It’s
Not Just Great Tasting

Perhaps your
parents failed to mention it when they discussed the birds and the
bees with you. But, honey has a long history of healing, too.

Really, it’s
been used for centuries for its healing properties, as well as its
sweetness. People use it to bake with. It requires you to use less
heat. Its tasty flavor is one reason many people prefer it over
table sugar. Besides that, honey is much sweeter than regular table
sugar and better for you.

It’s best
if you buy locally grown organic raw honey whenever you can. Locally
grown because it’s produced by bees which are from the environment
in which you live. It is always best to grow or consume foods from
the area in which you live as they contain the immune stimulating
properties needed for your body to adapt to its environment. Fresh
raw honey will also be tastier, and more potent. And, when you buy
from local independent farmers you help keep them in business, which
is good for your economy.
