Honey to sweeten my mood!

My brothers latest interest is Bee Keeping. He has been talking about it for a couple of years but he often does this! I didn't really believe him when he told me he had acquired some bees, he said that the hives were situated in different places in our area this is ssomething to do with pollen and flowers \  foliage I think.

He seems quite knowledgeable as he has been on a "bee keepers" course at college recently. Anyhow he sent some honey over for us and I was amazed at it, I just like to look at the delicate honeycombs, the smell is beautifully aromatic. I am not a lover of honey too sweet for me and I really don't want to destroy it as it is a work of art. It would be lovey to make something with it like soap or bubble bath but I don't know where to start.
 Maybe I should have a little honey to sweeten my mood, I'm currently working day shift & night shifts all mixed into the same week. So when you finish a 11.5 hr night shift (that I only get paid 10 hrs for) the day that you would sleep on is actually your day off. I slept all day yesterday feeling ill, and tonight I go back and do another two nights, so I must try and sleep at some point or I will be ill with tiredness at work during the night. I cant describe how this feels!!! Sorry for moaning.
