Honey is amazing
! I have 60 pounds of raw, unfiltered honey from my local farmer
sitting on my kitchen chair right now! I never allow us to run out.
Raw honey is full of enzymes, vitamins and other essential nutrients that heated honey does not have. It is also anti-fungal, anti-viral, and anti-bacterial.
Local honey is a wonderful remedy for seasonal allergies. The bees pollinate the local flowers and trees and they you eat the honey. It’s like your own personal allergy shot!
Some of my favorite herbal remedies contain honey. Elderberry elixir is half honey and half brandy with herbs and is a powerful cold remedy.
Honey and lemon tea with a little fresh ginger is wonderful for sore throats, coughs, and digestive upset.
Wounds, burns, and other skin irritations can greatly benefit from raw honey. One of the best varieties of honey for treating burns is the best Manuka honey
. It is highly prized for its healing ability.
Check out this resource from Farmer’s Pal
to find local honey.
I hope you have a great source of local honey because I am giving away a Le Creuset Honey Pot
to put it in!
