Apply honey mixed with water to your scalp. Leave it on for about an hour and it will eradicate dandruff. Repeat if necessary, but one application should do the job.

One other very important treatment honey is used for is in healing bedsores on patients. You want to use honey that has almost turned to sugar. It will begin to granulate over a long period of time. Just apply it on the sore and cover lightly with a sterile, gauze pad. Lightly dab it on burns and scrapes and wonderful healing occurs.

Manuka can reduce symptoms of acid reflux and help heal your esophagus and can help to treat gum disease. It is also a natural aphrodisiac.

The best part in using this wonderful product is, of course, the flavor. Stir it up with a small amount of soft butter and spoon onto a hot biscuit and enjoy.

Please be aware that the processed honey you purchase at any commercial outlet or grocery store is not the same as locally produced and raw, unprocessed honey and does not have the healing properties you need. Also, do not give honey to infants under a year old because their immune systems are still developing and if they should get some botulism, their little systems cannot fight it off like an adult.

As always, be sure to consult your physician before using any natural remedies or before changing your healthcare regimen, especially if you have allergies, are currently experiencing health problems, or are taking any medication.
