Honey, Bees and Other Sweetness

Carolyn Verastigue (bee keeper and all around awesome human being) and Dr. Heather Wdowin chat about bees, health, honey, and how to make the most out of life.

Honey Bees!

I think that bees are the closest thing we have to magic. Honey thousands of years old has been found in Pharaoh’s tombs, still edible! Honey is great for the immune system, can help with infections, and local honey can help decrease your response in allergy season. That means your allergies aren’t as bad!

Plastic is poisoning us! You can use beeswax covered cloth instead of plastic wrap, and help the environment.

Bees are wondrous creatures, with a complex social structure, they navigate by the sun, and dance to communicate! With Colony Collapse Disorder, it is very important that we protect bees from pesticides. Become a bee keeper, don’t buy plants covered pesticides, and go organic! Protect our bees!

Can you tell that we are passionate about bees?

You can support bees by planting flowers they love:

  • Borage
  • Peonies
  • Bee Balm
  • Lavender
  • Phlox
  • Zinnias
  • Marigold
  • Chives
  • Mint
  • Sage
  • Nasturtium

Luckily, these plants are often easy to find and grow. Some are medicinal, and others you can use in your cooking!

“Go to your fields and your gardens, and you shall learn that it is the pleasure of the bee to gather honey of the flower, But it is also the pleasure of the flower to yield its honey to the bee. For to the bee a flower is a fountain of life, And to the flower a bee is a messenger of love.” #kahlilgibran #beesaremagic #honey #savethebees ...

A mixture of clay, peat moss and hot springs water, it smelled earthy and felt delicious. They heat it up so it’s a hot sauna of #mud your body gets suspended in. I was in there for 12 minutes and wish it had been longer. #grounding #earthhealing #mudbath #calistoga #detox ...
