10 Uses for Honey Your Doctor Doesn’t Want You to Know

5. Sore Throat Relief

Honey is an excellent thing to use to help relieve a sore throat! Since it is naturally antibacterial it will combat those bad guys in your throat right at the source. And it will help reduce inflammation in the area making it easier to breath. It also coats the throat and provides relief from a dry cough as well. Try mixing a tablespoon of honey with a little lemon juice in some herbal tea for extra relief. Drink as many cups as you need.

4. Healthy Hair

Raw honey can be used to make a moisturizing and nourishing hair mask that will add shine to your locks.  After you’ve done your regular shampoo routine, skip the conditioner and mix 1 tbsp of honey with 4 cups of warm water, then apply it to your hair. Let it sit for a few minutes and then rinse it out. No need for conditioner afterwards, then dry and style as usual. And since honey is naturally antibacterial and antifungal, it will help with scalp issues like psoriasis.
