Long live Nature: the Magic Mix
Nature..it is one of the things I love so much. I admire so much. In Israel is a lot of nature, incredible beautiful and special. Birds I have never seen before, plants you rarely see, trees…but there are also lots of bee farms. And bee farms give honey. And honey, honey is magical. Do you know honey, the real one, organic, natural and not from a factory, brings us a lot! So let’s see what our friend Brittanica says about honey:
Honey, sweet, viscous liquid food, dark golden in colour, produced in the honey sacs of various bees from the nectar of flowers. Flavour and colour are determined by the flowers from which the nectar is gathered. Some of the most commercially desirable honeys are produced from clover by the domestic honeybee. Honey contains about 18 percent water, is water soluble, and may granulate between 50 and 65 °F (10 and 18 °C). Somewhat acid, it has mild antiseptic properties and has been used in the treatment of burns and lacerations. One of the most easily assimilated foods, it is widely used in baked goods, candies, prepared fruits, cereals, and medicines.
How it’s made?
Everybody is familiar with honey in their tea, a honey candy when your throat hurts. But what makes honey so super special?
How do the bees make honey? The bees collect a nectar by sucking flowers with their tongues. Then they store it in their honey stomach, not their food stomach.
When they are full, they go back to their hive. When they arrive there they pass it on through their mouths to other bees, the workers, who chew it for about half an hour. It goes from bee to bee, until it finally turns into honey. The bees store it in honeycomb cells, which are like little cells made of wax. The honey is still a bit wet, so they dry it with their wings to make it really dry and sticky. At the end of their labour, they seal the little cell with a wax to keep it clean.
It is a lot of work for the bees to make honey. They only make a little bit and all the little bits of about eight bees lives is enough to make a full teaspoon.
So now we understand why honey, the real thing, can be expensive. That is usually the reason for people to imitate a product. Always check if you have real honey or honey made in a factory.
So what do you need to know and what can honey do for you? Honey is also known as a natural antibiotic. Honey is good for your skin: when you have a scratch, a wound: use honey for it. Honey is great for your immune system, for a sore throat, for your hair: give it a honey mask. Honey calms you down. Honey is great for your stomach and intestines. Did you know that honey can help you to get lose a lot of hay fever and honey can help strengthen your heart?
