About Cox Honeyland found at Smith and Edwards

Brand Spotlight: Cox Honeyland – Why We LOVE Honey

- posted by Jerica Parker

The Cox family has been in the honey business for over 100 years.

Henderson and Marion Cox started in the bee industry in St. George, Utah. Since then, the family has carried the tradition of bee keeping and honey production, and in 1989, Cox Honeyland opened for business. Now, the fourth generation of family is running the business in Logan, Utah, with more things than just honey, including lotions and other food items.

Here at Smith & Edwards, we have proudly carried Cox Honeyland for the past 20 years.

Honey has so many benefits!

Besides being all natural, healthy, yummy and sweet, it makes a great food storage item!

On top of that, there are other cosmetic uses that not many know about.

What’s even better? Finding honey that is harvested locally!

Why is local honey better?

We love the local Cache County honey from Cox Honeyland.

Have you ever had honey that tastes or looks a little different than other jars? Honey bees fly as much as 55,000 miles within a 5 mile radius, all the while collecting nectar from flowers. The nectar gathered from a specific region will give the honey produced a slightly different taste and color. Cox Honeyland honey has three different honey varieties: Clover-alfalfa (lighter color and mild taste), Cache Valley (darker with more flavor), and Mountain Snowberry (mountain wildflower flavor).

So wherever you get your honey from, it will be slightly different than honey from another place.

Fight those allergies!

A benefit of getting local honey is that it is said to help boost immunity for seasonal allergies. Naturally made, honey is healthy for you.

Tip: Have a sore throat? Mix honey with a spoonful of lemon juice in a mug filled with steaming hot water to soothe your throat and relieve congestion.

Pure and Healthy

You can tell honey is pure when it crystalizes. That means that there are no preservatives added to the honey. The great thing is that honey never expires! (Which makes it great as a food storage item!) When it does crystalize, simply place the jar in a pan of warmed water and it will soften back to its smooth texture.

What else?

Honey is great for various different uses, some can be surprising! As a natural sweetener, honey makes a great substitute in recipes for sugar. Using this replacement in some recipes reduces up to half of the sugar a recipHoney massage bars made by Cox Honeyville e calls for.

Cox Honeyland has recipes using honey – View them here!

Honey also has cosmetic benefits. “My dad would have us wash our faces with crystalized honey as kids. When honey crystalizes, it makes a great natural exfoliator”, Maleesa with Cox Honeyland told me. You can also use the beeswax to make your own lip balms, lotions, massage bars, and more.

Now that you know why we love honey so much, it’s time to get your own! Whether it’s for your food storage, cosmetic benefits, or just to enjoy now, local honey is the best!

Simple Christmas Gifts at Smith & Edwards

Simple Christmas Gifts

- posted by Rose Marion

It’s so easy to turn the holidays into stress and chaos! I know a family that had to put a limit on presents for the kids because it turned into a competition for all the aunts and uncles! And another family stopped hosting because it was so challenging accommodating the entire family as it grew – just became too much, especially with the winter travel.

For a lot of people, a simpler, slower pace is ideal for the holidays. That’s what they should be about, anyway – spending real time with loved ones, taking pictures for the scrapbooks, enjoying each other’s company, and celebrating the season.

With none of the stress and running-around that the media tells us we need to get caught up in.

So if you’re looking to have a simple Christmas this year, we’re right there with you. You’ll find frugal and simple Christmas gifts for the most important people in your life at Smith & Edwards in Farr West and SmithandEdwards.com.

Take a look…

For Him: Carhartt Jackets

Guys, it’s straightforward. You know if you want outdoor or work clothes that hold up for years, you go to Carhartt. So ladies, if you want to give your husband or your father something he can really use, get him a Carhartt jacket.

Carhartt Quick Duck Jefferson Traditional Jacket, $119.99.

For Her: Kitchen Basics

Some cooks like and welcome help from their guests when they’re cooking for the holidays. Others of us would rather the guests stay in the front room and visit, while we try to calculate the turkey or cry over onions!
