Fewster’s Farm Honey – October 2022 News
Welcome to the October issue of our Newsletter!
From the Bee Keeper…
The warmer spring weather and the abundance of pollen and nectar mean the conditions are good for raising new bee colonies. The longer, warmer days mean Queen egg production increases resulting in growing bee numbers.
On a different note, we have been working with Avocado farmers in the south west of Western Australia to drop bees into Avocado plantations for pollination. This is nighttime work for beekeepers as the bees are less active!
Honey was used as a natural sweetener long before sugar became available. Honey is an extremely useful ingredient to have in the kitchen. Many refer to it as ‘liquid gold’ for its many health and beauty benefits.
Great for the Immune System: Honey can be a great boost to the immune system due to its antioxidant and anti-bacterial properties, which can improve the functioning of the digestive system and help you stay healthy and fight disease.
Sore throat cure: This is probably a common remedy you use at home. Honey is a great way to help treat sore throats or at least reduce the painful symptoms. Not only does it soothe the throat, it also kills the bacteria that causes the infection. The most common way to consume it is drinking a warm cup of water mixed with honey and lemon.
Treatment for cuts and burns: Honey has been widely recognised as a natural remedy for cuts and burns due to its antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties. These properties stop the growth of infection causing bacteria and help to keep the wounds clean and infection free. Some of the ailments honey has been used to treat are athlete’s foot, arthritis and yeast infection.
For sleeplessness and insomnia: This might seem to be a strange use for this ingredient however it can help to calm the soul and induce sleep. Sip a glass of hot milk mixed with a teaspoon or two of honey or add a few teaspoons to a cup of chamomile tea.
Skin treatments: Honey’s anti-bacterial properties make it a great ingredient to use in DIY skin treatments. Use raw honey as a mask and wash off after 30 minutes to reveal bright and soft skin. It is particularly great for those with sensitive or acne-prone skin. Use it in your bath to combat dry skin or mix it with sugar or baking soda for a great exfoliator that can be used on the face and body
