Honey And Onion
Raw honey has been used as a folk remedy throughout history and has a variety of health benefits and medical uses. It’s even used in some hospitals as a treatment for wounds. Many of these health benefits are specific to raw, or unpasteurized, honey.
Most of the honey you find in grocery stores is pasteurized. The high heat kills unwanted yeast, can improve the color and texture, removes any crystallization, and extends the shelf life. Many of the beneficial nutrients are also destroyed in the process.
Onions are members of the Allium genus of flowering plants that also includes garlic, shallots, leeks and chives.

Ginger can be used fresh, dried, powdered, or as an oil or juice. It’s a very common ingredient in recipes.
