Bee healthy

By Brianna B. Kidd

When it comes to honey, it’s our family bees-iness. Honey is not only a delicious treat on a hot, buttery biscuit, but it has many medicinal properties that have been used since the time of the ancient Egyptians. From beautifying your skin and hair to helping aid your upset stomach, honey has so many beneficial qualities. We at Blue Haven Bee Company, want to bridge the gap and help others understand the importance of our delicious natures nectar. We want to educate the importance of honeybees and all of the many uses for our golden goodness. With the way things are changing in our world, let’s get back to our roots and use more natural solutions to makeover your medicine cabinet.

For starters, one pound of raw honey takes 1,200 honeybees their entire life to make and they have to visit 4.5 million flowers and trees to make it. Can you imagine working your entire life, sun up to sun down to make 1/12 th of a teaspoon of honey? Raw honey can bee hard to come by, so it’s important to find a trusted source for your honey needs. Every varietal of honey at Blue Haven Bee Company is 100 percent straight from our bees, raw and unfiltered. With 75 percent of honey sold not bee-ing pure honey, do you trust your source? Honey is an incredible source for natural energy! Honey is a source of carbohydrates, providing 17 grams per tablespoon, which makes it perfect for working out, sporting events, hiking, or generally any form of exercise. Since honey is such a great form of carbs and sugar, honey will give you’re the fuel to keep on going! My personal favorite way to get more energy is to pump a spoonful of Blue Haven Bee Company Honey! This is great before and post work out too. You will love the energy boost, but guess what? There is no crash!

Honey is wonderful for your skin. It’s naturally anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging. Honey is a natural humectant, which means it draws moisture from the air and drives it in your skin! Beeswax is naturally healing with many wonderful properties. It seals in moisture, protects your skin from environmental threats, is great for dry hair and split ends, and can be used as a form of a natural sunscreen. For these reasons, we use our premium honey and beeswax in our complete line of natural body care. Along with the finest carrier oils, our entire line of body care is a wonderful aid for many skin irritations, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea or anyone wanting a natural clean feeling.

Honey is also great for sore throats and a wonderful cough suppressant. There is nothing like a cup of hot tea and honey to soothe your sore throat and help you through any sickness. Local honey is a great aid for seasonal allergies and threats. Since one pound of honey contains 4.5 million flowers and trees, when you take it daily, you start building a tolerance to what’s blooming outside. We have had so many customers express their gratitude for helping their seasonal allergies each year. Consistency is key! Take a spoonful a day to help keep your allergies away!

So, next time you feel like you’re getting sick, grab your BHBC Honey. Next time you work out, be sure to take a spoonful of pure honey. Start preparing for allergy season with our local honey. Moral of the story, incorporate our honey everyday! You will be surprised at how wonderful natural solutions work and how raw honey is a staple in every home!
