    Outside of the local allergy effect,
    Honey is basically sugar, so don't kid yourself in that regard.
    Having said that I don't think any artificial sweeteners are really ok, so if you need a dose of sweet, then honey is probably the best choice in my eyes. The primary benefits as a topical dressing to wounds is the glucose content, it provides an energy source as well as killing bacteria mainly because of high glucose concentration de hydrating the bacteria through osmosis and killing them.

    I do use honey quite freely my self and no doubt our ancestors would have gorged on it whenever they had the chance to, so maybe there is a clue there, have a full on desert day sometimes, but not everyday as you'd have to climb a tall tree and risk death for the reward.

      Is this hi grade or the cheap +5 stuff?

      I'v googled this stuff to death and while on paper it's good stuff, there isn't any proven evidence that it does anything over regular honey or other things in healthy diets.
