7 Awesome Ways To Use Honey
- Shine & Condition your Hair
Add one teaspoon of honey to a half cup of warm milk and mix well. Then simply apply all over the hair from root to tips and rinse with shampoo afterward. Not only will it make your hair smoother and more manageable. It’ll also soothe a dry scalp.
- Soothe Chapped Lips
First, mix a little brown sugar with some olive oil and use it to “scrub” lips, which will help to exfoliate any flakes of skin. Next, mix a teaspoon of plain yogurt with a half teaspoon of honey. Spread over lips, and let sit for 5 minutes. Rinse with a warm washcloth, pat dry and smooth on some super-emollient lip balm. Voila — smooth lips!
- Face Mask
Honey can effectively treat conditions like acne, rosacea and eczema, while coconut oil is great for relieving dry or irritated skin, as well as for reducing wrinkles. Combining them leads to super soft, clear, hydrated skin!
Mix one tablespoon coconut oil and one tablespoon raw honey in a small bowl with a spoon until it’s well combined. Then, apply the mixture to your face and neck with your fingertips — gently — as sometimes honey can crystalize and be rough on your skin. Let it sink in for up to 20 minutes, then rinse it off with lukewarm water. Simple, easy and effective!
- Wash your face with Honey
Put a dollop of honey in the palm of your hand and add a little warm water. Massage the slightly diluted honey over your face. Rinse with lukewarm water and enjoy a clean and moisturized complexion! (Straight honey also makes a great facial mask to add moisture to dry or windburned skin. Just leave it on for about 20 minutes while you relax. Then rinse.)
- Soothe a cough
Honey works as well as many over-the-counter cough medicines to soothe and quiet a cough. You can take it “straight” or mix it with a little lemon juice and coconut oil, for an even more effective cough quieter. So be sure to pack some honey in your first-aid kit for your next road trip, hike, or camping expedition, and add a jar to your bathroom beauty stash! Who knew that honey is for more than just satisfying a sweet tooth!
- Natural hair remover
Mix one tablespoon of honey with one tablespoon of lemon juice and three tablespoons of brown sugar in a microwave-safe bowl. Warm slightly in the microwave and allow the mixture to cool, then apply to facial hair using a popsicle stick. Place a small piece of muslin cloth over the area and rub slightly. Apply a small amount of tea tree oil to the area where you removed the hair.
- Create a simple energy boost
If you start to feel a little lethargic towards the end of your day, a tablespoon of raw honey is just what you need. According to the American College of Nutrition, honey (unlike sugar) provides a nutritious carbohydrate that the body can use for immediate energy. When you are feeling low, take a teaspoon in a cup of warm water mixed with lemon or a scoop right from the jar!
