Friday Faves 96 - A Taste of Honey

Honey has been used for its healing properties for thousands of years. Some of the oldest honey known was found inside an Egyptian tomb. Because of its antibacterial properties it is often used in naturalistic medicine. I have used it myself to stave off colds (I suggest a good, raw buckwheat variety for this), heal wounds, and as a more healthful sweetener. However, it is still high in fructose, so exercise caution if you are sensitive to sugars.

Let's start off by listening to a sweet little tune by Robert Plant and the Honeydrippers, Sea of Love:

Now, let's go shopping!

Honey Shop 1
Kline Honey Bee Farm
What a sweet pick-me-up!

Honey Shop 2
Hardy Pottery
A sweet place to keep your honey, well, not your honey/darling/baby/sweetheart, but the sweet stuff that the bees make.

Honey Shop 3
ND Queen Bee
M'm! Buckwheat honey, lavender, and a clover blend? Decisions, decisions.

Honey Shop 4
Cyberoptix Tie Lab
A honey of a tie!

Stop back by for this coming Music Monday when I'll feature the music of the Charlatans and Tuesday Tutorial will bring instruction in Nordic Walking or Pole Trekking as some call it. Next Friday Faves we'll investigate choices in exercise wear and equipment at Etsy.

Until then, have a great weekend, everyone, and take care out there!
