Let’s Give you the Sweet Stuff … About Honey
Bees have been producing honey for millions of years. Concurrently, humans have been harvesting it for thousands of years. In fact, an ancient cave painting that was discovered in Valencia, Spain, depicts a human figure removing honey from a hive. It could date from as far back as 15,000 years ago.
Many people are hesitant to consume insects as a source of protein. Nonetheless, we have no problem eating a substance that has been regurgitated by them. We also consume Royal Jelly, beeswax, bee pollen, and propolis provided by bees. Honey notably is the only food that includes all the substances necessary to sustain life. This includes enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and water. Additionally, it is the only food that contains “pinocembrin”, an antioxidant associated with improved brain function. Without doubt, the gifts that bees provide us gives them the symbolic value of providence.
It takes up to 800 bees to collect nectar from 2 million flowers in order to make one pound of honey. About one ounce of honey is all it takes to give the honey bee enough energy to fly around the world. In reality though, the farthest they fly away from their hive is about 6 miles.
Feel the wash of abundance and generosity that bees impart when you wear your earrings. Match them with the Bee Silver Plated Necklace for a real tribute to these bountiful insects.
Look Beyond Perfection
“If bees only gathered nectar from perfect flowers, they wouldn’t be able to make even a single drop of honey.” Matshona Dhliwayo
