Its strong, fibrous stems have been used in textiles and binding, and the honey-like nectar is enjoyed by children of certain cultures as a sweet treat from Mother Nature! Greek monasteries have been making use of honeysuckle’s familiar fragrance for years, creating soaps and other pleasantly scented toiletries from the plant.
