    2- Take plain white paper and put one drop of honey, turn the paper if it is not spreading then honey is pure.

    3- Rub block of salt (not the powder one), and rub it on honey and taste it, if taste is NOT salty then honey is pure.

    4- Put one drop of honey on paper , take pencil and try to make line with honey if it isnt spreading then honey is pure.

    Fe Aman ALLAH,
    jazakallah sis.

    Also found this:

    Honey is a sweet treat. In fact, it is man's oldest sweetener. It can be a good substitute for sugar in our drinks and food. But it is also good for many other things and treating many other conditions. Reliance on commercialized medicines which contains too much chemicals can become hazardous to our health.

    Alhamdullilah, Allah has given us the knowledge that Mother Nature can at least help to ease the pain we are suffering from. Honey is composed of sugars like glucose and fructose and minerals like magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium chlorine, sulphur, iron and phosphate. It contains vitamins B1, B2, C, B6, B5 and B3 all of which change according to the qualities of the nectar and pollen. Besides the above, copper, iodine, and zinc exist in it in small quantities. Several kinds of hormones are also present in it. Approximately one half of the human diet is derived directly or indirectly from crops pollinated by bees.

    Today honeybees are an essential part of a healthy agriculture economy. If you have allergies, honey can be beneficial. If you eat honey that is local to your area, it may prevent your seasonal allergies. Bees use the pollen from local plants and eventually it ends up in your honey. Honey may also be good for your skin. It has the ability to attract water.

    You can use honey instead of alpha hydroxy masks because of its high content of the acid. It is also safe for sensitive skin. You can also use it as a moisturizing mask for your skin as well as your hair. To use it as a conditioner, mix the honey with olive oil. Be sure to wash your hair thoroughly before you go outside. If you have a sore throat, take some honey.Due to its natural anti-inflammatory effect, it will help to heal the wounds more quickly.

    It also has different phytochemicals--chemicals found in plants and different foods--that kill viruses, bacteria, and fungus making it a good substitute for wound dressings. The taste may also take your mind off the pain. There is evidence that honey diluted in water will help with your stomachaches and dehydration.

    Germ-Fighting Properties Do you have a cut? Honey is a natural antiseptic. Medical journals cite more than 600 cases in which honey was employed to treat wounds.By applying honey to your wounds, you prevent infections. Honey contains antimicrobial agents, which prevents infections by killing the bacteria in and around your wounds. When using honey it may help to heat it up before putting it on your wound (caution test the heat before you place it on the wound).Many types of bacteria can’t survive in honey, so wounds heal, swelling eases, and tissue can grow back. Honey may also be effective in the treatment of your ulcers.In Europe, honey has been used internally to help cure ulcers, particularly stomach ulcers. Burns, too, heal better with honey, studies show. The advantage of honey is that it not only prevents infections from occurring, it actually accelerates skin healing.. Since the sugar in honey absorbs water it helps to trap some of the moisture so that the bacteria and other microbes can’t grow as easily as in other food.

    How Does It Help In Healing Wounds? When honey comes into contact with body moisture, the glucose oxidase enzyme introduced to the honey by the bee slowly releases the antiseptic hydrogen peroxide at a sufficient level to be effective against bacteria but not tissue damaging. Not only is honey anti-bacterial, it also draws body fluids and nutrients to the area and so assists cell growth and prevents a scar forming by drying out of the wound. The osmotic action of the honey draws out and provides a film of liquid between the tissues and the dressing, allowing the dressing to be removed painlessly, without tearing of the re-growing cells. There are reports in medical journals of large bed sores, otherwise needing skin grafts, that have healed without scarring after honey treatment. In treating diarrhea, honey promotes the rehydration of the body and more quickly clears up the diarrhea and any vomiting and stomach upsets. The anti-bacterial properties of honey, both the peroxide and non-peroxide, are effective in the laboratory against MRSA strains of bacteria which are notoriously resistant to antibiotics and are sometimes responsible for the closing of hospital wards.

    Other Benefits of Honey

    Easily digested: Because sugar molecules in honey can convert into other sugars (e.g. fructose to glucose), honey is easily digested by the most sensitive stomachs, despite its high acid content. It helps kidneys and intestines to function better.

    Good source of antioxidants: It plays a big role in the prevention of cancer as well as heart disease.

