Honey, good for more than eating :)

We all know that honey tastes great but did know that honey has many more uses as well?  You can sooth a sore throat, soften your skin, get a great facial, and even clean a wound.

Here's some great uses for honey you may not know about.

  • Give yourself a facial - rub some honey onto your face, focusing on the dry areas, then rinse, no need for soap!  Did you know honey also helps to fight acne?!  

  • Get baby sift skin - pour 1/4 cup honey with a few drops of olive oil in your bath water.  

  • Make an amazing gel for curly hair - Mix honey with hair conditioner!  1/3 honey and 2/3 conditioner, use more or less honey till you get the consistency you want.  The runnier your conditioner the more honey you will need.  Don't use more than about 50/50 though or it will dry sticky.  (and trust me, don't use straight honey!) 
  • Clean cuts and scrapes - Honey is very anti- microbial and anti-fungal.  Place a dab of it on a cut before bandaging. 
  • Get an energy boost!  - just a spoon full of honey goes a long way in the mornings, it's also very good for your health and is said to boost your metabolism!  :) 

  • Sooth a sore throat - warm a tablespoon of honey and a table spoon of fresh lemon juice, it's great for a sore throat and helps to ease coughing too.
