Honey & milk are excellent offerings to gods & spirits & appropriate to leave at a grave site. 

Some ancient cultures used honey in embalming procedures. 

In kitchen magic, use honey in dishes to bring about sweetness, fertility, or prosperity. 

Honey is sacred to Aphrodite, the goddess of love & beauty.

In Hoodoo & folk magic, honey is used to sweeten someone’s feelings towards you. 
Honey is poured into a jar or saucer on top of a slip of paper containing the person’s name. 
A candle is placed in the saucer & burned until it goes out on its own. 
In another variation, the candle itself is dressed with honey.

Add some into a bath scrub for a ritual bath prior to a working for love or romance, or anoint a candle with it when you're doing candle magic. 

Honey can be symbolically used to stick things together. It can be used in binding spells, adding stability to relationships & put on poppets. It’s good for binding spells because it can be undone fairly easily too. 
If you want to do a honey binding on a couple - or even on two friends who are struggling with their friendship - you can use poppets with a layer of honey between them & then wrapped with a cord. Because honey does not solidify, you can always separate the two poppets later with minimal disruption.
