15 Household Uses for Honey

Help your family thrive with the many uses for honey—this all-natural nectar is a healing powerhouse.


| March/April 2014


Honey is a wonderful tool for healing the body, both inside and out. It is moisturizing, exfoliating, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory: all boons for our skin. Plus it soothes throats, relieves upset tummies and even fights off hangovers. But keep in mind that not all honey can be trusted; for buying tips, read "Bee Aware."

1. Wow wash: For a moisturizing face wash, cleanse your face with honey. It’s very simple. Wet your face, scoop out a little bit of honey and smooth it over your face. It will spread easily. Massage into the skin, then rinse with cold water.

2. Pimple power: Banish unsightly pimples by dabbing just a bit of honey on the blemish. The natural antibodies in honey should help heal the pimple without harsh acne medicine.

3. Hair helper: Make a simple moisturizing hair mask with honey. Smooth honey over the ends of wet hair and let it soak for about 10 minutes. Then simply wash your hair as you normally would.

This was a very well written and informative article that everyone should read. I've been buying raw and unfiltered honey every month. I don't know if we're suppose to mention brands here so I'll just say it's a good company that I trust. The honey comes from Colorado. Making a switch from sugar to using mostly honey took a little easing into but we love it now. The taste of good honey is wonderful and knowing it's filled with good things for the body is heartwarming. I look forward to trying all these tips.
