Honey is a in a true sense healing remedy – but only if taken raw. You see, when you cook it it gets “sterilized” with high heat and loses its healing effect.
There are many different types of honey. Some of those are wildflower honey, tupelo honey, organic honey, and clover honey. One of my preferred honeys is raw wildflower honey.
