Paige agreed to answer your questions! Please submit in comments below. Comment submission ends January 26, 2018.
As a Face wash: Weird as it sounds, honey is a pretty "sweet" facial cleanser. Simply apply and massage to dry skin, then rinse with warm water. It's antibacterial property helps prevent acne, and it leaves your skin soft and moisturized.
As a gargle: Throat feeling sore? Adding honey to your favorite tea can help kill off bacteria growing in the back of your throat.
As a salve to heal wounds: Honey can be used in place of a drugstore antibiotic cream (think Neosporin). It creates a moist environment for healing, reduces wound odor and can naturally debride it (aka, clean out the bad junk). Oh and did I mention it is antibacterial?
