Honey is a natural moisturiser. Because it attracts and retains water, honey helps soothe, soften and moisturise the skin. We use honey in many of our lotions, body butters and scrubs. Where on earth is it from? The honeybee originated in Africa, then migrated to Europe and Asia about a million years ago. In ancient times, honey was a valuable source of sugar and it was used to make mead for wine and alcoholic beverages. Honeybees not only produce honey, but they also work to pollinate a variety of plant and flower species. Even our global food production depends on the pollination from these busy bees.
