Honey is a sweet thick syrup produced by honeybees. Bees deposit nectar into honeycombs and seal them with beeswax to preserve the honey. Honey is made up of a solution of sugars and minerals in water, and is twice as sweet as sugar. Honey has a fairly long shelf-life, microbial activity is restricted and the product is stable for many months.

Honey has long been used as medicine. Africa has a wealth of traditional knowledge of apitherapy, the healing properties of bee products. Honey has antibiotic properties: it is a sterile solution with a high sugar concentration that prevents the growth of microorganisms.  It is highly acidic. It contains enzymes which produce hydrogen peroxide that kills bacteria. Honey is good for healing wounds and for skin treatment.
