I love me some honey!

I cannot remember a time I didn't use honey. My nana was a lover of honey, and I have been ever since I was a kid. I remember sitting around on the lanai at my grandparents house eating saltines crackers with honey poured on the top I was so sticky by the end of that lol. I always put it in my tea and generally use it more than I use sugar.
When I was in chorus and musical theater lemon and honey were my best friend for sure.

Last night my little guy got into a coughing fit and had a lot of phlegm that kept getting caught in his throat and making him throw up. I gave him a teaspoon of honey, and he stopped almost instantly.

I use it for my hair to add moisture.

I found some other uses on Mother Nature Network:

Fight insomnia: If you don't have much trouble falling asleep, but tend to wake up in the middle of the night, it could be totally natural (for centuries many people had a two-sleep schedule), or it could be due to stress hormones, adrenaline and cortisol, being out of tune. A bit of salted honey (you need both sweet and salty) can help reset these hormones and get you back to sleep. You only need a small amount (this shouldn't be a snack!), so use a teaspoon or egg spoon to keep yourself from overindulging.

Get rid of acne: Dab a bit of straight honey on your pimple, and let it sit for a half-hour, then gently rinse off. Repeat the next day; this works best for whiteheads.

Make lip balm: It's as simple as combining beeswax, olive oil, cocoa butter and honey (and an essential oil if you like). Recipes online abound, but here's a good one to start with.

Clean cuts: Honey is naturally antimicrobial (that's why it literally lasts forever; it has been found in tombs and such). So slather a bit on scrapes, minor cuts and basic burns, always using a clean implement, of course. Lightly cover the wound — basically you can use honey like a natural antibiotic cream. Skeptical? Here's proof — scientists are actually using the bee product as a potential future source of antibacterial proteins.
