Some honey bee facts really deserve to be shared after so many healing and health promoting opportunities for us humans, start with this little busy creature.
Honeybees are the only insects that produce food for humans.
It has been discovered that this unique type of honey contains extraordinary healing properties that are capable of healing a wide spectrum of health conditions.
Such as ulcers, skin wounds, acid reflux, gastritis, strep throat, acne, burns, eczema, ringworm, staph infection etc.
The bees gather the nectar from a floral shrub, Manuka (indigenous to New Zealand)
It is also called Tea tree and when it is next flowering I will take some photos of it - we have some shrubs growing on our property.
So if you remember this if you ever have a skin wound that is not healing, please give this a try.
When my Mother broke her hip last year, it was not healing very well with antibiotics and the Doctor suggested trying the Manuka honey and within the week it had healed up well.
My Grandfather and an Uncle used to be beekeepers (Apaiarist) and we used to love watching them go out with all the protective gear on, so they would not get stung.
They would smoke the bees out, to enable them to harvest the honeycomb, from the hive.
Don't you love the amazing structure of the honeycomb ~ all those hexagonal cells that the bees fill with honey. I do enjoy honey on a slice of toast some mornings, for breakfast.
Do you like honey?
Have a great week
