Talking about honey based products, I remember what Winnie the Pooh once said, “The only reason for being a bee that I know is of making honey…And the only reason for making honey is so as I can eat it.” Well, there’s more to honey than just being Winnie’s favorite food. I think he’ll be surprised knowing how many things in the world can be made from honey, don’t you think? 😉
The extensive use of honey has made people realize that it can actually be applied in many kinds of products for different purposes. Let’s see some of the honey based products that are available today..
Eat candy, be healthy!
The all-natural honey taste you love in the form of candy,how sweet can that be…The candies I’m talking about here are not just honey-flavored, but honey is actually the main ingredient. Now don’t confuse this with honey-flavored candies because in those type of candies, sugar is the main ingredient, and most of them contain additives.
Honey Energy Bar
The fact that honey is a natural source of energy booster makes it a perfect ingredient for a healthy snack. Honey energy bars are not only delicious, but they’re also a nutritional honey based snack. These energy bars are very common among athletes to sustain their energy after strenuous physical activities.
Honey has always been valued in the skin care regime since many centuries ago. Using the lovely-scented, skin-loving honey soap helps to keep your skin soft and smooth. In fact if you hold the soap in your hands, you can actually feel that the soap itself is fairly soft.
One great thing about honey soaps is that they’re suitable for all types of skin, even for the most sensitive one. Some soapmakers add a few drops of citronella oil to enhance the honey fragrance.
Honey Lip Balm
Honey helps to retain the moisture of your skin and this is why using a honey-based lip balm can protect and cure dry, chapped lips. A honey-based lip balm contains no artificial colors, and other chemicals including petroleum jelly. Do you know that petroleum jelly, which is contained in other kinds of lip balms,actually has side effects to your skin?
You see, applying petroleum jelly actually forms an additional protection layer on the lips. However, this same protection layer blocks the skin pores, preventing toxins and other unwanted substances that is supposed to be discharged from the skin from getting out. The toxin trapped inside is what causes some people to get skin irritation and itchiness.
Honey wound plaster
Honey is very well known for its ability to heal wound quickly. Because of this, many people apply honey on the wound and put a bandange as a final dressing. But recently, adhesive plasters that are infused with honey has been invented. It is more convenient to use and a great alternative for wound dressing.
