What is the big deal about honey? I always hear about people ‘finding’ out ways to have honey in their daily lives, in tea, with biscuits, bread, bun or some other stuff.

I was once told to take a teaspoon of honey mixed with crushed garlic for good health. I forget if it was for asthma or something else. I’ve heard that it’s is an excellent substitute for sugar in our drinks and food. It’s also used to treat burns in some countries. It also has different phytochemicals–chemicals found in plants and different foods–that kill viruses, bacteria, and fungus making it a good substitute for wound dressings.

Drinking honey mixed with lime juice is good for sore throats. You can use it as a moisturizing mask for your skin as well as your hair. To use it as a conditioner, mix the honey with olive oil. And it can help to rehydrate your body in case of diarrhea.

It is believed that drinking lemon juice with a little honey the first thing in the morning is an effective anti cellulite treatment as it helps to increase body metabolism. If you like, another very popular recipe associated with honey and weight loss is a drink that uses honey and cinnamon as ingredients. Many people have found this home remedy very effective in losing pounds.

Now that’s why I’m interested. Ok, gotta buy me some honey!
