There is nothing in the world much like Honey, for thousands of years Honey has been used in all parts of the world and in many different cultures. Harvesting honey was an ancient activity and humans began collecting honey almost 8,000 years ago! The Ancient Egyptians actually used Honey as part of their currency and as gifts to their Gods. In China, the art of beekeeping appears to have been in existence beyond the reach of memory and not traceable to its origin. All in all honey has been around long before our time and has been used in many different ways from ingesting it to medicinal purposes. I believe that Honey is a great natural remedy and it has the ability to soothe sore throats, treat cuts and burns, boost your energy and immune system, treat allergies, help arthritis, and even moisturize your skin. There are so many other purposes, but these are the most common uses of Honey other than eating and/or cooking with it. I am in constant awe of what Honey can do for people and also shocked that few use this liquid gold in their everyday life. Why do you think this versatile food product has been used for thousands of years!?
