Honey is money
Yes, it comes from a bee’s bee-hind, so to speak, but it’s delish and has many good properties and uses.
First, it has antiseptic properties—you can make a bandage with honey inside for infections. They even recommended it when my kid had MRSA. Try to get Manuka UMF honey for this.
It’s pure energy—yes, a carb, but one spoonful can help you run faster and endure. It’s absorbed fast!
Put it on toast or in tea for a morning jumpstart.
It’s full of antioxidants—put some in water with lemon and drink each day. It may also have anti-cancer properties.
Hangover? Combine honey, orange juice and yogurt to chase the yuks.
It’s also good for sore throats.
Honey and vinegar are good for arthritis.
Honey and cinnamon—can stop hair loss and bad breath.
You can also make a moisturizing facial mask with it.
Sticky but good for ya.
