While many people know about honey being a healthy ingredient, the most amazing facts are mostly overlooked. Weâ€™re here to change that. Scroll through this list and be amazed at how much honey can do for you.
Honey was used as a prescribed medicine for treatments many years ago. It can still be used for seasonal allergies, stomach ulcers, infection and burns. The catch is that the honey you use must be from the same area that you live in order to be useful.
HONEY WILL NEVER ROT
You can keep honey in storage forever. Seriously, you can keep it for years and still eat it! The honey that was found in King Tut’s tomb was still good to eat and tasted just fine!
HONEY HAS MANY FLAVOURS
A bee gathers pollen from a number of different flowers. The kind of flower it uses determines the flavor and color honey will have. For example honey made from the pollen gathered from a rose will taste different from honey made with the pollen of wild flowers.
HONEY CURES ACNE
Organic honey is a remedy for acne. None of those expensive acne creams or cleansers can compare to the natural honey mask.
HONEY MAKES YOU LOOK YOUNGER
Do you have dry, flaky skin, a few wrinkles or crows eye? Then honey is for you. Just a few minutes of a honey face wash every day and voila! Clean, smooth skin.
HONEY IS RELAXING
According to a study taking a spoon of honey before sleeping helps anybody who suffers from anxiety, nervousness, or insomnia. It relaxes and aids in sleeping.
The average life of a worker bee is for a mere five to six weeks. During this time, the honey it produces is around a twelfth of a teaspoon of honey.
Raw honey contains all the pollen, enzymes and other micro-nutrients that are generally filtered out or destroyed by heat when the honey is processed.
