Energized Honey with Black Seed, Ginseng, Cinnamon and Bee Pollen

Here is another recipe for energizing honey.  Honey and black seeds were considered to be the best foods to take 1400 years ago in the life and times of Prophet Mohammad, Peace be Upon Him.  Some scholars have attributed honey as being the blessed seed that was spoken of not just the black seeds themself.

The original recipe came from an herbalist who had the basics down, but in my opinion it was not tweeked properly.  I have revamped the recipe to be more beneficial and healthier. My original energizer honey is much cheaper than this version, but this version has some of the healthiest ingredients possible for energy.  I will be posting my cheaper version at the bottom of this article.

Benefits of Honey

I could rave on honey for the next 50 years.  Honey is the base of all healing in my book.  Prophet Mohammad, PBUH, spoke about honey being a cure for the stomach and recommended its use for this ailment.  He also recommended taking a spoon of honey with water before breakfast.

Honey is also cut for cuts.  Using honey on a cut will help heal the wound.  There is however a huge difference in the many types of honey available.  Manuka Honey is one of the most famous honeys available.

Things to consider when buying raw honey is to make sure it is unpasterurized honey and not flash pasteurized at all.    Honey must be purchased in a jar and not in plastic containers.  Honey may absorb parts of the plastic if stored in plastic containers and become toxic.

Other benefits of honey are:
  • Natural energy booster
  • Treatment for all stomach ailments
  • Helps in the immediate recovery of cuts and burns
  • Used to help people lose weight
  • Will increase your immune system
  • Insomnia treatments
  • Hangovers can be remedies with honey

Bee Pollen Should be in Everyone's Diet:

I first heard of bee pollen on Curezone and was shocked at the man benefits it has.  I have thus tried to convince people in Jordan to get started on this delicacy of natural treatment and most here just frown.  It is a powerhouse of vitamins and nutrients.  You must start out slow with bee pollen, such as 1/2 teaspoon of ground and then work yourself up.  It does not take a lot to be beneficial.  Like honey, you should look for bee pollen in glass jars.

Here's a book on bee pollen, honey and royal jelly User's Guide to Propolis, Royal Jelly, Honey, & Bee ... by C. Leigh Broadhurst for $5.95.

Why Should Ginseng be Included in My Recipe?

Ginseng can be used several ways in this mixture.  You can use the liquid vials of ginseng, the capsules or the powder, which I prefer.  The powder is not cheap and should be refrigerated once opened.  Ginseng powder is easily mixed and works well.  Look for a good quality brand.  Look for either Chinese, Siberian or American.  You do not need a lot but for 1/2 kilo of honey, plan on using two tablespoons.

Some of the benefits of ginseng are: Diabetes, insomnia, stress, rheumatism, headache, colds, protects the liver, increases the immune system, used for cancer treatment and is effective in reducing cholesterol.

Energy Packed Honey

  • 1/2 kilo of raw unpasteurized honey
  • 2 Tablespoons of cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon of ginger
    2 Tablespoons of Bee Pollen
    2 Tablespoons of Ginseng powder or one vial or 12 capsules
  • 2 teaspoons of black seed oil (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons of royal jelly (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons of turmeric mixed with black pepper and calenudula

One jar of royal jelly will last you for a year, as you only need a bit to add to your treatment.  The original recipe had no royal jelly, but I love the stuff and it adds a lot to a healthful blend.  It is optional as is the black seed oil, but I prefer to cut off my left hand than to avoid black seed in my life.

Place all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix together thoroughly.  Place in a sealed jar, not plastic and take 1/2 teaspoon to one teaspoon daily.  More than that is not necessary, but if you like enjoy more.
