Honey – Much more than just a sweetener!
GRASONVILLE, MD – Thursday morning – Much more than just a sweetener, honey is produced by honey bees and is derived from the nectar of flowers. Honey is a mixture of sugars and other compounds – mainly fructose and glucose. Honey has been used medicinally for at least 2,700 years. Honey is very antiseptic and antibacterial. Honey treats a variety of ailments and is healing to the skin, great for wound healing, inhibits growth of fungi and bacteria, aids digestion, is calming, dissolves mucus, is high in potassium, soothes raw tissues and helps the body retain calcium. Honey also helps balance acid accumulations in the body, and is nourishing with Vitamins B12, B6, iron, manganese and amino acids. Honey is great for your skin. You won’t believe how great your skin feels if you gently rub honey onto your face and then rinse it off. Amazing for the skin. Honey is good in a gargle to soothe a sore throat. Honey and lemon juice is good for coughs and good in some arthritic conditions. You can also smear honey on ringworm or athletes foot 2 – 3 times a day to heal. Honey is so much more than just sweet!
