Pure, unrefined, and unpasteurized honey packs all of the natural vitamins, enzymes, phytonutrients, and many other minerals to keep us nourished and glowing.

Although it must be used in moderation, considering its high fructose, honey can be a nutritious substitute for sugar, butter, or any flavoring. Also, be sure that the honey is raw and not refined, as chemically refined honey can destroy those natural enzymes, vitamins, and minerals that make honey so amazing. So embark on the beauty and health benefits that this flower nectar has to offer.

SWEETEN THE POUNDS AWAY

If you’re looking to lose or maintain a stable weight, honey can be the sweetest answer because raw honey can activate hormones to suppress appetite. To perfectly kick off the day, drizzle honey on a whole grain toast or mix it in with an herbal tea.

GET WORKER-BEE LEVEL ENERGY

Since honey is packed with good carbs, good sugars, vitamins, and minerals, it can provide the perfect amount of fuel to take on the busiest work day. For those strenuous workouts, honey can be an essential part of pre-workout fueling as well as post-workout recovery.

NATURALLY DEFEAT THAT COUGH

With the new, Fall season comes cough and cold. Luckily, honey can play as a delicious alternative to those bitter, over-the-counter cough syrups. Honey includes diphenhydramine and dextromethorphan, ingredients often found in cough medication that reduce mucus secretion and coughs.

REPLACE YOUR EVERYDAY SKINCARE PRODUCTS

This can be the perfect remedy for skin acne or aging because it is loaded with antioxidants. It will also leave the skin looking radiant because of its natural soothing and moisturizing power. So replace your masque, cleanser, or exfoliator with this natural skin-saver.

ADD LIFE TO YOUR HAIR AND NAILS

As it soothes your skin, it can also has the same beautifying effect for your hair and nails. Use honey on the hair as a weightless, shin-boosting conditioner or massage it into the nails as a nourishing, softening cuticle oil.

  1. I never knew honey could do so much! We have a new farmer’s market coming to my community this weekend and supposed to have organic local honey there. I’m going to have to get a bottle and try this!

  2. Many good reasons to have this product on hand in the home. My family doctor would always tell me, during cold and flu season, “always have a nice lemon and honey tea before coming to see me” – as most sore throat episodes would quickly be relieved by the tea!

  3. I had no idea honey had so many healing properties. I have always used more of it during the winter months, looks like honey will be used year round from now on!

  4. I have to agree about using honey for hair and skin, and it is wonderful! Way better than artificial/commercial products in my experience! My mom used to give us honey with lemon when we got colds, so yes, honey is a little miracle!
