Honey Health Benefits

Honey is nature’s remedy that has been used for thousands of years as a tasty food and also in traditional medicine.  Nowadays honey is becoming more and more important, because unlike antibiotics it has no known resistance.

Providing a variety of vitamins, minerals, trace elements and enzymes, honey helps to nourish the skin giving it a natural glow. Active honey contains anti-bacterial qualities which could help heal the skin, making it useful for spots and blemishes.
