This book isn’t just a guide to beekeeping or a honey cookbook – it’s both. No other book on the market provides an in-depth review of beekeeping and explains what honey is good for you and how to use it. Beautifully illustrated, Complete and Easy Guide to Beekeeping is perfect for the health conscious person who wants to sweeten up their life by saying no to processed sugars and yes to eating organic, healthy food. This book is the complete ‘honey bee’ resource with general information on bees; a how-to guide to the art of beekeeping and how to set up, care for and harvest your own hives. It also includes tons of fun facts and projects that are beerelated. The second half of the book is the complete guide to honey. It reviews the different types of honey and their health effects and provides hundreds of ideas for using honey in recipes, cosmetically in facemasks and shampoos, and for medicinal uses.
