It does wonders for a wide variety of skin ailments including: Rosacea, Eczema, Hyperpigmentation, Wrinkles, Acne and Enlarged Pores. Raw honey is super nourishing and hydrating as well.

Weekends for me are about family and reconnecting with nature. Fortunately for us, we live in a neighborhood surrounded by beautiful mountains and hiking trails. The trail we did on Sunday took us from one city to the next, all while taking in the most amazing views overlooking the city we call home. Thanks to the rain we had this year, the blooms were abundant with buckwheat, mustard, black sage and sumac. Of course this means my friends – the bees – were also out working the honey flow! Most folks are not comfortable sharing such close quarters with buzzing bees, especially if you are with kids. Even my wife and 2 boys were somewhat uneasy during parts of our hike. My advice to them and all of you – Don’t bother the bees and they won’t bother you! Respect the bees. Honeybees are not naturally aggressive. They do not want to sting you. In fact, if they sting you, they die. Just be part of nature. Take time to appreciate the flowers. Pause for a minute to listen to the beautiful harmonics of the bees buzzing around you. It is truly an experience to behold.