    Has a low calorie level: Another quality of honey is that, when it is compared with the same amount of sugar, it gives 40% less calories to the body. Although it gives great energy to the body, it does not add weight.

    Rapidly diffuses through the blood: When accompanied by mild water, honey diffuses into the bloodstream in 7 minutes. Its free sugar molecules make the brain function better since the brain is the largest consumer of sugar, thus, reduces fatigue.

    Supports blood formation: Honey provides an important part of the energy needed by the body for blood formation. In addition, it helps in cleansing the blood. It has some positive effects in regulating and facilitating blood circulation. It also functions as a protection against capillary problems and arteriosclerosis.

    Does not accommodate bacteria: This bactericide (bacteria-killing) property of honey is named "the inhibition effect". Experiments conducted on honey show that its bactericide properties increase twofold when diluted with water. It is very interesting to note that newly born bees in the colony are nourished with diluted honey by the bees responsible for their supervision - as if they know this feature of the honey.

    Royal Jelly:
    Royal jelly is a substance produced by worker bees inside the beehive. Inside this nutritious substance are sugar, proteins, fats and many vitamins. It is used in problems caused by tissue deficiency or body frailty. It is obvious that honey, which is produced in much higher amounts than the requirements of the bees, is made for the benefit of man. And it is also obvious that bees cannot perform such an unbelievable task "on their own."

      That was probably the UMF +5 or +10. Check the price of UMF +20 or above. I think it was about or over £50 for a tiny jar.

            I have tried the UMF +5 and found it too sweet, so I think the +10 and +20 and beyond will be worse. However, when I had a throught infection, I tried the +5 and it cured me within 2 days!!!

            Good stuff, but sickningly sweet.

              the honey i have now, is very sweet, i squint when i have HALF a teaspoon, let alone a whole teaspoon, very sweet, i have been making it a part of my daily diet lately because im so bad with food, i eat everything im offered or see most of the time, so i need to reel in my lifestyle, more water, veg everyday, workout 3x week etc

              The other thing that drives me to change my lifestyle is the amount of ill and diseased riddled people i have come across in my occupation, these all stem from the kind of lifestyle they lead and what they put into their body, scary stuff.

                  It is a good idea to drink honey in the morning cause your stomach is empty that time.
                  People say not to use a metal spoon with honey cause honey is acidic. But people have been using metal spoon with honey for yeas no problems. I don't find a metal spoon altering the taste of my honey either, nor does it corrode my spoon:D

                    Re: Honey

                    The best honey to eat is honey from your own area. It's particularily good for people with allergies to eat honey bought from the area closest to them. Its also mentioned in the Prophetic Medicine book that its best to eat it from your own area, as the immune boosting properties in the honey will fight the sicknesses and diseases that your body is being attacked by from the area that you live in. Hope that makes sense!

                    Also another thing thats really good to eat with honey, or even without it, is cinnamon. If you mix honey and cinnamon together there is alot of health conditions that it can help...diabetes being one of them, high blood pressure, as well as infertility, and tons of other things too.

                    Going back to the basics is the best thing we can do for ourselves. Why pollute our bodies with chemicals, and all sorts of horrible things when we have the answers in Islam to cure almost anything!!?

                      there's a really great ayurvedic spa near my house, they use hone and milk and water all the time...really good for the skin an yes when boiled for a more liquid form with water honey is good for the hair. From a regular store you can get Burt's Bees Shampoo for like 7 dollars or order it off the internet, the shine is amazing and cleanses the scalp of extra (not good) oil and dryness, and leaves ur scalp producing a god amount of natural oil =)

                          Honey and fructose are both nutritive sweeteners; both contain carbohydrates and calories and can be eaten by people with diabetes, but, as with any carbohydrate-containing food, larger amounts may raise blood sugar levels. High levels of fructose have been known to cause diarrhea and may, in fact, raise the levels of blood fats.

                          Since each person reacts differently to foods containing carbohydrates, your best way of determining the sweetener that's right for you is to test your blood sugar levels before you eat and again two hours later. If you notice a significant increase when you use honey or fructose, try a nonnutritive sweetener instead. This can be a complicated process, and I encourage you to find a registered dietitian in your area who specializes in diabetes to help you plan a diet that meets your individual needs.
