Honey could be in liquid, raw or pasteurized form, whipped, and honeycomb. Some honey varieties are Acacia, Alfafa, Chestnut, Orange blossom, Manuka, Sage and Lavender. Because of the big variety of honey, the drink will have a different taste depending on the type you use. Honey may also vary in colour, taste, smell and even texture.

Why is honey good?
Honey contains antioxidants, which reduce the risk of heart attacks, strokes and some types of cancer, as well as promote eye health. High-quality honey contains organic acids and phenolic compounds. According to scientists, the combination of these compounds gives honey its antioxidant power. In fact, two studies have shown that buckwheat honey increases the antioxidant value of the blood. Several studies also show that honey may improve your cholesterol levels.
Honey has been used to heal wounds and burns since ancient Egypt, and it is still commonly used today. Researchers believe that honey’s healing powers come from its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects, as well as the ability to nourish surrounding tissue. Manuka honey is considered very effective for treating wounds.

The history of drinking water
Drinking water is such a common thing that people often take it for granted. Having the access to a clean water every day is something very normal for today’s society. However, that hasn’t always been the case.
Humans have worked throughout history to produce clean drinking water, and such ways even date back to the time when the fire wasn’t even discovered as a tool.
In ancient times, people would know if water is pure by its taste. However, this method has been found to be fairly incorrect.
The purification of water is also mentioned in the Bible. When the Israelites and Moses found that the water in Marah was bitter in the 12th century, following instructions from God, he cast a tree into the water, and it immediately sweetened. Another example is when the residents of Jericho complained to Elisha that the water in the city was “naught” and the prophet turned it into pure water by casting salt in it.
Both Greeks and Romans had very detailed water purifying systems. They used many methods to produce clean, drinking water. One method was placing macerated laurels in rainwater by Diophanes and the immersion of a bag of bruised coral by Paxamus. In the 8th century A.D., an Arabian chemist called Gerber, had the idea to use wick siphons as a way to purify water.
Between the 17th and 18th centuries, filtration became the preferred water purification method for many communities. Furthermore, in 1703, the French scientist La Hire suggested that every household should have a rainwater cistern and a sand filter. The system included a covered and elevated cistern which kept the water in its form and prevented it from freezing (www.freedrinkingwater.com).
Why is drinking water good?
Drinking water is cheap and it helps maintain the balance of body fluids. The human body is composed of around 60% water. Some of the functions of these fluids include digestion, absorption, circulation, creation of saliva, maintenance of body temperature, and the transportation of nutrients.
Our body needs water to spread oxygen – Blood is more than 90% water, and it carries oxygen to different parts of our body. Water lubricates the joints, forms saliva and mucus, boosts skin health and beauty, cushions the brain, spinal cord, and other sensitive tissues regulates body temperature, flushes body waste, helps maintain blood pressure and has many other benefits.
Why are lemons good?
Lemons contain a high amount of vitamin C, soluble fibre, and plant compounds that give them a number of health benefits. They are also well known to be a great weight loss supplement. Consuming lemons regularly may reduce the risk of heart disease, anaemia, kidney stones, digestive issues, and cancer.
One of the reasons people consume lemons is their strong taste and their ability to add more flavour to any dish. They are also a great addition to drinks like tea, cocktails and even plain water.
Water, Honey and Lemon
Mixing honey with warm water and lemon is a combination used for ages and prescribed by experts for many reasons. One of them being weight loss. Having a glass of hot water every morning helps the body get rid of toxins in the system. Adding lemon and honey creates a healing elixir. The drink is believed to help melt fat, clear acne and flush out toxins from the body.
Our HoneyBee&co honey is produced in pure and uncontaminated natural areas which means it has no pesticides and it’s very high quality.
Why honey instead of sugar?
Honey is full of vitamins and minerals which makes it very healthy. Another reason to choose honey instead of sugar is that opposite to sugar, honey contains more fructose which makes it the sweeter option between the two. Ergo when you need to sweeten your drink or food, you will use less honey than you would sugar.
Our HoneyBee&co honey is rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants are linked to reducing the risk of heart attacks, strokes, and cancer.
The drink is also a great substitute for tea. There are many different types of honey and each of them is made from a different flower, therefore the taste may vary. Mixed all together the three ingredients have so many benefits and consumed every day the beverage is a real elixir.
