People have been using honey for its antifungal and antibacterial properties for centuries. Egyptians, Romans and Greeks have all left records and mentions of how it was used to heal and cure. Want to know more about it? Here are 9 ways in which honey can be great for you:
Those who love home remedies probably know that honey can’t miss from your pantry. It retains moisture, and makes for a great ingredient in any face mask. You can use it on your hands, face, or entire body after taking a shower.
The health benefits of honey include a very light bleaching effect. A regular use of it on scars can dramatically reduce how visible they are!
Natural Hair Conditioner
Have dandruff issues or an itchy scalp? Applying honey and water to your hair after washing it will help with healing the light skin lesions on your head, reducing hair loss and dandruff after a few weeks of treatment.
The bleaching effect can also be used to naturally lighten your hair’s color. Use it as a balm, and keep it in pose for a couple of hours with a damp, hot towel while you enjoy a hot cup of tea.
The antioxidants in honey help wipe our free radicals. A tablespoon a day can keep the wrinkles at bay! Consider eating a healthy spoonful of honey every morning to enjoy its anti aging properties.
Other than acting as a great skin moisturizer, honey also helps with eczema and psoriasis. If your skin is dry and tends to flake, it could use a healthy natural pack.
Don’t forget to apply a tablespoon of honey to your dark circles a couple of times per week! It helps with making them slowly fade out, and makes your skin glow.
Wether you’re an adolescent or an adult, you could be struggling with acne. If so, try applying some honey; its slight acid PH will help killing off bacteria which cause pimples and breakouts.
Finally, it can act as a makeshift vaccine. Raw honey contains a very small amount of pollen, and consuming it regularly can improve your tolerance to seasonal pollen allergies!
