Uses of Honey

Uses of Honey


Honey cleans and protects, leaving skin soft and supple. It also exfoliates. Honey may be used "as is" to make an easy face mask. Wash your face with warm water to help your pores open, then apply honey while avoiding your eyes. For 15 to 30 minutes, depart. Use a gentle cloth to remove. Use the following formula to make a mask that is more substantial.

Honey and oats mask


1 cup oats

1 teaspoon of honey

1 teaspoon distilled water or rosewater


Oatmeal and honey are blended. Include water or rosewater. Blend well after mixing. Apply the basic honey mask as instructed after washing your face.

Beeswax Lip Balm


Olive or coconut oil, two teaspoons

Beeswax, honey, and four drops of either lemon or peppermint essential oil

Using a Vitamin E capsule

In a double boiler or basin submerged in warm water, combine the oil, honey, and beeswax. (Avoid letting water contact the oil/wax mixture.) Heat wax slowly until it has fully melted. Add the essential oil and vitamin E capsule's contents (to help preserve the lip balm). Mix thoroughly. Allow to cool and harden before pouring into a jar or lip balm tube.

Treatment of Seasonal Allergies

All the floral, polleny sweetness from the region where it was collected is there in local raw honey. Seasonal allergies are frequently helped by regular use of this honey. You can try anywhere from one to three doses each day with 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon per dosage, depending on the severity of the allergies (and your tolerance for sweetness). Another typical suggestion is to consume bee pollen or chew on a piece of honeycomb.

Wound care

Numerous approaches exist for Honey to encourage recovery. Osmotic forces caused by the high sugar and low moisture content suck fluids from whatever it comes into touch with. If the substance is a bacteria, it dries out and perishes.

The same hygroscopic effect—the capacity to absorb and store moisture—allows excess fluids to be moved away from the wound site, reducing edema—the buildup of fluid in tissues—and inflammation.

Additionally, honey's acidity makes it an unfriendly home for microorganisms. Lastly, hydrogen peroxide, a well-known antibacterial, may be found in honey. The enzyme reactivates when the honey is diluted (for example, by moisture from a wound), increasing its antibacterial effectiveness.

Even though the hydrogen peroxide is significantly less concentrated than a typical 3 percent antiseptic solution, the honey continues to function well. The honey is kinder and won't cause tissue damage.
