Some Honey, Honey?

Posted by BBN on 9/1/2012 to Do It Yourself Recipes
As I made my daily green tea with honey and lemon drink this morning I began to think about the inevitable fact that winter is just around the corner.  Winter is a time for hot tea, coffee beverages, hot chocolate and the occasional hot toddy.  Iíve found that honey blends perfectly with all of these drinks.  But I also began to think about all the other things I use this golden delight for.  Not only do I put it to my favorite drinks, soap recipes and food recipes but I put it on my body quite often.  I never really thought about how much I use it or why I seem to always have it stocked in my pantry until today.

Skin Benefits of Honey

Honey is a highly concentrated sugar solution produced by honeybees. Itís color and flavor depend upon the type of flower used by the bees in their honey making process.  As I described above, honey is commonly used as a substitute for sugar or a flavor enhancer.  But aside from that, is honey good for your skin?

Honey is a natural product that doesnít contain any chemicals or man-made elements.  It has been used for thousands of years all around the world in nutrition, medicine and skin care.  As far back as the days of Cleopatra, honey and milk were used to promote youthful skin.  Scientists are also researching itís use in modern medicine for skin healing purposes.

Try Some Honey, Honey

Here are the main reasons to try some honey:

  • it is natural and free from chemicals, especially when you buy organic
  • due to its high content of nutrients it provides great nutrition to your skin
  • as a humectant it acts as a moisturizer hydrating and softening the skin
  • it has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties and can be used as a natural antiseptic
  • its antioxidants eliminate free radicals from the body, protects from the damage of the sunís rays and supports the skinís ability to rejuvenate and refresh depleted skin
  • in wound management it can stimulate and speed up healing

Honey On Your Face

For an easy face mask, it only takes two ingredients.  Organic Honey and one other favorite from your kitchen.  I like to use a mashed Fresh Avocado or Ground Oatmeal.  Milk also works well as does, an Egg or Plain Yogurt.  Warn the Organic Honey and mix it with your other ingredient until you have a smooth paste.  Gently apply to your clean face and neck keeping away from the eyes.  Relax and leave the mask on for 15 minutes.  Wash it off with cool water.  Pat your skin dry with a clean towel. Lastly apply a moisturizer, to seal in the water.

Honey In Your Hair

Combine 1/2 cup of Honey with 1-2 Egg Yokes and 1 Tbsp Olive Oil in a cup.  Massage into clean, damp hair and let sit for 20-30 minutes.  For a deep condition, apply a plastic cap and sit under a hood dryer for 20 minutes.  Rinse with warm water.
