Honey is healthy, great in cocktails and teas and a sweet treat in the morning. But there are numerous other uses for honey that you don’t know about, some of which are really weird. For example, did you know honey is a great remedy for hangovers? Apparently, if you add two tablespoons of honey into a glass of water and drink it in the morning it accelerates the alcohol metabolism and helps you eliminate the toxic compounds faster.
Honey is also great on cuts, bruises and burns. Simply apply a thin layer of honey on the affected area and it will heal in no time. Honey is a natural antiseptic.
Honey also helps you look beautiful. You can use it as a moisturizer for your skin. Warm a little bit of honey and pour it over some herbs such as lavender. Use 1 tablespoon of herbs per 8 ounces of honey. Let it sit for a few weeks and then mix in a teaspoon of liquid into an 8 ounce bottle of unscented lotion.
You can also use honey on your hair as it’s a great conditioner. Put one tablespoon of honey in your shampoo. You can also make a hair mask with honey and olive oil.
If you mix together some honey, vinegar and water you get a mixture that helps you get rid of intestinal parasites.
