  1. When using honey for the many health benefits it is important to use raw unpasteurized honey. if your using it to help allergies make sure its local.

  2. Love honey! I lived in New Zealand for 8 years and you are correct – Manuka Honey was used in so much including skincare products and throat and cold lozenges.
