It opens with a description of bees and how honey and beeswax are formed as well as the social order within bees and types of bees. It then gives a history of what is known about honey (including the fact that it was known and used as early as 7000 bc. Not sure who the first person was who decided to brave stealing this nectar from the bees, but we all have reason to be grateful.
Then comes an intriguing section on beginning beekeeping.
From there, the author presents TYPES of honey followed by the health benefits of honey.
Finally, we arrive at the section the title implies. We are given recipes for cosmetics and food recipes using honey.
They are well indexed and easy to follow.
The book concludes with additional random facts about bees.
This would make an excellent study for students, scouts, FFA members or others interested in researching bees.
Numerous health benefits were listed by category; i.e., arthritis, cholesterol, high blood pressure, insomnia, plus many more. The beauty treatments covered facial masks, scrubs, toners, plus balms and baths. Luxurious. There are also many culinary uses (and recipes) using honey. Can't wait to try the Baklava and the honey shortbread.
The book also includes a brief history of honey being used by the Chinese and Egyptian cultures thousands of years ago, plus info on the different types of bees and bee-keeping. This was not my main interest, so I skimmed over some of that area.
I really enjoyed this book and learned a lot from it. I highly recommend it.
