Medicine nowadays has no boundaries; it never stands still as new remedies/procedures are introduced every day. I was interested to read in The Mail about the medicinal uses of Honey. I have always had a mug of hot lemon and honey if I’ve had a sore throat, it’s just something we’ve grown up with, but I never realised what other significant and powerful properties it had.
Apparently, you can protect your body from bacteria and viral attacks with the daily use of honey and cinnamon powder. If you have a cold or cough, take one tablespoon of lukewarm honey, mix it with ¼ spoon of cinnamon powder, take for 3 days and it you should see a significant improvement.
It is also a good antioxidant which helps restore damaged skin and aid conditions such as acne, eczema, sunburn, abscess and boils. To help your eyesight, add 2 teaspoons of honey to carrot juice and consume regularly; very helpful for those who spend hours in front of a computer screen!
Lastly, if you want a completely natural cleanser and toner for your skin – Mix 2 tablespoons of honey with 2 teaspoons of milk; apply to the face and leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse with warm water, and pat dry – voila!!
Next time you’re out shopping, don’t forget to pop a jar into your trolley, it’s uses are endless!
Warning! …. Check with your GP before giving honey-containing products to children under 12 months old.
