Indignant again

I'm finding it difficult to find my way about this site so if my earlier post was sent it was not finished. In fact, hardly started.
I read the natural beauty site and saw that acacia honey was one of the constituents of the face pack recipe.
There are no special qualities of acacia honey for such use, honey is indeed a good ingredient for beauty preparations but you don't need to use an imported honey (acaia honey is not produced in UK). If you need honey for any use at all you should be supporting your local beekeepers or, at least, your country's producers.
Among other benefits this would mean that fossil fuels weren't being used to import heavy jars or other containers.
The only special property of acacia honey is that it does not granulate. Granulation is not a problem in any honey, it can be restored to its runny state by gentle heating.
The best type of honey, of course, is produced by YOU.
Life is too short not to enjoy it.

Welcome to the forum mary.

I understand what you say about using localy produced honey and do agree. I must say that beauty products are not my specilaity so I really do not know much about the use of honey acacia or otherwise. What I do know is that eating local honey helps protect your system agains hay fever.
