10 Tips: On Honey

10 tips on how to measure, store and use honey to fight pimples and make your hair more luxurious!I LOVE honey. One of my favorite snacks is spreading some peanut butter on bread, adding slices of banana and drizzling honey on top. Mmmmm. Sometimes when my evil sweet tooth is throbbing I will grab a scoop of peanut butter and drizzle honey over it. It’s one of those you close your eyes as you enjoy it moments. My skin is super sensitive and I have applied a mixture of honey and milk to calm irritated red spots. Honey should always be readily available for a slew of reasons! Today I bring you 10 tips on how to measure, store and use honey to fight pimples and make your hair more luxurious!

1. Give your measuring cups a light coat of cooking spray before you measure honey. The cooking spray will make the honey pour out easily and you won’t have a sticky mess. I spray my spatula too!!

2.To properly store your honey keep your honey in an air-tight container, away from direct sunlight and in a cool cabinet or pantry. I would advise not placing your honey in your refrigerator, as it will make it harder to handle.

3. Don’t be worried if your honey gets a cloudy look, which is just a process called crystallization. To liquefy your honey, place your jar in a bowl of warm water and stir. Make sure you do not over heat the honey as the heat can manipulate the color and taste of the honey.

4. To keep your pantry or cabinet shelves free of sticky drops of honey, place your honey and any other jars/bottles that drip on a small baking pan. You can take the pan out for an easier clean up!

5. My friend Dusty told me about this one: if you are having difficulties with allergies, find a store that sells honey made from local hives. The bees made honey from the pollen that may be giving you hives, red eyes or a stuffy nose. The old wise tell is that if you take a small spoonful of this local honey your body will get used to the allergens. Now ain’t that sweet!!

6. Honey is a natural antibiotic. If you can’t find Neosporin just dab a little honey on your boo-boo before applying a Band-Aid. {Insert funny Honey Boo-Boo joke here}

7. Here’s a sweet mask for healthier hair: mix ½ cup of honey with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Apply this to your hair from the scalp to the tips and place a shower cap over. Let this sweet mask sit for about thirty minutes before washing your hair.

8. Have dry skin? Place ¼ to ½ cup of honey to a warm bath. Smells great and leaves your skin feeling silky.

9. Honey has natural antioxidants, helps fight pimples and moisturizes skin. It also helps those with super sensitive skin. Apply some honey to a clean face and allow it to dry (about 15 minutes). Wash it off with warm water and splash some cold water after to close your pores.

10. Sore throat? Add about 2 teaspoons of honey and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice to a cup of hot water. Drink to let it soothe your throat.
