National Honey Bee Day: Fascinating Facts about Liquid Gold

Albert Einstein once said, “If the bee disappeared off the face of the Earth, man would only have four years to live.” From pollinating plants to making delectable honey that adds flavor to any dish, honey bees are some of the most remarkable creatures. In honor of National Honey Bee Day on August 19th, here are some facts about honey that you might not know:

  1. Buying local, raw honey not only supports your local beekeepers but can also help with seasonal allergies! The small amounts of pollen in honey help build immunity to pollen within the environment. It acts as a natural allergy shot, but much less painful and a whole lot tastier.

  2. The purer the honey and the less filtered it is, the greater the medicinal benefits. Less filtration means more antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties.

  3. Honey lasts so long that archeologists have found edible honey in ancient Egyptian tombs.

  4. Frizzy hair? Add a teaspoon of honey to your shampoo or conditioner and let the liquid gold work its magic. It also acts as a natural hair-lightener and will add some shine.

  5. Stubborn pimple… no problem! Dab some honey on it, and let it sit for thirty minutes. Repeat until it’s gone.


No wonder honey is nicknamed liquid gold! And P.S.: Honey bees inspired our corporate colors.
