As with most products, the closer you get to the source, the better off your search for raw honey will be. OK, so not all of us look forward to scooping the stuff right out the hives, but you can usually find bee keepers selling their product at your local farmers market. Although all honeys heal, the rule of thumb here is that the darker the honey, the more healing properties it has.

Now that you know what you are looking for, let’s take a look at all the good things raw honey can bring into your life.

As if this were not enough, honey can be kept indefinitely. Honey has been found stored inside the ancient pyramids of Egypt. Scientists believe that this honey was at least 5,000 years old and it was still edible. Now sometimes, due to temperature changes, honey crystalizes, but all you need to do is place your jar of honey in a bowl of hot water and it will soon return to its normal appearance. You can still use it in its crystallized form; however, there is nothing wrong with it. Find ways to add raw, organic honey to your life. Add it to your morning smoothie or coffee, replace that sugar bowl with a small jar of honey, drizzle it on your toast or pancakes, put some in your tea, drizzle some over your yogurt, or just take a teaspoon every morning as a means of keeping your body healthy and your mouth happy!
