I love to use natural products on my hair and skin. Here are some fun Natural Cosmetic Uses for Honey!
Honey Facial Toner:
In a blender or food processor, blend 1 tablespoon of honey and 1 peeled, cored apple. Smooth over face; leave on for 15 minutes. Rinse with cool water. Leaves face feeling clean and refreshed!
Honey Moisture Mask:
Mix 2 tablespoons of honey with 2 tablespoons of warm milk. Smooth over face and neck. Leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse with warm water.
Honey Cleansing Scrub:
Mix 1 tablespoon of honey with 2 tablespoons of ground almonds and 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice. Rub gently, messaging over face. Rinse with warm water. Gently exfoliates the skin.
Add 1/4 cup of honey to a warm bath for a fragrant, softening bath.
Honey Hair Shine:
Stir 1 teaspoon of honey into 4 cups of warm water. Blondes-for extra shine add a squeeze of lemon. After shampooing, poor mixture through hair. Do not rinse-dry as usual.
Honey Hair Conditioner:
Mix 1/2 cup of honey and 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil (for dry hair). (Use 2 tablespoons for normal hair.) Work a small amount at a time through hair until coated. Cover hair with a shower cap, leave on 30 minutes. Remove shower cap, shampoo well and rinse. Dry hair as usual.
Great recipes! Thanks for sharing. I’ve got my eye on a couple to try.
