Cosme-Phytami™ Honey

Add to favourites
Honey has been around as long as bees and men have used it as a sweetener and food since the earliest times. Beekeeping was being practiced along the banks of the Nile in Egypt at least as early as 3,000 BC. Beekeepers would place their hives on boats and descend the Nile in stages as the flowers and other plants blossomed. Ancient literature teems with references to bees, Honey, and beekeeping. Greek lyric poets and Solomon, repeatedly describe Honey as a delectable food that should be eaten in happy times among people who enjoy one another’s company. The Romans, a more practical people, left various testimonials to the numerous preparations in which honey was a principal ingredient. Apicius offered recipes that allowed us to reconstruct the nature and type of Roman desserts. It was widely used, in ancient cuisine, possibly even more than sugar is today. Ancient civilizations in Greece, Egypt and Italy already knew the wound-healing, moisturising, and smoothing properties of honey. Japanese women used it for its cleansing properties and for radiance. Honey soothes the skin, increases capillary blood circulation, and ameliorates the appearance of skin.
