For centuries the history of honey has been attributed to folklore, myth and legend and recognised as a gift from heaven. Nectar, Ambrosia and Food of the Gods were words frequently used throughout the Ancient World to describe honey. They believed in the power of honey which they developed into many honey cures. There are so many references made to this golden liquid not least from China, which is in fact the largest honey producing country in the world.

Right through to India and the Nordic lands. It is the oldest food and ancient medicines source known to man, WOW that is amazing I'm sure you will agree. People from Africa, which is where the history of honey began, Egypt, Greece, India, Spain, Israel and India, just to name a few were passionate about honey, seeking it out despite the fear of being stung.
