I Love You, Honey

Honey. Awwwww. What a sweet endearment! So sweet, I am imagining ants crawling on the screen now. But really, I can very well understand why we use “honey” to refer to our loved ones; I use it, too. When I’m not mad, that is.

I love you, honey. (No, Honey, it’s not you this time.) I’m actually paying homage to something Winnie the Pooh cannot live without. And something I definitely love, too. Honey. That nourishing honey. The one we add in our tea. The one we drip on our pancakes. The one that’s rich in nutrients –vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

It wouldn’t be called the nectar of god for nothing. But other than its usual uses – as natural sweetener or oomph-and-zing multiplier, honey has other uses –for me, for us. And next to baking soda, honey is something I do not want to run out of supply of (and that’s why I’m trying to make the 2 700L bottles of all-natural honey last until my brother’s visit; he gets it cheap from where he is assigned).

Ø Diarrhea treatment. I am not really a big fan of medicines. If I can find a cheap, economical and natural alternative, I use that. Even for diarrhea, I rarely pop a pill because I don’t want to keep the toxin from coming out of me. Unless if I need to, like when I’m traveling or when attending an event that makes running to the bathroom every minute or so impossible or difficult. But when I’m home, it’s nothing or honey. Or ginger tea with honey. Really. And because honey is natural, I will not worry about side-effects. The last time I pooped liquid, all I took was a spoonful of honey and some water. And that’s that. I must be lucky because I didn’t make any trip to the CR after that.

(Word of caution: Not to be given to babies below 1yo, as their digestive system may not be able to tolerate it.)

Ø Scrub. For a homemade foot scrub, an ample amount of honey plus a spoonful of sugar is good enough. For the face, I make a paste out of an ample amount of honey and a dash of baking soda.

Ø Moisturizer. Plain honey can be used to moisturize the lips and skin, including the face. When I’m home, I use it as an alternative to commercial lip balms. It’s just lick-ably purr-fect for my cracked, dry lips. BTW, I’ve tried it with my son, countless of times, and he’s just so uncomplaining when it hit his lips.

Ø Bed sore treatment. Apart from its nutritional benefits, honey has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory components and is known to hasten healing of wounds. When my cousin’s grandmother (whom I also call Mama) got sick and got those nasty bed sores, honey was the only thing we applied on her until the sores were all gone.

Ø Facial treatment. I used to have facial sessions (before Matt, when I was still the master of my time :D) and one product given to me was honey mixed with some unknown medicines. And in my recent all-expense-paid (by the company) spa trip, the all-natural facial treatment I was given was composed of other ingredients and honey.

We -my hub, my sister and I- is using a honey-based soap. And my sister also applies pure honey to help contain her occasional breakouts.

(Word of caution: Make sure to wash thoroughly afterwards or you might find yourself in the company of tiny crawlers also known as ants. :D)

Oh, by the way, I read before that honey is also used as aphrodisiac. C'mon now, don’t look at me like that! I can just imagine what you’re thinking now. “She loves it because…” Do I sound guilty of that? Wink. But really, I am the last person who can validate that and I have not honestly used it like that. I have heard though that other people use it as an aphrodisiac.

For more of honey, visit the ff: MotherEarthNews; Life Positive; Billy Bee; and Food Reference.


Compelled to write this after a-blink-of-an-eye moment with my dear son, who accidentally broke one half-full bottle of all-natural honey just few days ago. Now, we're down to the last bottle (in the picture).

Melissa said...

Wow, who knew there were that many uses for honey. I'll have to remember the facial scrub advice. Inexpensive and quick.

Melanie said...

I also use it to soothe a dry scratchy throat. Since I am still breastfeeding I can't take cough medicine. The last time I had a cold and a cough I used honey so I could get a little sleep without coughing.

Sonya said...

I use honey for sore throats. I had no idea you could use it for some of these other things. I knew you could use it mixed with other things but putting it directly on your lips, who knew! Great tips and very interesting!

Tiff said...

OOOH I will have to try it on my daughter as a lip balm. She hates using chapstick but licks her lips so much she looks like she has been drinking Koolaid! Thanks for the tips!!!

Crystal said...

Wow this was an interesting post!
Thanks for sharing!

Hi Z--ah, honey is a wonderful food. I've just started introducing my little one to honey and herbal teas.

btw--I hope you don't mind but I'm tagging you on an interesting topic--Do you spare the rod?
Check it out.

Regina said...

I had no idea honey could be used for so many other things. I think everyone knows about the throat thing but WOW!
Hey you may want to find an old book titled "Back To Eden" by Jethro Kloss, if you are really into herbal remedies. it is an awesome book.

Blessings, Regina

zamejias said...

Melanie, Sonya: Yes, I'm using it for sore throats, too. And when I get a slight cough, I use it too (along with my ginger tea).

zamejias said...

Melissa: Yes, I definitely think it's so great for facials because I use it a lot.

zamejias said...

Tiff: Yes, you could try it on her and please let me know if it works. ;D

zamejias said...

Crystal: Glad you liked it. Thanks :D
