3 Ways I Plan to Use Honey


Sorry for the inconsistent posting. Getting over a stupid cold!


Someone at work gave me some raw honey. I typically drink my tea with honey opposed to sugar and they were thoughtful enough to give this to me.

It taste pretty good, but I'm already hooked on good ol' Stop & Shop honey. So..I'm sticking to that.



Anyway..because I NEVER want to waste anything, I thought of a few other ways I will use this.

1.)Deep Conditioning Treatment for added softness and shine- There are many ways to do this, but I would prefer to mix about a table spoon of  raw honey with a little HOT water(to melt it). Let cool then apply to my sectioned hair focusing on new-growth. Rinse after an hour and proceed with normal wash routine. If I need protein, I may add an egg.

2.) Lighten the front portion of my hair- Honey is a known natural way to lighten hair. I don't want all my hair to be light, but only the front middle portion to add some character(lol)!
I plan to use this recipe.
Ingredients
1/2 cup raw uncooked honey
1 1/2 cup distilled water
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon or cardamom
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil - May use Safflower Oil since I am not buying any oils unless I absolutely HAVE to
Saran Wrap
Swimming Cap- Or Scarf

3.) Face Mask- I read that honey is great for the skin by helping to clear blemishes and lighten dark spots.
I will mix about 1 tspn of slightly melted honey with 1/4 tspn of vitamin e oil. Then apply to my face, keep on for 20 minutes then rinse.

Do you use honey for beauty purposes? If so, how?

  1. I have raw honey, and I was hooked on TJ's regular honey. Since trying the raw, I don't want the processed kind, the raw tastes different to me.

    I eat honey on my oatmeal or straight from a spoon (sshhhh!).

  2. Maybe I will give this raw honey another try. I figure it's much more healthy than the processed.

    mmmm..never tried it on oatmeal, but I think I will.

    LOL..you aren't the only one!

  3. I use it when I'm far in my stretch (10 weeks +) as a prepoo and it is amazing!! I also plan to use a tsp in my DC.
