"The Miracle of Raw Honey - Liquid Gold"

....Honeycomb is another way to benefit from the hard work of honey bees. The honeycombs contain besides beeswax and raw honey, also bee pollen, propolis, and royal jelly. It is rich in nutrients and a good source of carbohydrates and antioxidants. It also contains trace amounts of protein, vitamins, and minerals. When chewing honeycomb, one inevitably is left with a moth full of delicious beeswax, which is rich in long-chain fatty acids and is known to lower cholesterol.

Besides its nutritional values and its use as food, honey has also been used as pure medicine and beauty product. It is particularly effective for wounds and burns. When stabbing my palm with a sharp stick that deeply penetrated my hand, I had a chance to experience the miracle of raw honey:

Day one : I received a deep puncture wound (3/4) in my palm from falling on a stump that had been chewed to a razor-sharp point by a beaver. I had washed it well with alcohol before I took this picture. Then I covered it with a bandage for the remainder of the afternoon and night.
 
     
Day two: It looked a little nasty when I took the bandage off in the morning. So, I decided to put some raw honey on the wound and another bandage for the day and the second night.
 
     
Day three : I was blown away when I took the bandage off the morning of day three!
 
     

Note of caution : Raw honey is not suited for children under the age of one and pregnant women.
