Health Benefits of Organic Honey

on November 13, 2019

What are the benefits of honey?

My love affair with organic honey started about 5 years ago when a friend of mine set up her own hive. I have always enjoyed the taste of honey, but other than putting it on toast or in tea, I hadn’t explored other uses.

On being gifted a pot of organic honey from my friend’s first harvest, I soon began to use it for all sorts of things.

Soon after receiving my first jar, my young daughter had a bout of styes, we tried everything but they kept returning. In the end, I researched home remedies and found honey a top result. Rather warily, I placed some warmed organic honey on my daughter’s eyelid, she blinked it into her eye and two hours later all styes were gone! Now, anytime anyone in our house gets an eye infection, out comes the
honey and away goes the problem.

We also use honey for sore throats, but rather than put it in tea or with lemon, we just slowly lick a spoonful of organic honey. The soothing qualities are instant and effective.

Organic honey for me is now my first go-to with many problems:

  • Spots: a dab of honey before bed.
  • Warts: a dab of honey and cover with a plaster.
  • Eczema: warmed honey placed on before a bath or shower relieve itching.
  • Sores and cuts: dab organic honey on to help heal.
  • Foot issues: a dab of organic honey fights fungal infections.

organic honey is amazing:

  • it is natural,
  • contains many antioxidants,
  • is an anti-inflammatory,
  • is antibacterial,
  • is anti-fungal
  • is a potent prebiotic.
  • it also tastes amazing.

Go and try it for yourself, keep one jar in your cupboard for pleasure and another in your bathroom for purpose.
