Honey is a sweet food made by bees as they gather and store nectar from foraged flowers, and has been harvested by humans for thousands of years. It has a distinctive sweet flavour and is often eaten in its raw state or as an ingredient in baking and cooking. Traditionally it has also been used in medicine, and its modern use includes personal care. For topical use, honey has a profile as a soothing antibacterial moisturizer.
