A spice with a long history of traditional use, Ginger has a multitude of beneficial actions. It stimulates circulation, giving you a lovely inner glow in cold winter weather – and as it dilates the peripheral blood vessels it brings warmth to chilly hands and feet. Used during the season of colds and ‘flu’, it may help to dry up mucus and relieve coughs. Ginger is well-known as a digestive remedy, it soothes indigestion and can relieve flatulence and colic. It has traditionally been used to ease travel sickness and some forms of nausea. Ginger relieves muscle spasm and may help to reduce the discomfort of painful periods experienced by some women. Sufferers of osteoarthritis may find ginger beneficial due to its reputed anti-inflammatory properties.
Please note:- People with inflamed or ulcerated digestive tracts and those with acid reflux should seek advice from a trained medical practitioner before using ginger. Those taking blood thinning medication should also seek professional advice before consuming ginger on a regular basis.
Honey Lady honey is sourced from local South Australian beekeepers. The majority is sourced from the Fleurieu Peninsula, but it is seasonal and dependent upon availability. The beekeepers their honey is sourced from do not use chemicals or antibiotics to treat their bees, hives or equipment. Quite simply it is honey as nature intended.
Raw Honey will naturally crystallise and track (whitening of the honey) over time. This is an indication that your honey is raw as the enzymes that cause the candying process are still active. To return your honey to a liquid state, simply place your jar in warm water. All raw honey will have a top layer of particles of wax, propolis and bee pollen, another indication that the honey is undamaged by processing.
The differences between raw and pasteurised honey are substantial. Raw honey is an alkaline-forming food that contains natural vitamins, enzymes, powerful antioxidants and other important natural nutrients. These are the very nutrients that are destroyed during the heating and pasteurisation process. In fact, pasteurised honey is equivalent to, and just as unhealthy as, eating refined sugar.
Raw honey has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties. It promotes body and digestive health, is a powerful antioxidant, strengthens the immune system, eliminates allergies, and is an excellent remedy for skin wounds and all types of infections. Raw honey’s benefits don’t stop there. Raw honey can also stabilize blood pressure, balance sugar levels, relieve pain, calm nerves, and it has been used to treat ulcers. Raw honey is also an expectorant and anti-inflammatory and has been known to effectively treat respiratory conditions such as bronchitis and asthma.
