Yes, today we will be talking about the healing property of the sweet, delicious and warmly rich food which the honey bees give to us – Honey.
This sweet food is made up by the honey bees by taking up the nectar that resides inside different fruits, flowers and plants. Honey bees keep a look out for nectar in flowers. After extracting it from there they have a special procedure called “regurgitation” by which they convert the nectar into honey and then store it in the wax honey combs located in their houses called beehives.
This marvelous process makes the magical extracts of different flowers and fruits, available for us. So, what does basically the sweet honey contain? Well, it basically contains the components like fructose and glucose.
But sometimes the honey might also have certain amounts of bacterium inside them which can be dangerous for the infants, so honey should not be given to infants before taking advice from a child specialist doctor.
The honey which is totally raw in form, in the sense that it has not undergone pasteurization or filtration, can be of great medicinal and healing value for everyone because it contains loads of minerals and vitamins inside it, and is a total natural remedy for many purposes.
The raw form of honey also serves the role of an antiseptic as it can quickly help removing the poison of bites, stings etc and it can serve to heal the wounds as well because it contains certain enzymes that quicken up the process of healing.
It is quite a recent discovery that honey has been successfully used by researchers to treat even the severest of the burns caused to a human body. This sweet food can treat the skin without even requiring the need of applying any skin graft or causing any kind of skin infection! Once the wounds are clean, the honey can be applied and used as a healer for them. Honey with the combination of garlic also works as a great healer for the affected skin.
If one talks of specifically dealing with acne scars, then the best home remedy for this is to pick Manuka honey and apply it on your face or other body area as a mask. All you have to do is take two teaspoons of it and apply it once every day to the affected areas present on your body. Leave this on for at least fifteen minutes (you can do it for a half an hour as well for quicker results).
If the honey feels sticky on the face and does not come off easily, then you can simply use warm water and soap to remove it off. Continue doing this procedure regularly for at least a month and you will definitely see some solid and visible results of it on your skin.
