Honey is a sweet viscous fluid manufactured by bees from nectar collected from flowers and sorted in nests or hives for food. It contains properties of the flowers it is manufactured from. Honey is sweeter than sucrose, so less of a quantity is required for sweetness. It is known to soothe sore tissues.
Hippocrates: Honey and pollen cause warmth, cleanse sores and ulcers, soften hard ulcers of the lips, heal carbuncles and running sores.
