It promotes body and digestive health, is a powerful antioxidant, strengthens the immune system, eliminates allergies, and is an excellent remedy for skin wounds and all types of infections. Raw honey's benefits don't stop there. Raw honey can also stabilize blood pressure, balance sugar levels, relieve pain, calm nerves, and it has been used to treat ulcers.

Raw apple cider vinegar (ACV) has been used for thousands of years to naturally treat all kinds of different ailments. ACV has powerful antibacterial and anti-infection properties. It can help cure a sore throat, clear up acne, stimulate weight loss, and even act as a shampoo. ACV can be ingested daily for maximum preventative health benefits. It is quite acidic, and the taste may take some getting used to. Combine with our delicious antioxidant-packed raw honey, however, and you'll be craving the taste of ACV in no time. 

Recipe:

• 2 glasses of water (15-30 oz.)
• 4 Tbsp. Bragg – Apple Cider Vinegar (or another raw ACV)
• 4 Tbsp. lemon juice
• 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
• 1 pinch cayenne pepper (optional)
• 4 Tbsp. Love A Bee raw honey (we recommend Light Amber for a mild taste, or San Joaquin Flame if you really can't stand the taste of vinegar)

Makes: 4-8 cups

Dissolve cinnamon, cayenne, Love A Bee honey, and lemon in hot water (stir well). Add apple cider vinegar to mixture. Consume right away for a hot tea, or cool and store in airtight jar for an iced detox beverage ready at any time. The beverage will be rather concentrated, so drink small cups or mix in water if it is too strong for your liking. Will last for up to a week in the refrigerator.
