wishing you a happy monday and hope your weekend went ok ! i was shopping online just a month or two ago for a couple of natural beauty care and self care items from an online shop called health post, and found a natural moisturising cream made with manuka honey from a brand called biohoney who are also based in nz (where i am from) 🕊🌸 i was hoping to also buy a new moisturising cream as i often run out quite quickly and a new one could be helpful, and a lot of the notes and reviews about the moisturising cream were extremely positive (often describing how wonderful and gentle and helpful the moisturising cream was for sensitive skin) and often gave the moisturising cream 5 stars ! i chose to also pick up a moisturising cream to try and to share in a post up on care natural b in case it could be helpful, and the moisturising cream by biohoney is called natural vitamin e cream and is noted to be made with collagen and mgo 300 + manuka honey.
Here is a post to share a recipe for summer peaches, with fresh honey and chopped almonds I sometimes make in the summer, when there are a lot of beautiful different kinds of ripe peaches (golden, pink) from countryside orchards 🕊🌸 for the recipe you would just need a couple of ripe peaches, fresh honey and whole natural almonds, and you could also include creamy yoghurt and any other kind of fruit you enjoy, or a different kind of fruit in case you cannot find any peaches close by to where you are (could also include strawberries, watermelon, oranges, bananas, blueberries).
Here is a simple and plant based recipe for fresh strawberries and banana, with honey and chopped almonds 🕊 it is spring, early summer in NZ (where I am from) and the weather is warm and sunny and we just bought a packet of strawberries from our local fruit and veggie market a couple of days ago (our first strawberries of the season) 🌸 strawberries are one of my favourite fruits, and I hope the recipe could be helpful in case you enjoy strawberries a lot too! to make the recipe, you just need fresh strawberries and banana, honey and whole almonds to chop, and you could hopefully find the ingredients for the recipe in your garden and at your local shop or fruit and veggie market 🌸
Here is a lovely and plant based recipe for a sweet smoothie bowl by beautiful Ella Mills, the founder and creative director of Deliciously Ella.

You could also hopefully find all of the ingredients in your garden or at your local shop 🌸
Here is a simple recipe for a raspberry and pear drink, made with fresh pears and raspberries.

Here are a couple of recipes with honey, found in the healthy foods and superfoods book 100 Best Health Foods. I have always loved honey on its own or in a warm lemon, honey and ginger drink, and honey is also one of my favourite ingredients to include in baking or cooking recipes. When I was little I enjoyed watching the bees and honey bees in the garden, and was always curious about where the bees would go after gathering pollen from the flowers, and how the honey was made 🌸
Here is a recipe for a lavender and honey face scrub I used to make when I was studying at University and had an assignment or was feeling a bit worried coming up to exams.

Here is a recipe for a warm lemon, honey and fresh ginger drink my Mum used to make when we were little and had a cold 🍯 I often make the lemon and honey drink when the weather is cooler in the autumn and winter or if I have a cold, as the lemons in the drink are full of vitamin C and the honey helps to soothe a sore throat.
