Alfalfa honey, also known as lucerne honey is a variety of honey made from the nectar and pollen of Medicago sativa flowers. The alfalfa plant is a legume, related to beans and peas, and is primarily used as a high-protein feed for livestock. The honey obtained from its flowers is a sought-after variety with impressive health benefits. It boasts a probiotic action, antiseptic and antibacterial properties, anti-acne benefits, helps maintain normal blood sugar levels, manage hypoglycemia and is a great natural remedy for skin problems, cough and sore throat.

Great day trip to @thegentlebarn - just getting away & appreciating animals. BTW yesterday was magical at @northcentralshelter with some longtime residents finding furever homes, as well as many other successes. But those are another stories.
My favorite moment at The Gentle Barn today, had to be regarding the biggest cow, who I was instantly drawn to (named Forgiveness). I had been the first patron/guest to brush him that morning… And while I was brushing him he leaned toward or against me. I promised him I’d come back later in the day. Before we left. •••
When we went back, hours later Fe’ asked me if I’d like another picture with him, but since it was so busy at that time, I just thought “Nah, there are too many people around him.” And then next thing we see, just like that… Forgiveness started walking toward me leaving the other people behind and stopping right in front of me. As if to say, “Come on man, let’s take those pictures.”
I guess my second favorite thing was meeting Caesar, a retired movie horse. Somehow I felt like I could relate to him.
uh-huh honey 🍯⠀
one use and I’m already hooked on the @briogeo don’t despair, repair! honey moisture mask 🤤 fun fact: when my dad retired he decided to take up bee keeping (standard retirement hobby, amiright?) so here are some fun facts about why honey rocks from a beekeeper’s daughter:⠀
🐝 besides all of the good things you get from eating it, honey is also a natural humectant (aka retains moisture) ⠀
🐝 honey is an emollient (aka seals in the moisture) and has rich antioxidant properties⠀
🐝 honey can promote cell growth, and can be used for wound healing and hair growth⠀
There’s so much more, but moral of the story is honey is pretty SWEET, isn’t it?! Yeah- you didn’t think you were gonna get out of here without a bad pun, did you? 😉 I love that @briogeo has ethically sourced organic honey for this mask and is supporting small-scale farmers integrate beekeeping into their practices. SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL BEEKEEPER AND #savethebees ! And use this hair mask, bc is smells amazing and my hair is soft as silk now⠀
*kindly gifted, but if you had to listen to my dad talk about bees as much as I do, you’d have your own opinions too
