We at Boroughmakers love raw honey and today we will tell you why we think you should love it too. These are our top 5 reasons:
1. FACIAL EXFOLIATOR:
Honey is loaded with antioxidants, enzymes, and other nutrients that nourish, cleanse, and hydrate skin. Even better, if you use it with cinnamon, it will do wonders to your face.
2. HAIR CONDITIONER
If you hair is in need of a little shine then honey will do the trick! The nutrients in raw honey will give your dull hair the shine it needs without weighting it down.
3. NATURALLY SUPPRESSES COUGHS
The thick consistency of honey coats the throat and helps with coughs. If you have a cold, make sure you add it to your tea and also take a teaspoon of it on its own.
4. TREATS ALLERGIES
Raw, local honey taken a couple times a day, starting a few month before allergy season has been found to relieve seasonal allergies. It must be local honey, however, since it will contain tiny amounts of pollen from local plants, which will act as a sort of vaccine against the allergens found in that plant.
5. MIX A DRINK
Yes, that's right, you can make yummy cocktails with raw honey. We recently did just that with Ruse Goods Honey Elixir, a delicious syrup that enhances flavors. Made from raw clover honey and organic cinnamon, this elixir offers numerous health benefits. It's pretty amazing!
