Naturally Amazing Raw Honey
Honey has been a vital product for thousands of years. One of the earliest recordings of honey harvesting was on a rock painting in Valencia, Spain, dating back 8,000 years ago. Since then, honey has been used by the Romans to heal their wounds after battles, and buried with pharaohs in Egypt. Surprisingly enough, this honey was preserved and still edible after thousands of years. There's good reason for honey being utilized for all of these years. This golden goodness is not only delicious, but is packed with loads of health benefits too.
Raw honey is honey that is just like it was straight out of the beehive. It is taken directly from the honeycomb. The beekeeper will filter out small pieces of debris, like pollen and beeswax, but otherwise it is kept in its natural state. Raw honey does not go through the pasteurization process.

Raw honey is just another amazing thing that we can thank honey bees for. Unfortunately, honey bees are disappearing rapidly. In fact, the US honey bee population decreased by 30.7% between October 2017 and April 2018. Some solutions that save bees are to:
1. Ban the seven most dangerous pesticides
2. Protect pollinator health by preserving wild habitat
3. Restore ecological agriculture
