Soak Your Cares Away

Honey is very versatile. One of its best properties is attracting, and retaining moisture.

One of the best treats to give yourself after a hard day is a warm bath with 1/4 cup honey. I just pour it out of one of my little recycled jars with the gold tops.

Considering it took 12 bees a lifetime to make one teaspoon, honey really is very precious. Soak for 10-20 minutes.

Bring along a book - I'm currently reading "The Secret Life of Bees."


300 types of honey

Americans consume 1.5 pounds of honey per person annually. They don't guestimate how much bees eat a year.

There are more than 300 types of honey in the United States alone although I wonder how they count it because my bees have never made the same tasting-honey twice.

We all know a drop of honey in tea is good for a sore throat, but you can also add honey to most drinks for an extra energy boost.

Welcome to Home Sweet Bees

When I started keeping honeybees in 2010, I had no intention of falling in love. Bees, I thought, would be fun to add to the garden to help plant pollination.

I now teach and lecture on beginning beekkeeping and started a bee club to help beekeepers share and learn from each other.

I’m also developing my own lines of honey and bee-related products, not to mention being hooked on my own homemade whipped honey.

Have you tried it yet?
