Amorpha honey is a great way to help deal with exhaustion or for giving yourself a natural boost of energy at the end of the day.

Most people are not fond of this flavor, however, as they say it has a bitter aftertaste. It is difficult to find this honey as most of it is sold to food producers. Many people who are allergic to nuts find that they can eat this honey, but please exercise caution  as nut allergies can be life threatening.

 

6. Hawthorn Honey

Honey that is made from hawthorn flowers is brown and very strong smelling. However, this honey is great for those with heart problems as it helps those suffering from angina pectoris, myocarditis, atherosclerosis, while it regulates the blood pressure. Hawthorn honey is used because it has a naturally calming effect on the body. It can also lower cholesterol levels. Make a paste with cinnamon and honey and put it in your coffee, tea, smoothie, or a slice of bread each day to lower cholesterol levels naturally.
