Have you been consuming raw honey? Its many health benefits makes it a must have! You can read all about the benefits of raw honey here. Don’t mistake the conventional honey sold in most grocery stores for raw honey. That type of honey normally contains high fructose corn syrup (which may contain GMOs) and does not offer any health benefits.  Skip it! Look for RAW.

One of the best brands of raw honey you can buy is Wedderspoon Raw Honey. This is the gold standard of raw honey! Wedderspoon Organic Manuka Honey is free of any pesticides, contains live enzymes, antioxidants and various phytochemical components. And its delicious!

You might be asking yourself “what is Manuka?” And I have the answer thanks to wikipedia: “Mānuka honey is a monofloral honey produced in New Zealand and Australia from the nectar of the mānuka tree.”

Manuka honey contains antibacterial properties and is known for:

Preventing and treating cancer

Reducing high cholesterol

Reducing systemic inflammation

Treating diabetes

Treating eye, ear, and sinus infections

Treating gastrointestinal problems

The Rolls Royce of manuka is this one- Wedderspoon Gold Organic Raw Manuka 16+. The taste is mild and light with a creamy texture. Its tasty to eat right off the spoon but works topically for troubled skin and digestive issues too.

I tried several samples of Wedderspoon raw honey and if you think they are all the same, think again! These each have their own flavors and can be used to flavor foods and beverages although I like mine straight up on a spoon.

There’s the Beechwood Honey, Dandelion Honey, Rata Honey, Thyme Honey, Gold Fir Honey. I would have a really hard time choosing a favorite.They are all tasty, smooth and delicious. I had no idea that the taste of honey could vary so much!

Wedderspoon also makes soaps and lip balms along with a Bee Venom Mask! The mask leaves skin very soft and moisturized. Its made with “premium bee venom, rare New Zealand organic manuka honey and our own unique blend of natural botanical oils.” I can’t believe how soft my skin was after trying it.

I do not hesitate to send you over to the Wedderspoon site to check out the variety of raw, quality honeys that they offer. I encourage you to incorporate a spoon of raw honey goodness into your daily diet!
