Throughout history, gold has been recognized for its luxurious and beautifying properties. Historians have long maintained that Cleopatra used pure gold as a tool to maintain youthful skin by reportedly sleeping in a gold mask every night. In ancient Rome, gold salves were used for the treatment of a variety of skin problems. In ancient Chinese medicine gold was a key to youth, as the queen of the Ch’ing dynasty used a gold massage roller on her face every day. Egyptians believed the healing powers of gold could cure all manner of physical, mental and spiritual aliments. The application of gold compounds to medicine, called chrysotherapy, reduces inflammation beneficial in the treatment of a variety of diseases, but this therapy often causes adverse gold-related skin reactions.

What Makes Organic Honey Different?

Winnie the Pooh may have been trying to teach a lesson when he wanted honey every time he got a "rumbly in his tumbly." From weight loss to skin clearing to pain relief, the benefits of honey are vast. When harvested organically, it becomes a healthy, medicinal treat that surpasses in taste any doctor-ordered prescription.

Organic vs. Non-Organic

Organic honey production involves stringent guidelines to protect the honey from contamination by pesticides and antibiotics. Not only do these antibiotics and pesticides alter the taste of pure honey, but they also are believed to cause cancer and aplastic anemia when consumed in large doses by humans. Other than these facts, organic and non-organic honey are equal in beneficial properties.

Workout Supplement

Chocked full of carbohydrates--17g per tablespoon--honey can provide a sustaining energy source for your workout. According to the National Honey Board, if you consume pure honey prior to a workout, it will get absorbed in your system and provide you with energy throughout the exercise. Adding it to the water bottle that you use during the activity will delay fatigue. Combine it with protein within 30 minutes after your workout and you will maintain comfortable blood sugar levels, decrease delayed onset muscle soreness, and replenish glycogen stores that were depleted during exercise.

Skin Aid

Honey is found in many store-bought beauty products and it can be added to the ones you have at home. As a humectant, it moisturizes the skin to keep it soft and smooth. Mixing honey with milk enhances products' antimicrobial and cleansing benefits. It leaves the skin glowing and may even improve acne when mixed with cinnamon to form a paste. It may be topically applied on a regular basis.

Medicinal Properties

According to Organic Facts, mixing honey with ginger may reduce respiratory problems, asthma and indigestion. Alone and with other mixtures, honey has been credited with relieving cough and sore throat, aiding sleep, boosting the immune system and treating stomach ulcers, bladder infections and arthritis. Applied topically it can decrease burns, heal infections, relieve toothaches and improve eczema. It is also a safe sweetener choice for diabetics.

Weight Loss

The Global Healing Center website reports that mixing honey with lemon can help melt away fat. Because it is cholesterol-free, you do not have to worry about it elevating your cholesterol levels. Mixing it with milk for a morning drink will boost your stamina to give you the energy you need to get more work accomplished, thereby burning more calories.

Greek Oregano Health Benefits

Hippocrates, the great Greek philosopher and scholar, used oregano for medicinal purposes. He used it as both an anesthetic and for digestive problems. Oregano’s key chemical components are Acetate, Borneol, Bisabolene , Carvacrol, Caryophyllene, Cymene, Geranyl, Linalool, Linalyl Acetate, Pinene, Terpinene and Thymol. All of these chemicals are present in the leaves and in the oils, so they have both topical and internal benefits.
It has been thought to be an effective treatment for bacteria and parasite infestation in the colon and intestines. In fact, Mexican researchers have found it effective in combating giardia, an intestinal infection caused by a microscopic parasite. 

Because of its anti-parasitical affect, its oil has been used in head lice treatments. Herbalists recommend it for the treatment of E-coli.
Oregano also has anti-inflammatory benefits. Some people rub the oil on inflamed joints and muscles. Topically, it can also be used as an antiseptic and anti-bacterial spread to relieve acne, cold sores, and minor cuts and scrapes.
It has been used in the treatment of allergies and even to regulate menstrual periods. Some cultures use it as a powerful pain killer. A few drops of the oil in juice consumed for 3-5 days may help clear up a sinus infection.
Oregano also has a large amount of antioxidants in its oil and leaves. It has 42 times the antioxidants as a medium sized apple, 30 times more than a white potato and 12 times more than an orange.

Ways to Prepare Oregano

Oregano is most commonly used as a seasoning in stews, pizzas and tomato based sauces. Fresh oregano leaves can enhance the flavor of salads and soups as well as Mediterranean dishes.
It is labor intensive to squeeze the oils from the leaves and stems.

Oregano Cautions and Concerns

Not everyone should take oregano. Especially women who are pregnant should avoid digesting or absorbing oregano. It can weaken the lining of the embryonic sack.
If you are allergic to mint, sage, basil or thyme, you might also be allergic to oregano. Though used in the aid of digestive problems, it can cause the opposite effect in some people.
Oregano oil may reduce the body’s ability to absorb iron, which is another reason women and children in particular should not consume large amounts of oregano. Seek medical advice about an iron supplement if oregano is a staple in your culture’s cuisine.

