Not Tonight Honey, I’m Having a Spa Treatment

Sometimes the best beauty treatments can be found in your own kitchen for just a fraction of what a store bought, and often chemical laden version might cost.

Honey helps absorb water and retain moisture in your skin and hair. Mixed with other ingredients found in your kitchen, it is the perfect base for natural beauty aids.

Mix warm olive oil with honey and leave it on your damp hair for 15-30 minutes before thoroughly rinsing it out, to deep condition your tresses.

Add a dollop to your bath, to soften while you soak.

Mix honey with coarse sea salt for a natural and sweet smelling skin exfoliator.

While you are relaxing and enjoying your beauty treatment, sip a little honey, lemon and hot water. Honey raises your insulin level slightly and allows the tryptophan (that substance that makes us sleepy after eating turkey or drinking warm milk) to enter the brain more easily, promoting a good night’s sleep. It is also said to soothe a sore throat, or upset stomach.

Why not make tonight the night to spend enjoying your honey?
