      dipsmi, Very nicely presented. I do appreciate the contributions made by honey in softening my skin and bringing out a natural glow in my hair, but I love honey most when I consume it. It's just so pretty; I love its glow and its taste.

      Thank you for highlighting this information, which, according to other comments, apparently is not common knowledge.

      Hope you don't mind that I checked funny. I had to laugh when I realized that my skin will be suffering, becase no honey can escape my mouth. In Florida, we have some of the best honey, and if you go to the bee keepers you can get a lot for a low price. Orange blossom honey is delicate. My favorite is from a nice old man who lets his bees go where they want. His honey is dark and husky. He claims that it is the best preventive medicine, since it has the pollen of every flowering plant.
