Everyone knows that honey tastes sweet, but honey is so good for your skin! Have you heard about Propolis? Propolis is in a category of its own in terms of its healing properties. Honey has 3 other properties you may not know about:
- Honey is a natural moisturizer. In treating wounds, honey helps prevent scarring by keeping the skin moist, encouraging the growth of new skin. Honey keeps skin hydrated by sealing in moisture, leaving it soft.
- Honey is Antibacterial. Researchers began to document the healing properties of honey in the early 1900’s. Cuts, abrasions and burns can be covered in honey to prevent bacteria from entering the wound and promoting healing.
- Honey is a Source of Antioxidants. Honey’s antioxidants are part of the nutrient supply for the growth of new tissue. These properties help protect and rejuvenate skin, as well as treat damaged or dry skin.

And we think our day is busy…. In order to enjoy the sweet taste of honey it takes a lot of Busy Bees. First we have the Nurse Bees they take care of all the little baby bees. Then you have the Attendant Bees they work with the Queen feeding her bathing her and generaly keeping her happy. Keeping the hive safe are the Guard Bees they take turns standing watch over the door or entrance into the hive, not allowing in any intruders. We also have our Construction Worker Bees they are busy creating the wax foundation (which we call the Honey Comb) for the Queen to lay her eggs in. Now on to the the job most of us would not want the Undertakers of the bee hive, they have the unfortunate job of removing any and all deceased bees from the hive. Last but not least we have our Forager Bees, they are the ones that go to and from the hive gathering nectar and pollen. Thing is they have to gather enough to feed the entire colony which at it’s peak could possibly contain up to 60,000 bees at a time. So here at HoneyBell’s we have some really busy Bees!!!
