Honey is a truly magical superfood. It aids with spring time allergies, it's an antiseptic, used to cure several ailments, and is a main ingredient in homemade beauty products. It has been on my must have list for quite some time.
This pure, golden, sweet treat is a favorite of mine, but unfortunately honey bees are in danger. Bee colonies are declining and the impacts are far reaching. Devastation will follow if it continues. This NY Times article provides a brief glance. It's an older article but the information is still relevant.
Instead of swatting a bee next time you see one, thank it instead. Not only do they do most of the pollination work, but they also gives us one of the best creations from mother nature.
