Raw Honey is antiseptic, antibiotic, anti fungal, antibacterial and never spoils! Honey contains calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, niacin, pantothenic acid, phosphorus, potassium, riboflavin, sodium, thiamin, zinc and god knows what other undiscovered vitamins and minerals.
Always store honey at room temperature, never in the refrigerator. If honey turns cloudy or crystallizes (a natural process), simply place the honey jar in warm water and stir until the crystals dissolve. Don’t take honey with a metal spoon – it changes the composition of the honey.
Use plastic or porcelain instead. Don’t boil or mix honey in hot water. Always keep honey in the house, and make that RAW.
