There isn’t a better antiseptic in this world than natural honey. It can be used with success internally and externally as well, for a wide variety of problems, since it has an excellent antibiotic action as well. Honey is great for dry skin and hair, especially during the cold season, as it has a soothing effect. It is great to have when you experience a sore throat, due to a cold, as it can calm down the discomfort. But its uses are more major. In tea, it is highly recommended to add honey when it is warm, not hot, as it can destroy the honey’s properties.
