Bees are stinging winged insects. They make their homes in mountains, trees and man-made buildings. They feed on nature’s produce and from their bellies excrete sweet and viscous fluid of varying colours. This awesome fluid is what we called HONEY. It has been more than 1400 years ago since the amazing benefits of honey was revealed.
It’s amazing modern science today has also discovered the medicinal uses of honey. These medicinal values and benefits are sources of healing. Its widely usage is a prove that modern man has accepted the magical cure of honey.

You are right, honey is an amazing food. We people have yet no idea how amazing it is. We are only beginning to understand it. 🙂
It’s true Laura. That’s the reason we are here, to share the knowledge and put it to practice. In many cases, health is only valued when it is gone.
I knew honey was nice, but I never knew it was this good… I think it’s time to get my sweet tooth going again.
I do have one question: Does honey help to fight or ease your sinuses? If it does help, how can I use it?
Hi Lee. Here are some explanations to your question.Honey is an overall food supplement.For sinusitis, I would suggest you take 2 tbsp of honey before breakfast, 2 tbsp before lunch and 2tbsp before bedtime.For better result, do not use metal spoon.Please drink plenty of water so that it can excrete waste from your body.Once condition improves you can reduce intake to 1-2 times a day.Include honey as your daily diet.Hope it helps.

YES! Great post, very interesting. I knew honey had benefits but its amazing to what extent. This may sound ignorant but does the type of honey make a difference?
Hi Tony. If you look at the market, there’re just too many types of honey that sometimes it can be quite confusing. I would blame this on the commercial sides of it. After trying some of them, I stick myself to the wild pure honey. The important measure here is to be constant with it. For your info, honey varies in colour due to the bees intake (different flowers). The dark coloured honey contains higher minerals compared to the lighter ones. I hope it gives you some enlightenment. Thank you for your interest. Norleila
Great article on honey. I have used honey as a facial wash too, it is very gentle on the skin and it does a pretty good job cleansing while still retaining moisture. When I have run out of my regular face wash I always opt for honey haha.
True Lyra, honey does wonders! You should try the other way round, to opt for others when your honey run out.
There are many more to be shared and a lot more to be discovered. Be faithful to honey.
Thanks for sharing. Norleila

Hi Norleila- What a wonderful post regarding the health benefits of honey. I use raw wildflower honey almost everyday and just love it! I enjoyed your post and learned some facts I did not know, for instance applying a drop of honey to the eye to help clear infection as well as using honey as a method of preservation for foodstuffs. Well done.

This post about Honey is Really Interesting and Informative.
I’m sure everyone thinks they know all about Honey.
Well, we all know that bees make honey and that it tastes nice and sweet. But after reading this article, I wonder whether people REALLY know anything about Honey – maybe not as much as they think.
We have learned a LOT about Honey that we didn’t know before today.
In fact we didn’t know that honey had all the anti-bacterial, viral and fungal properties, or just how much nutritional vitamins and minerals it has.
The pictures you’ve used in this article have made our mouths water already.
So thank you very much for this very interesting read.

Hi Norleila, first I would like to comment on your name it is very original where does it originate from.
I love your article on Honey I have browsed your site and you have a wealth of information here. I am interested in healthy living and am forever searching and looking for new ways to help me and my family.
You seem to have a lot of experience and I could probably learn a lot from you. I will be coming back now and again to see what new tidbits you have posted. Do you have a new letter I could apply for?
Thanks for the compliment. I owned an arabic name. The direct meaning of “Nor” is “light or enlightenment” and “leila” is “night”. I’m a muslim. Our holy book is the Qur’an. The Qur’an has 114 chapters and in it there is chapter “AnNur(Nor) – The Light” and chapter “AlLayl(Leila) – The Night.”. Well, that’s the story of my name.
