If I could give you a gift… it would be a jar of my honey

If I could give you a gift… it would be a jar of my honey

If I could give you a gift…
“it” would be one of the sweetest and purest food sources on this planet
existing for millions of years, never expiring
“it” would be unpasteurized, unprocessed and as pure as the day it was made
gathered with the utmost care, one flower at a time
“it” is generated by thousands of selfless individuals, who work themselves to death to collect, make and provide it to the rest
one source sustains its entire society
“it” is protected by the ultimate sacrifice of death, if threatened
with up to 1500 exhausting trips to produce one drop
“its” members are harmonious and content in purpose, each with its own collective responsibility
one life, only a few weeks long, equals one teaspoon
“it” naturally has antiseptic, antioxidant and cleansing properties
powerful healing attributes harvested and taken by foreign beings for thousands of years
“it” can be enjoyed in a myriad of varieties, depending on the flora and life around it
graciously shared when respected
“it” fights infection, cures allergies, aids tissue healing, helps reduce inflammation and scarring
treats digestive problems, stomach ulcers, gastroenteritis, high blood pressure, and more
if I could give you a gift..
