Yes it has been well known that honey is a 'power food' it has great medical properties. For example, honey is known to be antiseptic, apply it to a would to prevent it from getting infected and to promote the healing of the wound! I also drink honey water to soothe my throat

I certainly agree with this timou87. Honey is a power food, if I tired and lost concerntration then I drink a glass of water plus a spoon of honey. In several minutes, I will feel the god effect. Also, New Zealand has a unique honey called manuka honey. Research done in University of Waikato found that manuka honey is the best 'dressing' for skin burn. If you put honey in burned skin, the skin will recovered sooner and minimum scar will left. But dont try this at home before you are very sure about the right way to apply honey at burned skin please.

honey is really great. whenever i have slight burns and i have some honey around, i always use it. it really soothes the burn great. the burn will no longer get to the point wherein a bulk of water is formed beneath the skin as a result of the burn. this is great since burns which reach that condition is really very painful and disturbing. besides, bursting it can cause it to be infected.

No doubt Honey is a natural cure of almost every disease. This should be explored more so that mankind can get benefit of it. Pure honey is costly, but effective for the general health of a person. the people who use honey daily, always have a good resistance against different diseases. Sexually weaker persons can use honey with eggs, this is a miraculous prescription. With black peppers honey has very effective effect for preventing cough, honey mixed in warm water is very beneficial for abdominal/stomach diseases. there are a hell of benefits of this Elixer

Thank for interested. What I did was (1) shampoo my hair, (2) dry my hair with towel, 3) apply honey dilluted in water (several drops of honey diluted in 2 spoons of water enough for my very short hair, I am a man) into my hair and ensure the water+honey touches my scalp; leave it there for 10 minutes; and (4) finally wash may hair again (no shampoo but just water, rinse is the correct word maybe). Not that difficult, you can try several times and you will know how much honey and water enough for you.. The good thing is after I do this water+honey to my hair, the hair will become (1) soft and hydrate; and (2) no flaky scalp for several days. Good luck!

I have heard about honey plus half raw egg but it is for increasing "man's energy" ... lol I have no secret recipe, just honey diluted in water and put it at your skin and scalp. Your skin and hair will moist and soft.. (I am a man, I have dry skin and hair, dont misunderstood I am not a "beautiful man")..

I wish I could come to your honey farm. I love honey so much. Its very versatile. Its even better when combined with juices. I love its effect to my brain, hair and skin. I also prefer using it instead of sugar. But its too expensive. I hope I could have a honey farm too.

I have no honey farm my friend. I am just lucky to live in NZ where the well known manuka honey comes from. Manuka honey works very well for me..

honey is really a natural wonder in itself. after cleaning the face, i apply a few drops to my face and it will revitalize my skin all the more for the duration of my sleep. i add a tablespoon to a ginger concoction with lemon juice to effect a cure for my coughs, colds and flu. i can also add some to an onion concoction plus lemon juice to get the phlegm out of my lungs. honey can revitalize us inside out. it is really good for our health. so let us make use of honey all the more.

Yes, i am a honey fan. I use honey for my face. i mix honey with kalamansi juice, put it in my face after washing and leave it there for a few minutes. You'll feel fresher and softer skin! I am also fascinated with bees and how they make honey and honey derived products. In the future, i will have my own bee farm and products from honey.

Hope your wish to own a bee farm will be granted. By the way, what is 'kalamansi juice'?

Honey enriches and adds a subtle flavor to many savoury dishes such as meat casseroles, sauces and dressings. When used in a marinade, honey will help tenderise meat and while it is cooking, the honey gives a distinctive barbecue flavour to food as it caramelises. I like it spread on piping hot toast and in plain yoghurt with a teaspoon of runny honey stirred in. I also put a good teaspoon of honey in a mug, add a slice of lemon with a clove or two, top up with very hot water and drink to soothe my cold..

I usually mixed my milk or choco drink with honey. It is also best on toppings of pancakes rather than caro syrup or butter. Honey makes our body energetic and it is a good in cleansing the toxins in our body.

I heard that we cannot mix honey with milk because when combine they form something that not good, but after I read many MyLotters said that they drink honey + milk I am not sure anymore..

I use honey when I have cereals in the morning. I usually use it instead of sugar. Thank you for this information. I will try to use it with my hair and see how it works. When I have a cold and a sore throat I take a spoon or two of honey and it helps.

I take in honey but I never thought that it could be also applied to hair and skin. Yes, honey does wonders especially because it is easily digested and can give nutrients to the body fast. I wish to try also for my hair and skin :)
