1. Hair Treatment - Silky Smooth 
What you need:
1 part honey & 3 drops warm coconut oil 
What to do:
Warm up the coconut oil in the microwave or on the stove. Combine with the honey and blend thoroughly. Work into damp hair as you would a shompoo. Let it sit for 10-30 minutes, and then wash as usual. The honey and oil will leave your hair soft and fragrant. You can also replace coconut oil with a heavier substitute such as olive oil, which helps smooth dry, damaged hair. 
 
2. Cold Medicine - Instant Relief 
What you need: 
1 part honey & 1 part raw minced garlic 
What to do: 
Slice raw garlic into tiny pieces and sprinkle throughout the honey. Swallow a spoonful of the mixture. Feel the smoothing effect of the honey on your throat, and wait for the health benefits of the garlic to take effect. Tips: squeeze some lemon into the mix for a vitamin C boost! 
 
3. Gentle Exfoliator - Skin Beauty 
What you need: 
2 parts raw honey & 1 part baking soda 
What to do: 
Combine the raw honey and baking soda and mix the ingredients together. Rinse your skin with water and rub the concoction on your face or body in a circular motion. Rinse it off after you've had a good scrub. The honey contains antioxidants, enzymes and nutrients that nourish, cleanse, and hydrate the skin. The baking soda enhances the exfoliation factor by removing dead skin cells. 
 
4. Wound Healer - Prevent Infection 
What you need:
Raw Honey 
What to do: 
Skin injury always comes with the risk of bacterial infection. Dab a fair amount of honey on your wound for instant bacteria eradiction, scar prevention, and antibiotic resistance. This works on most wounds including cuts, burns and abscesses. Be sure to use raw (unpasteurised) honey for this treatment. 
 
5. Natural Energy Booster - Increase athletic performance 
What you need: 
1 part peanut butter & 1 part honey 
What to do: 
Combine the ingredients evenly. This paste works in a sandwich, or as a hearty fruit and vegetable dip. Both honey and peanuts are an excellent source of carbohydrates and energy, helping to fuel your metabolism, keep you going longer, and increase concentration. 
 
6. Fake Tan Remover - Reveal your natural skintone 
What you need: 
A few drops of lemon juice & 2 parts honey 
What to do: 
Mix all the ingredients and apply to the affected areas. Let the treatment sit for 10 minutes and wash off with cold water. Apply twice daily for best results.
