“Nectar and ambrosia” from the beehive

   According to the ancient Greeks, the gods of Olympus were immortal – because they ate ambrosia and drank – nectar. In the works of Homer it can be read: the nectar is red and looks like a wine. They drank it by mixing with water. It was believed that the constant use of nectar gave immortality, to weak ones – force.

   Avicenna (Ibn Sina) left to posterity two hundred recipes  of medicines made from honey, and in the ancient Indian “Book of Life” was written that milk and honey can extend human life to 500 years! 
The honey is an excellent antiseptic, too, it has been known since ancient times. According to legend, the commander Ptolemy brought safely from Babylon the dead body of Alexander the Great, plunging it into a bath of honey.
