Save the Honey Bees

Did you know that honey bees are responsible for the pollination of one-third of the foods we eat. Did you also knowthat honey bees are in danger due to “Colony Collapse Disorder”. In the past several years it has been noticed that an alarming amount of honey bees are abruptly abandoning their hives and dying off. The real reason is unknown but some theories are pesticides, environmental changes, genetically modified crops, invading insects and radiation. Whatever the culprit is, the honey bees need to be saved as they are critical to the ecological diversity and health of our planet.
Honey does more than add a pleasant taste to baked goods and drinks. Honey is naturally antiseptic and is used to cleanse in certified organic skin care products, sooth as throat lozenges and heal everyday cuts and scrapes. During the winter when my family gets that scratchy irritating cough I send them to bed with a spoonful of honey to soothe the pain and help get them a peaceful night’s sleep. When Shaun comes in the house with his normal scrapes from just being a boy a light smear of honey kills off the germs and bacteria building up. Zits are no match either for honey. The antiseptic properties kill the germs, reduce redness and brings back healthy clear skin in no time.

Now that you know how beneficial honey is to your healthy, beauty and ultimately the world around us hopefully you can pitch in and help the honey bees continue to create the beehive products we need each day.
