While flowers are blooming throughout the warmer seasons of spring and summer, one can’t help but notice bees buzzing from flower to flower.
Some may see bees as a cause to their allergies, but others think of honey when they see bees.
Everyone can enjoy the sweetness of honey in a variety of ways. Spread it on toast, add it to your tea or drizzle it over fruit for a healthy and tasty dessert. Besides tasting delicious, honey also has healing and therapeutic properties.
When suffering from a cough, add honey to a beverage or food to help soothe it. Researchers discovered that when taken before you go to sleep, honey can be better than medicine in relieving a nighttime cough for children older than one.
Honey has well-known antimicrobial properties and when applied topically to wounds, may help speed along recovery. In the April 2012 International Wound Journal, researchers found that manuka honey and Medihoney greatly helped with wound cleanliness, pain, and overall healing.
