Take full advantage of the nutritional and medical properties of honey! Find out 5 things you need to know about honey and what health miracles it can do.
Honey is one of the oldest sweeteners on earth. It is made in an extraordinary process, with a blend of sugar, trace enzymes, minerals, vitamins and amino acids.
I really recommend replacing sugar with honey, for a healthier body, and I will tell you 5 things that make honey in every way a priceless liquid.
Anti-Bacterial, Anti-Fungal, Acne and Wounds Fighter
When applied, honey releases hydrogen peroxide. Studies have shown that most strains of harmful bacteria can not survive in the presence of hydrogen peroxide.
Honey releases hydrogen peroxide and by that the germs are killed. Also the viscosity provides a protective barrier for the skin.
Tissue Repair in Burns
One important component from honey’s composition is a large amount of glucose. Glucose combines chemically with collagen. By that it promotes the healing process and in many cases honey heals without leaving scars.
For this one you don’t have to believe me. I dare you to try and see with your own eyes the miracle.
Well, most ladies know acne is a major problem not only by how it looks but also by how it feels, because many times acne is associated with pain.
Apply honey on acne and leave it on from 20 minutes to 1 hour. Or you can keep it on the whole night. But I tell you from my own experience, that in 20 minutes the spot will be no longer painful and it will minimise its size.
The anti-inflammatory activity of honey is less well known than its anti-bacterial side.
Improves Your Scalp and Makes Your Hair Healthier
A little bit of honey diluted with some warm water helps in case of dandruff and itching.
Honey is also very useful in case of damaged hair, due to the amount of vitamins and minerals.

You can use it for skin care like body moisturizer or scrub.
