A natural alternative
Thank you so much for “The Healing Power of Honey” (EQUUS 440). As a horse owner and a beekeeper, I am so grateful to have this information made available to the general public.
I keep medicinal honey in the house for the humans and in the barn for the humans and animals. I use it for very minor scrapes on the horses and goats and would definitely consult my veterinarian before using it on a large wound.
I first apply the medicinal honey, then cover it with my hand and spray regular bug spray around the area to deter flying insects, including bees. I have had really great success with minor scrapes on the horses.
Thank you for putting this information out there at a time when bacteria are becoming resistant to antibiotics and people are becoming allergic to those same drugs. Bees are an amazing local resource to keep us all healthier. At Serendipity Farm we love our bees as much as we love our animals! Marcia Taylor North Dighton, Massachusetts
