The 3 types of honey available in my house.
From the leftmost side, the bottled Royal honey from GiantBeez.
The middle one is the honey comb from GiantBeez (per pack is RM30, bought it from a kiosk in Jusco Taman Equine).
The rightmost bottle of honey is from the East coast, bought by a relative (thanx a lot), Tualang honey.....which is made by bees that live in Tualang tree (and they said from Tualang flowers).
The GiantBeez Royal Honey in the bottle is quite syrupy and sweet. For coughing, my sister mix a tablespoon of honey with a mug of warm water. (Actually, there are a lot of varieties sold like the Royal Honey, Propolis and Super Honey that are mixed with other stuffs and thus target different health issues)
The Tualang honey is syrupy and a bit sourish. When you open the bottle, there is a bit of 'pop' due to gases released by the honey itself. For my coughing, I mix a tablespoon of Tualang honey with juice of a thin lime.
The honeycomb is really fun! The consistency of the honey itself is very dense, syrupy and smells like chrysanthemum tea. It is not really as sweet as the bottled one and the comb itself is really chewy. We eat it like chewing gum. ;)
Since I always forgot to take my homemade medicine, so my coughing is still there, but thank God...not as bad as before.
So, for you out there, you can try to get some honey and try these out too.
Some linx for you to explore :
(Not to ask you to buy and they do not pay me for any advertisement)

The race of man shall perish, but the eyes
Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.

And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
