The Importance Of Honey Bees

 Who knew that the honey that's sitting in our kitchen can be the best resource to fight skin problems and it's such a great beauty ingredient? Cleopatra knew that because she used the take baths filled with it and I think the lady was onto something. Of course, you might wonder what makes honey so special, well these are just a few of its benefits:

- Honey is naturally antibacterial, so it's great for acne treatment and prevention.
- It's  full of antioxidants, it is great for slowing down ageing.
- It is extremely moisturising and soothing, so it helps create a glow.
- Honey is clarifying because it opens up pores making them easy to unclog.
- It soaks up impurities and helps detoxify your skin.

Of course, we all talk about the benefits of honey and about what a great product it is but have you ever wondered about the little creatures that produce this honey? We are all scared of bees and we don't think about them a lot, but these tiny creatures have been around for millions of years and they are the only insects that produce food that can be eaten by man.

 Honey bees have a sense of smell which is so precise that it could differentiate hundreds of different floral varieties and tell whether a flower carried pollen or nectar from metres away. Unfortunately, these beautiful creatures are in danger because of parasites, pesticides, poor nutrition and disease. Planting specific flowers and herbs to create a bee-friendly yard could be your best option to help them survive.
