Honey Benefits

Here’s one that you’re bound to already have in your kitchen. If not, you should find some and stock up! Local honey is created from nectar gathered from local flower and plants and can be used to heal scrapes and cuts. In addition to its healing power it even reduces the symptoms of allergies. When it comes to healing external ailments, there’s not much that can rival honey.
Wildflower honey has many different antibiotic properties and can cure external and internal ailments. There are a few varieties of honey that work best and should be kept in your medicine cabinet. When looking for honey to use to heal your body search for one that is organic. This ensures that there aren’t any pollutants in the honey that you’ll apply directly to your skin.
Manuka honey is the most popular for treating illness, but Medihoney, or any wildflower honey will do. It’s better than agricultural or single-plant mass-produced honeys that are on the shelves at grocery stores. You can also mix other bee products into your honey such as royal jelly and propolis to increase the effectiveness of the mixture for healing.
Apply honey directly to wound be it a burn, ulceration, or bedsore and wrap the wound in a bandage. Reapply honey three times a day until the wound has healed. This will prevent infection and speed up the healing process because of the moisture that is placed on the wound because of the honey. Honey can also cure impetigo and seborrheic dermatitis. Just mix water in with the honey to create a wash and apply it to the infected area of the skin twice a day.
 If you are using honey internally, it can help with cold and flus and respiratory infection. Your symptoms will be less severe and you’ll recover rapidly. One tablespoon up to ten times a day can help with acute symptoms, colds, and the flu. In addition to being an antibiotic, honey is also a laxative, immune stimulant, antiviral, and antifungal.
When you purchase honey to use as an antibiotic look out for your common store bought honey, which may have pollen removed or corn syrup added. You want to get an all-natural honey and if you can’t find it at the store then look for it at a farmer’s market or natural food store instead.
There aren’t any risks while using honey externally, but if you are allergic to bee stings take note that in some cases internal consumption can lead to anaphylaxis. It’s pretty rare for this to occur. Honey really is a great way to heal wounds and relieve some of the symptoms of colds and flu, so I would suggest that you always have a little on hand for medicinal purposes.
