Like many others I also have a history with bees and honey.
Until the age of seven I lived in a house by a lake which had two bee hives in its garden, the sole purpose being, able to get fresh honey from our bees that collected pollen from the diverse vegetation around the beautiful area on the outskirts of a big city. I remember being chased and stung by the bees many times when some naughty kids irritated them by sticking branches into their peaceful hives. Until the day we moved away to an other place I had developed the idea that everyone around the world were beekeeping in their gardens for their requirements. It came as a shock when we moved to the heart of the city where gardens were scarce and had to pay for honey contained in glass jars on market shelves. Not being able to smell the incredible frangrance of fresh honey before eating it was odd for a very long time.
I use it for everything edible and more...good for coughs,..makes a nice beauty mask for skin care,..is an anti-oxidant,...relaxes the body after a hard day's work...
Love it, it's a wonder in itself!
