A LITTLE MORE ABOUT HONEY:
Antioxidants in honey play an important part in eliminating harmful free radicals in the human body, which contribute to many serious diseases.
Honey that heals, inhibiting the growth of certain bacteria, yeast and moulds. It can also prevent scarring. On minor skin injuries, honey’s natural ability to draw moisture from the air promotes healing.

Honey has been found to be one of the most effective form of carbohydrate to ingest prior to exercise since it is easily digested and released into the body. Honey also helps the muscles recuperate after a workout.
Beauty? The reigning queens of beauty have used honey in their hair and skin care regimes for centuries. Honey needs no preservatives additives, processing or refining. It has a natural ability to attract and retain moisture. Its mild nature makes it suitable for sensitive skin and baby products.
Bees and the environment:
Pollination is a vital process in flowering plant reproduction, creating the fruits and vegetables that we all love to eat. Pollination can be done by the wind, birds, mammals and insects but honey bees pollinate on a commercial scale, vital not only for the food we eat directly but also for foraging crops used to feed livestock, many other animals in the food chain and to maintain the genetic diversity of flowering plants.
