Switch to healthy honey

Honey is nature's gift to mankind. If you ever get benefits for eating sweet it is with honey only. The yummy fluid is rich in antioxidants and it is a sensible alternative to sugar because of its high medicinal values and varied health benefits. It gives a hybrid taste to your dishes when they are drenched in honey. Honey can be from a single flower source such as lavender, orange flowers, eucalyptus, etc or it may be from variegated blossoms and wildflowers. Honey that is darker is a good indicator for higher antioxidant content. Dark Buckwheat honey has a strong flavor than the light varieties like alfalfa which are nothing more than sweeteners. Honey is soothing for the throat and aids in blood purification. Honey is nourishing when applied on skin and also has healing properties when applied on cuts and wounds. Honey helps to recover from a plethora of diseases like cough, stomach ache, conjunctivitis, insomnia, asthma, tuberculosis, fatigue and constipation. Refrigerating honey is a common mistake that some of us make. We must store honey at room temperature and should avoid exposing it to direct sunlight. It is always a great feeling for me when I paint pieces of bread with honey and shove it down my throat.
