Honey is mother nature’s most versatile food. Honey has been around for centuries, used as a food, as medicine, and as skin care! It has super health powers due to the multitude of nutrients, carbohydrates, minerals, vitamins and amino acids. It’s anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and contains no fat, cholesterol, or sodium. Make sure that you purchase raw or wild honey, as it is unprocessed and the enzymes are preserved.
Manuka honey is a monofloral honey that comes from Australia and New Zealand. It is said to be the tastiest natural medicine. It aids in fighting infection, tissue healing, reducing inflammation, and even helps you sleep.
Honey is also great for moisturizing your skin! It also balances your ph and helps with acne. Mix it with full fat yogurt and use it as a face mask ( keep it on for 15 minutes or so). Your dogs will probably lick your face but it is good for them as well. You can wash your face with it ( it does sting if it gets in your eyes), and you can mix it with olive oil for a great hair conditioner. Mix it wth sea salt, sugar or oats for a scrub. It rinses off a lot easier than you think it will, and your skin will feel noticeably softer.
Bee pollen is made from honeybees, and is the food for the young bee. It is a complete food for humans and contains nearly all the nutrients required by humans. I add a tablespoon to my smoothie every morning. Bee pollen had me once I saw it helps with premature aging.. but it does lots of other good things as well!
And last but not least.. a recipe! I keep a honey, lemon, ginger mixture in the refrigerator at all times. Sometimes I just eat it by the spoon, and sometimes I make a tea with it ( or add it to tea). I slice up one lemon, grate about a inch piece of ginger, and add about 1/2 a cup of honey to a jar. I muddle it all together, and you have a delicious mixture that you will want a spoonful of every time you open the refrigerator door. The lemon has tons of vitamin c, ginger is one of the healthiest spices on the planet , and the honey.. well.. you know by now how good it is for you.
Bee good.. Have a great day.
