Health Benefits of Raw Honey

Raw Honey is Antiseptic, Antibiotic, Antifungal, Antibacterial, and it Never Spoils!

Raw honey is a powerful immune system booster. Raw honey contains 27 minerals, 22 amino acids and 5,000 live enzymes. It keeps you healthy by fighting disease and boosting the digestive system. One daily spoonful in your tea or spread on your toast is all that is needed to reap these benefits.

Raw Honey can be Beneficial when Trying to Lose Weight

Unlike refined sugar, honey contains vitamins and minerals. Honey helps metabolize cholesterol and fatty acid, preventing obesity. Try making a drink by adding honey and lemon to a glass of water.


Raw Honey as a Beauty Aid

Raw honey can be used as a moisturizer, facial mask, hair conditioner, and cleanser. It has natural humectants with the ability to replenish the moisture level in skin without adding oil.

As a moisturizing facial mask:

To exfoliate, clarify, and unclog pores, smooth a small amount of raw honey lightly over the skin; relax and leave on for 30 minutes. Remove with warm water. Leaves skin baby soft.

As a dry hair treatment:

After shampooing, smooth raw honey evenly on hair. Rinse well. Or, apply to wet or dry hair 30 minutes before shampooing. Shampoo as usual. Hair will be soft and full of shine.

As an antibacterial cleanser:

Wash with a small amount of raw honey to help clear facial blemishes and acne.

Raw Honey can Help Treat Cuts and Wounds

Use the antiseptic properties of raw honey to clean wounds and help inhibit bacterial growth. Its natural antibiotic and antibacterial properties aid in treating cuts and burns. It may help promote healing, reduce swelling and help prevent infections. Apply a small amount of raw honey lightly over the affected area; may cover with a dressing or a dusting of cornstarch to reduce any stickiness.

Raw Honey as a Dental Aid

Apply raw honey to canker sores, fever blisters, and irritations on gums and mouth.

Raw Honey as an Aid in Digestion

Raw honey does not ferment in the stomach and is easily absorbed. The flavor excites the appetite and may help with digestion. It also has a lubricating effect that may help with constipation.

Raw Honey for Arthritis

Add one tablespoon raw honey and one tablespoon of raw apple cider vinegar, such as Bragg’s, to a cup of warm water. Drinking one to three times per day may help with arthritis pain.

  1. Wow! I knew honey was good for lots of things, I just didn't really know what. This is great information. Thank you for stopping by my place and leaving your words of encouragement. No one tells you certain "healthy" foods are bad for your teeth, until it's too late.

  2. Great post! I learned about raw honey about two years ago and have had it in the pantry ever since... my kids know they get some for cuts (and they get a taste, too, to cheer them up)
