Honey in Ancient Cultures: In Ancient Egypt, honey was revered as a gift from the heavens and was a staple in love potions. The Egyptians, known for their advanced knowledge of medicine and chemistry, often incorporated honey in concoctions to enhance romance and intimacy.

Clear example is from deciphered papyri from Egypt dating third century A.D. containing magic spells. On the back of that papyrus is a list of recipes. One recipe says that a combination of honey and droppings from a bittern bird, used in a way that isn't specified, will "promote pleasure," according to the ancient text.
