I've heard that honey has antiviral properties and can be used to help rid acne. I've also heard of honey and milk used together to soften hands and honey and nutmeg applied to the face as an exfoliator.

I just like to share a few ideas here: 1. For Coughs - mix it with warm water and lemon juice. 2. For Detox - mix with apple cider vinegar. 3. For slimming - mix with a combination of fruit juices - green apples, carrots and oranges. 4. For bbq seasoning - I will season my skewered pork/beef along with the normal spices and mix. Makes the meat tastier. 5. There are times I will have my waffles with honey and ice cream.

I rarely use honey. My son however loves the stuff. He has been eating his Cherrios cereal with honey drizzled over the top every morning. He says it is better than the regular Honey Nut Cherrios.

i use it by mixing a spoon of honey with one glass (about 300cc) fresh milk. it's so tasty! honey is much better than sugar (sugar cane or palm sugar). but it's said that to much honey won't be good for our health, and you can't drink pure honey. you must mix it with another drink.

Honey is used for several purposes. Healthwise:its used to tackle obesity problem.We usually take one spoon of honey, one spoon of lime juice and mix them well in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it in the early morning.Make sure you leave, one hour gap, before you have your breakfast. Beauty tip:A half spoon of honey,half spoon of lime juice, and little bit of milk's cream, when mixed properly and applied on your face can do wonders,it leaves your skin glowing.

I use honey in cooking, not all the time but just occasionally, I also love it on toast, it is just lovely on toast!

I like to eat honey on toast. I spread the butter on whilst the toast is still warm, and the butter melts, and then I put honey on the top. I also like to drink a couple of glasses of lemon juice a day, and I use honey to sweeten this. I can't take it without it being sweetened and think that honey goes really well with lemon. Brightest Blessings.

Once in a while, yes! I use honey for some medication like mixing a table spoon of it in some union bulb juices plus 5 table spoons of lemon juice. It relieves cough and serves as an alternative better anti-biotic. I also mix it once in a while with my tea and is my sweetener for a calamansi / lemon juice. Once in a while I spread it to my toasted bread. So, really, I use it almost everyday.

I don't use honey frequently in daily life. But I know making a honey tea helps people to fall asleep at night. But overdo is alvays not good.

I usually mix honey in with my cereal to give it a natural sugar boost. It is also good for energy, I exercise at the gym three, four times a week and the sugar kick it gives me is wonderful for when I do rigorous exercise. When I went to Rhodes we went to a honey farm and the honey was delicious and it was sooooo good you could actually get a spoon and eat it raw! It's great for when you are feeling ill too, mum always said that a spoonful of honey will help most ills!
