Honey is a household staple and contains a multitude of benefits to your health. Many people enjoy using honey as a natural sweetener or as a throat soothing salve.
Honey could be used to treat many other, more serious, health issues if utilized correctly. Here are five unconventional ways that you can use honey:
Cure Your Hangover
Honey is high in fructose content, therefore, if you consume honey the morning after a binge-drinking session it could help process the alcohol faster. This means a speedier recovery time.
Wash Your Face
Honey is great for the skin. It kills bacteria without stripping away the natural oils on your body. You can dilute it with water, mix it with sugar to make a scrub or use it on its own. Your skin will benefit from it.
Combat Bad Breath
If you have issues with bad breath, then try mixing a concoction of 1/4 cup of water with 1 teaspoon of lemon juice and one teaspoon of honey. Gargle this solution for three minutes and spit it out. This helps to freshen your breath without the harsh alcohol and chemicals found in your store-bought mouthwash.
