If you love honey, or want to know more about the benefits of honey, then this book is a must. I especially loved Chapter 11 called, "Home Remedies From Your Kitchen," which lists 50 cures. I also love the way Cal Orey summarizes each chapter for you, under the heading, "Un-Bee-lievable Healing Hints to Catch." Listed in Chapter 7 are the many flavors of honey, including a description of each type. Many delicious recipes are also included throughout the book. At the end sites are listed where one can purchase the various types of honey if they are not available where you live.
I started becoming more aware of the benefits honey has for you after age 73. Used to think it was sweet but knew nothing about quality honey. Started buying raw honey and that has made a big difference in my honey usage. Found the "Healing Powers of Honey" book at Amazon and got the trial version. That was great so I ordered the complete book. Since reading the trial version I started researching honeys. Honey is now a part of my daily intake. This book explains fairly well and has taught me about different kinds of honey and the healing powers in different kinds of honey. I will never again buy the clean, clear honey you see in stores as it has been heated up, filtered and processed so that its only value is sweetness. Raw honey that has not had temperature raised over 120 degrees and that is slowly filtered but not pressure filtered, maintains its healthy enzymes. Unheated and unfiltered it becomes a health food and not just a sweetener.
I've almost finished the book. I did learn some amazing facts regarding Honey. I certainly gained a huge respect for the bee. We work hard at attracting bees to our garden keeping it pesticide free etc, but lots of insight received from the book. I only gave it a four star as I also thought there was information that wasn't so relative. Others may appreciate the information more than I did.
