Honey is such a versatile product. Not only is it nutritious, honey also builds your immune system, energizes you, beautifies you, treats wounds, and it can improve your scalp and be a great moisturizer. If you want to get the best out of your honey make sure it’s raw. Raw honey contains vitamins, minerals, and enzymes as opposed to refined honey. We have many local honeys here at Down to Earth… come in and check them out! (My fav is Manoa honey.)

Here are some treat yo’self honey recipes:

Hair Conditioner

Mix ½ cup honey with ¼ cup olive oil. Put on hair until coated and let sit for 30 minutes. Shampoo as normal and rinse.

Body Moisturizer

Mix 4 Tablespoons honey, 2 Tablespoons lavender oil, and 2 cups almond oil in a large bottle. Apply as needed onto wet skin.
