Honey really does work

I woke up at 2 this morning with one heck of a sore throat (sinuses draining). It hurt to swallow, I couldn't fall back to sleep, I kept drinking water but it wasn't helping. I decided to get up and try honey. Thankfully I had stopped at the natural store last week and had some local raw honey on hand. I ate a teaspoon full and almost instantly felt relief. I felt well enough to fall right back to sleep.

It's funny because I've never tried it but keep trying to get my kids to try it when they complain of a sore throat, lol.

I'm sitting here sipping some organic tea with honey it to help me even more while I wait for the rest of the water I boiled to cool, so I can use it for the sinus rinse.

We keep bees and honey and propolis are our go to medicine. Honey mixed with propolis is awesome for sore throats. Honey is also amazing for small burns.

we use local raw honey too. i'm not a fan of the taste of honey plain so I wish I could find ways to use it better. can't put it in my tea because it loses its properties when it gets hot.