Honey and Cinnamon Remedy

The combination of honey and cinnamon has been used in both oriental and Ayurvedic medicine for centuries. Cinnamon is one of the oldest spices known to mankind and honey's popularity has continued throughout history. The two ingredients with unique healing abilities have a long history as a home remedy. Cinnamon's essential oils and honey's enzyme that produces hydrogen peroxide qualify the two "anti-microbial" foods with the ability to help stop the growth of bacteria as well as fungi. Both are used not just as a beverage flavoring and medicine, but also as an embalming agent and are used as alternatives to traditional food preservatives due to their effective antimicrobial properties. People have claimed that the mixture is a natural cure for many diseases and a formula for many health benefits:
1) HEART DISEASES: Apply honey and cinnamon powder on bread instead of using jam or butter and eat it regularly for breakfast.
2) ARTHRITIS: Apply a paste made of the two ingredients on the affected part of the body and massage slowly.
3) HAIR LOSS: Apply a paste of hot olive oil, a tablespoon of honey, a teaspoon of cinnamon powder before bath, leave it for 15 min and wash.
4) BLADDER INFECTIONS: Mix cinnamon powder and honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink.
5) TOOTHACHE: Apply a paste of cinnamon powder and honey and on the aching tooth.
6) CHOLESTEROL: Add honey to cinnamon powder mixed in boiled water or green tea and drink.
7) COLDS: Make a glass of lukewarm honey water mixed with cinnamon powder to help boost your immune system during the cold season. It may also help to clear your sinuses.
8) INDIGESTION: Cinnamon powder sprinkled on a spoonful of honey taken before food relieves acidity.
9) LONGEVITY: Regularly take tea made with honey and a little cinnamon powder.
10) PIMPLES: Mix honey with cinnamon powder and apply paste on the pimples before sleeping and wash away the next morning.
11) OBESITY: To reduce weight, daily drink a mixture of a teaspoon of honey with half a teaspoon of cinnamon powder boiled in water with an empty stomach in the morning about half an hour before breakfast. Read: Cinnamon and Honey Recipe. <-- Don't Miss It!
Cinnamon has an insulin boosting property (water soluble compounds called polyphenol type A polymers) which have the ability to boost insulin activity about 20 fold and can benefit people who have high sugar levels (obese people, pre-diabetics and diabetics). Also, read the honey hibernation diet theory to find out how honey contributes to the metabolizing of undesirable cholesterol and fatty acid, provides a fuelling mechanism for the body, keep blood sugar levels balanced, and let our recovery hormones get on with burning body fat stores.
12) BAD BREATH: Gargle with honey and cinnamon powder mixed in hot water so that breath stays fresh throughout the day.

Bioactivity of Greekhoney extracts on breast cancer (MCF-7), prostate cancer (PC-3) and endometrial cancer (Ishikawa) cells: Profile analysis of extracts

Historically, honey has been important in Greek culture. The chemical composition and the potential of Greekhoney extracts (thyme, pine and fir honey) to influence the oestrogenic activity and the cell viability of breast (MCF-7), endometrial (Ishikawa) and prostate (PC-3) cancer cells were investigated. All honeys contained total phenolics, phenolic acids and hydroxymethylfurfural, the levels being highest in thymehoney. Sugars and volatile compounds, but not fatty acids, were detected in all honey extracts. Thyme, pine and fir honey showed both antioestrogenic and a weak oestrogenic effect at low and high concentration, respectively, in MCF-7 cells. Thymehoney reduced the viability of Ishikawa and PC-3 cells, whereas fir honey stimulated the viability of MCF-7 cells. In conclusion, Greekhoneys are rich in phenolic compounds, they modulate oestrogenic activity whereas a thymehoney-enriched diet may prevent cancer-related processes in breast, prostate and endometrial cancer cells.

Greek Honey - The Food of the Gods

Greek honey is, quite simply, divine. Few other foods offer such a combination of wonderful flavour and proven medicinal benefits. The hard-working Greek honey bee enjoys an elevated status in Greece, and rightly so; Greek honey mixes the sweet, delicate fragrance of mountain flowers, with a dose of concentrated Greek sunshine.

Greek Honey and the Blessings of Chloris

Despite the relatively small size of the country, its rich diversity of fragrant, indigenous flowers provides the perfect environment for apiculture. Amongst the rugged and tumbling slopes of Greece’s ancient mountains, rows of beehives are set amongst a kaleidoscopic array of beautiful wildflowers. The Greek spring sees the barren, rocky mountain slopes clad with the blessings of Chloris, the bees frantically taking advantage of this annual abundance. 

Most of the Greek mountains are untouched by chemicals, and there are no herbicides or insecticides to disturb the labour of the Greek honeybees. The experienced apiculturist understands sustainable farming, taking only what he needs and leaving the bees with plenty of honey for the hard winter. His symbiosis with the bees is an ancient friendship, and Greek honey stands alongside olive oil as one of the staple Greek foods.
Greek honey is an integral part of the famous Mediterranean diet, long recognised as one of the secrets to good health and long life.

