Many Uses for Honey

For people trying to cut refined and processed foods out of their diets, honey is the original all-natural and unprocessed sweetener. And, since it's sweeter than white sugar, you can use less of it when baking:
  • Use ¾ cup plus 1 tablespoon of honey for every cup of sugar
  • Decrease the liquid in the recipe by ¼ cup
  • Add ½ teaspoon of baking soda for every cup of honey
  • Reduce your oven temperature by 25 degrees
Another reason honey is great to use when baking is because it's hygroscopic (water-attracting): it absorbs moisture from the air, keeping your baked goods moist and delicious for days.

Alternative to Cough Syrup:
An all natural alternative to chemical cough syrup. 

Skin Care 
Honey can be used in making effective facials. Mix one or two tablespoons of honey with one-third cup finely ground oatmeal. Oatmeal can be ground in a blender. The amount of honey used depends on your thickness preference. Blend in a teaspoonful of rose water or tap water. Clean face thoroughly. Spread facial mixture evenly over face. Relax for ten minutes to one half hour. Remove with a soft washcloth and warm water. Rinse with cold water or use an astringent. Use this facial once a week for improved softness in the skin. This treatment also works well for oily complexions.
