Uses for Honey

Here are some uses of honey that you may not realise.  Try some and let us know what you think! 

  • Rub honey on your lips and a natural lip balm, both soothing and healing. 
  • Mix 1 teaspoon of honey with half an avocado and mash together for a wonderfully moisturising face mask.  Leave on for 10 minute before washing off.
  • Apply honey to fresh cuts - it's antibacterial and will not only disinfect, but aid healing
  • Soothe a sore throat by slowly swallowing a teaspoon of honey
  • Apply honey to a fresh burn.  It will soothe and heal
  • Eat 2 tablespoon of honey to relieve a hangover - it's packed with fructose, which can help speed up your body's ability to metabolise the alcohol
  • Substitute honey for sugar in your baking.  For every cup of sugar in a recipe, replace with 3/4 cup of honey.
  • Make ginger-lime honey by mixing together 1 cup honey, 8 slices fresh ginger and a zest of 2 limes.  Put in a small saucepan and heat gently until just boiling, then simmer for five minutes. Remove, cool, then strain into a jar.
  • Soothe a sore stomach by mixing 1 teaspoon of honey into a lemon and ginger tea
  • Preserve your fruit with honey syrup.  Mix 1 part honey to 10 parts water and use this to pour over your fruit, rather than a sugar syrup.  Do make sure you heated the mixture up to ensure that the honey is dissolved. Here's a great recipe
