    One of my favorite herbal medicines is a homemade burn slave. Got a sun burn or other type of burn? Mix honey and aloe vera and apply to the burn 3X a day.(please do an allergy check first and make sure your not allergic to either item/never feed honey to a child under 1year) Ancient Egyptians used to use honey to treat burns( when tested in modern times by scientists, they found the honey actually increases the rate at which the burns heal)This is because honey has antiseptic and antibacterial properties. So ladies throw a little honey/lemon juice on for a face mask-leave on 15 minutes(this will help zap zits and leave your skin soft!)

    Sounds good ladyapril, hopefully it’s local raw honey, that’s the best… the stuff they sell in the stores in the little bears and such are often a mere shadow of its former self, sometimes it’s not even 100% honey…

    A few days ago I wanted to do a face masque, I was eating a banana so I saved the last inch of the banana, mashed it, poured in some raw honey and some lemon, I applied this to my freshly washed face and neck, I left it for about half an hour then rinsed it off… my face felt baby smooth. A good addition to that would have been some plain yogurt.
