Honey is one of nature’s sweetest offerings. But it does much more than dress up a morning biscuit. Honey has antiseptic and antibacterial properties which make it suitable for treating minor wounds. It also soothes sore throats and reduces allergies. At we offer wild flower honey to spoon over your food. Likewise, you can also find honey lozenges to help protect against flus, colds and allergies.