Greek Honey - The Hard Greek Mountains

The best Greek mountain honey comes from the towering White Mountains of Crete, the unforgiving slopes of the Taygetos Mountains, and the parched Mani peninsula. These areas, barren for most of the year, come to life in the spring, as the gentle rain seeps into the limestone. Colourful flowers cling to every crevice, softening the hard mountains and attracting Greek honeybees and butterflies.

What Gives Greek Honey its Unique Flavour?

The rich, complex flavour of Greek honey stems from the unique flowers found in this ancient land. Greek honeybees gorge on nectar from the fragrant thyme, oregano, and rosemary plants, alongside the delicate orange and jasmine blossom. Greece has over 7500 types of flower, with 850 of them are indigenous to the area, and this gives Greek honey its divine blend of delicate floral fragrances and mellow sweetness.
Greek bees have to work very hard for their wealth, and this is what gives Greek honey its characteristic strength and flavour. It is extremely difficult for the bees to extract nectar from the stingy plants, and the bees produce less honey per beehive than in most other areas. The benefit of this is that the honey is dense, containing less water, and the flavours and nutrients are highly concentrated.

Bee Pollen Benefits and Side Effects

For years, herbalists have touted bee pollen as an exceptionally nutritious food. They've even claimed it is a cure for certain health problems. Yet after years of research, scientists still cannot confirm that bee pollen has any health benefits.

What Is Bee Pollen?

Bee pollen contains vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, lipids, and protein. It comes from the pollen that collects on the bodies of bees. Bee pollen may also include bee saliva.
It's important to avoid confusing bee pollen with natural honey, honeycomb, bee venom, or royal jelly. These products do not contain bee pollen.

How Is Bee Pollen Used?

Bee pollen is available at many health food stores. You may find bee pollen in other natural dietary supplements as well as in skin softening products used for baby's diaper rash or eczema.
You may also hear recommendations for using bee pollen for alcoholism, asthma, allergies, health maintenance, or stomach problems. But before you take any natural product for a health condition, check with your doctor.
Bee pollen is also recommended by some herbalists to enhance athletic performance, reduce side effects of chemotherapy, and improve allergies and asthma.
At this point, medical research has not shown that bee pollen is effective for any of these health concerns.

Is Bee Pollen Safe?

Bee pollen appears to be safe, at least when taken for a short term. But if you have pollen allergies, you may get more than you bargained for. Bee pollen can cause a serious allergic reaction -- including shortness of breath, hives, swelling, and anaphylaxis.
Bee pollen is not safe for pregnant women. A woman should also avoid using bee pollen if she is breastfeeding.


The apiculture is the art of the bee cultivating in order to produce honey.
Honey is a fluid saccharine substance with a special flavor.
This flavor comes from the nectar of the plants and flowers absorbed by the bee.
The quality of the honey itself depends on the type of the plant or flower visited by the bee.
The best honey comes from the thyme, lavender, rosemary, lime-tree and orange-tree.
The main factor for successful honey productive areas is the variety of habitats able to give the adequate quality of honey.
From this point of view Greece despite its small size is one of the most suitable places, if not the most, for apiculture due to its rich flora and temperate climate.
For that reason Greek Honey is unique.
Greek honey has specific physical and chemical characteristics.
Its supreme quality reflects the country's long sunshine periods and the abrupt changes in the landscape. This special landscape makes Greek flora so rich, that from the 7500 different species of plants growing in Greece, 850 of them are found exclusively here.
That is the explanation why certain varieties of honey (e.g. Thyme Honey) do not exist anywhere else in the world.
There are varieties that come from coniferous trees, and others that come from flowers and aromatic plants.

As a result of the particularities of Greek landscape, the honey comes from a large variety of plants, where a certain flower dominates the rest and so it characterizes that particular variety.
Greeks have always been exporting honey. It is a traditional Greek product with many productive areas throughout the country.
The best honey in Greece comes from thyme, by far the best honey in the world.

Of exceptional quality is the honey coming from flowers and thyme and herbs, flowers and forest originated honey such as sylvan honey, pine tree honey and conifer trees honey.
Due to country shape, climate and unique flora, the apiculture in Greece is highly developed with long-lasting tradition, producing in excess all the top varieties of honey.
The country's honey is world famous giving Greece one of the top positions in world level concerning the production, export and use of this healthy and natural product.
The product itself is blessed by nature. Honey helps maintain a healthy organism.

As part of our every day diet it is very healthy for breakfast! For example spread on the bread or mixed with milk or yoghurt and cereals. Honey is a source of high energy and as such is perfect for an afternoon energy-boost mixed in our coffee or tea instead of
sugar or spread over walnuts or white soft cheese. It is also used in many recipes for sauces and for "stuffing" chicken and duck.
