Household uses for honey

Honey is amazing for healing the body inside and out with its moisturising , exfoliating, anti inflammatory and antibacterial properties. It soothes throats, helps upset tummies and fights off hangovers!! Here are a few of the ways to use honey in your every day life.

For your cough…
It has been shown in numerous studies that honey may be more effective than your usual cough suppressant dextromethorphan. Take a spoonful to ease your cough, remember though, honey is not for infants!

For a better sleep…
Honey has been known to absorb the compound tryptophan, making us sleepy, try a spoonful about an hour before bed.

For those spots that just wont go…
This is the easiest one! Dab a bit of honey on our spot or blemish, the natural antibodies in the honey will help heal the pimple without harsh medication. If you apply a face treatment with just honey for two weeks your spots will be gone!

For a face wash…
This wash will moisturise and cleanse your face, just wet your face, take a small amount of honey and smooth I over your face. Massage into your skin then rinse with cold water.

For your hair…
This will help moisturise your hair. Smooth some honey over the ends of your hair, leave for about 10 minutes and then wash as usual.

More hair help…
This technique will help smooth fly away hair and increase shine. Mix a teaspoon of honey with 4 cups of warm water and pour over your hair, do not rinse out.

For burns…
Honey is incredible for burns due to its anti-inflammatory properties, it will heal and help to lessen the scarring. For minor burns place burn under cold running water, or if this isn’t possible place a cold compress on it. Dab the area dry, apply honey and cover with a gauze, refresh this daily.

More first aid…
Honey is a natural antibiotic and can help heal all wounds. Professor Molan from the University of Waikato honey research laboratory says honey is more affective than most antiseptic creams on the market! Dab honey on a clean wound and apply a dressing, changing daily.

For sore throats…
Simple, take a teaspoon full of honey! Try to avoid drinking anything for half an hour afterwards.

For your bath…
By adding a tablespoon of honey and 10 drops of lavender oil to your bath you will help to moisturise your skin and ease tense muscles.
