Pure honey tea can make you feel energised without experiencing any of the drawbacks of excess caffeine or sugar, and is the perfect beverage to start your day. Natural honey works as a perfect alternative to sugar and artificial sweeteners.

Real honey is full of vitamins and antioxidants, which reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. It soothes menstrual cramps with its natural painkiller qualities and provides relief during stomachaches.

2   Soothe Your Stomach

Raw Honey is known to soothe the stomach and help with acid reflux. Adding pure honey to oatmeal will help with digestion, nausea, and diarrhoea.

Having a spoonful of natural honey also raises your blood sugar levels instantly when you are weak from not eating properly while you are sick. Low GI honeys are also accessible for people on low GI diets. They provide a slower and more sustained energy release and are an ideal alternative to sugar for those looking to lower their sugar intake.

3   Use as A Face Mask

Real Honey can do wonders for your skin. Various concoctions can be made by mixing honey with different ingredients to treat many skin conditions. It can moisturise skin, cleanse pores, and treat acne.

Mix raw honey with baking soda and use the paste to exfoliate your skin. Apply raw honey to your skin to balance the bacteria present on it, treat acne, and reduce the scars left behind. Mix honey with aloe vera gel, and it acts as an excellent remedy for sunburns. Pure honey masks will hydrate your skin, reverse signs of ageing, and add a beautiful natural glow to your skin.

4   Treat Your Cough

Natural Honey is a natural remedy for coughs recommended by The World Health Organisation. A spoon full of real honey will soothe your throat and prevent night-time coughing, resulting in better sleep. Raw Honey coats the throat with its stickiness and soothes inflamed mucus membranes, which helps to alleviate coughs. It also has antimicrobial properties that help it to fight viruses and help with symptoms of the common cold.

Make sure the honey you use for these treatments is pure, natural, real, raw honey and not the processed honey on the supermarket shelves. You can try our amazing Manuka honey, which has antibacterial qualities, and explore different honey options available on our website.
