The Golden Gift

This tasty and wholly natural gift is a product of the honeybees’ relationship with nature. Honey is produced by adding natural bee enzyme to treated nectar. Although all honeybees produce honey the same way, the flowers used to make it dictate its color and flavor:  golden (light, flowery), amber (aromatic, mid-tones) and dark (rich, bold).

Fact: The high fructose content of honey gives it a higher sweetening power than sugar.

Fact: 9,000 year-old cave paintings depict the collection of honey from a bee colony.

Fact: Honey is resistant to fermentation and spoilage because Honeybees use their wings to get moisture out before 'capping' with bees wax.

Fact: Honey enhances the immune system, reduces inflammation and stimulates cell growth.

Fact:  Honey is antibacterial, antifungal, natures antibiotic and aids in digestion.  

Fact:  Use on open cuts, sores, burns and wounds for it won't pull off any new skin. 

Before Honeybees 'cap' honey with wax,
they take all the moisture out by fanning with their wings.

This unique step is the reason why honey doesn't ferment -
which is why honey lasts longer than any other food on Earth.

store in a cool dry place.
once opened secure cap tight.

Due to different  types of flowers within a 3 mile radius of the hive, honey is different colors.
 There are 3 grades of honey:  Golden, Amber, Dark - with different nutrients as well.

If you experience allergies,
eating 2 Tablespoons a day of local honey, within 10 miles of where you sleep, will help!
Consistency is the key.
