Gorder’s Honey was established in 1992 in Blackfoot, Idaho. In 2015, it was bought by its current owner David Dance where it relocated to its current location in Idaho Falls. In 2017, we are celebrating Gorder’s 25th anniversary by making another transition. In the coming months, we will be rebranding Gorder’s Honey under a new name. Please look for our new Label, Rocky Mountain Honey in stores coming soon. The same great honey and taste with a new updated look.
I have written before about the amazing benefits received by consuming raw honey, but today in honor of a new product coming soon to the Gorder’s Honey Company, soon to be the Rocky Mountain Honey company, let’s talk about the benefits of Cinnamon when mixed with Honey!
Honey has so many great natural properties as a blend of natural sugar, minerals, vitamins, trace enzymes and amino acids that boast many health benefits. As I’ve talked about in the past honey also attracts and retains moisture, which means it can even be used in your beauty routine as a hair conditioner or body scrub when mixed with a few other natural ingredients. But whatever you’re using it for health or beauty reasons, stick to raw, unfiltered, unpasteurized organic honey.
Now cinnamon too has so many great benefits, other than the fact that it is a delicious add-on to toast, oatmeal and desserts. Cinnamon, like honey, has powerful medicinal properties too. This natural spice is loaded with antioxidants and works as an anti-inflammatory in the body to help fight infections and repair tissue damage. It’s been linked with reduced risk of heart disease, reduced cholesterol levels and reduced blood sugar levels. The antifungal and antibacterial properties in the popular spice make it a perfect natural remedy for infections and even bad breath!
On their own, these two ingredients have many uses and boast multiple health benefits. But what happens when you put them together?
Combining just a teaspoon of honey and cinnamon can provide you with a strong mix that battles illnesses and diseases naturally.
If you are battling an inflamed bladder, you can use this natural remedy to help soothe it. Combine 2 tablespoons of cinnamon with 1 tablespoon of honey into a glass of lukewarm water. The mixture will help destroy the bacteria in your bladder that’s causing the infection.
A daily dose of cinnamon and honey can help keep your body healthy and protect against heart disease. Half of a teaspoon of cinnamon mixed with 1 teaspoon of honey in the morning can strengthen the heart, lower cholesterol and help to prevent a heart attack.
The flu and the common cold always seem to creep up, no matter how healthy of a routine you try to keep. To help strengthen your immune system and get rid of your cold or flu faster, combine a little cinnamon with a teaspoon of warm honey. Consume for three days and your illness should subside.
To help with the pain of arthritis naturally, consume a mix of honey and cinnamon each day. Combine 2 teaspoons of honey with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and mix into a cup of warm water. Drink each morning and evening.
If you suffer from high cholesterol, this drink may do the trick. Mix 3 teaspoons of cinnamon with 2 teaspoons of honey into a half liter of water. Drink it throughout the day to help lower cholesterol levels.
For an aching tooth, make a paste of one teaspoon of cinnamon and five teaspoons of honey. Apply to the affected tooth up to three times a day until the pain subsides.
So be on the lookout for our new name and product, the same great raw, natural, and unpasteurized clover honey with a new cinnamon twist. This product is great on bagels, in yogurt or oatmeal, and in so many great baking recipes. And don’t forget to add this product to beauty routine to help give you clear blemish free skin!

Orange blossom honey falls on the sweeter end of the honey spectrum. This variety has a somewhat subtle, citrussy smell and an overall fresh aroma. It tastes surprisingly sweet and has a delicate, slightly acidic flavor, with a taste reminiscent of citrus fruit.
If you enjoy eating orange blossom honey for its unique and delicate flavors, you will be pleased to know that it's more than just a sweet treat. Orange blossom honey, like many other honey varieties, has medicinal properties that support human health and well-being and can be used both internally and externally.
