The healing effect of unprocessed honey has been appreciated since time immemorial. Honey is recommended in the "holy books." It is used as a home medicine, for fever, colds, sleep disorders and for gum disease. In the case of burns and scrapes, honey reduces the scar tissue, making the wounds heal better. Honey is antibacterial, antifungal, it even kills antibiotic-resistant bacteria. The healing power of Propolis is generally recognized.
