After mulling around as to what types of things to post, I decided I will do a little research on things I've been wondering about. With all the talk of the economy and health care, I feel it is beneficial to at least be familiar with natural remedies, should a doctor not be in the house. The benefits of natural medicine may outweigh the side effects of traditional medicine. I have not tried any of these natural remedies for honey, but if the grid goes down, and there is no medical professional around for basic ailments or first aid, you can bet I will try these remedies with prayer and hope they work.
The use of honey has been around for thousands of years. Honey is used as a sweetener in foods and also is used in alternative medicine. The storage of honey takes no effort and has an indefinite shelf life. Honey can be stored in glass, plastic or metal and can be stored in your pantry or root cellar. The best temperature to store honey is less than 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Over time, honey may crystallize. To reliquify honey heat the entire contents and get what you need. You will need to do this every time you need honey as it will recrystallize when cooled. You may lose some of the nutrients over time, by heating and reheating.
NOTE: I am not a medical professional and this should not take the place of doctors advice. Consult with your doctor before trying natural medicine.
