    Honey in Home Remedies

    Ways to use honey in home remedies




    Sometimes called the nectar of the gods, honey has been a staple in the human diet for thousands of years.

    Home made honey?

    Summer:


    Winter:




    Wild flower meadows:







    The honey will differ (color and taste) based on which wild flowers bees simply will use:




    We have to accept that, but in any cases I think those (home made) products are much better than anything big industry companies produce. Much more ''clean'' too .... for sure.

    Bees also take sweet liquids emitted from trees and other plants and insects , instead of nectars .

    Therefore "Woodhoney" exist .

    Of course home-made honey is the best! I mean unprocessed one, and when bees were not treated with antibiotics or feed with sugar, but only with honey. I usually only buy honey from sources I am sure they are good, I rarely buy honey from supermarkets...

    Forest honey is one of my favourites! It also has more minerals, less pollen (so it's better for those with pollen allergies) and some other specific properties...

    Each type of honey has its specific properties... I didn't find at a quick search anything in English about that, but I know it for sure... and also the pollen is fantastic (unless you're allergic to it).

    I also ate raspberry honey and I really enjoyed it!

    Acacia honey is also great, also one of my favourites!

    I ate really good raw natural honey in Norway, Romania and Germany... In Germany I even found really good honey in supermarkets, too, and I loved it!

    Although the word "Commando" was wrongly used to describe all Boer soldiers, a commando was a unit formed from a particular district. None of the units was organized in regular companies, battalions or squadrons. The Boer commandos were individualists who were difficult to control, resented formal discipline or orders, and earned a British jibe that"every Boer was his own general".
