Natural honey. that is honey that has not been heat treated to keep it runny, is great for all sorts of bites and injuries. It is hygroscopic which means it absorbs water without which bacteria can't live. It's also the best way to cover the pheromone from a bee sting so the other bees don't sting; the beekeepers favourite saying "The first sting is the worst one" is because the pheromone released alerts all the others!

So glad she is OK.

Just came across this thread... Glad Toffee is ok. Definitely very lucky, but I have to admit that I am amazed at how resilient these tough little cookies can be!
