Homegrown Collective always includes information on every item, why it was selected, it’s benefits, and recipe ideas and tips. This time they included info on the 6 Benefits of Honey. I didn’t know you could use honey to treat cuts, burns or scrapes – apparently it acts as an antibiotic ointment!

Organic Dried Rose Hips

Harry’s Local Bee Pollen – Value $12.99

Ball Pint Jar

Thanks to the Homegrown Collective I’m building quite an impressive glass jar and bottle collection! Also, I didn’t even know you could eat Bee Pollen (I learn something new every month thanks to this box) but not only can you eat it – it has more protein than pretty much any other food!

From the Homegrown Collective:

Bee Pollen contains much more protein per opunce than any other natural food. It is considered one of nature’s most nourishing foods. It caontains nearly all nutrients required by humans. It aids in digestion. Bee pollen is also believed to reduce stress and ti increase stamina and alertness.

Got allergies? Bee pollen has long been known as a natural remedy. Simply eat a few granules each day to build up a tolerance, increasing the amount over time.

Harry, however, recommends bee pollen for more energy. He says that ounce for ounce, bee pollen is higher in protein than meat. He suggests customers undertake the following test: Consume a teaspoon a day for seven days and see whether your energy level isn’t completely transformed.

Ok, now on to the giveaway! One lucky reader will win the upcoming March Homegrown Collective box. (I will contact the winner via email so please use an email you check frequently).
