July 12th: Honey

Organic honey may taste great, but it also has several health benefits! Here are a few ways you may be able to implement honey into your life:


  1. Boost your immune system. Raw, organic honey is packed with vitamins, minerals, and enzymes that protect your body from bacteria and boost your immune system. Cough and flu symptoms are also kept at bay when treated with honey. To improve your immune system, add 1-2 tablespoons of honey to warm water and drink daily.
  2. Lose weight. Drinking warm water with lemon and honey on an empty stomach, first thing in the morning, is the main component of many detox programs. Doing this on a daily basis is one of the best ways to cleanse the liver, remove toxins, and flush fat from the body.
  3. Clear up your skin. Due to it’s anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties, honey is the ultimate organic skincare product. Apply a dab of raw, organic honey directly to blemishes and let the skin absorb overnight. Wash it off in the morning. With regular use, you will see your skin clear up.
