Healing Powers of Honey

Dr. Oz, the health expert discovered and launched into fame by Oprah Winfrey, has surprised us recently by becoming a true champion of honey. We don’t feel the cold much in Hawaii or too much in California, where our honeys are packed and distributed from, but that doesn’t mean we don’t get colds. At Tropical Traders, we’ve been using honey as a natural cold remedy for years, but here are some of Dr. Oz’s recipes and videos that we thought might help you this cold season:

Honey is known to bolster the immune system. A daily dose of honey can help you to feel energetic and stay healthy. It also has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties; if you do develop a sore or scratchy throat, honey will soothe and help heal. Use it in your tea, coffee, plain hot water or by itself. You can even gargle with honey (and lemon) in salt water when the mixture is at room temperature. (Do not give honey to children under 1 year of age.)
