“The bee’s s**t or vomit has become the human’s feast. What’s so bad with that?”
– Sarah Ifidon

 

Well, honey is as edible as it comes, even if the thought of where it originates from might not be so appealing. Its health benefits exceed being the perfect sugar supplement. It has now become a skin care regime for almost anyone who cares to try something new. According to legend, even Cleopatra adopted this as a beauty arsenal.

 

Honey is the new and improved skin and hair care supplement that exceeds all the chemical-infused products. Why drown your skin and hair in products with weird chemical ingredients when you can go the safe route with what actually works? Even more so, with the raw and unpasteurised honey, you’d experience a magical switch from bland to fab!

 

It’s vital that the honey you use still contains its healthy bacteria to be effective. This will activate your immune system and help with inflammation and redness, as well as heal blemishes.
