Honey is produced by bees from the nectar of flowers. Besides being a super food with instant energy action, it also has medicinal properties, being used as a base for remedies since the dawn of humanity. Honey is a rich natural source of energy and can replace sugar. Its daily use stimulates the immune system by preventing the body from many ailments caused mainly by viruses and bacteria.
Honey has antiseptic, digestive, diuretic and soothing properties. Furthermore, it can be used in the kitchen in many ways as a substitute for sugar. Honey helps fight colds and sore throats, it helps healing some stomach problems, it acts as a relaxing substance, has a gentle laxative power and it helps in the prevention of free radicals, which are responsible for the aging of the skin. Its high energy value makes it the perfect 'fuel' in the fight against stress symptoms.
The use of honey in cosmetics has played a very important role, thanks to its nutritive, emollient, remineralizing, astringent and moisturizing properties. Dermatologists suggest a basic recipe: blend honey with papaya seeds and apply it onto the skin; which will turn silky. Honey is also widely used in hair care. Many of the hair straightening techniques called Brazilian blowout contain honey in their composition, since honey acts on the softening and toning of hair fibers, leaving locks smoother, softer and silkier.
