29 Jun Top 5 Home Honey Remedies
Honey is truly a miracle food. More research has proven that honey is the best choice as an alternative sweetener. Unfortunately, not all honey is the same. Most honey sold in stores has been diluted to the point that the liquid doesn’t even classify as honey anymore. Most store honey is ultra-filtered and overheated, which depletes it of essential minerals and nutrients.
Cox’s Honey however is 100% raw honey. We don’t filter or overheat our honey during the packaging process. As a result, our honey maintains important nutrients that are so vital to honey remedies within the home.
For thousands of years, people have recognized the health benefits of honey remedies. These remedies have cured things from the common cold to burns. Below are the top 5 home honey remedies.
#5 – Lose Weight
Substituting raw honey for sugar can help individuals lose weight. Honey has a lower glycemic index than sugar, making is slower to digest. Thus, enabling bodies to use honey as fuel rather than store it as fat.
#4 – Help with Digestion
Out of the many honey remedies, honey has been proven to help with digestion. Consuming a tablespoon of honey after each meal or two times a day is proven to be effective with digestive issues.
#3 – Acne Relief
Honey contains antibacterial properties and trace amounts of hydrogen peroxide. Consequently, this can help alleviate acne. Simply use a teaspoon of honey. Warm the honey between hands and spread over the infected areas gently. Leave the honey on for 10 minutes, then rinse and pat dry.
#2 – Heal Burns
At number two on our honey remedies list is the ability of honey to heal burns. Again, because of honey’s antibacterial properties, it is effective in the healing of burns. To heal burns, wash the infected area, then spread honey over the burn. Wrap the area with a bandage.
#1 – Alleviates Colds and Sore Throats
Honey has also been proven to alleviate colds and sore throats. Drinking a honey based tea, such as a cinnamon-honey tea, can stop a cold in its tracks.
While these are just a few of the many honey remedies out there, these are the few that many are finding success with. Just be sure that the honey you are using and consuming is raw, unfiltered honey.
