Burt's Bees is a great company
Honey actually has been shown to provide an effect like that of antibiotics, without the side-effects. It helps with allergies (I'm sure I can find those studies again, Willow
), burns, skin issues, and general illnesses. It's also the only food that doesn't go bad (honey from ancient Egyptian times was found in a tomb just a few years ago, and it was still edible). That says a lot, both physically and metaphysically.
Generally speaking, when you heat anything above 105F, enzymes/phyotonutrients/vitamins are lost, proteins denatured, etc etc etc. You lose a lot of the good stuff. If you even just feel the energy of unpasteurized honey vs pasteurized, pasteurized feels sort of flat.
As for the "Geisa" on foods, being one with very different food choices, I just don't see anything else as food, because everything else makes my body slow, my mind dull, and my "vibration" slow and sickly. To me it's like gasing up a car with the super octane vs turpentine. It's a spiritual thing, too, but only because when I eat the way I feel is best for my
body, it is easier to work as a healer and channel and all that good stuff. Others, it's like a comandment. Others, militant ethics. (*shudder* PETA wackos...)
