they're just generally great companions on my adventures throughout the Minecraft world. If you want to enter into the exciting world of beekeeping but don't have much experience with hives or agriculture, here's how to get started making blue honey!

Blue Honey is a special item in Minecraft with potentially powerful effects.

Blue honey is a special item in Minecraft that can be used to craft blue honeycomb, which is edible and can be used as a potion. It's created by using the bucket on an apiary, which will also produce regular, white honey if you don't have any bottles to collect it in.

When you eat blue honeycomb, it will give you the Well Fed buff for 5 minutes, making all food items restore 2 more hunger points than normal (this effect stacks with other buffs). This means that eating 16 pieces of cooked meat at full health won't fill up your hunger bar anymore!

Place the hive wherever you want to make blue honey, at least 15 blocks away from other hives.

Place the hive wherever you want to make blue honey, at least 15 blocks away from other hives. It's important that the space is safe, as well as having enough room for bees to fly around. The second you place it in your world and open it up, hundreds of bees will flood out and attack anything nearby—including you! If there's no one around who can harm them (like animals or other players), then they'll just continue on with their business, making sweet honey until all of their resources are exhausted. Once this happens, they'll need more!

Take one wheat and one flower, then use them on the hive.

To bring about a world of blue honey, you will need to create a beehive. This can be done by combining one wheat and one flower in the crafting table. After that, take the resulting item (a beehive) and place it somewhere in the sky so that other hives don't get in its way.

You'll also want to plan out how many hives you'd like to have at this stage; while five is not mandatory, it's probably best if you do so before going any further with your mission because once they're built it's hard to move them around without destroying them first (unless they're 15 blocks away from each other).

Wait until the beehive has honey dripping from it, which will take two to five in-game days.

You will know that there's blue honey in your beehive when it becomes covered with a thick, gooey substance. This usually takes two to five in-game days, but it can take up to seven days if you don't check on your hive every day.

Once you have blue honey dripping from the beehive, collect some of it using a bucket or bottle. You can also use a crafting table to make buckets of blue honey or bottles of blue honey at this point—just craft them as normal and place them into the crafting grid for an instant creation!

Use an axe or other tool to break the hive and collect the blue honey. You'll get at least one bucket of blue honey and possibly some wax comb as well.

You can use an axe or other tool to break the hive and collect the blue honey. You'll get at least one bucket of blue honey and possibly some wax comb as well. If you want more honey, you can use an axe again; if you don't want the wax comb, you can collect it in a bucket instead.

Use a bowl on the bucket to collect the honeycomb from it. The raw blue honeycomb is edible, but if you cook it in a furnace you'll get blue honeycomb that's more likely to give positive effects when used for potions. Note that you may need to wait for the furnace to cool down first if it was recently used for cooking other items.

You can eat the raw honeycomb, but it's more likely to give positive effects when used for potions if you cook it in a furnace first.

Drink your blue honey by using it on yourself for up to three minutes of night vision and jump boost every time, or by crafting it into bottles that can be consumed anywhere.

  • Drink your blue honey by using it on yourself for up to three minutes of night vision and jump boost every time, or by crafting it into bottles that can be consumed anywhere.

  • Use blue honey for potions and food. Anywhere that you would normally use a bottle of water or potions, you can instead use a bottle of blue honey.

  • Use blue honey as fuel in furnaces, machines, and vehicles. You'll need one bucket of it per unit of fuel required (e.g., one bucket will power a furnace with 50 units).

It's easy to make great stuff with bees, even when you're far from home!

As you've probably read in our previous article, bees are a great source of honey. The sweet, golden liquid is used to make other things like potions and special food items. Blue honey is particularly rare and valuable, so why not try making some yourself? You can do this at home or even while you're on the go!

It's easy to get started—all you need are some basic ingredients:

  • A bee hive (found at local apothecaries)

  • A cauldron (available from most general stores)

  • A wooden spoon (located near the ovens at bakeries)

Conclusion

Now you know how to make blue honey! It's a great way to get night vision and jump boost potions. The recipe requires only four ingredients: beehives (which you can find in the wild), wheat, flowers, and water buckets. Don't forget that all three of these items can be crafted with just one piece of wood each if you have enough resources on hand already.
