Honey may be able to reduce inflammation and irritation associated with acne. To do this, apply Wild Nature honey directly to the skin. Be sure to cover the affected area with a thin layer of honey.
You should leave this mask on for at least 15 minutes with perhaps better results if left on for one hour or more. (music and headphones will do the trick to hold your teenager there).

You may also be able to use Wild Nature honey to help soothe eczema. Try mixing equal parts of honey, olive oil, and Wild Nature Face & Body Cream (which contains the beeswax produced by our bees) beeswax.
It’s recommended that you apply the mixture three times a day.

What the research says
Unlike most alternative treatments, there’s scientific evidence to support the healing benefits of honey. These benefits include:
Honey has been found to help heal wounds. Wild Nature honey is acidic and has a pH between 3.2 and 4.5. The acidic properties of honey have been shown to promote healing.
The acidity also blocks enzymes that break down the proteins and peptides the body needs to repair itself. The high concentration of sugar in honey also helps protect wounds.
Honey is low in moisture and draws fluid from a wound. This helps remove waste and speed along the healing process. Honey also draws water out of the cells of invading bacteria. Bacteria need water to grow and survive. Drawing the water out of invading bacteria will kill them off.
All kinds of honey have been used as natural antibiotics throughout the centuries. In recent years, researchers have discovered that honey’s power to kill germs comes from hydrogen peroxide produced with the help of a bee enzyme.
Honey takes this a step further by attacking germs with a substance called MGO. Found in the nectar of some plants, this substance helps heal both minor and chronic wounds.
The more MGO there is in the honey, the more antiviral and antibacterial properties it has.
Dozens of species of bacteria have shown susceptibility to honey, including Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus. Honey also appears to be effective against Clostridium difficile, a difficult to treat organism often spread in healthcare settings.
Researchers are particularly interested in the fact that honey appears to attack infections that form a biofilm, or a thin, slippery layer of bacteria. This is because once an infection has formed a biofilm, it’s considered to be untreatable.
To date, there are no reports of microbial resistance to honey. That suggests it might be successful against resistant organisms and long-lasting wound infections that do not heal with regular antibiotic therapy. For this reason, honey is considered a last-resort option against infection.
Digestion and immunology
To help with digestion, you should eat 1 to 2 tablespoons of it each day.
You can eat it straight or add it to your food.
If you’d like to work Wild Nature honey into your meal plan, consider spreading it onto a slice of whole-grain toast or adding it to yoghurt. Tea drinkers can also add a spoonful to their cup.
If you have a sore throat or if you just want to be proactive, try taking 1/2 to 1 tablespoon of Wild Nature honey each day. If you aren’t sick, this may help boost your immune system and prevent you from getting sick. If you already have a sore throat, it can help ease your symptoms.
You may be able to treat minor scrapes and cuts with honey. Severe or deep cuts should be assessed by your doctor, as stitches or other antibiotic care may be necessary.
You should be able to determine the amount of honey necessary by assessing the number of fluids leaking from the wound. The more leakage, the more honey you should use to dress the area.
To do this, apply the honey to a bandage. Then apply the bandage to the wound. You shouldn’t apply the honey directly to the wound.
Also, you may need to change the bandage and apply honey more frequently. This is because excessive leakage can dilute the honey and reduce its effects.
Using sealed or waterproof dressing may help keep the honey from spreading outside of the bandaged area.
For most people, Honey is safe to consume. There’s usually no limit on how much honey you can ingest. But if you have diabetes, talk to your doctor before adding honey to your regimen. Honey, has high sugar content. This may cause a spike in your blood sugar levels.
If you’re allergic to other types of honey, consult your doctor. You likely will not be able to use Wild Nature honey without experiencing an allergic reaction.
