Raw Honey: Miracle Food -part 2

Throughout the centuries, women of legendary beauty such as Cleopatra and Poppea (wife of Roman Emperor) used raw honey as part of their skin & hair treatments to maintain their youthful appearance.

Raw honey may be a great anti-aging component because it can help keep your skin hydrated. When raw honey is exposed to air, it naturally attracts, absorbs and seals in moisture, providing a soothing effect on irritated or dry skin.
Raw honey may be just the treat your skin is thirsty for. I love the way this recipe leaves my face feeling smooth and soft!

“Cleopatra’s Secret”

  • 1 tsp. organic olive oil
  • 1 organic egg yoke
  • 1 tbsp. raw organic honey

Mix honey &  olive oil into a small bowl.  Separate the egg yoke & add it to the honey & oil. Mix until creamy.  Apply a warm washcloth to your face to open the pores. Apply the raw honey face mask . Relax for 20 min. while it cleanses. Rinse face with warm water. Finish off with a splash of cold water to close the pores and firm up your skin.

Raw honey is also antibacterial. History tells us of Roman legions applying honey to soldier’s wounds as a natural healing agent. Raw honey is not only good for nourishing your skin, but may also be useful as a mild antiseptic and healing agent! The low water content and high acidic level of honey creates a low pH environment that makes it very hard for bacteria to grow.

Some people believe that if applied to cuts and burns, raw honey may prevent bacteria, reduce scarring, and encourage the growth of new tissue.  Raw honey may also be helpful in treating acne.

I’m not a doctor or a beekeeper, but I’ve used raw honey most of my life as a replacement for refined sugar. I adore it’s rich flavor, and now through discovering how absolutely amazing it is for our skin… I just love it all the more!
