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


Honey is a wondrous thing. It is made when bees collect nectar from flowers and bring it back to the hive to be stored in honeycombs. The colour and flavour of the honey varies depending on the type of flower nectar in the bee’s environment. This makes honey a very unique and valuable food item to use by people. Luckily bees naturally make too much honey for their own use, so there is a lot left over for people to use. And the uses for honey are endless! But here are ten of them; some your doctor won’t want you to know!

10. Skin Care

Honey can be used on the face as a moisturizing facial mask, that will help get rid of acne, after your regular washing routine. Apply a small amount in the palm of your hand and rub it into your skin. Leave it on for 10 minutes and rinse off, no need to moisturize after. It can also be used to exfoliate rough skin on your heels. Just mix it with a bit of baking soda and scrub on any spots that need softening. Honey is antifungal too, so it will help clear any fungus that might be on your feet.
