They’re so good for you that simply adding them to your water will yield positive results. Not a believer? Neither was Crystal Davis, until she gave it a try.

This is her story.


Crystal Davis embarked on a 12 month journey, during which she drank fresh honey lemon water every morning.

She wanted to confirm for herself if there truly was any benefits to this drink. At the end of the experiment, Crystal was simply amazed by how much her health had improved!

In her experiment, Crystal used raw honey and fresh lemon juice instead of buying artificially pre-made packets.


After 1 year, despite having skipped a few days, she was pleased to report that the experiment was a success.

This is what she had to say in her own words;

1. I have not had a cold, flu or gastro illness in the entire year.


Literally. On reflection, this actually blows my mind. All of my life I’ve been a serial tonsillitis-getter, and always seemed to pick up whatever was going around. With a large family, including lots of little ones, there is always someone around who has the latest bug. I am happy to report I no longer catch them, even when it rips through the rest of the gang.

Confession: there were days I skipped totally, and though I have felt very early signs of sickness sometimes (too many sneezes in a day, run down, extra tired, suspicious tummy rumblings) nothing at all has materialised. Sure I’ve had tired days and a few headaches, but nothing to write home about.

As soon as I got back on the regime these stopped happening, and I now absolutely swear by honey/lemon—to the point I’ve become prematurely old-aged and carry them both in my bag when I stay at friend’s places or hotels. (Should I be worried I’m also proud of this?)


2. I no longer need coffee and have become a {gasp} morning person.

The zing I get from lemon and honey first thing in the morning has become something I crave, and doesn’t leave me with headaches or the dreaded caffeine comedown. I also have more energy for longer and am quicker to smile in the a.m.

It used to take me at least an hour to open my second eye and stop grunting at people like a cavewoman, but I’m now annoying the people that love me in new and wonderful ways like throwing deep philosophical questions at them as I bound into the kitchen. I’ll need to find a new challenge soon though if I am to keep them on their toes.


3. The people around me are becoming more healthy—the biggest reward.

So this has taken the longest: to convince my family that honey and lemon can help them prevent some of their man-flu incidents.

But after playing nurse and administering my magic potion to them when they are at their most desperate, they can finally see its benefits. “Whoa! That helped straight away!” never gets old and reminds me to keep going every morning so I don’t suffer the indignities of needing to be three feet from a toilet at all times, or running through a box of tissues an hour. 


It’s such a lovely feeling to know that I can help my loved ones feel more well through something so simple and available. I have become some kind of one-trick uber-nurse, and that’s awesome.

Her Recipe For Honey Lemon Water

  1. Boil some water.
  2. Pour it into a little mug and set it aside to let it cool a little bit until it’s lukewarm. (You can add cold water to speed up the process)
  3. Squeeze half a lemon into the water (beginners can start with a quarter of a lemon).
  4. Add in the raw, organic, unpasteurized honey. Make sure the water isn’t boiling hot or it will destroy all the good nutrients in the honey.
  5. Enjoy the drink as soon as you wake up.
