Honey and Bees

Yesterday the bee lady came to our park to speak. Her company owns 5000 hives and travels the country pollinating crops, literally from CA to Maine to Florida. The bee lady is 60 yet has the skin of a youngster and spoke of the health benefits of bee 'stuff' going well beyond the relatively known benefits of honey.

We always visit her store here in Wauchula, always picking up a case of Orange Blossum honey for our trip to Newfoundland, small gifts for new people we meet.

One of the best parts of life is all there is to learn, and RVing continues to expose me to 'new'.

Hoping to learn what others know about bees.

Honey & oil works as a face wash, too!

Hi. Love this post and the reminder about how important bees are to us. I've been mixing up 1 teaspoon of raw honey and 1 teaspoon of organic extra virgin olive oil (or grape seed oil) to use as a cleanser, and it's the best. It also saves space, since it's already in the pantry.

My dad had hives, while he was living. In fact, I still have a quart of honey, I can not bring myself to open. Surprisingly, it has not yet crystalized. He has been gone for 20 years.


I try to make honey, my go to sweetener.

Honey is the only food source that will never go bad- ever. Many ancient jars found that are thousands of years old. Just put the crystalized honey in warm water and good as new.

We keep a stash of food at our homes and honey is part of the supply,

I am not a prepper (yet) but I do have about 3 quarts that I have purchased of raw honey from street stands of farmers and bee keepers and I am just storing it for future use.

I only buy raw honey.

Ginny and I took Chinese cooking lessons from a lady who had moved here from Formosa. After moving here she was allergic to all kinds of pollen. She went to a doctor and took a large series of shots. They worked but after a year the symptoms were back. A friend said don't go to a doctor, consume local honey instead. Eating local honey daily solved the problem.

In her store she sells Lo-cal honey. My son asked, Dad where do you get lo(w) cal(oric) honey?

For longer food storage, and less mess, I often use, Cox's raw creamed honey. It is delicious and spreads beautifully. It is especially nice for camping, as long as you don't let it get too warm.

Creamed honey, that is a new one to me so I had to go to their website and read how they make it.

My wife lately buys raw honey produced locally, because she has had some allergies and she read that eating local honey can help the body reduce its allergic response to the local allergens. Like that lady from Formosa, my wife thinks it is working for her, too.
