Warm milk, honey and memories of my childhood #ad


Some of my fondest memories of bedtime as a child consist of putting on snuggly warm pyjamas, cuddling with my mom and sipping away at a cup of warm milk with honey in it. It was the magic potion of my childhood. It would lull me into a blissful slumber with my eyes shutting often before the mug was done. The last sip would always be the yummiest as that’s where tiny bits of honey would settle. When I was younger, my dad would sometimes scoop me up and carry me to bed where I would drift off to sleep before I knew it.

It wasn’t until I was a bit older that I learnt of many of the health benefits of honey. After I had my son, my step mom introduced me to warm milk with honey, a pinch of turmeric and a mixture of ground almonds and cardamom. It would instantly give me energy and helped me gain back my strength much faster than the first time around. It was an old family recipe from the Indian sub-continent. Generations of women had used it to heal and recover after childbirth.

Over the years, I have switched up the recipe, sometimes substituting cow’s milk for almond milk or lactose free if that’s what we had on hand but the honey has always been a must. It didn’t take much, just under a teaspoon would do the trick.

There have been times where I’ve been away at conferences, on press trips or visiting family but after a long day, nothing hits the spot quite like some steamed milk with honey. I’ve had friends poke fun at it, surprised that as an adult I’ve continued with the ritual of warm milk and honey before bed but it never bothers me. I know a good thing when I see it.

I was recently introduced to an incredible company selling medicinal honey. I know that honey has been used for centuries for natural remedies and a plethora of purposes but I didn’t realize just how transformative it truly was until I read up on Onuku Manuka Honey.

  1. I’ve heard a lot about the health benefits and taste of Manuka honey, but I’ve never tried it. I really need to give it a try.

  2. I love honey in herbal tea, and sometimes I even add a dash of apple cider vinegar in a mixture of honey and hot water. I use honey pretty frequently but haven’t tried manuka honey yet. I’ll have to give it a try.

  3. Warm milk and honey was a treat in our home when I was a child! There are so many good things about honey. I haven’t tried Manuka honey, but I want to soon.

  4. I know that honey is a common ingredient when it comes to home remedies but I’ve never really given it a try aside from sore throat. I think these are awesome benefits and we should totally take advantage of it!

  5. Honey is so good for you. I don ‘t use it as often as I’d like. I need to start using it more. It tastes so good too.

  6. In the United States we don’t seem to use honey as often as some other cultures. When I traveled through Turkey, we had fresh honey at our breakfast buffet every morning. It may be something I need to give a little more consideration.

  7. I’ve heard of it. I think a company uses it in their skincare. Now Im going to try warm milk and honey. Thanks. – yolonda

  8. Honey has so many amazing benefits!! I have a friend who eats a spoonful every day and his heath is in tip top shape. I love using it in my homemade beauty products!!

  9. I have heard so many great things about honey. I’ve used it for coughs, sore throats and in hot tea when I get laryngitis.

    I need to try it on my face now.

  10. I have had a warm glass of milk sometimes but never heard of putting honey into it, it sounds wonderful though. I am going to try that next time I can’t sleep well. I use honey for a sore throat and when I am sick. I did not know of some of the other uses! The Manuka honey sounds amazing, going to check out their website now!

  11. Honey is so helpful especially for the kids when they have a cough. Cough meds for kids scare me so I always try to find something natural like honey. Italways works so well. too. Thank you for all of this information.

  12. My father told me about the wonders of Manuka honey. He was trying to find this soap made with it for the longest time, but I think they stopped making it. I LOVE ‘real’ honey…the unprocessed honey kind…you can really tell the difference.

  13. I have heard of organic and local honey, but never medicinal honey. I would use it for a cough remedy and relieving gastritis. My husband would use it for his rosacea.

  14. Honey is always my go to for a natural solution to health problems! Colds I drink honey and lemon hot water, allergies I eat a spoonful of local honey. This product sounds great! I can’t wait to try it!

    1. This brand is especially potent. It has specific health benefits not found in traditional honey. It’s been a complete game changer using Onuku Manuka Honey
