    Home Remedies using Honey



    I haven't tried any of these - I just read this info today. But I will definitely be trying some of these remedies.

    Simple Home Remedies

    To reduce a stomach ache take 1 tsp. honey, 1 tsp. lemon juice and
    mix it with warm water. This should be taken first thing in the
    morning.

    Take 6 ounces of honey, 2 ounces of glycerin and lemon juice of
    2 lemons. Mix all the ingredients, bottle it, and use it when
    you suffer from sore throat.

    Honey is great for your digestive system as well as problems
    like constipation. To combat poor digestion mix 1 tsp. honey
    with 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar. Add a good amount of water to get
    a proper taste. Drink it to get relief from digestion problems.

    Other stomach problems can be helped by having 10 gms of honey
    on an empty stomach in the morning and avoid eating for the next hour.
    Continue this regularly to get relief.

    Honey can be used as a substitute for sugar which would help
    control your intake of calories.

    It can be used as a lotion to cure eye problems like
    conjunctivitis as well as boils in your eye. Make a mixture of
    equal amount of honey and warm water. Once cooled use it as an
    eye bath or a lotion.

    Use honey to improve your appetite.

    To prevent migraines have 2 tsp. of honey at meals. If you are
    suffering from migraines take 1 dessert spoon of honey mixed
    with 1/2 glass of warm water. Drink this liquid. If required, repeat
    this within next 20 minutes.

    You can use honey as mouthwash by mixing 1 tbsp. of honey in a
    cup of warm water. This mouthwash kills germs and bacteria
    present in the mouth.

    In ratio of 1:2 take honey and luke warm water respectively. In
    this add cinnamon powder and make a paste. Massage it to the
    itchy area; you will notice the difference in a short period.
    Very good treatment for allergies.

    Mix 2 tsp. honey and one tsp. cinnamon powder in 1 cup of hot
    water. This mix could be taken by arthritis patients every
    morning and evening to cure arthritis.

    To remove bladder infections take 2 tbsp. cinnamon powder and 1
    tsp honey in a glass of lukewarm water. Drink it to destroy
    germs in the bladder.

    Love honey:)

    My aunt used to have lots of bee houses,I have wanted to do that,dh is afraid for me to because of the ?I forget,the agresive huge bees we have here now.
    Her Mom ,my Granny always would have us eat honey,a treat was a honeycomb when we were children.She always put it in her coffee,which she let me drink with her when no one was aroundwith lots of cream and sugar too.She used honey in her tea,as I do now.She called it Gods golden medicine.She could treat you as well as a doctor then,as she came from women who knew the way to heal from nature.Her mother in law was riding a trail and treating people,including many Indians and leasrning their ways as her mother di.It was called Speegle Blaze Trial,you can look it up
    I wish I could remeber all she said but I only had her until I was about 12 maybe a little younger.She would not be going for the foods now,I recall as when she was old she would have coffee with honey and cereal for breakfast and the same for her supper and lunch was soup.She must have had digestive problems.She was a tiny skinny little woman,maybe I should try her diet.
    Honey can also cure hiccups,works same as a spoon of sugar,it weighs down the muscle flap(wha tis it called)and cures the hiccups
