spirit of the Bees

 I love the divine medicine that the bees provide to us. I use honey and bee pollen consistently in my kitchen, teas, salads, beauty care, or I eat it straight out of the jar. Unheated  raw honey  is a powerful superfood. It is full of enzymes to help digest it, contains vitamins A,B,C,D and K, is full of anti-oxidants, and essential minerals. It is anti-bacterial and anti- fungal and can be used topically to heal wounds and hydrate the skin.   Bee pollen  is one of the most nourishing foods, containing 40% protein, and almost all the nutrients human beings need. It is also great for allergies!

Beauty Mask Recipe:

Manuka honey is one of my best friends and it should be one of yours too. It has incredible healing benefits not only internally but topically on our skin. I use it as a weekly herbal mask, and depending on my skin needs I combine it with different herbal ingredients. Mostly things I can find in my kitchen cabinet.

It is hydrating, anti-imflamatory, so acts to reduce acne and redness, plus it promotes skin regeneration and repairs cellular damage!

Formula for Skin Radiance:

  • 1 tsp Matcha powder
  • 1 tsp Manuka Honey
  • 1 capsule Vitamin C 500 mg

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl to create a thick paste. Cleanse your skin first, thenapply the mask evenly. Leave for 20 min and rinse with warm water. This recipe will give your skin a punch of anti-oxidants from the green tea as well as hydrating it, and oxygenating it drawing out bacteria and leaving your skin beautiful, soft and radiant.

Tips: You can change up this recipe and try other ingredients, i also love to use turmeric powder, or baking soda instead of Matcha!
